Hello, New Year!
Like so many of us, I've resolved to make improvements in the way I do certain things. One area that I want to improve on is how I blog, and one way that I plan on making that improvement is to participate regularly in link-ups. Link-ups are such a great way to develop and nurture online friendships and collaborations, and they also provide a way to stick to a regular blogging schedule.
It's kind of hard to choose between all of the wonderful link-ups out there! I did come up with a list for myself, based on my personal interests:
The 1st of the month:
CURRENTLY by Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade
The 1st Friday of the month:
Five for Friday by Doodle Bugs Teaching
The 3rd of the month:
PICK 3 PINTEREST PARTY by PAWSitively Teaching, Just Reed, and Inspired Owl's Corner
The 2nd Thursday of the month:
THEMATIC THURSDAY by Carla at Comprehension Connection
The 15th of the month:
SHARING SUNSHINE by Hello Sunshine Teachers
I might change this list as the year goes on, and if I do, I will update this post.
Here I go, starting with my first linkup of the year!
(Today is also the first Five for Friday of the year, and I hope to post that later tonight.)
I'm often not able to watch programs at their scheduled times, so thank goodness for TiVo! I absolutely love Hallmark movies, and it is such a treat to get to binge watch them on weekends and breaks!
I love the way that 2016 has started. We have a family wedding to attend tonight, today is the second day of a 2016STEM collaboration I've been participating in with my friends at STEM Activities for Kids, I've got all sorts of projects planned for my classroom and store, we've got lots of fun activities going on with our family and friends... This is a busy time of year, but so much fun!
There's something inherently comforting about ORGANIZING. It's a terrific way to feel "in control" of even the most out-of-control projects and intentions. Family photos, the linen closet, my Narnia cupboards at school, exercise regimens, meal plans... Once I get it on a To Do List, I just feel like it's all going to turn out OK!
Oh dear. Peppermint Fudge has been a very NON macro staple of my eating these days. I haven't had any yet today, but that's only because we ate the last of it last night. Now if I can only convince myself not to whip up another batch...!
As soon as I publish this post and comment on a few friends' posts, I need to hop in the shower to go get my hair done for tonight! I'm still in my fuzzy pink robe and sock monkey slippers!
My word these days has been COZY. (Hence the fuzzy pink robe and sock monkey slippers!)
Happy New Year to you all!
