Currently ~ Fabulous February!

Happy February Friends!  I'm so excited to link up with Anne from Anne in Residence for:


I'm looking forward to all the fun holidays this month!  We have already celebrated Groundhog Day and are now learning about Chinese New Year.  My students are excited to exchange Valentines, and I just love emphasizing kindness and empathy.


In April, my husband and I are planning a trip to Florida.  I LOVE seeing my aunt (my mother's sister) who has Alzheimer's.  I believe that the soul has a memory, and I know that she'll remember that I care so much about her.

I recently read an article about Lauderdale by the Sea in the Boston Globe.  Since my husband insists on staying somewhere different than Delray Beach, I'm looking into this new place.  Plus, it's only a thirty minute drive to the facility where my aunt is in Delray.

Here's a picture of sunrise from our trip last year:


Tonight I made Cajun Chicken Pasta using jarred Alfredo sauce.  This recipe is pretty spot on to the one that I make.  I always use Purdue thin sliced chicken breasts ~ they really make a difference!


My 11 year old dog insists on waking me up at 4:40 a.m.  Consequently, I've been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix.  It has subtitles so I have to focus and pay attention ~ which means that I can't watch this show while I'm correcting!  The first step of the process involves placing all of your clothes in one big pile.  UGH!  That seems so overwhelming!  It's much more relaxing to watch other people tidying up!

Once a year, I reorganize and tidy up all my teacher "stuff."  It takes forever!


I'm looking forward to wearing my new polar bear sweater from the Loft.  Aren't those bear too cute?

It's been a pleasure to blog during the week!  I hope you're enjoying February where you live!  Thanks for visiting the blog today!


  1. Oh my god, that sweater is adorable!!!!


  2. Always good to have a Florida trip to look forward to! And that sweater really is adorable.

    1. I sure do love Florida! The sweater is perfect, too!

  3. Your visit with your aunt will be good. I'm sure it means a lot to her to have you there, even if she can't express it. I totally agree that the soul has a memory. There's a sweet lady at my church who has alzheimer's. She is often confused, but when we sing worship songs and hymns, she always knows every word. And when we're talking about the Bible, she often joins meaningfully in the discussion. Thanks for sharing another of your morning messages!
    Laughter and Consistency
