Hi, How'dy, How are ya?

Welcome to "The Country Schoolmarm"! Get yourself a cup of coffee (I take mine strong with vanilla creamer), grab a seat, and chat a while! Isn't that what country friends do? Now, all we need is a porch...

Do I have to???

     Awww... It's just one of those Mondays. I think I have a case of the Mondays... Can someone write me a note for school? You really need to stay in bed and snuggle with puppies to feel better. So, I think I need to do that. What? No note for me? But look! How do you get up when you are snugly like this...

Or this...

     You're right. I need to go to school. I would miss my students. But truly! It's 30 degrees outside and my dogs are snoring! Okay. Coffee is another remedy. I'm up!

     Hubby and I stopped by the small man-made lake down the road from my school and church. It is 5 minutes away. Sometimes, I drive down here to grade papers when the weather is nice...

     Isn't it lovely? This is where I park. We parked here too and soaked in God's majestic display. And, I had a latte. Vanilla. Hot. 

     There is a farmhouse at the bottom of it from when they flooded the valley a long time ago. If the water is low (it is NOT right now due to the rains we had earlier in the month), and you kayak toward the middle, you can paddle over the tops of old evergreens. 

     Enjoy your day, dear friends! Warm hugs to you! Time to change from "Heather on the Couch" to "Mrs. Wise". 

Heather, the Marm

P. S. There's still time to write me a note...


  1. Have a wonderful day Teach!
    I'll write ya a note anytime you wanna play hookie with me. :)
    I think they are giving out flu shots for free with a plate purchase at the Reuzit shop. hehe
    Oh my snuggle pups. :)
    Woolie Hugs

  2. Hi Heather, sweet pup...love the lake so beautiful........I did email you to thank you for the pin keep and goodies, loved it all, hope you received it, Thanks Francine.

  3. While the lake is beautiful, I always find it sad to think of the valleys being flooded...how strange to paddle over the tops of a once thriving forest. Glad you enjoyed your day!

  4. heather those furry babies will keep everything warm til you get back!!! I would not of wanted to leave the lake!!! OLM

  5. Aww sweet pup :) I am loving all the sweet pictures..
    Sending you warm hugs x

  6. You certainly have a beautiful lake close by! And your puppies are sweet.

  7. I had a case of the Monday's today too! It was a cool rainy day here. Sure made it tough to get moving! Hope you had a great day!

  8. I would go there to grade papers too. What a pretty place. I am with you, having all of those snoozing dogs around would make me want to climb right back in too.
    It made me sleepy just looking. I hope you had a lovely Monday.
    I hope you have a nice week too.
