Joining up again with Anne from Anne In Residence to participate in her Currently August 2017 blog link up.
Currently August 2017 . . .
Snacking on – Blueberries, So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Yogurt as well as almonds and cashews. Although I’m beginning to add foods back in from being on the Interstitial Cystitis elimination diet, I’m still playing it safe with my snacks. I love putting frozen blueberries and a few drops of honey in the yogurt – it freezes the yogurt so it’s almost like eating ice cream!
Anticipating – The start of the new school year. Our school district is going back earlier than usual this year so that the school year can end before Memorial Day. My official day back is August 9 although I have to give a few staff developments before that date. The students start on Wednesday, August 16. It’s nice to start mid-week so the new routine will be eased into slowly! This is making for a shorter summer than normal but it sure will be nice come next May!
Borrowing – My last few hours of summer vacation. 🙄
Admiring – Teachers everywhere! Although I was a classroom teacher for 16 years but my current job is Instructional Technology Coach. So I’m not responsible for a class full of students. The teachers at our school spend weeks getting their classroom ready. They buy school supplies and materials out of their own money. And they would do anything to make a difference in the lives of their students. Teachers, no matter what grade, private, public or home school are the most dedicated people you will ever meet!
Purchasing – A new mattress that was long overdue. We’ve had the same firm mattress for many years. With my arthritis, sleeping on it was beginning to hurt my joints. So we purchased a plush pillow top. What a difference it has made! I am waking up without hurting joints! Yay!
