Monday by numbers: Slice of Life

Monday was . . .

1 favourite scarf

2 long walks

3 cups of coffee

4 tiny oranges

5 conferences in Reading Workshop

6 times I was asked if I think Mary (Dory’s monster friend in Dory and the Real True Friend) is real or not

7 hands held

8 minutes of mindful breathing

9 times I said these words, “We don’t lie down at the carpet.”

10 minutes of after dinner dishes

11 times I considered doing laundry and didn’t

12 classroom plants watered

13 minutes reading our novel in the morning

14 minutes reading our novel in the afternoon

15 giggles over Dory antics before I lost count

16 students in attendance today

17 emails I am ignoring until tomorrow

18 cherry blossoms collected on our afternoon walk

19 minutes past three before every student was where they needed to be

20 books put away from the book return bin

21 minutes to finish a blog post

Monday was.

  1. This is a fun format for a slice. It’s amazing how those simple statements combine to paint a rich picture of your day. I wonder how many of us are saying “We don’t lie down on the carpet” simultaneously each day…

  2. Very cute slice, Carrie. For some reason, I started craving hot chocolate after reading about your 3 cups of coffee. I have no idea what the connection is, but I figured I’d share what your slice is inspiring me to do next (i.e., make hot cocoa!).
