A Breath of Fresh Air

A fun activity that I'm doing with my students this quarter is that each day I choose an idiom of the English language that my ESL students (and most of my MKs, usually) aren't familiar with.  I explain it and we try to use it as many times during the day as we can.  Today we learned "a breath of fresh air" (refreshing; it makes you feel better; a change that feels good )

I had Monday and Tuesday off of school, which was a breath of fresh air for me.  I swam, hung out, had lunch with a friend, and went shopping at a local vegetable market where I got about three pounds of carrots for about 14 cents.

I grated six cups of carrots yesterday, and from them I made Morning Glory Muffins!  I also froze some grated carrot so that I can make more later, and I still have more than enough carrots to take to school every day this week.  Ahh!
May this short post with a food picture be a breath of fresh air for you blog-readers who have put up with my long posts about cultural adaptation and imperfections lately.  :)


  1. Are you kidding me? All of your blog posts are a breath of fresh air.
    I think I check almost everyday hoping for a new post so I can know what's going on in your life.

  2. Awww... your comment just made my day! I miss you very much, friend. Expect a letter dentro de poco.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
