Once again I am linking up with Jessica‘s Project Life Tuesdays – I love seeing what people have come up with! Here’s my past week in pictures.
Another busy Monday at work. I am in the process of (slowly but surely!) overhauling my classroom, trying to make it a place we feel is a great environment, ripe for learning, exploration and play. To quote Charlotte Mason, “Education is an atmosphere.” Here are some recent additions.
Tuesday March 8th
(a.k.a. Shrove Tuesday; a.k.a. Pancake Day; a.k.a. Mardi Gras)
Eileen came over and we marked the festival with pancakes and ‘Muddy Waters’ cocktails (bourbon, apricot brandy, lemonade, ginger & honey). Great fun before the rigours of Lent kicked in!
Time to make some Claire soup – in the pot are carrots, potatoes, squash and carrots with stock and herbs and spices. Boil it up, blend it down, and enjoy. I also baked some homemade bread to go with this….cue a very happy Matthew!
I finally got round to having my hair cut! It is so much shorter at the back, but still frames my face. I really like it, and my hairstylist Aaron was a total poppet!
…and on Saturday we continued the fun by going to see ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ – a new and fabulous musical. Shona and I met through musical theatre, so we love to catch a show or two together! We then went to the Ritz for afternoon tea – absolutely divine (and a lovely present from Matthew). Such, such fun.
Sunday March 13th – no photo! Shona, Matthew and I went to Belgo and I got food poisoning (only mild, thank heavens) from the mussels. I did *not* feel good!
I’m loving getting back into Project Life – it will be nice to have a record of the year to look back on, I think.
