Shout out Yellow Deli

Today we celebrated the approaching end of the school year by having a delicious lunch at the Yellow Deli in Vista.  It was a perfect way to relax after a very nice morning.  This year, we had the opportunity to give the students in our department an outstanding student award.  So I printed up as many certificates as each teacher chose, with no restrictions on how many students that they could choose to honor.  In this way, I felt that everyone felt good about it.  Of course, I wish I could give a special moment to each and every one, but alas… sometimes you can’t do that.  It was good to see our students honored right along with every one.  So, I liked today a lot.  

With the passing of each school year comes a reminder that I am truly blessed to a teacher.  Who else gets to come to love over 150 new young friends every year?  

And some of my colleagues are so refreshing to work with! They are a class act and really get it!   🙂  It has been my pleasure to work with you!

Here’s a shout out to Yellow Deli, the best little restaurant in town with organic food, an amazing building that is a work of art in itself, and the sweetest garden terrace in Vista!   And here’s to me posting 3 days in a row.  Who’d da thunk it?  86 to go

I am so used to seeing lettuce leaves about 6-8 inches long, all cleaned up, and sprinkled with dew drops in the grocery store. Isn’t that the way you picture it? I thought that I would see how big lettuce … Continue reading

Dedicated to 90 days of Summer

I am re-dedicating myself to my Donna T’s Garden Blog today, on the first day of June! I hope that I can remember to post once a day for the entire summer!  There are so many beautiful sights and sounds at Lau Hala Canyon.  It is time to share a summer of memories, even thought the official first day of summer is June 21st.  I always thought that summer began on June 1. It stems from my childhood I guess.

I hope to share a photo a day! Here is a picture of the walkway to the back yard.  The surfboards are out and that is always a good sign.  So the garden is underway, the pond is stocked with young gold fish and water lilies are blooming, most of the lawn is green, and the gazebo is full of lady banks roses!  We are four days away from Graduation now and that REALLY means summer to me 🙂
