It's also Spring Break for my daughter, the first grade teacher, who is spending it in Florida. Lucky thing. Gonna miss her at the table.
While in the paint department of Home Depot today, a young mom stopped me and said, "Excuse me, ma'am. Do you have an eye for color?" I told her I thought so; I'm an art teacher. She exclaimed, "An art teacher? Score!" Made me laugh and made my day. She needed help deciding between two colors to go with her tile. That was fun.
I, in turn, held up three paint cards with a total of 9 colors for my new guest/craft room. I asked her which of the top 6 she found both restful and inspiring. I was hoping she'd choose my choice, Wickerware (by Behr). She did. Score!
One of my dear young friends won Teacher of the Year for our county. I am so excited for her. And what's even better? She co-teaches with my nephew in the same fifth grade classroom. He's a special educator and they're quite a team. Two of the most hilarious people I've ever met, with hearts of gold.
I plunged into the A to Z Blog Challenge which starts April 1.
My sister's baby "cooperated" at the sonogram today. They're having a Gender Reveal party Saturday, so you know I'll be back here with great news! And I won't even wait for B is for Boy or G is for Girl. No, way. I am not that patient! This is pretty exciting stuff!
If you want to read a sweet love story, in his own words, my engaged son Steve has posted here, "True Love Began with a Bag of Doritos." I was moved to tears. He's such a tender, funny, precious guy who's got a way with words. Love him to bits 'n pieces. She does, too. Good thing, because they're gettin' hitched in three months!
Have a blessed Easter weekend, everyone.
