  1. Oh, I love office supplies. I tend to collect them. In fact I am under self-imposed orders to clear out the closet and rid myself of many of them here in upcoming weeks. Yikes.

  2. Tons of office supplies are being hoarded here, too, and there is a big new box of Crayola crayons with new colors at Walmart that is calling my name. I also have far more journals than I will probably ever fill, but I keep buying them whenever I find a pretty one.

    I bet you are an awesome teacher. I would have liked to have been in your class when I was a student.

  3. Oh, by the way...I went to look at your 2017 reading list (I always need more suggestions of what to read) and saw that you are reading the Maine Clambake series of cozy mysteries, too. I've enjoyed them all, but haven't read the latest one yet. They are fun and simple to read...sometimes your brain just wants to unwind and have fun, too.

  4. Stuffies!! Someone else calls them stuffies! Our house was full of them when my kids were growing up.

    I'll have to examine your reading list more closely. There isn't one that we have both read (though I did read "Rebecca" years ago). I also like your format. This is mine, if you're interested: http://www.funnytheworld.com/2017Books.htm

  5. Can I geek out with you, too? I love pens and post its. I've got every color of pencil that is made, though, per se, that isn't office supplies. Neither is all that duct tape in colors. I have to remember to DO some things with it all!
    thanks for the link to your read book list! I should get better at Goodreads.... meep

  6. When was your birthday? I hate that I missed it! Hope it was happy, Miss Kwiz.

  7. Not stressed but wondering: what does a BLURRY mood mean?
