I have been married for 40 years, to my best friend. We have two beautiful children and two cats, Sam cat who is 18 and Bessie who is 5. Moved to Montana in 1974 from New Jersey and have never looked back. I am newly retired from working at an Alternative High School and I am going to miss the staff and students so much, but I am ready for the next chapter! I use my blog as a secondary journal, to keep a record of the events in my life.
Oooo, what a chair, if I could have one chair, this would be it!

End of Summer / Back to School!
Not weather wise, that is still going strong and warm (but the mornings are very chill and lovely). But my summer is coming to a close as I start back to work tomorrow. For those who don't remember, I am a Head Cook/Chief Cook and Bottle Washer/Lunch Lady or Nurturer of Spirit and Stomach (at an Alternative H.S.) I do not mind going back in the least, in fact ever since I stepped into my kitchen on Friday, I have had exciting little shocks running thru my system. I spent part of Saturday making new signs, creating bulletins and fine tuning my master plan. My kitchen and lunch room have been decorated and look fabulous! All that is needed is food and that arrives tomorrow and then children on Tuesday. 50 new teenagers who will look askance at me, wondering who is this colorfully dressed lady and can she really learn all our names in just a couple of days? And then my "old" kids, with huge smiles and lots of hugs. I am so blessed to have such an occupation. One that makes me feel like I am making a difference to some kids that life has pretty much crapped on. At least when they are with me, they can feel safe and cared for and loved. And get good food too! :) Okay, time to pack my aprons and polish up my white shoes. It's showtime!Always, Kit
The two pics on the right were made by students for the yearbook. I just love them!
