The Schoolhouse

Not Back to School Blog Hop
Our school room is nothing special.  In fact, it’s our everything room!!

The Schoolhouse is not only our homeschool room, but it’s also our guest room and my office.  The closet also serves as storage for my religion class items that I purchase myself and hubby’s wardrobe.  There’s a futon that our guests sleep on when they come visit.  It also serves as a relaxing spot for reading or other light work.  At each end of the futon are a set of drawers.  Those hold all our craft supplies and many of our paper products. 

There’s also 2 desks in there.  And yes, they match!!  There’s one for Miss K and one for me.  We have all our needs in each of our desks.  We have a large armoire that stores all our supplies.  It has all our paper, pens, tape, and lots of other materials.  The the narrowest wall, we have a small bookcase that holds all our school books.  She has one shelf and I have another.  It holds my teacher’s editions and photography books.  Her books, tablets, and binders are there as well.  Above the bookcase is our white board.  On top of the bookcase is all our dry erase markers, erasers, and stuff like that. 

Since it’s such a small room, we like to keep it tidy.  We can’t stand it when it gets dirty and cluttered.  There’s just not enough room in there for mess!!

That’s it!!  I’m sorry I don’t have any photos, but things are crazy busy as you all can imagine.  That’s the total sum of our school room.  It’s our little Schoolhouse and we love it!!

Remembering Elizabeth Taylor

Wednesday I got the sad news that Elizabeth Taylor died.  I was very sad and even had to cry for awhile.  I have finally come to my senses that she is happy now, she’s with her family and friends now up in heaven.  Elizabeth whom I call “Lizzie” was like a friend of mine.

She was my favorite actress and was the most beautiful.  To say I have a favorite film of hers is hard, but I think it is Giant. I like Giant because she plays a superb ranchers wife in racially hard times.  I really can see the chemistry in the movie between her and Rock Hudson.  My 2nd favorite performance from her would probably be Cat on A Hot Tin Roof. She plays Maggie the Cat so well I couldn’t see anyone else play the part. I think she should have won an award for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”.  In “Who’s Afraid of Virgina Woolf” she plays a wonderful part, that really went out of her comfort zone.  Now I know why she won that award.

She has a very sultry look to her.  When I watch Cleopatra or any of her other movies for that fact, she dares you to look away, but it’s impossible.  She put so much work into her movies that you don’t really feel as if she is acting.  She graces around the room like an angel.  I totally believe she should have won more than 2 awards.

What I most respect her for is her compassion for always being there for her children.  There are so many pictures of her with her children.  A lot of people say well “how can she be out with so many guys that she takes care of her children.”  I don’t know, but what from I can tell is that she LOVES her children.  I also love her for her AIDS humanitarian work.  She never gave up without a fight.  She had the courage to stand up for, what some people couldn’t talk about.

About a month ago I started a book called “Elizabeth”. It is a very good book and I recommend this book to anybody who is a fan of Elizabeth.  Anyways, back to it, I’m doing a book report on her.  I thought I should do a book report on her since she is my favorite actress and there is a lot to learn about her.   After all I am a huge fan of her and have over 700 pictures on my computer of her.

Here is my favorite quote from her:  “I don’t entirely approve of the things I’ve done, or am, or have been, but I’m me .  God knows I’m me.”  ~Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth, you are truly loved and God Bless you!!

RIP Lizzie!

You made the world a more beautiful place.
