Hard to believe that another spring break has already come and gone. Last weekend, the week loomed in front of me, full of possibility...I was worried that I would be bored because I had nothing planned for the entire week.
Bored I was not.
When I wasn't eating, sleeping or hanging out with friends. I was actually very productive.
I did a lot of writing, both for this blog, and my Master's class.
I did some research on a couple of things I want to try in my classroom.
I started creating a presentation on technology for two upcoming conferences.
I organized paperwork for a retreat I am hosting in April.
I spent a lot of time just doing nothing, resting, drinking coffee, enjoying my screen porch....reading...movies....hanging out with my husband.
I made lists for the weeks ahead.
The week actually ended up being so full of special moments and memories.....
Saturday: Brunch with my cousins at Cracker Barrel. Irish dinner with friends--I made a yummy Reuben casserole, green pin wheels, and Reuben cupcakes.
Sunday: Breakfast at Norma's--Greek Skillet. Movie day, I just finished Gone Girl (the book) and we watched the film...and a couple of other non-noteworthy movies.
Monday: Crystal Bridges, Van Gogh to Rothko exhibit, bike ride, day spent in NW Arkansas at Puritan and Apple Blossom.
Tuesday: Husband off work, spent time landscaping. Shrimp corn dogs with friends--stopped at several spots in Downtown Joplin to see their St. Patrick's day decorations.
Wednesday: Rainy movie day. Watched documentary, Rich Hill on Netflix, highly recommend. Rearranged the bedroom, shopped for a new duvet cover online. Took my niece to see Cinderella at the theater, with popcorn and Dr. Pepper and rainbow sour gummy candy.
Thursday: Rainy day in Springfield. Lunch with a friend at Aviary, shopping at FM fabrics, Tuesday Morning and listening to a book on tape. Had a Thin Mint concrete from Andy's for dinner---I love my friend, she paused before lunch to make sure we knew our plan for dessert before we ordered ;-)
Friday: Running errands before 10 a.m., jelly beans and caramel latte for breakfast. Found out I got accepted into a program at MU for the fall! Road trip to Frontenac---late night french fries dipped in cheese at Instant Karma.
Saturday: Recovered my vanity stool, did a little art journaling. French food with girlfriends--I made
Honey, mustard & crème fraîche baked chicken--it was amazing.
Sunday: Odd jobs around the house, yardwork. Dinner with friends--we are making Lobster and Brie Phyllo cupcakes with Irish butter---first time to make them and I am excited!
