Friday March 1, 2013
One of my great loves is books, words, and the images created by them. Hang around for my last fave, a quote that celebrates just that.
I’m linking up today with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for Friday’s Fave Five, where we recount the top five blessings of the week. Come join us!
My favorites for this week:
1. A cool snap! I know some of you are eagerly anticipating spring, and March represents that. But here in South Florida, the weather can be downright boring and devoid of seasons. I actually miss the winter and wearing my sweaters and jackets. We’re having a bit of a cool snap…cool enough to wear those sweaters. And I like it!
2. Getting my students’ rough drafts graded. I have about 88 students, therefore, 88 rough drafts. (For some, emphasis on “rough.”) It’s quite a task to get through them. And I try to give them as much help as possible so they can fix and create a great final paper. It takes a while. And I’m done! Now they’re working on making them works of art that will merit a great grade. (Then I’ll be grading again…)
3. Spring Break coming. One more week of school, and it will be Spring Break for us. One son is coming home—his break is the same as ours. Another is coming after Easter. We are so looking forward to having boys in the house.
4. Dr. Seuss. How magical his books are. They read themselves; they practically sing! His birthday is March 2, and today is being celebrated in schools as Read Across America Day, coordinated with his birthday. In the book doctor’s honor, I penned some lines. They lack his special magic, of course, but if you’re a book lover, you should click on over and take a look. (There's also a picture of Aiden there...)
5. A quote:
“Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be.” (anonymous, as far as I could tell)
If you’ve been here before, you know I always feel this way…but with Read Across America Day, I felt this was particularly apropos.
Between the pages of a book is truly lovely to me!
Wishing you lovely moments this week,
