A Better Day

Well, I feel much better today!

My house cleaners came today, so my house feels so clean and smells so good! Just getting the house cleaned will take so much stress off me for the Labor Day cookout. That means that all I'll have to do is a little bit of tidying up Monday morning. One of my best friends is also coming to visit this weekend, but now the guest bedroom and bath is ready for her too.

I'm kind of excited about Labor Day coming because that means fall clothes are just around the corner! Don't get me wrong-I have thoroughly enjoyed my Bonannos and madras shorts this summer, but I love fall clothes. Plaid skirts, sweaters, turtlenecks, jeans and boots, the list goes on and on. Plus, I found some great fall and winter bargains last spring and they have been hanging in my closet all summer waiting to be worn for the first time. One item in particular that I am dying to wear is a short, wool blazer with toggle clasps. It is adorable and I got it for $20 on a clearance rack. Now that's a bargain!

I had planned on telling you all about the cutest store and restaurant that I visit in Nashville quite often. I was also going to post a picture of the note cards that I bought the last time I was there, but I left my camera in my office at school. So that will have to wait until tomorrow....

Thank you for the welcome to the world of blogging! It just looked like too much fun to miss! As a FORMER full-time educator,I remember quite well, those days that were downers, due to something that may have happened at school. I actually left the profession for about 10 years because those days were outnumbering the good ones. I returned to teaching, because I really loved it! With a little bit of space and a different school situation, it was better. Whenever one deals with the public, times can be trying. I just kept telling myself, that I was doing this to share my love of art with the children, just like my teachers shared their love with me! Then it becomes a Win/Win situation! I hope that, yours will become a win/win as well!

Yes, I can relate to "rough" days - glad today was a little redeeming! Hang in there!
