Happy Saturday! I have no plans today. Steve went to some work brunch thing down in Carlsbad and he said I was totally welcome to come which was super nice but, instead, I opted to stay in bed looking on my phone.
In other words, I chose to do the same thing I’ve been doing all week.
That is not called a rut. That is called my summer morning routine.
See? I eventually get out of bed and roll into my office with a cup of coffee.
I was drinking coffee out of my fancy Teachers Pay Teachers mug and I was getting ready to do some scheduling in my new Erin Cobb Lovin’ Lit planner which she gave away for FREE at her session in Vegas.
I spent a lot of time thinking and checking social media in order to write one thing down on that planner.
It was exhausting.
This was Steve helping me (which means he was doing all the work while I took pictures) with a project for my classroom. I’m sort-of-kind-of redoing my class library. It’s not done yet or I’d show you pictures. And I would also have to go to school. And do stuff.
Anywho, he had to cut the foam for a cushion and the guy at Joanne’s told me a turkey carving knife would work the best so that’s what Steve used.
And, apparently, you need gloves when working with foam and a turkey carving knife.
I love how handy he is. He is seriously my handy husband and I love him!
I used my Cameo!!!
I’ve had that thing since October and kept saying I would figure it out and I would use it and then I never did because it seemed hard.
And I like easy things.
So Lauren from A Teachable Teacher came over this week and gave me a tutorial! Aris from Sailing into Second also needed some help so she joined us, too, and we had a crafting party! And now I know how to use my Cameo and I made some new labels for the dollar tree baskets I just purchased for my library make-over.
I am telling you — this Cameo thing is GENIUS.
I want to Cameo everything now.
Yes, I’m pretty sure Cameo is a verb.
I am not a crafty person at all, though, so don’t you worry. I will not be coming to you live each week with a new project.
No thank you.
Murphie and I went on a walk this morning even though the forecast said there was a 40% chance of rain.
We are such daredevils.
I wanted to document the stormy weather (without the rain because it still hasn’t rained and I’m still waiting) and told Murphie to sit and look at me.
She sat. But that was all.
I tried again and she still wouldn’t look at me.
But at least she’s smiling in this one.
I told Steve she is really going to miss me when school starts up again and he said she is probably looking forward to it. I was all excuse me, what is that supposed to mean? and he said I talk to her too much and don’t let her get a word in edgewise.
I just finished my Back to School Reader’s Theater for Advanced Readers and I absolutely love it, if I do say so myself. And I do. I say so. It features Murphie and Milo who are becoming very real to me.
Should I be worried?
I always enjoy reading your blog – you have such a fun writing personality and always make it entertaining to read. I have the exact same summer routine you're talking about. I had big plans today, but it's rainy and stormy in Vegas so sitting on the couch watching Netflix sounds way better than being productive.
Have a great weekend!

Thanks for making me feel better about the amount of time it takes me to "get ready to work." I have to make coffee, clean up the coffee table, open all my notebooks and my laptop, sometimes crunch up some pecans in some yogurt, and then turn on Workaholics. It's a lot of work. If my start time goal is, like 10:00, I usually won't actually start working until 10:30. I kind of feel like a dog that has to spin around three times before he lays down.
Buzzing with Ms. B
Every time I see that you've written a new blog post in my Bloglovin' emails I get so excited because I know I'm in for a good chuckle. As a dog lover myself, I love hearing about Murphy. I have a beagle so most of my pictures of my dog have his nose to the ground 🙂
Ha! I totally had the same conversation about how my dog will miss me when summer is over. My hubby said, "nah, he'll be happy for the break!" Humph! Those Murphie pics are cute, she's got such an air about her… Like, "oh no, it's the paparazzi again. I guess this is the price of fame". Your book labels look great! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Sounds like you are enjoying the summer break! Murphie is adorable!

I love that your husband helps you with your classroom projects! Mine is the same way! I think he actually looks forward to my projects because it gives him an excuse to use his tools! Ha!
