I've just got to share the good stuff I read.

I love to read. I read every chance I get. If I read something really good, I want to share it with my friends and co-workers. I make copies of magazine articles, read aloud to my students, tell others about good books I'm reading, and keep a book with me at all times.

I love teaching and learning new things. I need a place to share some of the lessons and what my students and I learn. Since my teaching situation is different from everyone else's in my school, I would like to tell all of you in the blog-o-sphere about these great lessons.

Feel free to share what you are reading, teaching and learning with us in the comments.

Happy Boxing Day

Well, I don't know if that is the greeting for December 26 but had to try it. Yesterday was fun with family. Went to B & E's to watch Liam open presents. At 18 months he doesn't quite have the concept of presents and opening wrapped packages but he loved all the things he got. Then we came to our house and finished getting lunch ready. Joey & Jessie made good time from Memphis and we had lunch and time for presents again. I made Liam a navy corduroy jacket and fleece blanket with trucks all over it. Martin gave me five pairs of cute socks and four pairs of earrings. Be on the lookout for cats on my feet and ears.

Today Martin had to work but Joey, Jessie, and I went to see the Hunger Games movie # 2. It was actually better than the book. Ready to see the next one. Tomorrow the guests will drive home, Martin will be back at work, and I will get some sewing done. I have a zigzag quilt started for Alicia and have several ideas for quilts that I want to start. Then there is the list of unfinished quilts I need to complete.

Oh, and what am I reading these days? I picked up two free paperbacks at the library. They are mysteries written in the 1940's. The detective is a former governess, Miss Silver. Really enjoyed reading the first one and can't wait to read the next one. Hope there are more at the library. Enjoying time at home.
