Happy Black Friday

 OK, under the category of random and miscellaneous - here we go!

Do you notice the little red thing inside this pencil sharpener?

 Yes, that's an eraser. Because somebody didn't think that there was any reason that the teacher would say, "Don't sharpen pencils shorter than your little finger!" So the sharpener kept sharpening and sharpening, and I looked over, and one of my sweeties was standing there looking perplexed {because she wasn't the one who did it!}. So I went to unplug it, and I heard another {at this moment not so sweet} sweetie saying "It was so noisy anyway." Like the whole reason he stuck this too small pencil in there was to break the sharpener so we wouldn't have to use that noisy sharpener any more. Isn't life fun in the 2nd grade mind?

Isn't this too cute?
I totally honored some {now anonymous} blogger by copy-catting this. I freehand cut out the turkey {I know! I'm amazed, too!}. Then I gave everybody a feather to decorate as homework. Everybody but two did their homework, and then I {the super nice teacher that I am} gave them time in class to work on it. {And still one didn't finish.} 

And here's my new toy:

 As a present for taking care of my sweet bubby, he bought me this!! {What a sweetie - and whatever, I think he just wanted an excuse to buy this for me! Cuz he likes to do that sort of thing.} And happy day, they are having a sale on designs, so I'm heading over there {online, of course!} soon. 

Have a Happy Black Friday - whatever you do!  


  1. I am so glad your little sweetie could take care of that dreadfully noisy pencil sharpener for you... OH my. I am like a warden with my sharpener. I don't let the kids near it. Ha! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Your turkey is precious!

    1. Haha, I have one on my desk that is totally off limited to anyone shorter than me!
      And yes, I was pretty happy with that turkey.

    2. limits, limits - not limited! Ack!

  2. I honestly don't know what your new toy does, but it must be cool. Enjoy!

    1. Oh, my new toy is too cool. It is a personal die cut machine. It will cut out different shapes - and resize them. And it will cute out letters. I haven't had enough time to really play with it - but I've had fun with what I've done. I cut out tags for our Christmas packages. Fun, Fun, Fun.

  3. I have an old electric sharpener that the kids use. It doesn't work very well anymore but they will still go over and try to sharpen pencils. It would drive me crazy trying to use it, but they don't seem to care. ;P

    I keep seeing the Silloutes, but I wasn't sure what they were for either, I was glad Tammy asked! lol
