Happy July 4th!
(on the July 5th)
Today we are celebrating one of those wonderful days that really calls for gratitude: Government Holidays.
The Mister is home and we have a tradition on days like today. We have a breakfast feast.
As soon as I finish typing this post we will dine on biscuits, eggs, and fruit (fresh pineapple, cherries, and watermelon).
After breakfast we plan to go on a hike to the river.
We've already had a great weekend which involved a little bit of work, and a little bit of fun. Which is always the best way to have a weekend.
The Girl and I watched a Hannah Montana Marathon while we slipped 500 sheets of paper curriculum into protective sleeves.
We aren't finished yet. We still have one and a half units left to "protect" but I ran out of sheet protectors.
Then we moved to the filing system. This is is new for me this year. (Actually I've switched
entire curriculum this year) I have always filed their finished work, but never by the week. So we dutifully got an entire school-year filing system readied.
Then we went and had pedicures.
I also started another afghan while we watched movies each night.
I'm gonna keep this one.
This weekend couldn't have been better.
But it was.
After getting my toenails painted I quickly ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things for our cook-out....I decided to take one look in the ice cream isle, although I knew my Creamsicle search was in vain at this store.
Imagine my surprise when I saw a big yellow sticker that said "NEW ITEM! Dean's Orange Cream Bars":
And in my excitement I went all loco en la cabeza and bought ice cream sandwiches too.
It is a holiday you know.
For the record, these orange cream bars are better than the ones I was looking for, because they are orange sherbet not orange popsicle...Mmmmm......
I think it may have to be added to the breakfast feast menu.
