SOLSC #29: Bookending my Week with Blue Skies!

I "serve up a slice" at Two Writing Teachers
and celebrate with Ruth Ayres at
Celebrate this week!
Discover. Play. Build.

Moments of celebration this past week:

Cherry blossoms on a Sunday afternoon walk 
Student donates new stapler to our classroom
Staggered bloomings - the "ugly" tree has buds
Sharing slices for Kate's 50th birthday
District announces retirement party - I'm listed
Student's humorous slice about his "perfect" dog
Blissful moments when everyone is writing 
Afternoon sunshine at Slater Park


  1. Doesn't take much to get a celebration happening, just a stapler will do. Beautiful picture, you get the best sunsets.

  2. Love the pic, like always, Ramona. But what do you mean about the retirement party & you're listed? Are you retiring this year? I didn't know. Glad you had a nice week.

    1. Yes, I've kept it under my hat because I didn't want to spend my last year looking ahead to retirement. So quite a few folks were surprised to see my name on the list. Looking forward to more flexibility in my life so I can travel to see my kids more (both are still on the east coast). I'll sub some, and I have a few other ideas I'm hoping to pursue. It was harder to turn in my intent than I had anticipated.

  3. Beautiful rainy picture! Retirement? Congratulations on a decision that I am sure was not easy to make.

  4. Wow, Ramona - this is big news. You kept the secret well!

  5. Beautiful pictures to go with your celebrations! It is the little things that make such a difference.

  6. Congrats on your retirement. I am sure your days will be filled with many new adventures! It is so nice to buds on the tree in your "spot." Can't wait to see it all green!

  7. Beautiful photos and a beautiful slice. Congratulations!

  8. Congratulations on your retirement, Ramona! I'm excited for you to have time to see family...have time to relax...have time to spare. :) Loved that you included pictures tonight. I looooooove Seattle. Such a beautiful place to live! Lucky you! b

  9. Beautiful pictures! Wow got to get to Seattle. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Oooooh, the cherry blossoms! So beautiful! I'll just have to come look at this page for some spring.... Have a great week!
