Can you believe we still have spots of snow on the ground? Those of you in the midwest or the north may be thinking, "Yeah, so what?" Here in the south, it's very unusual for snow to stay around for more than a day and we've had quite a bit on the ground for a week. Highly unusual. This is what my front yard looked like yesterday:
Today it's back to work for me. Is it bad of me to hope for snow tonight since I have bus duty tomorrow morning? Give me an inch, and I'll definitely take a mile!

Last weekend I was sitting in the living room and heard this big "THUD". When I went to investigate, I saw that a pigeon had flown into the window. Really weird how you can see the outline of the bird. You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it, then look just under the tennis ball for the outline.
I went to the mall in the "big city" on Saturday because FES needed to get some clothes, and he wanted to go to stores that aren't in our little mall. So, I dropped him off, then went across the street to Bed Bath, and Beyond, then AC Moore, and then The School Box. I completely forgot The School Box was over in that area! And, it just so happened that I needed stickers! YAY! I got the neatest thing in AC Moore:
They are little discs that have adhesive on them. You wet them, then put them on the back of a decorative plate so you can hang them up. My sister (you know, the one who gives me "stuff"!) had given me these bowls a long, long time ago, and I couldn't figure out how to show them off:
So, I got the disc thingies; now all I have to figure out is where to put them in my kitchen. I also thought to get one of these, too:
Since we haven't had school in what seems like forever, and I go to my mountain school today, I had to find something to play with my students. My other school has all of the storage space, so that's where I keep my materials. I found this adorable game:
It seems "babyish", but, believe it or not, even my 4th & 5th graders will enjoy playing it! Heck, YS even said he wanted to play it to try it out! Of course, once he lost, he thought it was lame. He probably would've thought it was fun if he had won!
My mantra for today: I will have a good day. Even with this incredibly yucky cough.
