I am thinking ... scaffolding, personhood, paideia, Irish civilization, the Ideal Type. Something's bound to bump into something else up there.
I am thankful ... for a wonderful vacation with my wonderful inlaws.
One of my favorite things ... is date night with Jason when we're at the Outer Banks:
I am wearing ... shorts and the top in my profile picture here on the blog ... and a grey hoodie. It cooled off.
I am creating ... blog posts that may never be written and a talk that has to be done soon!
I am listening to ... Flourish a new podcast from Ambleside Schools International and enjoying it very much.
I love this phrase, "It's good to be me here with you." For moms and children. ❤️ https://t.co/ZON7GvspUm— dawn (@a_ladydusk) June 4, 2018
I am learning ... to control my temper and to stop the negative interaction sooner.
In my kitchen ... BLTs at R-girl's softball game tonight. They tied, but the BLTs were yummy.
In the school room ... back to it tomorrow. Gotta print the week's assignment sheets ...
In my garden ... I have plants from my brother to plant. And maybe R-girl's garden tomorrow. And maybe get N-boy to mow.
Post Script ... big doings over at Pam's place. A planning new course that we're super excited about. (Nota bene - I'm not an affiliate, but I am paid for work I do for Pam as her Community Manager. I wouldn't work for her or share her stuff if I didn't think it valuable. Carry on. Check it out!)
Shared Quote ... Last week's Wednesdays with Words post on Instagram:
A moment from my day ... writing at the orthodontist:
Closing Notes: So, our date night was at The Paper Canoe. We've gone every year since it was opened and we love it. The food is delicious and the views are spectacular. This year, while we waited for our table, we read some of the book from which it gets it's name: a travel journal from the 1870s of a man who canoed from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and then from Pittsburgh to the same point. His trip took him down the Currituck Sound, which is the view of the restaurant. The parts of the book we read were so well written, I ordered a reprint from Amazon. He is traveling in the South during reconstruction and the interactions with people are so interesting. I can't wait to read more.
Linking up with The Simple Woman.
