Donuts and Chat

Good morning, friends. Happy Friday! Here are a few happy thoughts I'm enjoying this morning:
* A friend brought me a chocolate donut and we spent some time laughing this morning. * My daughter and one of her best friends exchanged clothes. Can she already be old enough for that? * Well, she's still young enough to have clubs with secret handshakes. Three of them are practicing right now. * It's Friday!! * I have more dancing planned with my students. * The weather is nice enough for outside recess. Oh, thank God! * I have a hot pink cyclamen glowing in the window of my classroom; a gift from a student. * Figure skating was absolutely stunning last night. * I have a new hero. I've never been so happy to see someone earn a medal. * There are six boxes of books sitting on the floor of my classroom just waiting for us to explore them. * Sloane and Daddy have a date tonight. So do I. Mine is at home. Alone. *
I hope your weekend is full of delights.

Happy Friday to you too!
I love the boxes of books waiting to be explored. We just got the first English readers at my school this morning. I'm giving them to my students next week. I'm so excited! Their first (simplified) stories in English; 'Little Women' and 'Oliver Twist' will keep each other company over the weekend.

Happy Friday to you too! What an awesome idea for a post this is. I especially love those dates at home alone. They are so rare in my house. Enjoy it!

Kelli said...

Ahhhhhh.....an evening at home...ALONE! Heavenly! And I envy you. Of course when I DO have an evening at home alone, I feel just that...alone. I have most of my days alone so I guess I should be satisfied.
Love your happy thoughts! Keep sharing! :)

I love Fridays! And I wish I had six boxes of books waiting for me! That would be divine.

GraceGal said...

Ohhhh, boxes of books! What a delight. I loved the figure skating, too. Even though I'm from the U.S. I didn't want anyone to win that Bronse medal but Joannie Rochette. What an inspiration and and a true Olympic moment!

Jeanie said...

These ARE happy thoughts. I needed happy thoughts as I suck down lunch and sneak a few blogs, knowing full well I have to go back to a terrible mess when I'm done!

Relyn, I have a new hero too, it amazed me that she was able to hold herself so together. It had to be heart wrenching for her. She handled herself with utter grace. I was so glad she got a medal. Glad you have a beautiful flower. You asked me about blue poppies, I have grown them, I take all the seeds from my poppies and just throw them in the ground. Usually the pink and reds, but occassionally a blue one comes up.
I love poppies. Have you grown the blue ones. Have a great weekend.

It sounds like bliss, especially the boxes of books and the date alone. Oh, and the dancing and the pink cyclamen and . . . oh, you know, all of it.

I LOVED your comments on my post. And I loved that you went all second grade to get to the front of the line!!! Made me blush.

xoxo Gigi

Happy Friday indeed! Have a delightful time along at home. Those times are the very best for the soul.

The Canadian skater is the same age as my blonde daughter, and I'm the same age as her mother. I was holding my breath for her last night and I just couldn't stop feeling her pain and such sadness that her mom wasn't there to watch that shining moment. She (and her dad) are my heroes too.

Jaime said...

I couldn't hold back the tears when I watched her skate, when I watched her win the medal. I cannot believe how much emotion these olympics have stirred in me!

Rita said...

My weekend was filled with painting Darren's porch and the front of his house! But I am thankful that I could do that and thankful that he is my son!

Jeanie said...

What a beautiful horse! And, lovely thoughts!
