Happy March! Is it going to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb this year?
February went by so quickly that I cannot even believe it! Linking up today with Tanya, Heather, and many more here!
I have big news… Thursday night after I had already scheduled my Friday Favorites to post our school board voted to go back to in=person learning in our district of almost 100,000 students. Elementary will go first and high school will go last. My high school will be starting on Monday, April 5, which is the Monday after spring break and each student will attend 2 days per week (divided by the alphabet) with Wednesdays being asynchronous. Many schools have been doing this already and in my opinion, it is the safest way to return with half of our 2000 person student body. I am nervous, excited, and a bit worried about how to teach in person under the new guidelines.
Friday night, Tom and I got in on the Friday night fish for Lent. This is half a portion and I am so glad we split.
I started Ginny and Georgia and it is so cute. I have to admit that I did not finish Firefly Lane and I didn’t gush over Bridgerton. This, however, is really well written and pretty good acting. It is not appropriate for young kids or even young teens. There is some content that I think is pretty adult.
Saturday morning I had time with Mason! We walked around on my favorite street,,,
and went to Blue Dog Bakery…
where we ordered vanilla lattes, breakfast sandwiches, and two macaroons.
Mason had lots of homework and an online play rehearsal and Jack had plans with friends but did come home for a bit.
I soaked up every bit of sun on the deck and finished a book and started another. I wore black leggings and my white booties for our little outing.
I am going to do a book review I think, but let’s just say this book was meh. It had potential being set on Nantucket and with food descriptions and three sisters but the characters fell flat and the writing was not great.
This is by the author of Simple Wild and I cannot put it down!
For dinner, it was Tom, Mason, and I. I made Mexican potatoes and an 80s Doritos taco salad. It was good!
I turned on the lights and sat outside for just a bit because it was pretty cold.
Sunday Mason was off with friends but Tom, Jack and I went to the outdoor mall and looked around in the book store and a couple of other shops.
It rained a bunch but then it cleared up and I read outside with my crackle candle and an Irish coffee.
For dinner we ordered Mexican. Oops – I forgot we had Mexican Saturday night, but really, couldn’t you have it every night?
Now, I have 4 more weeks to work at home. I am going to savor it and I know I will miss the outdoor time the most, but we will only have 8 more weeks left of school.
I had a good and relaxing weekend. How was yours? Any highlights?
Thanks for reading!
