SOLSC #19: 10 Things Today

    Today I join my fellow bloggers in
"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
   sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
1.  I carried my i-pad around school today and bored anyone who would watch with a vimeo posted to Facebook by daughter-in-law's sister of a spring break trip to DC.
The background music is something I've heard, but can't name.  Seeing
my son performing with his wife, sister-in-law, and mother-in-law
made me happy all day!
2.  I learned at lunch that the song is "Happy" by Pharrell.
When my kids grew up and left home, I lost my
connection to pop culture.  
3.  I discovered after school that the vimeo Amy created
was inspired by Pharrell's music video.
4.  I climbed upstairs tonight chanting, "I think I can, I think I can,"  as I recall my public commitment to write in the p.m. so I can post in the a.m.
5.  I  graded one set of papers, posted grades, and needed to grade another set.
6.  I took a break to peruse and comment on a few slices. I discovered a connection
to Firecracker Moment's post, "you can...if you think you can."
I believe our trains are chugging away on the same track.
7.  I remembered the slice I planned to do tonight, but decide
to save it for another day when I'll have more crafting time.
8.  I stumbled onto Cathy's post with the music video of Farrell's song.
(I'm partial to the one son and family made!)
9.  I finished grading another set of papers and posted those grades.
10.  I write this post in the p.m., so that I'm ready to post in the a.m.


  1. I like how "I think I can, I think I can," turned into ""you can...if you think you can." Admirable that you write in the evening, so you are ready in the morning. I tend to be a last minute writer.

  2. I think I can led to - and I did! I have tried to write the night before too but that doesn't always work does it? The teacher next to me plays "Happy" all the time. Embarrassed to say, I don't know the song!

  3. I love that "Happy song" - it's become our Friday song!

  4. I think I need to check the "Happy" song!

  5. I've been singing the Happy song every time I accomplish another task. I have one more day in a school for this year. I'll be singing the song all the way home tomorrow.

  6. I love that song, Ramona, and love your post today, just a great list of good day parts! Thanks & have another tomorrow!
