The Slice of Life March Challenge is hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
As I sit here waiting for the sun to mark a period on my first weekend of spring break, I am taking advantage of the warm temperatures and spending a few minutes outside on my back porch. I have spent most of the weekend inside a gym watching a basketball tournament. As much as I love watching my niece and students play and my daughter and sister coach, I have missed out on a beautiful afternoon.
I am contemplating my to-do list for my week, identifying which items belong in the must-do, want-to-do, and should-do list. There are plenty for each one, and I know my week will run out long before my list.
Tonight, I add this to my want-to-do list. I have two boxes of books I want to read before I hand them over to my students. This is just a short stack that I pulled out for this slice.
My slice is written, and now I have time to finish watching this beautiful sunset.
