300+ Followers Celebration at Carol's Garden!

My TpT store had been hovering at 299 followers for awhile. I kept hoping for that magic "300" to appear, when I noticed the number had skipped to 301! Thank you to all my wonderful followers!

300+ Followers Celebration!

As my way of showing some appreciation for my fabulous followers, I will be posting one flash freebie in my store each day. It might be in the morning, or it might be in the afternoon, but each freebie will be posted until at least midnight EST on the day it is posted.

Since this blog has a severe time lag, I suggest you follow my Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest updates. I will post a picture of each item right after I post it as free in my TpT store. Just don't delay! There will be one flash freebie each day for seven days, and the first one has already been posted! Once these flash freebies go back to their regular price, that's it, until the next one.

I hope you enjoy these freebies! Thank you all so much, and have a wonderful week!

April Currently with Carol's Teaching Garden!

I love joining up with Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the monthly Currently!

April Currently
I love this music video from set to the tune of "Happy" by . As an animal lover I enjoy seeing these dogs (and cat!) smile and leap for joy during a beach outing. Plus, the music is so catchy! I know it never fails to make me smile! :)

Whenever I sit on the couch in the evenings, our cat Boots decides it's time to make my lap his home. I often type one-handed, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Kitty comfort after a long day makes my whole body relax.

Now that it's April, and Spring, my thoughts turn naturally to Summer! Our last day at school will be on the 22nd of May, which will be NEXT MONTH! Whoa! I can hardly believe it! There's so much to do between now and then!

That's why I need a Swedish massage, the more intense the better. My back and neck muscles are killing me from grading papers and typing on the computer late at night.

Swedish Heavenly Massage ... Ahhh!
With the lovely weather comes the opportunity to wear sandals, and my feet just aren't ready. My toes especially need a pretty manicure before I can show them in public.

I Take My Daughter with Me When I Get Pedicures, but She Would Never Get a Flower!

Although my TpT store name is Carol's Garden, if I had it to do all over again, I would name it Carol's Teaching Garden. I love to garden in my own yard, but I also think of my students as my "garden." Each child grow and develops at different rates, but with the nurturing which a gardener/teacher provides, they can grow stronger and more beautiful naturally.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my currently! Please take a moment to leave a comment, then take a look at some of the other posts at Farley's linky.

Thanks for stopping by! "See" you again soon!
