My Giant Head

My Giant Head

What a busy week I have had!  Starting last Monday I had a choral booster meeting, Thursday a gifted parent meeting, Friday I went to Blue Ridge, Georgia for a girlfriend weekend, Saturday I went to Hampton for a choral retreat at Camp Calvin, Saturday night I went back to Blue Ridge, Sunday I came home from Blue Ridge, Monday I went to Dawsonville, Tuesday I went shopping locally and planned another girly trip via conference call, and here I am tonight just getting back from Davis’ voice lesson.  Whew!

Blue Ridge, Georgia. (Taken from the internet.  Sorry, that I don’t know who to give a photo credit for this picture.)


Davis at Camp Calvin with the high school chorus. Note the squeeze cheese.  Tradition dictates the making of artistic crackers with aerosol cheese.

Dawsonville LeCreuset.  I was hunting down the last few pieces of my discontinued color.

I wanted to update you on my recipe contest.  My school system has placed an announcement on our county website so if you have absolutely nothing better to do you can look at my giant head on your computer at this website.  The picture will scroll on by if you stay on the site long enough.  FCBOE WEBSITE  Davis was at school today and the site was up on his teacher’s computer and he was quite startled to see me buzz by.  He then announced, “There’s my mom.”  They probably didn’t believe him because he is quite the clown but he got a good chuckle out of it anyway.

And if you didn’t get enough of my big giant head, you can see it again here at the Fayette Citizen Newspaper site.  My school system sent it into the paper.  The Citizen is where I heard about the contest so they were happy to run the article.  FAYETTE CITIZEN  In case the link doesn’t work it is under the Community tab and then under the Names and Faces tab.

The picture they used was from my name tag.  I remember about 4 years ago we had to get our name tags redone.  My friend Kathy and I primped for about thirty minutes in the school’s teacher’s lounge beforehand.  You would have thought we were getting ready for an 80’s glamour shot. I even wore pearls.  Crackin’ me up.  HOWEVER…I’m glad I did now since it is being used!!!

In case you didn’t click on the links above, here is the aforementioned glamour badge photo. I wouldn’t want you to miss it. Ha!

Looking forward to getting back to a less hectic schedule, but not too boring.  I like being busy, just not crazy busy.

    What’s your discontinued used color? One of mine is being discontinued. It’s Cassis.

      My color is Ocean. They are discontinuing it in the LeCreuset outlets but Williams Sonoma still has some for a while at full price. I’ll be watching those sales, too.

        I’m also getting Soleil but it is a new color. It just looks pretty with the Ocean since it is getting harder to find. The lady in the store said that she works there just to buy the pans. Most of her salary goes right back to the store. She is currently remodeling her kitchen to display her LeCreuset. I want a tagine next. Anyone have one to report?

    I don’t have a tangine, but they had one in Cassis at the Outlets of Atlanta. We got a wok and some more utensils.
