Blue Serenity is pretty much the opposite of how I feel on Monday Mornings but I channeled it anyway.  Today I had an "In-Service" to attend for my job out in the San Fernando Valley.  Even though I have so much work to do, I tried to be present and enjoy the experience.  The campus was lovely and after the rain cleared, I took a lovely small walk.

As I alluded to, Blue Serenity is one of the Pantone Colors of the year and my choice for this Mani Monday.  
I think I said this before but even though  I am a seasoned teacher I find myself working incredibly hard this fall.  I pride myself on being able to adapt to change and if you've been reading this blog you know change is a common theme for us.  I think I am doing ok and still able to provide meaningful lessons but they come at a cost... I have no time for myself.  
This weekend I had a pile to grade but I put it aside and took my boys for an early morning beach walk, 20 minute massage and binge watched The Knick.  

Have you seen it? It's like ER but at the turn of the 20th century.  I love anything during that time period and this show does not disappoint.
How is your fall going?  It is my favorite season and before it dissappears I am forcing myself to stop and enjoy it, even if it means 4 am mornings for lesson planning.  
How do you make time for it all?
