Ahh, beautiful Sunday!  Now that I am not working a second job, I can enjoy Sundays  a little more. 

I have been baking for the last 2 days (and enjoying it which is the most important thing) and this afternoon, while doing the 100th batch of dishes, I looked out to see the sun finally shining.  It's been a few days since we have seen the sun here in the North Pole.  It was a beautiful picture from my nice warm kitchen, and I decided to be a part of it.  I called down to the man-cave to see if he'd like to come with me.  He had to double-check he'd heard right, a walk?  Yep, a nice breath of fresh air was just what I needed and maybe a bit of real sunlight, if we hurried.  We are after all seeing the sun start to set at 3:30 right now.  I have been using a little blue light the last couple of months to see if it helps during the long Winter months.  It seems to, or at least I'm tricking myself. 

I have also been keeping myself busy, even in the evenings.  I have taken a couple crafty classes the last couple of weeks, and it's nice to at least be in the same room as like-minded people.  I used to crop every weekend when we lived in P-Town, but since moving to town, I don't have anyone that will come over regularly to scrap.  I think I should start bugging people (Hello, Ang) to do it more often.  I might even be willing to pack up sometimes to go somewhere else. 

As we head into the last week of school before the holidays, I am filled with many emotions.  One, panic- it's already December!  Where has the time gone, and have I been teaching enough?  I'm a little behind my last year's preview (that I did for myself and didn't turn into my admin), but am reminded by a wise friend at work, that this is a different year, with different kids.  Two, excitement.  2 weeks away from the classroom to regroup, plan and organize.  Also a few lazy and sleep-filled days.  Three, happiness.  Mostly because of emotion number 2, but also I will be able to get crafty and enjoy myself with no deadlines.

As I look out my big window onto the frosty world outside, I feel relaxed and looking forward to the week ahead.  I hope you have a wonderful week!
