When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
I'm thrilled to be here with my friends for this centennial celebration - 100 times we've gathered to Celebrate This Week together. Thanks, Ruth, for your gentle ways which remind us to celebrate: to look for hope, to make connections, and to seek the light. Every.Single.Week.
1. Writer's Notebooks!
I bumped into this guy at the public library after the first day of school.
I've known him for a long time, but he's in fourth grade now.
He was focused on finding the perfect pics to decorate his writer's notebook.
His dad was helping him cut them out, and his mom sent me this pic last week.
I joined fellow Friends of the Library on three days this past week to volunteer for our fall book sale, the big one. Imagine my delight when I arrived on Monday,
and they assigned me to unpack children's books.
Of course, if you put me to work in children's books, chances are I'll buy a few.
For those of you who know about my decluttering efforts,
most of these books are gifts. And books aren't clutter.
3. Books, Brownies, and Beyond
Our first book club meeting for this school year was on Tuesday with twelve
students in attendance - five returning 7th graders and seven new 6th graders. We threw name tags into the hat for a drawing at the end.
Winner: first person to read Sunny Side Up!
4. Fall Color!I stepped out of the library on Wednesday to place a phone call and discovered gorgeous yellow leaves announcing fall's imminent arrival
against a magnificent blue sky.
|Wednesday, a blue and yellow day!|
