New Beginnings

farm 10 2015 020

My life revolved around school schedules for so long that I don’t think it will ever change.  While January means new beginnings for many, fall is my new beginning as well as my favorite season.  The colors of fall, the smells….. Halloween and Thanksgiving.  What’s not to like about it? I spent fifty years in the classroom, either as a student or as a teacher, so it seems logical that fall is when I make my resolutions.

 The first day of school is my New Year’s Day.  

Even after being retired for four years, I can still accomplish more during the fall season than all the other seasons combined.  It’s like a new notebook and pencil in my book bag…. a blank slate with endless possibilities.  

It seems right to me to attempt NaBloPoMo on November 1, right smack in the middle of fall, a fresh idea for me to try, a blank slate with endless possibilities.  

Welcome to a month of blogging each and every day!  Good luck to all of those who have taken the challenge!

    That must be one thing that all teachers have in common. I’ve been retired for eight years and my new years is still September 1st! Probably always will be.

    I’ve done NaBloPoMo in the past, but not for a few years. I used to be a regular blogger but slacked off from it this year, so I’m hoping NaBloPoMo will get me back into the habit. I am not retired from teaching, but I am sort of retired from home schooling. My daughter graduated from home school in 2014, and I have really missed putting lesson plans together and joining her in learning adventures. One of my sisters retired from teaching two years ago and says she doesn’t really miss it at all, but I think I would if I were her. Looking forward to reading more on your blog.

  3. Hi, there! This is my first time to participate in NaBloWriMo. I found you from the blog roll – your blog name stood out to me because I’m living life in the 50s too. Good luck with the challenge. I’ll be checking back in with you!


  4. As a teacher, I absolutely agree. Fall is the new beginning for me as well. Good luck with NaBloPoMo, it’s great fun!
