Playing House and Teacher - Rambling

I have always loved to play house.

This has been such a nice relaxing weekend.  No school tomorrow. 

Why do the weekends feel so much more relaxed when you have Monday off?

There's a roast in the oven that smells heavenly.

A fresh pitcher of iced tea. 

And my sweet hubby is snoozing on the couch. 

We went to Barnes and Noble today and I saw this:

Tuesday I will go back to work and play teacher.  My other favorite thing to do.

I am planning to recreate this saying on the wall in my classroom.

The kids might not fully understand but it will make me smile.

They really are lots of sunshine to me.


  1. It's great to have a day off now and then and have time to do things that you want to do! I know you enjoy teaching, too and give so much of yourself! I love teachers! ♥

  2. Love that quote. I instantly think of my two grandsons. :) Enjoy your day off tomorrow.

  3. I'm glad you are having a good weekend, Stacey! Not only do you have Monday off, but the weekend will come sooner!

    I love the quote and it sounds like you really enjoy your students! Yay!


  4. Sounds like the perfect weekend and an extra day off. Even better!!!

  5. Coffee, Barnes and Nobel, dinner in the crockpot...perfect way to spend a weekend day. The quote made me smile and brought some special little ones to my mind. Hope you enjoy your day off today.

  6. That is a great quote and it's a great idea to put it up in your school room to brighten up your days. Your kids will remember it later too I'll bet. Sounds like you had a great weekend.

  7. I've always found Walt Whitman to be so life affirming. Thanks for sharing this inspirational quote!

    Enjoy your day off!

  13. I love that quote Stacey! Perfect for the classroom! And I love a Monday off too...we actually had that last week but it was due to snow and ice....Tuesday too. Seth and Cameron were out all week AND today! I predict they will have a hard time getting going tomorrow!

  20. Stacey,

    You are way too kind... I love your playing house. You are the best teacher!!!


  21. Love that quote. Makes me think of my grandkids. In this foggy weather they are my sunshine.
    Love that red and white pitcher. Great for Valentine's Day. Glad you had an extra day to enjoy your home. Couple of extra days coming up in February too.
    A teacher who loves what she does is what I always wish for my grandkids.

  22. There is indeed lots of different sunshine! Mmmm, roast on a cold day.

  23. Love, love, love the jug and the plate. Two things I love are polka dots and transferware.

  24. Thanks for stopping by with some kind words today
    It was much appreciated!!

  25. What a great quote. It really makes me think about how we can be light in a dark world. I always enjoy stopping by your bright cheerful blog. I bet all the kids in your class really love their teacher.

  26. Hi are you doing? Busy working I know! Enjoy the weekend.....they go so fast!!
