Right Now

Over at I Love It All, Monica shared a Right Now post and it was a reminder of how much I like that kind of 'snapshot' into my here and now.

excited that we get to hang out with my family tomorrow, doing some quadding - happy that I'm actually posting on the blog again!

on the to do list
bake a batch of oatmeal coconut raisin cookies to take along.

my guilty pleasure
raspberries with brown sugar and cream - just finished a dish of them!

tv shows: Amazing Race Canada - Calgary last week, Yellowknife next week.

dreaming about
all the great meals we are going to have this winter as I restock the freezer with produce from our garden and a rhubarb saskatoon crisp, on tap for this weekend.

grateful for
warm weather and sunshine - and for 37 years together as we celebrated our anniversary this week ❤

Thanks for the inspiration, M!

Missing In Action

The last 3 weeks have been crazy busy with subbing as school ended, birthday celebrations, gardening, then planning for and now teaching summer school.  This poor neglected blog has definitely been put on the back burner but tonight I was inspired to pop in and let you know that I'm actually still alive :))

The lovely Kelle Hampton posted this little snippet tonight and I've lifted her idea to share with you.  

What I'm listening to: CBC news as I travel 35 minutes to work and back every day
What I'm reading: The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate (to both Language Arts classes at school), The Book Whisperer by Donalynn Miller and writing samples
Something I splurged on: new wedge sandals
Something that was free: lunch made by a teacher friend and dessert from another colleague - such lovely treats!
Something I'm looking forward to: the wedding of a good friend this weekend

And with that, I'm back to typing quiz questions as there are only 2 days of classes left.  Back soon, I promise!
