Time for Fall Break

macro-watch-time-leaves-autumn-hd-wallpaper.jpgThis is it. The last day before break. An exciting day to be a kid, and an even more exciting day to be a teacher.

We’ve completed the first quarter of the school year. We have our routines in place. We’ve identified our areas of strength and our areas of greatest concern. We’re wrapping up parent teacher conferences today. We’ve accomplished quite a bit. Now it’s time for a break.

It’s time to step back, reconnect with family and friends, and reenergize. It’s time to reevaluate where we’re going and make adjustments as necessary. It’s time to rest. Really, really rest.

It’s time to sleep in (as if), stay up late, and read lots. It’s time to visit mom, take the dog for longer walks, and catch up on those household chores that have been put off. It’s time to get that long overdue haircut and pedi, drop off donations, and feel accomplished if the only thing that happens that day is cooking a good meal by dinnertime. It’s time. Precious, precious time.

L’shanah Tova! – Throwback Thursday (yes, again)

Today’s throwback goes back centuries. It is Rosh Hashanah, commonly called the Jewish New Year. It is a holy day, and one that calls for reflection. I’m in favor of that practice, as well as the practice of eating crisp fall apples dipped in sweet delicious honey. Enjoy one of my favorite holiday videos ever, and may you have a blessed year with your loved ones.

Vacation, Here I Come!

It’s beach life for me for the next week. Sand, surf, and seafood.

I’ll read, rest, and relax. Take a few pictures and do the touristy thing. Recharge.

Maybe you’ll hear from me. Maybe you won’t.

I hope you all have the opportunity to get away for a bit of a holiday this summer (or winter, depending on where you live).

Cheers!
