    One more day, eco bunnies! We got this!!! I am thankful for a healthy body that goes to PE and can do the work even when its brain doesn't want to. I am thankful for my contractor Mike, who has begun my kitchen remodel! I am also thankful for pumpkins, because they are super cute and pie pumpkins taste yummy, too!

    Gosh, I am so thankful for the beautiful day! It started out misty gorgeous fall and now is so pretty sunny! So nice! I am also thankful for the fall leaves, which gave me a lot of exercise yesterday, but they are also so pretty to rake up. (I rake up a lot of it where it could be slippery for people and compost most it!) I am also thankful for how hard working my students are! You all make working worthwhile and meaningful! Have a nice day!

    Thankful for a lovely grading space at the pie shoppe, a good rake (wow that was a lot of leaves that came down!), and jasmine tea that smells like heaven! Mm....

      yeah, yesterday blew a ton of my leaves down, got a nice workout this morning! Treated myself to some of my fresh baked bread and tea when I came in...which pie shoppe? I'm a total sucker for good pie.

    Hello, rainy Saturday! I think it is funny that it is called the Pineapple Express! Okay, three things to be thankful for: warm burritos, friends who send funny texts that make me laugh, and wool socks!

    Fail on sugar today! One of my old buddies was in town and we had to do something yummy. I'll be good for the rest I promise! I am thankful for good friends, giggling, and personal trainers who think it's okay if I groan and moan!

    I am thankful for the ability to do laundry. Clean clothes are such a luxury! I am thankful for health care. Despite having to go to get allergy shots all the time, I realize I am lucky! Now bees and wasps won't kill me! Yay! Pollen and dust mites won't be as stressful. My third thank today is for the bunny squad at Annie's. I answered surveys and they send me boxes of mac and cheese and a cool water bottle. Yay!

    I barely coughed today!!! Thanks to beautiful fall leaves, the ease of the PCC shuttle, and yoga that keeps me more flexible mentally and physically!

    Yo yo yo! Three things to be thankful for: PCC PE classes help me stay healthy and reduce my stress, the student grant team from the grants class that wants to help the habitat team write more successful grants, and cough drops (thank you whoever invented these things). Be well.

    I had a coughing attack today and resorted to a jolly rancher, does that ruin my sugar streak? Our admin gave fisherman's friends afterwards, which are great, but kind of hurt! Anything to stop this cough though! So...3 things I'm thankful for: fisherman's friends, my admin not wanting me to cough so much, and the PCC library, which let me renew Breaking Bad, season 5, because I didn't watch any this last week! Hope you all are doing well!!
