After so much rain lately, I looked out the classroom window and everything was sparkling in the sunshine- so pretty!


Today was a busy day with a lesson this morning using the book What Does Peace Feel Like? This is definitely a book I need to buy- it was great! The children had a worksheet to fill out with their own ideas afterwards. They found the ideas came easily, but answering in a complete sentence did not.

We did some skip counting, practices our poem for the assembly on Thursday and worked on our Poppy wreath for the assembly. Nothing too exciting, except the fact I now have thirteen kids working on sight word booklets. It’s going to make for some very busy mornings as they come to read them to me!


I tried a new masseuse today who was a guy. It’s a first for me, but so far I don’t hurt. I’m hoping it stays this way as he is just across the street from me so would be super convenient!


I finally managed to get my sheets changed and my new duvet cover on. I bought the wrong size:(. The duvet is a king and my duvet is a queen. It’s a final sale so hopefully it won’t bug me too much!

The pattern isn’t quite as strong as I would have liked. I’ll have to do my best to be neat and tidy and not get stains from my morning tea on it!


I received a free copy of Kait Nolan’s newest Wishful novella, Once Upon a Rescue

This story of Brooke and Hayden is a sweet introduction to the winter season. Hayden is the sweetheart that helps Brooke out of a tough spot at her animal rescue centre. It turns out he’s sweet all the way through.

The story is short, but the characters are well developed and the reader isn’t left with questions, but is instead left with a satisfyingly sweet feeling. Definitely a worth reading novella!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I have also started and finished my next NetGalley book, Christmas in Cape Cod. It was a lovely book about a man and his best friend. Maddie has had feelings for Asa for a long time, but he finally realizes his feelings during the Christmas season. It’s a sweet friend’s to more short novel. I liked how the characters were portrayed and the plot had a good pacing to it. The only thing I didn’t love was that there wasn’t enough explanation of the back story. I still have questions. It is a good read for the holiday season however.

See this is what I get like when I have a goal- single minded. Sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes it’s not. This time, it’s definitely not good for my knitting!

Clean November Challenge:

Not a perfect day, but not too bad either. I had an extra apple and two rice crackers.

I’m going back to my reading now!

Have fun!

  1. I have a queen and usually but king. I like the extra material my hubby is a cover stealer. Glad the weather broke I am looking forward to some cool weather after all the rain here has passed on. Have a great week📚

      1. It is good to have some quiet time before you start your day – it may be the last time you can have your thoughts to yourself before you go to bed that evening! My quiet time is walking to/from the Park and there if I don’t talk to anyone (except the squirrels … I always talk to them when I feed them … perhaps that is why they are so friendly) (the peanuts don’t hurt either).
