Happy Day

Happy Day. Happy 'Earth' Day. A day set apart to celebrate the beauty of this beautiful, God-given Earth.

I celebrated by taking a quick stroll in my navy blue pointed toe heels down scented Seerley Blvd after school. For about two weeks each year, Seerley is gorgeous. I purposely drive to and from work just to admire the trees. If you've ever seen the movie, 'Pleasantville,' it reminds me of the scene where Buddy takes his girlfriend to Lover's Lane in that really cool convertible and on the way, they drive down this lane with these pretty pink flowered trees. The petals from the trees are falling like rain down into the car and since the rest of the film is in black and white, the pink petals stick out like color on a blank canvas. It would be the best place for wedding pictures. I think I may go back some early morning before the traffic hits. That is, if the trees decide to hold out a little longer.

One of my students surprised me today with a homemade blanket for my baby. A sweet, fleece, Noah's Ark blanket with a handmade card signed, 'love, Alex.' Her mom helped her purchase fabric and she was so excited to bring me the gift. Little did she know it is a gift that will always hold a special place in my heart. It will be so cool to curl up with it and tell my future son or daughter that the blankie was made by one of my high school students.
