7 things about me

So Katherine gave me a creative blogger award cuz she wants me to write more stuff so Thank you Kat. You get a post but since I can't figure out all that link stuff right now I will just do the most important thing write the 7 things about myself.
1- I have written 3 childrens books none of which will be published but I love to make up stories to tell to my kids and preschoolers. I especially like to tell Fairy Tales- I love Fairy Tales.
2- I am also a reader. My favorite book is most likely Pride and Prejudice. My husband got me Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for my birthday and I am quite enjoying it- (especially the appalling things they have Mr Darcy say to Miss Bingley;)
3-I always need a creative outlet of some kind. I often hop from obsession to obsession. My new hobbies are making bows and digital scrapping. I have actually made about 40 dollars selling bows at my school- Mostly I just give them away as presents.
4-I teach preschool and have been doing so for 10 years- The longer I teach the more I am convinced that I know nothing about children.
5-I made a meal plan for the month of September for the first time in my life and I am surprised to say that I follow it most of the time. I really only have to do dinner because we eat Breakfast and Lunch at my School. Still it is better than the frozen dinners we were eating nearly every day.
6-I love music. I am not good at music. I sing okay and play the flute a little-(mostly at Christmas just like Katherine- there is something about Flute music at Christmas I love). But I probably know more kids songs than the average person- Sometimes we play a game and school where the kids say a topic and I try to sing a song I know about it- fun but sometimes I have to make one up on spot.
7-I find that I am more comfortable in a space if there is just a hint of chaos about it. When things are too clean it make me uncomfortable. Does that make me obsessive non-complusive (the opposite of OCD).

I hope that is enough to satisfy the Kreative Bloggers(sorry don't know how to post it-I will learn how another time perhaps)
If you read me Seven things about you would be awesome to hear as well-( considering that I haven't talked face to face with most of you in years).

Fall is ALMOST in the Air

I love Cache Valley in the Fall!! I don't remember fall being like this where I grew-up. I can't wait until we drive up Logan Canyon and all the leaves have changed. It is really breathtaking. Even Sardine Canyon is beautiful this time of year. Fall is my favorite time of year. Teaching Pre-school in the Fall is so fun with themes like apples and leaves and pumpkins. So much to do and learn... About this time of year I start to get excited about Halloween too. Halloween was a big deal at my house and it is my bosses favorite Holiday. I am gearing myself up for the Carnival, and the contests for the best decorated classroom, pumpkin and staff costume. I won the pumpkin contest last year-it was the first time I ever won anything so that was cool I made a Cinderella Coach (I knew who the voters were). On top of all that it is time to figure out costumes. I am required to dress up and we all know how much I hate that;). I still haven't decided what to be usually I know by now. Hannah is old enough to choose her own costumes so I have to go along with her choice to be a witch. Clara is going to be her black cat. I bought part of her costume today. I always feel better if I have costumes done early so I can relax and enjoy the rest of the fun. Fall is coming. I feel a hint of it every morning and I can't wait.
