Time is flying by and I can't believe we are almost at Christmas. This week has been a busy one. The weather here has been warm with a few rain showers. This warm weather isn't helping to make it feel like Christmas. I need some snow, a white Christmas would be great, but I am not getting it this year. Maybe my friends and family back home will have one for me. Send me some pictures!
This past week I celebrated a birthday. It was a good day. The teacher that I work with got my co worker and I birthday cakes. We both share the same birthday. We got a chocolate cake and an ice cream cake and the students sung us Happy Birthday. I have been enjoying my early birthday present from my hubby which was the Fit Bit Charge HR. I am loving it, it keeps me motivated to get my steps in. I just need to work the gym into my work schedule. It is interesting to see how many steps you are taking during the day.
This week we also had Mario's Winter Ball. We got all dressed up and enjoyed a nice evening out. The food was good and the dessert was interesting. It was a Redwine poached pear with mascarpone creme.
It is crazy to me that it is mid 50's in the middle of December. I guess all those snowy cold winters in Ohio has me thinking December should be cold and snowy!. The dogs and I spent some time today at the dog park. I love watching them run and smell. Sissy is standing guard.
Today we took a trip to the Mercedes Benz Museum. It was very interesting to see how the vehicles have changed over the years. An audio guide was included in admission so additional information was learned. At the end of the tour, we were able to keep the lanyard which held the audio guide.
A teacher who loves traveling the world.
