Reading Teacher Writes

Sharing a love of literacy with fellow readers and writers

SOLSC: Day 9 #sol19


My husband was off work today, so we decided to go to the local home show — 100+ vendors and companies ready to give estimates on anything you could possibly want for your home. We got several ideas and left with the following plans:

*Landscaping for the entire back yard, including plants, pavers, and water features.

*Sunroom/4 Season addition, which will be the new exercise and workout room, complete with a spa hot tub.

*Fire pit and gathering area, with sitting area and a dining table, which will also serve as an outdoor grill area.

*Patio sliding door and new windows

*Masonry project with 2 new columns for the front patio (brick on the bottom, tiered to a designed column that matches the roof color)

*Lawn mowers (two: one for the front yard and a riding mower for the back yard)

Anything else we need? Oh, yeah. A few extra jobs to pay for all of this! LOL! We had a good time, and that was the point of this Saturday. Now we are home, enjoying movies on Netflix while it rains outside, and we are fine with what we have.

I write about literacy education and my love for reading and writing. My passion is sharing titles I use for school libraries, classroom collaborations, and professional development. My goal is to collaborate, research, and share with other life-long literacy learners. Welcome to my blog!

  1. Thanks for adding some humor to the many slices I have read today. I like your last line, “we are fine what we have.”

  2. Owning a home will do that to you! The other thing it will do is leave you with “finishing touches projects.” I can’t even tell you how many projects I have that are *this close* to being done that just linger because I ran out of time and steam. Maybe on summer break!

  3. I used to love going to open houses for just this kind of fun- I could imagine it all being mine. Alas, I am a renter, and okay with that, so no home improvement tasks for me, but it sure is fun to look and dream. I like the sound of all your “plans”.
