Link Love

Sep 14, 2014 favourite day of the week. A day for sleeping in, twenty toes, binge watching old television shows, listening to music and dancing in your underwear. Okay...maybe not the last one, but you get the drift. Anything goes on Sundays!

I'm binge watching The Good Wife today. I got into this show really late (last week). After episode one, I was hooked. I've been catching up since. I am now on Season Two. Before I proceed, can I just say...I so want Alicia and Will to get together. The sexual chemistry is working double time where those two are concerned. I know I can probably find out what happens to or for them by reading past episode guides, but I like the suspense, so I'll continue to watch with anticipation.

Anyway...I'm late this week with my five links, but better late than never right?

2. I'm not sure if I'll ever be a morning person, but I'm willing to give this a shot.

Happy Sunday!

Finding Beauty

Sep 13, 2014

I recently came across a lovely blog appropriately titled, This Darling Day. Every week Aimee hosts a link up called 'Finding Beauty'. As the name suggests it is about capturing and appreciating those beautiful moments that we come across during the day. It encourages us to stop and smell the roses, take smaller steps and be fully present in the here and now. I love this. Of course I'll be participating every week. For my first week, I decided to share these photos of my recent visit to Tobago. I love my island life mainly because of views like this. The beach is my happy place.

Grateful Heart linkup w/ Ember Grey

This week has to be dedicated solely to my job. 

After a restful and happy summer vacation, we returned to school last week Wednesday. I am in Primary Two (seven year olds) this year and so far, it's been a welcomed and needed change. I previously taught in prep one (five year olds). I am loving the change in pace and structure in the older class. The children follow a timetable through out the day, they move through classes easily and follow instructions a bit more diligently. Of course, the change in curriculum takes some getting used to, but, as they say, the magic happens when you out of your comfort zone. I am eagerly looking forward to learning as much as I can and becoming an even better version of myself during this new year. 

When you think about it, teachers are truly blessed. We spend time with children everyday, we get to experience the wonders of the world through their innocent eyes. They keep us modern and remind us everyday that the important things in life are felt rather than seen. Our work day in essence ends at 1:30pm (at least for us). And not to mention the's one of the highlights!

I have a career and the education to back it up. I didn't go back to school to get a degree in business or accounting or hospitality management, I went back to school to get a degree in education. This means that I am a bona fide teacher! 

I've been in the workforce for almost fifteen years. I can finally say that I am settled in my career and definitely on the right track. Slowly, but surely, I am moving forward and making deposits in my Wheel of Life Bank Accounts. This is progress and I'm grateful.
