Celebrate: Five Star Things About the Week

It’s Saturday, time to celebrate at Ruth Ayres Writes.

ONE

Five days of tracking my food.  I try to be mindful of what I eat.  I want to track my food and exercise.  Tracking exercise is easy. Food? Not so much. Been I have been using “My Fitness Pal” app this week and it’s pretty painless.

This orchid which bloomed. I received the plant two years ago from a school parent.  It bloomed, blooms fell off, and it was ignored.  Two months ago I noticed the blossom shoot.  That’s pretty amazing.  I think it’s even prettier than the first time it bloomed.

THREE

Going to the Northwest Council of Computer Education conference in Portland, Oregon.  So great to be able to attend a conference and be with your peers.  It did make my head spin with possibility.

FOUR

The poems that are being written by fifth graders.  The are writing “Deeper Thinking” poems in response to their classroom nonfiction unit.   My two Friday classes were quiet like mice in their work. This idea came from Michelle when she had the Ditty of the Month Challenge in January.  It was based on Joyce Sidman’s poem in Winter Trees.  they will be on postcards and shared at this blog in April.

  1. That’s a nice Spring list. That flower is so pretty. I need to start tracking my food and exercise too. Can anyone use the celebrate picture and join in?

  2. I love your attitude!!! Celebration is where it’s at. That doesn’t mean that those of that like to celebrate; don’t reflect on our choices. We probably focus on them too much. It then pushes us to balance ourselves to “CELEBRATE!”
    I loved your positive vibe! Thank you for sharing!
