Project Life Tuesday (March 7th – March 13th)

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.

Monday March 7th

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!

Wednesday March 9th

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!

Thursday March 10th

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!

Friday March 11th

Yay! The beautiful Shona came down from Scotland to visit for a few days. On Friday we caught up over cheese and wine and went to see ‘Legally Blonde’ the musical….
Saturday March 12th

…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.

    For us ignorant Yanks…what is a poppet? :)I need your "be calm and drink tea" sign. I tend to be jumpy and drink coffee.

    I like the idea of Muddy Waters cocktail. Brilliant I say!
