sooo, my sweet friend shannon has lead me to yet another fantastic idea..
a week's worth of daily simple pleasures..
if you know me at all, you probably know my temptation is to brainstorm them all right now.. and not only would i list 7, but 17..
and of course i couldn't wait to look through all my recent photos to exemplify -or inspire- and then confirm each one!
..but, i will refrain.. i will chill and be patient and let tomorrow's simple pleasure reveal itself in due time..
for more, check out shannon's blog ..and see "simple pleasures.. day 1" to check out the other two girls' (aimee and susan's) blogs who are doing the same.. <3
..i chose this picture to depict/illustrate one of my very favorite simple pleasures.. playing with my shadow -or someone else's- and enjoying the kids i work with.. :)
i officially have two weeks off!!!
...i'm not even sure what to do with myself!!
i just did my budget and was able to stretch the paycheck i just received through the end of the month (including a not-so-neccesary-car payment!!)
..sooo, i'm resisting the urge to visit barnes and ask for hours i don't really need..
while i enjoy working and would love the extra cash, i think it might be a good idea to force myself to slow all the way down!!
..maybe now i'll actually read some of the books i've been checking out from the library! :)

lovin' summer with these little guys, that's all...
i have rising second graders this summer and, let me tell ya, the first few days were a rude awakening!! (lots of tears!! --theirs, not mine)
..but, i've since rediscovered stickers and the age-old art of positive reinforcement, so we're getting along much better now! :)
