the little things that make life good
That’s all I an say!
It’s FRIDAY!! After a long week, and a nice drink with dinner, I’m ready for bed!!!
On second thought…
Do you indulge when you feel sorry for yourself? Maybe I am being presumptuous to think you even feel sorry for yourself. Maybe I am making myself feel better to think that we all have our moments. 🙂 Here’s my grocery list when I am feeling sorry for myself!
Finally, a title and all!
Ice, ice, baby
I can’t help it. It’s in my blood.
Back from the movies. Hunger Games haiku ahead
I promised a review of The Hunger Games midnight show – and I’m delivering. If you haven’t read the book(s), you might find spoilers. You’ve been warned.
The best reason of all to retire!

I am away from my computer for three days. And will not be able to comment on any other slicers. It may take me a day to approve comments. Please forgive the delay. I am able to sneak on for a few minutes on my cousins computer to post my stories. Miss my friends.
Dreaming of my beautiful Spain, now that vacation reservations are made!
How does it all fit? Thoughts on packing
Why do you teach writing workshop (especially poetry!) if they’re not going to become “professional writers”? (Have you ever been asked this question?)
I hate filing the taxes. . . .
Building a PLN via Twitter! 🙂
The great number puzzle of life.
Used book bargains!

I Love When My Students….
I sometimes wonder what is wrong with me. Why can’t I stop drinking soda? I know it’s bad for me, but it has a hold on me. Can anyone out there relate?
SOLC 23 of 31: Making it Permanently Published
Why a writer’s notebook is a good thing to have
Thank you to Christy and Linda who in their comments offered to come to my rescue. But as we know: everyone has to solve their own problems.
A good time with my family http://keeferto.typepad.com/blog/2012/03/refinding-a-thin-place.html
On a side note this marks a personal best for number of slices completed in the SOL challenge. Which is fun since I definitely didn’t keep up with the daily part of this ride.
What to write about today….http://jessicawhitmore.com/blog/2012/03/what-to-write-about-today/
A story for my brother
A PD Book Spine Poem

Boom Boxes and Me
My try at a book spine poem: http://reflectionsontheteche.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/on-writing/
Student Slices! We’re still slicing and getting better each day. 🙂
A visit to Daufuskie Island is like a throw-back in time:
what is reading like these days?
Out for a Run
Stuck for an idea today so I wrote about three random bright spots in my day.
I was perpetually single and subject to set-ups…
Dear Slicers, I just want to apologize — for some reason, my home computer will not let me comment on certain blog posts despite all my tries. Please know, I’m enjoying each of your writing immensely. Keep it up — can you believe we’re on #23 already?
Comparing the book to the movie…or vice versa
Air Conditioner – already?
Posting early today (for me) so that I have my weekend to-do list already in mind!
Since it is Friday, I thought I’d try my version of photos and poetry.
Crazy Hair Day!
What a night…
Come into my house, Gretel…
At the museum
Spring has come early this year….
The Eight Diamond Lords – guest post by youngest son
family event at school –
She’s coming!! And spring break is hours away . . .
Do any of you do Daily 5, here is my Daily 10…just to get to school…hmm…tired this morning.
I’ve got that lucky feeling again!
Spring is here…and our class is in the grips of Spring Fever:
Weekend Plans–Let’s check the list
This one shouldn’t even count, bit of cheat it is…
THAT CLASS–have you ever taught it? A dysfunction family of students, struggling to get along, a negative vibe.
Thanks in advance for your ideas to help me with THAT CLASS.
I drove to work yesterday dreading the 14 hour day of teaching and night-time parent conferences. It was foggy and dark; but somehow, the tiny shoots of green and field of pink flowers in the school yard reminded me of the promise of spring. (This entry is longer than my post today!)
I hit the wall today…this is all I could come up with!
I pulled out my voice recorder yesterday and asked my students if they wanted to podcast some poems they had written. Quite a few raised their hands. You can come listen, if you want.
This post is in response to a slicer who was asking “why Twitter?” Sorry, I can’t remember who it was!
I’m off for a week of play with daughter & granddaughters!
My weekly gratitude list. 🙂
A heightened awareness of colour, more attuned hearing and sense of smell, and the world is a wonderful place. No I am not in love but fear I may have slice-itis. Do you have any of the symptoms? http://thelitladies.edublogs.org/2012/03/23/slice-of-life-19/
Au revoir! I’m on spring break now!
A conversation in a school today, caused me to reflect on a fortunate childhood. It wasn’t passive and it wasn’t for wimps. Too many kids seem to be getting their adventures via technology, rather than a life well spent making discoveries, and learning to cope with the bruises.
Trying on a new poem with my ‘growing up’ & ‘saying goodbye’ project.
A little part of the journey I take each day to school
If you keep making that face it’s going to freeze like that!
The List Goes on. This one is short and sweet. http://windows2mylife.blogspot.com/2012/03/and-list-goes-on.html
I am appealing to the profound collective wisdom of this gracious group.
This is the most amazing group of people. My deepest gratitude for all of those who commented on my post today. I spent the evening replying to each one of you (not sure if you ever see these replies outside of returning to the original post) – that was my commenting for the night.
Today I thank you – you are wonderful.
A little surprise during class picture day today.
Thanks to the SOLSC, I’m starting my adventures as a word collector.
Time, now, keeps on ticking
Cannot fall asleep again, so here I am.
