Simple Lives Thursday

Hey everybody!
Boy it's been a crazy week.  It's been LONG and SLOW and full of grading.  I'm still trying to keep my head above water, so today I'm just going to share a few photos of what I've been up to around the house and put up the linky for the blog hop that I host every week about keeping things simple.
The weather has been mixed recently, but there have most certainly been days of full sun.  Once a week, I drive to West Branch, Iowa, (yes, the birthplace of Herbert Hoover!) to do some tutoring.  The drive is short and within a few minutes I'm out of the city and into the open fields of Iowa.  I love it out here.

DSC01565Now that you've soaked in a little Iowa countryside, it's time for the blog hop!  Each week, these ladies and I host the hop:
