I love watching movies by the fire. This is a view of my tv and current blazing fire. A secret not many know about me is that I’ve never watched a 007 movie. Tonight I’m watching my first one, “A View to a Kill.” I have a lot of catching up to do.

I spent almost 3 hours preparing goals and lessons for my teaching this week. I’m hopeful I can make more of a difference in my students’ lives by helping them grow, teaching them Common Core strategies for now, for the test, and for college/career.

Blogging was fine today. I did a movie review of Insidious instead of a Daily Post prompt. Sometimes I break away from my goals to just write on my own.

My book was kind of boring today but I found out something very exciting from a friend on Good Reads: The author, Joe Hill, is Stephen Kings son. His flair for Americana shows that the Apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
