Thursday Thoughts

Okay, maybe nobody else is counting but I promised to blog every day through November and I'm trying so hard to stick to it.  I finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society the other night; two days after my church book club met to discuss it...I loved the book and our meeting!  I did have trouble with the letter-style of the book at first but then the characters grabbed me.  I would like to live in Guernsey-seemed so comforting in its pastoral environment.

I'm exhausted with lots on my plate and here is why:
 my mini-list:

1. Tonight I made 50 chocolate-covered pretzel sticks; festooned with Christmas theme sprinkles for our church bazaar, which takes place on Saturday.  Mine do not look like the photo but they do look pretty great-photo to follow soon.

2. I am organizing a team of volunteers to move our library from old to our new building right after Thanksgiving.  Lots of volunteers and not enough boxes so far.

3. Tuesday night we had our school literacy night-it was great and Maribeth Boelts was lovely!
4. Tomorrow my principal "observes" me for teaching licensure renewal.
5. My mother is calling me more than twice a day to make arrangements for upcoming holiday break, from which I need a break from already!! Love you Mom!

6. And last but really most important my teenager is sick with an unknown non-H1N1 virus-we think he has water poisoning from drinking stale water out of a bottle left too long in his basement gaming room.  Uhh, and this has caused him to miss two days of school and probably tomorrow.  This occurred one day after he had top shelf braces applied.  Really, how fun can this be for him??

7.  I love this kind of post from others because it gives me a glimpse into someone else's life yet when I do it I feel like I'm whining.
And you out there-how is your week??

Be Peaceful-

I'm not keeping track, but I did wonder what was going on when I checked your blog last night and saw you hadn't posted. I thought maybe something had happened with your sick kid at home. Glad to know you're still around.

I still haven't gotten around to reading that one, but I have it here whenever I'm ready.

The pretzels look yummy, I love salt and chocolate.
