Celebrate Good Times, Come On! - 12/21
Each Saturday Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events from our week. Looking for small celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with us.
This week I am celebrating the start of my Christmas break. I absolutely love teaching, but I love my breaks! A time to relax, restore, and rejuvenate.
I celebrate taking a break from my responsibilities at school so that I can enjoy time with my family, especially my children. They are the age where they usually just want food and money, but I am ready to spend some quality time with them. My son asked me the other day if we could make Christmas sugar cookies...his favorite! I said absolutely, thrilled that he still wanted to do this with me.
I celebrate taking a break from setting the alarm so that I can stay up late reading, sleep in because I "just had to finish that book" and wearing my pajamas for as long as I want. I have many books to read and will certainly find some to read on the Winter Pop-up Library.
Check it out - free ebooks from December 21 - January 5!
I hope each of you have a great break and find many reasons to celebrate!
Now, I am off to continue shopping!

I love having a break, too, for many of the same reasons. I will be enjoying quality time with my family and reading. What are you reading?ReplyDelete
It's great to be able to take a break and get refreshed for the next semester. Thanks for the link to the library, That's cool!ReplyDelete
I love the idea of having the chance to "just finish the book" and then sleeping in the next morning. I hope to do some of that as well. I am off to watch a movie online now that my visitors succumbed to the force of jet-lag (and are sleeping now). Happy relaxing!ReplyDelete
I feel exactly as you do, Leigh Anne - so glad that our break is finally here! Enjoy the holidays!ReplyDelete
Breaks are essential for staying healthy (physically, emotionally, mentally.) Enjoy the time with your family!ReplyDelete
As I read this at almost noon, still in my jammies, I can totally relate to your reasons to celebrate vacations. I hope you have a great one!ReplyDelete
I'm with you on the PJ's and time to read!ReplyDelete
