Looking back...

Slice of Life Challenge
Please join the challenge over at Two Writing Teachers!

It snowed on March 25th. Oh, it made me mad! I overheard someone say, "It snowed on this day last year." I thought, "No it didn't! That's silly. We barely had any snow last year and I know I'd remember that!" 

This is what led me to look back. 

I grabbed an notebook 

and brought it to school with me
...and reread. 
Here are some past late March 
or early April entries 
from my notebooks...
Some entries are joy-filled, 
some ordinary, 

some sad to look back on...
But that's how life is...


  1. Your notebooks are so expressive. Thanks for giving us a little peek inside. It is good to reflect and go back to see where you've been and where you are. You have been a writer for a long time! Celebrate!

  2. I think it's wonderful that you have these notebooks to look back on. I love the honesty in the pages, and the colours. You have inspired me to be more of a regular notebook keeper, even if it is a few words.


  3. Oh Michelle, thank you for sharing your notebooks. What keepsakes.

    My eyes teared up...

    Home for the second day. Blizzard yesterday. Roads are still dangerous today.

  4. Thanks for the peek inside your notebooks. I know you have talked a lot about these and it is wonderful for you to open them up to us. I am sure it is fun to go back reread your life and see how these decisions and experiences have shaped who you are today!

  5. Wonderful notebooks - you must have had such a time rambling through memories, Michelle.

  6. I love looking at other people's notebooks! They are always much more interesting than mine! Yours are extra special! You have your whole history written in these pages. Truly special!

  7. Wow! I don't have any notebooks from the past like that! I really need to start saving mine. I do now, but most of my thoughts are jotted on a computer. Much easier to save, but not as colorful or expressive as the pen. Spring MUST be around the corner. It rained here all day.


Please share your thoughts. I love comments!
