Link Love...

Hopefully, I'm back on routine with my blogging schedule. I'm not going to make any promises though. My life tends to get in the way and as I reflect on where I want to go in 2011, life should get in the way! I want to make, laugh and spend time with my family and lastly, push myself to take risks in areas that I tend to stray away from. Many of my links this week have provided me inspiration to reflect on those goals. enjoy!
Oh how I wish I was still teaching! This passage would be discussed over and over with my students. I placed it in everyone's room around here and just asked them to read it and reflect. I didn't get much action from it. But maybe it will stick with them.
This was is ingenious too. He just is the coolest guy. I wish to find my "digital park bench" this year.
And this one. Annie Lamott has always had a strong voice in my reading repertoire. She totally gets it in this short piece.
These are fantastic snowflakes! We tend to save our snowflake making and decorating for the months of January and February. They help to shake the winter doldrums.
And for this weekend...I think I may bake these and eat them all myself. Yum!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Fabulous post! Lamott is one of my favorite writers and I re-read her constantly. Thanks for the nudge from her and the first post link, as one of my goals this year is to increase my creativity, and both those links were just what I needed to read!
