A day of endings, but also of tidying so I can begin on a positive note:)

Teaching:

We were certainly busy today, but still didn’t get to everything I wanted to. I started the day by coming in to a report that one of my boys was kissing another boy on the lips yesterday 🙄. So I got to inform his mom and talk to the class. Ugh! Just what one wants to hear about her son first thing in the day😂

The children got to tour the school looking at all the box projects. There were some very cool ones! The imagination some children have is amazing! We had a grade two student build circuits and create a sound effect board out of his box! Here are two from my class: a cat and a unicorn. I wish I had grabbed a picture of the boxtrolls though, so cute!

It was an early dismissal today for parent teacher conferences , but thankfully I only had two so I got some time to tidy my classroom:). I just want to know how come when I do one thing, I immediately think of ten others I could also do! Teaching seems to be a job where you could work 24/7-365 days and still not be done!

Reading:

I finally finished my next book from NetGalley, His Wicked Charm by Candace Camp. It had been a while since I had read one of her books, but I’ve enjoyed many of her past series.

Thank you to NetGalley for the free copy in exchange for an unbiased review.

This is Candace Camp at her best. The story is of Delilah, a very prim and proper young debutante who is perhaps not what she seems and Constantine, the debonair smooth talking brother of her best friend’s husband. The two cannot seem to get along for even a moment, but maybe that’s not quite how it seems.

This book centres around an occult theme which I was not expecting at all. However, even if it isn’t my regular read, this book was fast paced, entertaining and thoroughly engaging. I wanted to know what was coming next! Camp did not disappoint and the action was in full swing by the third chapter and continued through to the last page. I loved how Delilah was being pulled in two different directions and really had to search deep for her true self. I also liked how Con had two very different sides to his nature and Lilah came to realize both were valuable.

I think anyone who enjoys a little mystery, the occult or just an entertaining historical romance will enjoy this book!

Exercise:

The beautiful sunshine tempted me to go for a run before my class tonight as I read a blogger who regularly runs before her spin classes, but I figured when I’m sick is not the time to try this out:(

It was my last athletic yoga class tonight. I’m in a conundrum as my colleague has signed up again, but while I love the class, I really need a regular yoga class for the stretching! I wish you could do both on the rec pass but I’d need a pass for the regular yoga classes and then a separate $90 fee for the athletic yoga class:( I haven’t decided what to do:( In a perfect world I would be rich and could do both!

Well, I’m off to bed so I can survive one more day with the munchkins!

Have fun!

  1. Never enough time when you’re a teacher. You do a great job though so no worries. You’re supposed to be resting and getting better, not out for runs! 😀

  2. there is never enough hours in the day, especially when you are trying to clean your classroom and teach. Plus I’m sure you feel like you are playing catch up for all the days you were sick. Hope you enjoy your last day before spring break.

  3. Those box projects are pretty cool and a 2nd grader making a circuit board??!! I’m still not doing well on the reading front. I’m hoping once we are moved into the new house that I can get a routine down. Right now I am packing and purging household items and don’t even know where my book is!! Two more weeks and hopefully I can be somewhat stress free!! I loved the yoga class that I used to attend, but it was a struggle to get there on time due to after work traffic. Maybe with my move and being closer I can get back to it.

    1. I’ll keep my fingers crossed you get more reading and yoga in. I’m sure your life will just seem calmer after the move!

  4. I will never forget the day my youngest discovered ‘movie kisses’. He has and continues to be very demonstrative and kissing those he loved was spontaneous and wonderful. Fortunately, the movie kiss was the one he saw on “Lady and the Tramp” and only involved lips! 🙂

  5. Ha ha!! The cat looks like it’s crying! But, so cute. Some ingenious kids there! And, I love that you have to go through all that work just for a little boy kissing another little boy! Aren’t we supposed to be an accepting society now-a-days? Lol!! Oh, children….

    1. I’m so glad you tried them. I’m thinking I’ll make them for my friend’s st Patrick’s day party tomorrow night:)

    1. Lol thanks! I feel so slow compared to some of the other bloggers I follow. It really just comes down to finding the balance between knitting, reading, baking and exercising:)
