A Week From Today

...will be the first day of my summer vacation! I have so many ideas for projects flying around my brain. I need to write them down and then focus on actually finishing a few things.

I definitely want to improve my sewing skills this summer. I've been working on the Death Cat project. 
You may not remember it because it has languished for quite a while, but one of these days I'll have a finished quilt to show you.

Tonight I'm working on an annual tradition:
I bake cookies for the kids I proctor final exams for.  Most of my students don't get home baking, so they are very appreciative.

And Wisconsin is finally blooming:

Does anyone know what these are? I found them on a little after-work walk and was amazed by their beauty.

  1. Hang in there .... the year is almost through. Very sweet of you to bake cookies.

    I'm pretty sure that plant is a rhododendron.

  4. YES!! I do know what your blooming beauty is! It is a Weigela! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weigela) The bees and hummingbirds love the blossoms!

    And, let the countdown to summer break begin!

  6. I thought the plant might be an azalea. We have a rhododendron that looks like an azalea. Whatever it is, it is gorgeous. What a beautiful shade.

    Those cookies look delicious - how nice of you to bake for the students...they probaby are all wishing for your as their proctor - lol.

    Your summer break is ALMOST here!! Woo-Hoo!

  7. How wonderful that you bake treats for your students. My last few years of teaching we were not allowed to bring treats due to students who had various allergies. May the final days of the school year go by quickly.

  8. Beautiful bush that made me think it is related to Azaleas. So glad you are nearly over the finish line of the school year ready to launch into a summer full of creativity, Deborah :-) xx

  9. I am guessing a rhododendron bush. I have them here but did not know they could grow in Wisconsin. So thrilled that you are on your way to Summer vacation. We are one week into it here, I work but Little B has been at camp and having loads of fun.

  12. Weigela is the plant. And the proctored kids will appreciate a little tlc during the test. I used to hand out granola bars for kids before their AP exams (not during)

  15. Woo-hoo for reaching summer break. I've said it before and I'll say it again, your students are lucky to have you. Pretty flowers but I'll leave it to someone else to identify them.

  16. I am 48, have 3 children, 2 boys age 25 and 22 and a daughter of 11. My husband left me last year after 25 years of marriage (he turned 50). It has been the most difficult year of my life, but full of lessons about myself and what life and marriage are all about. I am passionate about marriage and i didn't give up on my husband. resides in USA, I entered online in search of advice on how i can amend my marriage while i was at work. I saw so many positive reviews and nice feed back about how a Doctor called Robinson.buckler@ yahoo. com has been wonderful with his work. I gave a shot to make contact with him via his Email and he assured me that my marriage will be peaceful and i believed in his words. 16 hours after he finished work, my husband came back home pleading and now, we are living peacefully again. Get in contact with him if you need any help.
