Linking up with Andrea, etc. right here!
What a week! Going from Spring Break to back to work in person (transitioning from virtual) made for quite a lot this week! It was so good to see my students in real life! They are distanced and wearing masks and classes are tiny, but it’s still good. I forgot how physically demanding the job is. Plus, we are teaching more without a break. But, it is the first week and it will get easier once we acclimate.
Here are some photos from my camera roll this week that I would like to call my favorites….
The PTA greeted us with a bag of plastic Starbuck’s cups, coupons for Starbuck’s, Chick Fil A, Wendy’s, and Heine Brothers local coffee, Kleenex, disinfecting wipes, snacks, and office supplies. They hand delivered them to our classrooms and it was really sweet. High school teachers usually don’t get all the swag that the elementary teachers get – just sayin’!
Tom is Ernie’s favorite person. I’m his second favorite. Tom always asks Ernie where his Kroger bag for his waste is when it’s time to walk him. So, I started putting his Kroger bag under his collar to bring to his Daddy and Tom thought it was funny. Hey, we don’t have kids at home to laugh about so our dog gets the attention now.
It makes me laugh to see Ernie like this when his bed is so close. Funny story – This is the dining room where his bed is. We bought him an identical bed and it is in our new master bedroom at the foot of our bed. He won’t use that one. We cannot figure out why! He will sleep on our bedroom rug but not on his bed. And, of course, he sleeps with us in our bed every night.
I started back at school on Monday while the boys were still on Easter break. They didn’t go back until Monday late afternoon. I got this sweet message from Mason around 9:00 am on my first day.
The buds on this tree have gotten even prettier this week.
I love being an aunt! This niece was inducted into Honor Society and she looks so grown up!
I loved Ruth’s comment; I talked about hoping that blogs were not becoming obsolete on my Tuesday post.
I have been carrying my credit cards and wallet stuff around in a little pouch because I didn’t have a wallet. I decided it was time to get one. But, I thought I would run back to my consignment shop Sassy Fox and check there first. Sure enough, they had this Fossil wallet for $8!
Wednesday is our day to work at home. I thought I would show you the beautiful flowering trees now.
Ernie and I had a lovely walk in 70 degree weather!
What were your favorites this week? I hope you had many!
Thanks for reading,
P.S. – On Tuesday it was my Blogiversary of 3 years and I posted about it here. Thank you for your kind comments that were also my favorites this week!
On Wednesday I posted in a “Currently” link up and did what I wore.
Yesterday, I talked about consignment shopping and gave tips.
