1. Swim in the springs. Swimming in a spring is different than swimming in any other body of water. It just feels more magical.
2. Float down the Ichetucknee River in an inner-tube with friends
3. Have a successful garden harvest
4. Make salsa with all ingredients from our garden
5. Have a backyard BBQ
6. Take a walk on the beach at night. We live less than an hour from the Atlantic and the Gulf and we probably haven’t had a night-time beach walk in two years.
7. Go to a concert of a band we actually enjoy…
8. Bake homemade blueberry cobbler
9. See a summer blockbuster (we’ve already seen Iron Man 3!)
10. Take walks. Take pictures. Smell the jasmine. Enjoy our time together.
I finally tried a gradient nail! For some reason they always intimidated me, but they were actually super easy! For these nails I used a pastel blue, purple and pink polish along with a cosmetic sponge to create a soft subtle gradient. Ray says they remind him of cotton candy!
I know it might sound ridiculous, but the fact that tonight will be the final episode of The Office is seriously making my heart ache. I started watching sometime in 2007, which I believe was during the second season and I was instantly hooked. Remember when Jim and Pam were falling in love? And when Michael got Ryan an ipod for Christmas? Phyllis and Bob’s Wedding? The dundie awards? And remember when we found out Angela and Dwight were together!? Ah, memories. I’ve actually been kind of anti-The Office for the past 2 seasons. I just felt like maybe they were losing their touch. The Jim and Pam fighting episodes were almost too much for me to deal with. HOWEVER, the last 3 or 4 episode have been incredible and I think the writers have done and awesome job of tying up lose ends.
I think tonight is going to be bittersweet. What are some of your favorite Office moments? Let’s reminisce.
Some of you may already know this, but I work in a public library. Half of my time is spent checking books in and out, helping patrons on the public computers, answering some reference questions, helping patrons locate books and movies, etc. The rest of my time is spent in the adult literacy department.
We focus primarily on teaching basic literacy skills (reading and writing) and English as a second language. In the last year or so I have been teaching a basic computer class. Whew. Guys, it’s wonderful and crazy all at the same time. Most of my students are older people who have NEVER EVEN TOUCHED A COMPUTER. Crazy, huh? It can get super frustrating, like when homegirl continuously right clicks even when you’ve told her 14 times to left click, but it’s also really rewarding seeing my students learn and grow.
I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the websites I’ve used either for class and reference.
1. Mousing Around Mousercise – Everyone’s fave! You even get a diploma at the end.
2. Microsoft Digial Literacy – Snore-fest
3. Digital Literacy Assesment – This one is awesome because I am able to see my student’s level of understanding. Take an assesment and see how you do!
