Six-Word Saturday #65

Posted on: September 5, 2015

SixWordSaturday

It has been a busy week!

I love pretty much everything about my life right now, but I wouldn’t mind some personal downtime. Our household keeps growing; it now includes three cats (two of whom are fosters) and a dog. I do a lot of juggling feeding, playtime, and training. Seeing them all play makes my hectic schedule worth it.

School is in full-swing and going well. I support just fifth-grade this year. Nonetheless, as a special education teacher, I’m still consistently adjusting instruction, schedules, accommodations, and tests to meet the individual needs of my students. My students continually amaze me with how needy but also how mature they can be. Oh, I’m also teaching writing club and have a whopping fifteen students in attendance! Although I work part-time, my hours are NEVER just that amount.

My writing life is also full. I write reviews for two local groups and articles for another. Also, after several months away from it, I’ve resumed work on my novel last month. The age of my main character has changed. I’m also playing with the format itself. Right now, I’m telling her story as a series of blog posts.

Monday being Labor Day, a long weekend is ahead. My husband will be off too. I’m looking forward to hanging out with him, but also maybe taking some extra naps and catching some additional reading time. 🙂

What’s your week been like?

Amazing, but Labor Day weekend now seems like a long time ago. 😦 Ah, but ahead is fall break and then Thanksgiving. There is still much to be grateful about!

Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

Busy but in a lazy way. 😉

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:

  • Joni: The unforgettable story of a young woman’s struggle against quadriplegia & depression by Joni Eareckson
  • The True Story of the World’s Most Beloved Animal Sanctuary by Samantha Glen
  • Brothers in hope : the story of the Lost Boys of Sudan–refugees by Mary Williams
  • The Inner Life of Cats by Thomas McNamee
