Because love is a sugar cookie slathered in cream cheese icing.
Today was kinda an off day for me. I just wasn't very determined in my workout...even got gently scolded by my spin instructor for my lack of focus! I skipped the dance class. And later, I bumped into some friends at a coffee shop and probably came off as a total ditz because I just felt out of it. So, my solution was to go home and clean house for two+ hours. Does tend to clear the head, yes.
The most Valentine-y thing Casey and I did today was make these cookies...of course, he did dub the above cookie-cutter "Sharkbite." We did some other cooking: spaghetti and meat sauce, put together a lasagna to bake tomorrow, but I had planned to make chicken and dumplings and roast a chicken for Casey...but I lacked the determination.
Hopefully tomorrow. :-) Next week, I will be teaching absolutely nothing, as it's the last week of the term...just review, games and testing. I am hoping that my French 3 students will rise to the occasion to do some great things with the Little Prince essays and oral presentations. It's such a beautiful book to teach, and it really feels like a culmination of three years of teaching when they can produce a real essay in French (with lots of help). Plus I just love the book.
Almost as much as I love sprinkles!
