Time to Get Up and Play the Friday Five

Where I am it is dark, and it is cold, and it is snowing. I really wanted to stay in bed with the electric blanket cranked this morning. Share five things that made getting out of bed worthwhile for you today!

  1. Good coffee
  2. I have reading, writing, and research to do today that excites me.
  3. I will be judging at our high schools’ speech invitational tonight and tomorrow.  I am energized by watching young people speaking about current events and the issues about which they care intensely.  I also love to watch them do dramatic and humorous interpretations.
  4. There are puzzles waiting to be solved in the newspaper.
  5. The winter wonderland outside is beautiful – but I could use some sunshine.

Wishing any and all of you who visit a blessed day+

    Oh, the speech contest would be a joy for me too. Glad you have this opportunity. Something very energizing about young people who are engaged in culture, politics, etc. Enjoy your day! And I love the new blog! I might have to switch to wordpress….sigh.

    I judge individual events, which includes domestic and foreign extemporaneous speaking, original oratory, oratorical interp, duo acting, drama and humor. Being that it is a two day tournament with seven-eight rounds total, I will get to judge nearly all of these once.
    I competed when I was in junior high and high school and loved, loved, loved it!
