Street Sign

Last weekend, I went to the OKC fairgrounds where they were having the library book sale. Great fun. I got 11 books, including fairly new hardcover bestsellers for $10. As i was leaving I saw this sign. Don't know if it's named after Ree or not, but I'd like to think so as she's the bomb!

Another Teacher Story

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I am stressed this semester. The classes I have are really challenging. The sun hasn't been out much, and blah, blah, blah.
Anyway, today I was working with my third graders and one of them said, "How much more time until lunch?" I said, "I think you can tell time by now, you tell me." She said, "I know, but it's hard and takes effort." I said, "Welcome to the rest of your life."

Teacher Story

I had my Kindergarten group in with me today, and one of them pointed up to a sign hanging from the ceiling and said "What's that?" I said, "It's a sign, it says Happy Valentine's Day." Another kid says "And the baby shoots the arrow." ha!

Yummy Dip

Hubby found this dip recipe that we took to a Superbowl Party:

Buffalo Chicken Dip
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. blue cheese dressing (or Ranch)
1/2 c. Frank's RedHot sauce
1/2 c. crumbled blue cheese (or mozzarella)
2 cans (12.5 oz. each) Swanson Chicken Breast

1. Stir the cream cheese in a 9-in deep dish pie plate until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients.
2. Bake in preheated 350 degree over for 20 minutes. Stir and serve with veggies or crackers.

My Crazy Son

My son is in art again this semester, and the assignment was something to do with Target. I thought this was pretty clever! Freehand.
He ordered a new pair of shoes from the local skate shop a couple of weeks ago. It took forever for them to come in, but we finally got them yesterday. The first thing A did when he got in the car was to open the box and smell them. He's weird like that.

So, I get home today from an all-day conference, and this kid is standing in my driveway. SIGH!! He's all excited and I know he is about to sell me something. It's one of those "I'm trying to earn points to do yada yada. If you buy a magazine, I get points." So, I figured the best way to get him to leave me alone to eat what turned out to be bad Chinese food was to buy one. I picked one and he was filling out the form and I was filling out my check until he said "That'll be $75." Are you freaking kidding me? For a magazine subscription?? Sorry, kid!

New Project

Well, we're on our third weather day off from school, with a fourth tomorrow. I started this new Mariner's Compass quilt today. The colors in the photo aren't true. The points that look yellow are actually light green.
I like it so far!
I'm actually going to a conference tomorrow, so I won't be off again. They'll tack these days on to the end of the school year and we'll be going into June! :( Hopefully the temperature will be nice and toasty tomorrow to melt this ice!
