It's 'News-All-Over-The-Place' Monday!

     I'm awake! I'm awake!!...No, really, I am!! :-] And considering the weekend I've had, my being awake this morning is...

      ...REALLY good news indeed! :-) Especially since, with the state of the real news being 'all-over-the-place' the last few days, I'd just as soon go back to bed!...ALL DAY!! O_O 
     The news over the weekend was full of things like little girls being kidnapped!...a whole hotel collapsing into a sinkhole, with people having to rush to get out!...and heavy rains with deadly flash floods!...*sigh*
      But on the good news front...gas prices are going down! YAY!!!...and  we're only a couple of weeks away from the time for kids here in the U.S. to go back to school!! :-) And yes, that is good tired, overworked, 'crazy-out-of-their-vacationing-summer-minds'....YEAH, RIGHT!...moms!! LOL 
      Speaking of which, here's a couple of back to school ideas...

       ...Okay!...I slipped the crochet boutonnieres in there. ^_^ But hey!...boutonnieres can be good back-to-school gifts! You can add them to a backpack strap, headband, shoe, etc...I can even put a brooch pin or button on the back of them if you prefer! :-) I'm flexible like that!! LOL
       In other news...for about these ideas...

       You can use these for backyard mommy-get-togethers, now that the kids will be back in school! :-) ... or as side-kick-carry-with-yous when you're going door-to-door talking to people about 'Good News'! :-) ...Uhhhh...not everybody will use the tote like that, but some will! ^_^ YOU know who you are!! *wink! wink!*

      Okay, my news...and my up!...

      Gotta go get me something to eat and get my Monday on schedule!...Have a good week everybody! :-)

About My Teachers

Let me tell you about my teachers!
Those who let my spirit fly.
Those who taught me self-control.
Those who always made me try.

My music teacher, small in size,
whose unsung words would sometimes sting;
He taught humility and patience,
while also teaching me to sing.

My English teacher, gregarious,
whose toothy smile was just as loud;
She taught me confidence and joy,
and to be fearless in a crowd.

My drama teacher, A or E,
from her I earned my hardest grade.
It was for letting out a scream.
From which I learned: 'Be Not Afraid'.

For basketball, and also Gym,
My coach would train us like a nut!
And though we lost, most every time,
I learned to try, no matter what.

I learned to cater, and to waitress,
from a crew who taught me well.
In fact, so many new experiences
that I now can hardly tell.

My Bible teacher too,
taught me how 'I must forgive';
And by teaching me God's laws,
also taught me how to live.

To my teachers, one and all,
bold, soft-spoken, shy or tough,
Thanks for teaching me the knowledge
that being 'me' is good enough!


  1. Yes, it was a crazy weekend...I'm so sorry for the loss of your good friend. I hope your week goes great and pancakes are back on the menu soon! Oh, I might be weird, but I loved when the kids were home during the summer months!

    1. Crazy is right, Yaya!!...the weather...the news...and other stuff too! But so far my new week is off to a good start. At least the weather is beautiful! :-) ... By the way, I don't think it's weird to like having your kids home during the summer. I think that's great! But it still can be crazy busy!! LOL
