Frazzled

I am still here. I am so sorry that I haven't posted anything lately. I have been completely swamped. I am a preschool teacher and administrator and am in the midst of getting our school year up and running. I can not believe that it is time once again for it all to begin. Yesterday and this evening we have been having our orientation meetings, so I get to meet all the fresh faced little 3 year olds that will be in my class this year. They are so precious! I can not wait to get to know each of them. I really do count it as an honor to have this position. These are the beginnings of their long educational roads. BUTTTT there is much to prepare so I have been so busy with that. We currently only have just a few spots left in the preschool which has classes for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. It was so exciting to see the spots fill up this spring and summer. We must be doing something right! The bulletin boards are up and lesson plans are rolling. Wow! I can not do it alone though. I have a great staff who is always ready to jump in and help. They are amazing.

I am also trying desperately to help my mother-in-law as she prepares to have a booth in a VERY large festival here in our community. She is up to her neck in quilts and binding right now. I have made toddler aprons, baskets, and a few totes for her to sell. I am excited to see how it goes for her. My sister-in-law has also made some pillows and aprons for her to put in her booth too. Aprons are pretty trendy right now, so we'll see. It has been fun. I do feel bad as I have been so busy with preschool that I haven't been sewing like I had been. Rosie hasn't seen much action these past few days. (That is my sewing machine, in case you were wondering.)

And there are tomatoes....lots of tomatoes in my fridge. That means that I have to make sauce this week! Oh my! Oh dear! That will probably be my next blog....roasted tomato sauce.

I am also still working on my big secret project. This with everything else going on has made me very worn out! I hope to share this project with you really soon. Let me get into preschool gear and then hopefully soon. Preschool actually starts next Tuesday. Bring on the kiddos!

I'm thinking about showing you some of the fun things that I do for my job which I don't really think of as a job. It's fun! :) But it is a big part of my life...so we'll see.

And lastly...my hubby is a music FREAK! If you know him, you know this is an understatement. He runs the blog/label Chasing Lions. He lives, breathes, and eats music, but not all kinds. He is very particular...a music snob, some might even say. :) Due to his music blog he is ALWAYS getting cd's in the mail. He introduced me to an artist that I have really enjoyed. Her name is Jonatha Brooks. I really like her stuff and her sound. I think I am hooked. There is one song that he had me listen to in particular and it made me cry like a baby because it was about babies. I wanted to share it with you.

Sweetest Angel

Every night about eight o'clock
I wind the stem of my little clock
And when I look in the crystal glass
I see a lot of faces pass
Of those I knew
And those I know
And you now coming
And you to go

Here's a word I'd like to whisper
And I'd like to have you listen

All this world is made of love
You are fresh from heaven above
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel

When I hold you by your hand
I'm in my happy promised land
When I kiss you in the dark
I'm just happy as a lark
So let me come as close as I can
And lay me down beside you

Here's a word I'd like to whisper
And I'd like to have you listen

All this world is made of love
You are fresh from heaven above
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel

So let me come as close as I can
Let me bring my scattered pages
Let me lay down here beside you
Tonight, and I will whisper

All this world is made of love
You are fresh from heaven above
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel in this world
You're the sweetest angel

And this is my sweetest angel. I love her more than I even know.
