Feel Good Friday
Anyway, on to the feel goods.
I had Monday off for Columbus day and that was just dandy. We also had last Friday as a professional day, so I went 4 days with no students. Can you say relaxed?
I learned a new activity on my professional day on Friday and though I was skeptical, I tried it. OMG. There was a French fest in my room during the activity. EVERY student was speaking, because they had to, and I didn't have to say a word except top tell them when it was time to move to the next partner. Anyone walking in the door would have been so impressed. Now I have to be careful not to overuse that activity.
I went out this morning, the 14th of October, and picked green beans and broccoli! We still have this unseasonably warm weather, so the plants haven't given up yet. I have peppers that are growing. Some tomatoes in the greenhouse that are turning. And some winter squash that thinks it can be as big as the others I already picked this summer, but they aren't quite getting there. The beans just keep coming and coming and my new crop is flowering. The bees are still going crazy. It's very exciting to me!
After watching a coyote run through the yard the other morning, later than I think a coyote should dare show its face, Gwenstopher tried to spend the night outside. After much calling, shaking of the treats bag and calling some more, she finally sauntered home.
That's all I can think of this week. It's been slim pickings for feel good moment around here lately.
