A Day in the Life of.........ME! New Words

Stay Tuned for New Words at the end of the blog.

Wed., March 16:  The picture isn't so great, oh well!  Check out the zebra sweater....That was one of my deals that I found at Target last weekend.

Wednesday was a pretty good day.  The weather was sunny and mild.  It felt like spring!!!  I had a 5:00 meeting at church, Zumba!  :0(

On the way to my meeting, I saw that Clarksville was getting a "Jimmy John's".  It's going in the old TCBY.  I'm not sure that is the best location.

Thursday, March 17:  ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!  I love the color green and I have Irish roots, so......Top of the mornin' to ya!!!  We learned about the legend of leprechauns and they got to write their own stories.

Here I am wearing green for St. Patrick's Day.  Our school was a sea of green!

Picking up my class from Gym.  You can see all of their green!!!

It was a gorgeous day on the playground.  It was right at 80 degrees.

Update on Buffalo Wild Wings:  I think most of the work will be inside now.

Thursday afternoon:  I got an appointment with my primary care doctor.  Looks like I'm getting arthritis in my feet.  I'm too young for that, but I WILL NOT STOP!!!

I love how long it is staying light.  I went to the Y and got home around 5:30 and it was still daylight.  I took the dog out for a walk.  If you look at the picture above, you can see that Cocoa is really concentrating.  She was actually concentrating on the new little Daschund in the neighbor's yard.  Unfortunately, after this short excursion in the yard, I found a tick on me!!!!  I think the summer is going to be bad!!! (for ticks, that is!!)

The next picture is me by one of the Bradford Pear Trees.  The sun is bright and in my eyes.

  1. Interesting! Bradford Pear trees have bloomed over night, also Tulip Poplars. Hards are being mowed, Murray is looking good!
