My garden has been quite fruitful this summer. We have eaten beans, squash and tomatoes with every meal.
Two photos…harvests just two days apart.
Tomatoes for Everyone
So now that I have boasted about my dietary habits of this past week; it is now time to get to the purpose of today’s post. I was perusing Pinterest for stellar Back to School ideas for the first week of school…(sniffle, sniffle, weep, weep). I go back on Monday for a week of professional development, classroom preparation, and anything else that needs to be produced before the students return. Unfortunately, the intentions of my search were sidetracked, rather the “isn’t that pretty”, “very interesting” or “how funny” exploration took control.
So here are a few things are found….if I had a Pinterest board for this I’d call it Food & Beverage for Thought: Literally
all most of the cooking in the summer and Hubster does most all of the cooking during the school year…the quote below it true no matter who is cooking.
Yes, you did read my sniveling about going back to school…but truthfully, I am thankful to teach in a wonderful school with colleagues that often find me in awe of their work, a community of supportive families, and most appreciative of an administration who respect the faculty as professional. The health benefits and paycheck are decent perks as well.
Isn’t this one the truth….I estimate I will spend 40 plus hours without cake this school year.
I hated being relegated to the dish washing team when growing up…probably because I was the actual dishwasher. However since going out into the world and eventually having my own home, I loathe waking up to a sink full of dishes. Yes, life is too short and I suppose the dishes will wait, but loading the dishwasher is so fulfilling especially since it leaves me without “dish pan hands”.
Hopefully, I have left you with something to think about to begin the weekend.
I am off to get a mani/pedi as a back to school treat.
