Yesterday was cold.
Today is snowy.
Yesterday I was busy: driving on back-country roads and working with teachers.
Today I am moving slowly: staying at home and playing with Ari.
Yesterday I ate in a hurry: turkey sandwich, yellow peppers, Sumo orange, and trail mix.
Today I had a leisurely meal: breakfast tacos made with spinach, eggs, queso fresco, and hot sauce.
Yesterday I debriefed classroom visits and talked about minilessons.
Today I’m reading board books again and again and again.
Yesterday was good.
Today is good.

I love it – it is all about the little things!
Sounds like a perfect balance. Two good days.
Ah, the balance of life. I must be hungry, as my mouth waters as I read BOTH meals. I hope the again and again and again is with a book you don’t despise!
I’ve read Bear on a Bike 15+ times alone. (There are others I’ve read multiple times today, but that is the most asked for repeat-read.)
Simple slice yet packed with appreciation for your work and your family. Definitely poem-ish! Thanks for sharing!
Lovely balance. My favourite line: reading board books again and again and again. It is a long long time ago when I did that. Mimm is already 13.
How is Mimm already a teenager?!!?
Lovely, simple language for a complex concept – balance. I am so glad that I am getting the chance to read those board books again – now with my grandchildren.
Board books are lovely to share with a sweet baby on your lap!
Our daily lives 😊
Love the seesaw of your writing! Both days fill a need and leave you with contentment.
Lovely to mix it up and then be grateful!
I love the comparison format! Fun to read, and such a great way to show us the different delights in your life! Saving this to try sometime! 🙂
Love the mix. Love the minimalist style. Truly, our daily lives.
Hi! I figured it out! I am a blogger…Ha. Anyways, I am glad yesterday was good for you. I went for a walk today and allowed the sun to shine on my face. I found a moment of silence.
