What I'm Loving Wednesday

Woo hoo! It's Wednesday! Boo! It's raining!!!

Actually, I don't really mind the rain, it means I don't have to go out and water my garden today! The downside is that I will not be dragging the girls to the farmer's market in the rain, and, man, I'm going to be missing my fresh local produce till I can get there on Saturday!

To sooth my poor, sad, soul, I am linking up to the What I'm Loving Wednesday Linky, hosted by Covered in Glitter and Glue (I love the colors of her blog, by the way...totally matches my classroom...but that's not one of my items for What I'm Loving..or maybe it's just a bonus item, LOL!).

So, anyway...What I'm loving today...

1. I do not have a photo for this one, but I'm loving it anyway...NO GRAD SCHOOL WORK UNTIL SEPTEMBER!!! Woot! Okay, so I was done on Friday, but I'm still basking in the glow of no homework...this will be my longest stretch of time "off" since before I started back!

2. Instagram! I've been using it for a while, but I've just recently started using it as a teacher! I am loving it! Seeing what everyone else is up to, connecting with other educators...awesome! I'm still getting going, but feel free to check out what I've got going--my user name is becca372.

3.My desk is almost clean!!! And I've figured out how to use it from both the front and the back, for connecting to my projector...(if you look closely at the above photo, my desk (not clean in the photo) is in the bottom left picture). It's in a line of cupboards forming a "wall" of sorts, which divides my carpet area from the view of my neighbor's students walking through (if you look at the bottom right corner, you can see the doorway...that goes from my room to hers...her kids have to walk through my room to get to theirs...or to the hall). Anyway...last year, my desk was facing the wall, and I hated it. This year, I turned it 90 degrees.Here, you can see it, blocked in the front by my big book box and drawers...the keyboard and mouse are on top of the big book box. I love that I can now use my desk and computer from either side, and I can run the projector without being "away" from my students. I don't know if it's all going to stay this way, but my desk sure is!!!!

Whew...enough rambling? Anyway, those are a few things I love. I started this post at ten a.m....and now it's after midnight here...can I still call it "What I'm Loving Wednesday"???'s still Wednesday somewhere, right? 

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Lucky you, already in your room! Good luck getting it set up! Hope it stops raining!

    1. Believe me, I know how lucky I am! This time last year, I was getting back in my room, and then we had a hailstorm which destroyed our roof...I wasn't able to get into my classroom until the day before Open House! Kindergarten didn't even do Open House with the rest of the district, because our rooms weren't anywhere even close to ready! It was a, even with my kids leaving a huge mess, I know I am ahead of the game compared to last year!!! Thanks for stopping by!!


  2. Your blog is so cute! Love the colors.

    It has been raining here in Wisconsin for three days and has hardly gotten into the 70's. It feels like fall... :( The up side is that it's good for my garden!

    1. Thanks! It's been really cool here in Michigan, too...hard to believe just a couple weeks ago we were roasting in 90 something heat and crazy humidity. Like you said, though, good for the garden! I figure the heat will come back in time for school to usually does!
