I’m ready for a few quiet mornings. It’s a treat to have a couple of hours this morning. Hoping for an entire quiet day tomorrow as I do have to go to work later this afternoon.
Joining in with Happy Homemaker Monday, hosted by Sandra of Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom, and all the other lovely bloggers who link up there.
Rainy and cooler! It’s like a little fall preview but I’m sure the humidity’s coming. High of 72 tomorrow. Highest predicted temperatures all week are 84 on Friday and 90 on Saturday.
Things That Make Me Happy
Monday morning coffee, quiet mornings, flowers, watching the birds. We saw a hummingbird in the blue flowers as we left for school this morning!
Book I’m Reading
Read Finished All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire yesterday. Still trying to get through Carpe Diem, Seizing The Day In A Distracted World by Roman Krznaric
Probably not much as I work all day. Maybe a Parks and Recreation episode or two on Netflix when I get home. Or whatever my husband happens to be watching.
For Dinner Tonight
Not sure as I won’t be home until after 6. Their options: leftover Rotisserie chicken, taco meat, pizza, French toast. Husband’s choice.

Looking Forward To This Week
A slower pace and spending some free time at home.
Lesson Learned The Past Few Days
As much as I enjoyed working a full schedule last week and just being myself, I’m not quite ready to give up the freedom being a substitute “on call” teacher gives me. I’m certainly going to appreciate my days doing stuff around here a bit more this week.
On My Mind
Suddenly, a Willie Nelson song. Oh dear.
