Against all reasoning … this Monday looks to be a good day so far! 🙂

The sun is out and it is fairly warm. What is even better is that as I walked in to work this morning, I got to hear a symphony of chickadees singing! 🙂 I have heard them since I was a little girl, and they always sing of spring.


Aren’t they cute?! They are small little things, and it’s hard to grab a picture of them. [The above photo isn’t mine, but if you click on it, it will take you to the photographer’s page.]

Their spring song is distinctive and many people (including myself) think that it sounds like the bird is saying “cheeseburger”. Click on this link and scroll down to Typical Song to hear what I mean. 🙂

Morning Jubilation!


So this morning, while very early is off to a good start! I finished watching one of my favorite movies, “Captain America,” before heading in to work. On the way, I stopped and got a berry white mocha at Caribou, and was happily sipping on this while singing along to “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing!” and “Come All Ye Faithful.” Hopefully, I will still have a voice when I have to teach, which is in less than 30 minutes!

I was also wearing a Kermit hat not too dissimilar to this one! I even wore it around the building for a while and considered wearing it throughout today’s training sessions. Alas, professionalism won out, but the thought was fun while it lasted. 🙂
