Hi everybody! How was your weekend? I will be linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and more so go right here!

I start working today. We have a day full of meetings and we are going to try this distance learning thing out. I will let you know how it goes!

Friday morning I had crescent rolls to use up so I made the sausage squares that I have posted about before.

I also had meetings on Friday but I took a break to take Ernie on a walk. I think it will be so important to take breaks. I am not used to sitting at a computer for so long.

I hope no one bought these – they have a really bad after taste. I like the lemonade one but maybe it is because it gets mixed well, but these are not good. Sorry if I influenced anyone negatively.

Saturday morning I made my iced coffee with instant coffee granules and half of a vanilla Premier Protein. It is so good! I will do the recipe on here soon. We took Ernie to swim in the river where we keep our boat. People are itching to go boating. It can be a good social distancing activity if it is just your family!

I did curbside pick up at the local hardware store to get birdseed. I am so happy seeing the birds visit my yard.

My nails are still a mess but that is o.k. I did them in white again.

It is a weird feeling. I feel so calm and unhurried. The neighborhood is so quiet. I love this little spot and enjoyed it so much this weekend. We have been blessed with just the best spring weather.

We supported a local pizza restaurant Friday night and a local Italian place Saturday night for Tom and I while the boys had something I cooked. I am not that worried about take out food, but I do immediately take it out of their containers and put it on plates and wash my hands really well.

Tom and I watched another livestream concert Saturday night.

Sunday it was time to get my act together and I spent about 3 hours doing lesson plans, parent communication, setting up Quizlets and – that sort of thing. I was done around lunch and needed some Vitamin D. Our deck is still drying from the stain we put on it and so I have to find sun where I can.

I spent the rest of Sunday reading, watching just a bit of t.v., straightening up, cooking dinner, and now as I am typing this Sunday evening I am getting ready to do a Zoom call with all the cousins on one side of the family. There are nine of us! I hope everyone remembers. I prepared some fun questions – the teacher in me!

Hope you had a good one!

  1. Happy Monday! New week, new possibilities! Good luck with your distance teaching!
    I started my Easter break with correcting some student short stories, not very painful, they are actually really good authors (must have a good teacher :-D).
    We are still at the cabin and I am discovering a new side about me; I love being outside in the “garden” (it’s in the middle of a forest!) and working on the grounds. Hard labor is great for my mind!
    Enjoy the sun! We actually had coffee outside yesterday, I LOVE it!

    1. Thank you! You are a wonderful teacher I am sure!
      I’m so glad you enjoy gardening – perfect time for that!
      There is nothing better than coffee outside except maybe a cocktail! Haha!


    1. It was really fun! My mom doesn’t want to do it because of her hair but I think we can convince her! Lol!
      I never thought I would have the chance to work from home so I’m looking at this as an opportunity! Thank you!
