Thursday Thoughts

I recently  challenged myself to post every day and so far I've done it!!  Yeah to me.  Except today I can't think of anything to write about so....I'm just going to write about my day!
I'm in the middle of watching The Dark Knight (Heath's last movie, audible sigh from me).  We had to stop it last night because it was getting too late for me.  My teenage son feels I need to see the movie (his rite of passage for me) even though I didn't want to see Heath in such a bizarre and scary role.  I don't like violence-surprise! and this movie has a ton of it yet I am going to grin and bare it for him an finish it tonight.

I am in the process of reading something very interesting, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel and Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  I have to finish by Monday evening for my book club meeting.  I dislike going and feeling unprepared.  When I started the book I kinda thought I wasn't going to like it because it's written in letter writing format between several characters.  Now that I'm more than a few pages into I've developed a relationship with the characters, especially Juliet.  She's written with such a great sense of humor!

I made a delicious potato soup for dinner specifically for the teenager; he had spacers added to his teeth preparing  for braces on Monday, the 16th.  His mouth is sore and his menu consists of yogurt w/ honey, chocolate pudding, chocolate ice cream and ramen noodles.  I thought the soup would change it up a bit but only my husband and I liked it.  I guess "delicious" depends on who you talk to...

We just came back from the high school play at my son's school and it was a very funny rendition of Arsenic and Old Lace.   I have to rent the movie and see Cary Grant as Mortimer!  I don't remember it being that funny but I was pretty young when I saw it!!

Oh, and my big news of the day was that I accomplished my observation today.  My principal came and watched my lesson with a small group of Special Needs students.  I read Big Red Barn and Goodnight Moon both by Margaret Wise Brown-we were looking for rhyming words. MWB was so amazing for her time.  the students loved both books and are ready to explore some of her other books next week. We put together rhyming cards and played a rhyming game on Scholastic's website.  It was a fun-filled 30 minutes of rhyming words and the observation went very well!!  One done, One still to go!

Okay, so a great, great day and I'm really looking forward to Saturday because I have a Saturday morning meeting at B & N, for coffee and book talks!  I hope your day went just as well!
