clear eyes, full hearts....
I'm trying out some new things lately and whenever I run (barefoot.) (more about that later.) I can't help but have the Friday Night Lights theme song running through my head.
It's like the best show ever. In fact, I had to watch the whole series twice through because I finally talked Thomas into it's awesomeness... hence the second go-around. Actually I didn't talk him into it at all- he caught one episode and was hooked and man that's some great characterization and writing.... good enough that the non-football lover took the above photo on the way home from work one day.
Where was I going with this?
I don't remember, but the semester starts next week and I am really excited. I love being on campus and getting students excited about reading or showing them a couple of tricks to feeling confidence in their writing. This is my first semester teaching two classes, but they are back to back and I am confident that my children will love the extra daddy time. He is the fun one. It's nice to have a supportive partner. We make a good team.
The pool has stopped playing rap and started playing pandora- an Ingrid Michaelson station. It's a great way to lap it up.
I've been cooking a ton lately. It feels so good to be the queen of my kitchen. I've got a cool idea for another compiled recipe book, but I'm trying to tell myself to calm down. Nah, I might still harass people to do it. It's a pretty great idea. I think you'll like it.
Oh, and I'm itching to sew lately. It's been a long time since I sat down and made something. I need to finish all those Huck Finn pants and some nautical looking curtains for the boy's room. Pretty fun.
Plus, the feet/running situation feels like it's getting back in my control. It's too early to say YAHOO I'M CURED, but I'm cautiously hopeful.
I'm feeling pretty dang good. Great things ahead.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.
