Day 5 of 365- Concert tickets!!!

I'm going to see some music!!! I love live music, but hardly ever go because of the cost. I passed on going to Maroon 5 last year when they were in town because the price was just too much. I wasn't going to do that again (even though that money should really go into my savings, I'd already decided 6 months ago that I was going to this concert no matter what!) Then, I found out the Fratellis were also coming to town and the tix were only $18!!!! And they will be in a small venue with general admission, meaning possibly I can get right up by the stage like I did for James Blunt! :) Unfortunately, the concerts are on consecutive nights during the week! Good thing I can assign a 2 day in-class dialogue to the students those days. ;) Adam Levine, here I come!!

Day 4 of 365-Bedroom

Kinda boring today. Just a pic of my bed! I was messing around with the timer function to take the photo without flash. I really like that bed cover so I likely will bring it with me. I'll continue working on using some of my camera features....

View of my classroom from my desk at lunch. The kids put their stuff down then we go to lunch.

Day 2 of 365- Tea

Tea Time! I bought this in London last year and am finally drinking it, since I know I don't have to "save it for special occasions" anymore! We can buy it here AND hopefully this time next year, I'll be buying it at Tesco's myself! ;) It really has been what keeps me going physically (caffeine to keep me awake after all the sleepless nights!) and mentally (I smile and think of London/UK whenever I drink it!) This photo was taken next to the window in my classroom. Look at the butterfly bushes I've got outside! I will take a photo of them one of these days....

Yum. Homemade macaroni and cheese that turned out perfectly!

Hopefully this will be easy to recreate over there...
