“What is your favourite part about the holidays?”
Questioned Hayley’s history teacher, via Smart Board.
Hayley scrawled, “How light-hearted and airy life becomes. Tension hides away in the corner, at least for a couple of weeks!”
Still, she knew she had to tunnel deeper than that. Shovel every extra scrap of gravel away, weave through every artery, kick past all barriers blocking her inmost spirit, until Hayley’s fingertips could brush the response mounted in the bottom of her heart.
Ahah! Found it.
“Also, the heightened social acceptability of replacing meals with chocolate.”
Really, I promise, that was raw genunuity! : )
School today – the flashy neon bridge leading over to holiday break – was just what I thought it would be; smooth, and clear enough for ease of passage!
German holiday card – approriately meshed together during German class. An example of what we accomplished during school today! : )
The other blocks of the day weren’t very different…consumed whole by doodling! (Even if scribbling my wrist to near fracture wasn’t the task…for the circumstances that we were given a casual assignment!)
And, we wrapped up our week-of-poetry in language arts. (With a pretty Christmas bow!) Yesterday, we worked on limericks.
“There once was a girl with a dream,
To travel in a blue time machine.
A quirky Doctor to be her guide,
In a police box that’s much bigger on the inside,
Through the universe’s infinite scheme.”
Happy holidays! Melt into the spirit, let happiness bloom, and appreciate every generous essence of life! (Am I making it obvious that my goal for the next couple of weeks is to embrace positivity?! Try it!! I really, really believe everyone should – take full advantage of the already cheerful season and convert it into solid, positive energy!)
