The Trifecta!

I cannot believe it has been over a month since I last posted anything. It seems to me that since I have gotten my Ipad and gotten sucked into games like Trivia Crack, I've been far less productive in most areas of my life. Enough said...I'm back and ready to share some thoughts. I'm going for the trifecta today. (Trifecta: a run of three wins or grand events)

The first grand event will contain the second which will contain the third. It is like opening a gift, to open a gift to open a gift! It is your lucky day!
First link is one of my all time favorites...fiveforfriday2_thumb[3]

It may be tricky to come up with five because I've been spending most of the last two weeks in my pajamas eating cookies for breakfast. Enough said...That is my number one. Cookies make a wonderful breakfast because they beg to have milk with them, so this way I did get a serving of calcium. Right? RIGHT?

Remember how I said I had a present inside a present? Well here it is the second grand event. I'm linking up with Farley, too! It is time for Currently...

It isn't too late for you to link up! I'm linker 266. Maybe by the time I'm done it will be 267, but that's okay. It's a great party.

Kitty is sitting on the table  my purse watching me right now. I've trained her not to get on the table.

I'm not a big one on making resolutions. I do (here comes the tri- of fecta!) like contemplating one word for the year.  I can do that. I can just think of one little word. Link number three come on in......

My one word: Listen
I realize I spend a lot of time talking. I finish sentences for my family. I tell God what I want Him to do in my life. I quite often feel like I've got all the answers...I'm the teacher after all. I realize I have a lot to learn. I want to listen to God's Word and soak it in like never before. I want to listen to my husband and children with not just my ears, but also my heart. I want to listen to my students and better understand their needs as learners.

I spent hours re-doing one of my favorite TPT projects. I think it is better than ever. I think I spent more time fixing it than creating it in the first place. If you think you could use it just click on the picture below to get it on google docs. If you would like to buy it, I'm cool with that. You can. Just click here to go ahead and put it in your cart!

Happy 2015! May your year be filled with amazing people. It is who you are with that makes the journey worth travelling! 


  1. Kitty made me chuckle because she's trained not to get on the table, so she's on your purse. LOL.
    And I love your "one word" thing. I don't do New Year's Resolutions, so I like coming up with a word. Now to come up with one...

  2. Well your kitty is cleaning herself and my 3 dogs are SNORING! I'm linky up #268 so you know there are people behind you! :)

    Getting fit for a Mother of the Bride dress is always a good reason!

  3. Love that you did two link ups in one post.

  4. Your resolution word is a good one :) And I love your punctuation pack. Very well done. Thanks for making it in black and white, too-- the cost of ink is painful. Nice "meeting you." I'm following. Kathleen

  8. I love that you have taught the Cat not to get on the She is a smart one to get on the purse. I think we could all listen more, great word for 2015. The punctuation pack looks great. Wishing you the best for the New Year!

  9. What a good kitty! Mine are similarly trained to stay off the table (almost) after 15 years. : )
    I love this cute blog!

  10. will be printing Punctuation Power to use next week! love it - thank you :o)

  11. Your post makes me smile. By the way, I just read something this week about listening. I wish I could remember where that was. It cuts perfectly with your OLW.


Please give me a hoot!
