Another view of the Cuyahoga River from last week.

I am thinking...
about track starting this spring and how much busier I will be when that starts.

I'm also thinking about curriculum for next year and the things I want to cover with Izzy and Rosie - it will be strange to only have the two girls next year.

I am thankful...

Mr. Pete adapted this recipe for me yesterday - he used coconut flour.  It was a little dryer, but still tasty!

I am wearing...
Black yoga pants, black sweater and purple zippered sweat shirt.

Wore this yesterday. The purple dress I wore for Sam's Graduation a few years ago, and the black cover is from J.C. Penney.

I am pondering...
my progress with Lent so far.  I did not give up Diet Coke cold turkey because when I tried that a few years ago, I broke out with a rash all over my chest.  This year, I am limiting it to mornings only and hoping to cut back from there.

From the Learning Rooms...

A quote to share...

Beware of greed and remain pure and just. Restrain yourself from every vice. He who cannot restrain himself, how will he be able to teach others restraint?
