Sunday Weekly Wrap Up and Shadow Shot Sunday

Yesterday we had rain and dark clouds.

Today was a beautiful day - sunny and warm with a bit of a breeze. Yet I was inside, for a few hours buried in a book. It kept me awake til 2:30 last night and then I had to finish it this afternoon. "The Year of Fog" by Michelle Richmond -it was gripping and very readable. I would recommend it.

Shadow Shot Sunday:

I wasn't able to get great shadows outside yesterday but I did manage a few inside shots of plants:

Today with the bright sun I got a few shadows - my favourite on our porch with the cat in the background.

The 100 day challenge has begun and altho it got off to a bumpy start, I am trying to concentrate on healthy habits and creativity.

I finished my June calendar this week for "The Kathryn Wheel's" challenge and altho it isn't quite what I wanted, I have been keeping up!

I found an interesting download at "A Holy Experience" - A Hundred Day calendar. It has a place for three things you accomplished each day. I love the idea of keeping record for those 100 days but with just a few items to check off.

Did I :

exercise/ eat healthy/create/read/declutter?

These will be what I try to focus on each week.

ATCsI continue to work on ATCs. They are quick and fun, and pose at times, a bit of challenge.

These were for a PAT - where each person in the swap Picks a Theme (try to guess the different themes!)

A Sharpie flower:

Children's Book Characters:

And of course my favourite - zentangles:

Tomorrow starts the colour challenge at Twinkle, Twinkle and I am looking forward to that.

I am so looking forward to the end of school as well! lol This week all the Grade 3s in Ontario will have done or will be doing the Gr. 3 and 6 EQAO Assessment. My class will be writing it Tues - Thurs. for several hours a day. What a bloody waste of money! I can still remember the little girl who looked up at me a few years ago and said, "But you're a teacher - you're supposed to help me!" For the reading section (there are 2 other sections - math and writing!) we can offer no help at all. And I have several students who are not reading at grade level. We will get through it though as we always do.

Have a wonderful week, full of creativity and laughter - we all need both!
