Ahhhhhh. I just love the feeling of unscheduled, unstructured time. It's seems like forever since I have slowed down to such a leisurely pace. I have actually heard things around me: crickets, birds, the clock ticking, music... All sounds that get ignored on a daily basis.
I'm not going anywhere or doing anything special this week. I am just enjoying the days--which seem, oddly, and incredibly, to last for hours and hours! Pure Bliss.
(I am quite amazed to posting this on April first. No fooling! Contrast this to March... when I posted my Currently on the last day of the month... after the linky was closed!)
Reading my "wrap up," it sounds like all I do is watch TV and eat ice cream! That's only partly true, really. I have done (a little) school work and a little (very little) organizing. Easter is around the corner, so there are church events to attend. And I have enjoyed a few walks--even in our drought-hampered state, the flowers are still so pretty this season. I just feel so blessed. And happy.
I have spent three days re-vamping my PowerPoint presentations for Social Studies. (There's proof: My TpT purchase list is growing daily!) Teaching a fifth/sixth combination is easy in some ways--until you consider social studies. Ancient civilizations and early American history have... well... very little in common. After the Land Bridge, we simply have to go our separate ways! In truth, it's been fun. Having time to research and find clip art and choose just-the-right-shade-of-blue is actually enjoyable to me... when I have time. Ahhhh. There it is again. Time.
Time: I love you so!
My name is Kim. (Yawn). On my blog, I have been Finding JOY in Sixth Grade for ages. And I'm quite used to being called Joy. I even answer when people call me that now! Alas, there is likely a grade change ahead for me. But I'll save that story for another day. TODAY is a perfect time to be JOYful and JOY-filled!
Let's keep the joy going. Farley is always one of my favorite joy-bringers. So, head on over and link up--and then leave some joy for those who linked up around you. It's like sharing a carton of ice cream. But you might have to share with someone else. At the moment, both Ben and Jerry are looking a little on the empty side!
See you there!
