Sweet Celebration

These cookies taste as good as they look. I picked up a package at the bakery to share with my friend, Mary. Each month they are decorated for the appropriate holiday...so of course, in March they are green.
I am having my own little celebration as we have officially finished Term 3...I was getting a little nervous, as the threat of possible snow days, brought the threat of lengthening the term into next week...and I just wanted to bring closure. I can just feel the stress leaving my body! Why was I stressed?
1. I had three preps while most teachers have only one or two.
2. Because Fitness for Life is team taught with the PE department, I had 140 students on my roster instead of the usual 110...and...
3. I had the least mature, least respectul students that I have had for years. It's sad how just a handful of students can spoil it for everyone. But they have moved on and I look forward to new groups of students in the fourth and final term.
Thank you for all the kind words in regards to our nasty weather...I want you to see that we had sunshine yesterday and by this afternoon the temperature may actually be above zero!

Those cookies just melt in your mouth, don't they? Yummy....*day four of my diet and I can't wait until I can have ONE of these again..ONE...I am convincing myself that ONE is plenty...ONE....package...NO....ONE cookie...sigh*

I was blessed with a huge sweet tooth. I could eat sweets all day long, and I have.

...after seeing the faucet on that sink, I knew you had a few "challenging" students last quarter!! Celebrate on...you deserve more than cookies for making it through that!
