I hope to be back to regular posting but for now, let me just start by wishing you all a fun Halloween! Remember, if you don't want to be tempted by the goodies, make sure to buy something that you don't like ;)

October Already?

Can somebody tell me when summer ended? All of a sudden I'm wrapping myself up in a blanket at night and during the days wonder when it might be warm enough to get out in my garden and finish things off!

I've been incredibly busy. I got a part-time job as a latchkey teacher at a school not far from my house. The money isn't great but the experience is priceless. My group vary from 15-20 students ranging from grade 3-grade 5. I think I surprised them by not letting them get away with murder like they've been used to! The day I brought in my whistle was the real proof that here is a teacher who means business :)

I'm continuing with my volunteering and will begin at a school library next week--I'm super excited about that. I am also taking an online course that I've barely scratched the surface on, am still tutoring and I just finished getting my first aid/cpr certification. Whew! And, when there is free time I do the url rating. I finished my first month and am looking forward to a healthy paycheque so, things are going quite well.

Hope that you are all well and enjoying a wonderful autumn season!
