A relaxing Sunday

I've had a perfect weekend so far...I got some school work done (but not too much to make it a school weekend), did some reading on the patio, watched the lily pad flowers come to life in the pond, and cut the lawn.  And as you can likely see, I did some blog face-lifting...I just need to fiddle with my signature image so the white background is transparent...but the weather is too nice to sit inside for much longer so that will need to wait!

I went out for a few minutes to capture the flora with my point and shoot and got these quick SOOC shots:

This lily pad flower is just so pretty -- my photography skills don't do it justice.  The yellow center portion is a nice complement to the light pink petals.

I'm so excited that the fish have started swimming at the surface when I am close to the pond.  It takes them a few weeks in Spring/Summer to not be scared any more.  After winter, the fish always tend to hide whenever we go near the pond.  Now, they are swimming a ton and so fun to watch!



I've got a busy week coming up -- the last week of school...so a few more concepts to teach, field day, and of course, a field trip.  To top off a great weekend, I'm living off a high of grabbing a great thrifted cardigan last week.  I'm hoping the weather cooperates this week so I can wear a skirt with it! :-)

Have a great week everyone!
