What? Still looks like me? Oh well, what can you do?
Anyway, while I was awaiting the aforementioned new glasses, I did a little shopping. I went to the Dollar Store and got some odds and ends for the classroom. I found some cool stickers that have pictures of coins and the amounts of the coins. I got some preprinted sight word cards that I will put up on a word wall. (Much less spelling things for kids during writing time if they can look at the wall and find the words. ) I also got some new plastic shoe boxes for my A.R. books (the old ones were really broken up.) I went to the fabric store and got 5 different colors of fabric to use as backer on my bulletin boards. I really like using fabric vs. paper. It looks nice all year. I went to Chez-Target and got a new kind of saline that was recommended by the eye doc for we of the older set.
On the way home, I swung by the public library and picked up a couple of books. I'm kind of looking for some new read-alouds for the new year. Although I love starting my year with a Kate DiCamillo author study (I read The Tale of Despereaux, The Mysterious Journey of Edward Tulane, and Because of Winn Dixie,) I tend to have less favorite books for later in the year. I picked up a Charlie Bone book (number one in the series was checked out, so I took number two.)
Charlie Bone books are sort of in the same vein as Harry Potter. Kids with magical powers. What I know about Charlie so far is that he can look at photographs and hear the conversations that were taking place about the people in the photos.
I also picked up this book. I know nothing about it, but the cover appealed to me.
I watered my flowers and made a spaghetti dinner for Bob with whole wheat pasta and red sauce with Italian sausage and ground beef. I completed a couple pieces for that Stained Glass afghan this evening. Knitting group was a bust tonight, as everybody is busy with the holiday. So I sat at home, had a text conversation with Doreen, knit, and I'm still watching the Twins in a tied ballgame. All in all, the weather was beautiful, and I had an On the Go kind of day.
Be grateful and see the beauty in each day!
