What I’m going to wear:

One of my favorite T-shirts

What I am going to eat:

I made a casserole last night for a warm, comforting lunch. Just heat and eat!


Stocked up at Walgreen’s yesterday

Plenty of books:

I hope to finish two library books checked out, and I hope to put a dent in my TBR shelves.

These two library books I will start on first thing…

Really good page turners

Almost finished, just a couple of short chapters left

Even set for emergencies like a power outage…LOL

I dropped the little Kindness Message in coffee. Gives it an antique look, don’t you think?

There goes the seven o’clock chime of my mantel clock, and WE’RE OFF!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 plus years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
