Happy Monday! I have a full week of work and I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself. 😉
My students are working on a big research project over the Japanese American Internment Camps and this week is a full week of research. I found lots of books at the Manhattan library for them to use as print sources and they’ll use electronic sources for the rest. We spent most of last week in my class talking about paraphrasing and plagiarizing so I’m hoping that sticks as we research this week and they find their facts.
It was a lowkey weekend here, which was actually really nice. With no plans or big items on my to-do list, it was so relaxing!
On Friday, Travis and I were both dead tired. I had planned to make a nice chicken dish, but after sitting on the couch a little while, I defaulted to our Friday night norm, frozen pizza. It was always a tradition in my house growing up to have pizza on Friday night, and it’s just something that’s stuck with me. Having warm, gooey, cheesy carbs and watching tv is all I can accomplish on a Friday night most weeks. 🙂 We watched a few episodes of Shameless and called it a night.
On Saturday morning, it felt like a spring day so we got in a long walk around our neighborhood. Travis had plans to go back to Sabetha and hunt/camp with a friend so I made that chicken dish for lunch and then he headed off.
That afternoon, I got some laundry done, some lounging ( 😉 ) and ran some errands. I needed to get books for my students’ research and spent way too long at the library trying to find as many as possible.
I also ran to Marshall’s to look at their lamp options. Earlier this week, I moved the lamp we had in our tv room up to my office to see what a gray option would look like in there, and I ended up liking it much more than the nautical rope one. I actually found a lamp at Marshall’s almost identical to our tv room lamp (just a little lighter) and snatched it up!
It looks so much more modern and “clean” looking in there, and now I need to return the Hobby Lobby one. Can you tell I’m an indecisive person? I want everything to be just perfect. I also found the cutest copper pineapple and faux fur rug as accents for my office. I swear that home decor is an addiction for me. 🙂
I’m playing around with adding some color into this room, and stocked the basket with books from one of my favorite series as a kid. It might be a little too bright for me, but it’s staying for now until I think of something else. 🙂
I also ran by Hobby Lobby to pick up a picture that we had matted and framed.
We had bought this map of Maine from our trip this summer and wanted it professionally matted to look a little better and to match the map we bought on our honeymoon at Turks and Caicos! (We used the same frames and matting for both maps. Maybe one day we will have a wall of maps of places we have been?!)
On Sunday, I had a lazy morning, did some reading, and finished laundry, and then Travis was home by mid-afternoon.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing and doing some little house projects. My friend Jessica came by to talk a little while too.
Have a great week!
