The Simple Woman's Daybook

Rhonda's Daybook
April 13, 2010

Outside my window...it is sunny and a gorgeous day. I'm loving the spring weather lately.

I am thinking....that my baby will be graduating kindergarten in a couple of months. Where does time go?

I am thankful... for the opportunity to have another long term sub position this school year. If you see the blog posts slowing down, or me not getting to visit as often...that is the reason. I am the 'music teacher' and have 168 kids to teach each week. I'm loving it!

I am wearing ....khaki capri pants, black shirt, and my new "switch" flops I made with my friend Tammy's help.

I am remembering...how tired I get at the beginning of subbing full time. It usually takes about a week for my body to get use to it. I'm in my second full week, and it is getting a little easier now.

I am creating....lots on my list, but not completing much.
The bathroom project has been put on hold till things slow down a little.

I am going....to finish one project I've started by the end of the week! I guess the first thing would be to decide what project it will be.

I am reading...The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. I'm continuing reading in the Bible in 90 Days, although that has come to completion for many. They will be starting another one July 1st. If your interesting in starting this journey for yourself go here to learn more.

I am hoping...I can get in for a cut and color soon. I always feel better when my hair looks good!

On my mind...Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay.

We practiced this song for t
he talent show, and it's one of the K graduation songs. I've even dreamed about this song! I can't seem to get it out of my head.

From the learning rooms...Caden tested this past week at school for two days. Cameron will be taking the benchmark four days, all day long this week! I am making sure he is prepared, well rested, eating well, and staying hydrated.

Pondering these words..."Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all." Psalm 34:19

From the kitchen
...Taco Ring for dinner tonight. It's an easy fix and pretty presentation.

Around the house...my sink is shiny and the bed is made. I need to de-clutter everyday so I don't get behind even more at home.

One of my favorite things...Cadbury chocolate eggs...glad they only are out once a year!

A few plans for the rest of the week....Teaching, baseball practice, Razorback baseball game, yard sales, and intentional time spent with the family.

From my picture journal...
A glimpse into our spring break fun at Terra Studios. We really enjoyed our picnic and had a great time. We were glad Grandma could join us for the picnic.

I can't tell you how many times I have sung Zip a dee doo dah to Sarah...

We are making dinner and it's not looking as good as that!! I've made the taco ring, but I never put all the stuff in the middle before! D'Oh!

Pam said...

I haven't made a taco ring in ages. Looks so yummy.

Wow, I am going to have to get the taco ring recipe from you, it looks wonderful.
How fun to be able to be a choir teacher. I think the long term subbing would be great as you get to see so many grades for a long time not just in and out.
We are also loving the weather, that is why I am so behind on blogging.
Have a fabulous day!

Hi Rhonda!!!

thanks so much for the comment on my blog. Congrats on passing the Praxis II for the second time! I definietly wasn't sure what to expect- but am glad they are over. I am also in the process of trying to find a job for next year. Congrats on getting a full time sub position!

Hi Rhonda!

I love that you are a music teacher - I love music and admire those who teach children to love it! I also love Cadbury chocolate!! We actually had a shortage of Cadbury Eggs here in Idaho around Easter, can you believe it?!

Don't work too hard and get plenty of sleep.

So glad it is sunny out. Cool that you got another sub job. Good for you. That taco ring looks delish. Will you share the recipe? I have had it before and I loved it. Your weekend plans sound awesome.

The flylady will be so proud that your sink is clean!

Trudy said...

That's a great song to have in your head (and dreams)...it's such a happy one!

I think you need to post the recipe for your taco ring...looks so yummy!

Yay for the teaching gig, how wonderful...have fun with it!
