happy friday!

I'm not sure if this week passed quickly or slowly. Maybe a bit of both -- if that makes sense? In any case, I'm glad it's the weekend! Here are some of the things that made me happy: 

+ Bussing and walking to school. I thought I was going to hate getting up early in the morning to go to school but I've ended up enjoying the short journey. I take a bus part of the way and instead of transferring to another, I just walk the rest of the way. There aren't many people around that early in the morning and I've cherished the time by myself. I'm able to listen to music, do some thinking, and enjoy the scenery.

+ Walking home after school. Instead of taking the bus, I've just been walking the whole way back. It gives me time to unwind and I count it as exercise!

+ Running outside on Monday. It was my first time running outside since the fall. The sun was shining, it was warm, and the sidewalks were (for the most part) clear of snow. Spring is coming.

+ Playing Draw Something, a fun (and addicting!) game.

+ One of my students asking if she could call me "Miss G."

+ Lisa, who I link up to every Monday, offering free shipping this week on her new pewter jewelry. I ordered this necklace, inspired by one of my favourite poems.

+ A snow day!

+ Finding out that I'm able to go to Montreal over the Easter weekend! I'll be visiting my best friend, Meredith, and seeing Ingrid Michaelson in concert!

What made you happy this week?


  1. I know this sounds silly, but I envy you your current "commute". I dream of being able to bus/walk to wherever it is I'm going for the day. :-)

  2. I don't think it sounds silly at all! Once in a while I wish I could drive, but most of the time, I'm thankful for everything I see and for the exercise.
