Day 58, Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I haven't been feeling well the past few days.  I went to the Family Quick Care office this afternoon and I have an ear infection and sinus infection.  I am ready for winter to be over.  This is the 3rd time I have had an ear infection since November!

Day 57, Tuesday, February 26, 2013

It snowed most of the day today.

Day 56, Monday, February 25, 2013

Even though there is snow on the ground, I got to walk Coco, tonight. He loves to walk around the block with me.  He knew we were going for a walk when I put his little coat on!

Day 55, Sunday, February 24, 2013

I found this Zentangle on Pinterest (only with a whole bunch of others!) and copied it, sort of.  Well, it didn't come out exactly like the one I saw, but it is close.

Day 54, Saturday, February 23, 2013

We got a gift certificate to a new place to eat for Christmas.  We had a gourmet burger.  We will be going back here soon!

Day 53, Friday, February 22, 2013

We went to see the play Jersey Boys tonight at 8 p.m.  It was a great play and we really enjoyed listening to all of the music!

Day 52, Thursday, February 21, 2013

Today was Spring Picture Day at school.  I hope the parents like the pose!

Day 51, February 20, 2013

Here's Coco!

Day 50, February 19, 2013

I worked on this Zentangle at lunch today at Subway.  I can't wait for dinner tonight...Johnny's Steak House with John and Stacie for her 33rd birthday!

Day 49, Monday, February 18, 2013

The arm bands came today that I ordered to support John in his fight against Lymphoma.  We love you Johnny Mac!

Day 48, Sunday, February 17, 2013

We went to see the movie Identity Thief at 11:10 today.  We laughed!

Day 47, Saturday, February 16, 2013

We ate dinner at McAllister's Deli.  I love their Torilla soup and Jim always get the New Yorker.  I thought I was getting a side salad, but this huge one was what they brought me.  We finished using the gift card that we got for Christmas from my parents.

Day 46, Friday, February 15, 2013

We met Rob, Cyndi and Peyton at Kouri's tonight for dinner.  As we were waiting for our food, Peyton and I worked on a Zentangle.  He did a really good job.  After dinner, we all went back to our house and Jim helped Cyndi do their income tax return.

Day 45, Thursday, February 14, 2013

Happy Valentine's Day!  Jim sent me roses.  I inserted our cards to each other and the heart Zentangle that I did for him, in the lower right corner.

Day 44, Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Jim has been dizzy the past two evenings when he got home from work.  Tonight, I told him he had to go to the ER to get checked out.  Here he was getting an EKG and IV fluids.  Thank goodness, he was just dehydrated.  Two bags of fluids later, we went home.

Day 43, Tuesday, February 12, 2013

When we got to school this morning, this was on our door.  The Voyages students left "Random Acts of Kindness" on our doors!

Day 42, Monday, February 11, 2013

This is a reminder about how ONLY one pound looks!

Day 41, Sunday, February 10, 2013

This is my first original Zentangle!  I have been practicing in my sketchbook and following the lessons and today I did one on my own!

Day 40, Saturday, February 9, 2013

I'm just wondering if this is the same squirrel who stole candy from a plastic Easter egg last spring.  He was sure very "interested" in Coco and me!

Day 369, Friday, February 8, 2013

This is a note our principal got from a "very sorry" student.

Day 38, Wednesday, February 6, 2013

I added the four cubes at the top of my desk just recently.  I have been gathering little containers to put in the 9 squares of each cube.  I love having all of my supplies where I can see them and get to them quickly.

Day 37, Wednesday, February 6, 2013

This is the list of classes from  Cindy and I have been taking these classes on line for a while now.  There are so many great techniques and ideas!  We can't wait until the next day for the new card video!

Day 36, Tuesday, February 5, 2013

These flowers are from the 1/2 price bin at Krogers.  I love getting a bargain on flowers and enjoying them for the week!

Day 35, Monday, February 4, 2013

This is my first lesson in the 6 week Zentangle course.  I started it yesterday, but didn't get it finished until tonight.  I bought a sketch book to practice.  I am drawing the "tangle" in the traditional 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" size.  I copied this tangle from the book.  I hope to create my own tangles, soon!

Day 34, Sunday, February 3, 2013

Logan's for lunch!  We still have Logan's Bucks and gift cards to spend.  We will be eating here a couple more times before the bucks expire on the 10th!

Day 33, Saturday, February 2, 2013

I have started Zentangle!  I took a class today at Scrapadoodle.  I bought a book that my friend Pam had started with my gift card from Jim for Christmas.  I really like drawing the tangles!

Day 32, Friday, February 1, 2013

Girl Scout Cookies are here!  Michelle brought Hanna's cookies to school today.  They are $4.00 a box.  I remember selling them for 50 cents a box when I was in girl scouts.  I sold 100 boxes for my badge.

Day 31, Thursday, January 31, 2013

I added another row of cubes in my stacks.  The three drawer cubes will house my punches...with some room to grow!

Day 30, Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Coco went to the puppy spa today.  Isn't he handsome?

Day 29, Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Meet Ellie!  She is a new puppy that my friend Pam and her family have adopted.  She is so cute and I am sure their family will have lots of love to give her!

Day 28, Monday, January 28, 2013

I made this vase for Valentine's Day.  I saw it on Pinterest.  There is a smaller vase inside the larger vase.  I filled the big vase with conversation hearts.  I used one bag and a few from another.  Jim is ready to eat these hearts!

Day 27, Sunday, January 27, 2013

I have been playing Words with Friends with Jill and John for over a year.  I think I have only won about 4 games, total.  In this screen shot, I beat John twice!  Made me happy!

Day 26, Saturday, January 26, 2013

I made these cards at Scrapadoodle during the class this morning.  They were "heart" cards, but not necessarily for Valentine's Day.  I made all but one for Valentine's Day.

Day 25, Friday, January 25, 2013

The Peoria Zoo brought the Zoomobile to school today.  It was the celebration of good behavior, PBIS assembly.  This is a chinchilla who was very interested in the children.  Her little ears were moving all around checking out the kids!  They also brought a snake (yucky), bird and an alligator.  The kids got to touch the alligator if they wanted too.

Day 24, Thursday, January 24, 2013

The American Red Cross representative was at school today for an assembly.  We are having a blood drive on February 6, in our district.  

Day 23, Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Here is Bella!  She is a new puppy that a friend of mine at work is babysitting until her mom comes home from Florida.  She is about 8 weeks old and is really cute.  I think she might have long least on her ears!

Day 22, Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I have been working hard to reach my Fitbit goal everyday.  I have made it many times to 10,000 steps, but fall short of my calories burned goal.  Today I made both!

Day 21, Monday, January 21, 2013

Today was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so I didn't have to go to work.  Jim took today off, too.  I went to Body Pump class at 6:30 p.m.  Saturday was the release of Body Pump 84, a new routine to work my muscles in a different way!
