Currently Reading: The Poison Diariesby Maryrose Wood
The last day of school was on Friday, which means that I’m officially on summer vacation now. It was a really emotional day for me. Over the course of the semester, I grew genuinely attached to these kids, so saying goodbye to them was really hard for me, and I completely lost it when some of them asked me if I was coming back to teach at the school next year.
I pretty much have the best students ever 🙂
Anyway, I haven’t really been up to much. I spent the weekend sitting around in my pajamas marathoning Disney movies and Scandal, in between applying for jobs.
Also, cooking. Which I feel like I’m going to be doing a lot more of, because these apple cinnamon pork chops I made Saturday night turned out totally awesome:
So, I guess it’s time to start digging through all those recipes I’ve pinned and actually use them. I’m realizing more and more that I’m actually a pretty decent cook when I’m not being lazy about it!
And in case anyone was wondering, the recipe I used is here. It’s really easy – I had most of the ingredients lying around, so I didn’t have to go out and buy anything. I made it without the nutmeg and pecans, since I didn’t feel like making a trip to the store specifically for those, but it still tasted great without them!
As far as my summer reading goes, I set a goal of 25 books. So far, I’ve read 8, although I’m almost done with The Poison Diaries. The library’s summer reading program ends August 31, so I guess I’m doing pretty well at keeping on pace so far 🙂
What fun summer plans do you have?
