June Toon 2020 Day 2: Groundskeeper Willie ("The Simpsons") "Bonjour-r-r-r-r, ya cheese-eatin' surrender monkeys!" "There's narry an animal alive that can outrun a greased Scotsman." "Ya used me, Skinner! Ya used me!" So many quotable moments with this guy. Love it. 🤣
I have been MIA today
I woke at 5:40am to get in my 57mins workout before having to head into work
Wow that triple AAA is a good one!!! I am so much stronger then what I was last month. Some of the moves still get me in the right places. But I flew through that one and I felt great.
I had to head into work this morning to help out with some stuff.
I didn’t prep for being there as long as I was and my nutrition has been off. I did how ever take my shake with me. But I was starving when I got home had a piece of chocolate before eating my salad with eggs feta lettuce cucumber and dressing. It went down so fast I just about missed my picture
Now I’m outside in a jacket with my pups and oh my it is starting to rain!!!!! A bit chilly here now so we have moved indoors I guess I’ll warm up and catch up on some dishes and inside chores then.
Got some chores done this afternoon after warming up. Then I cut up some potatoes to make fries to go with are fresh walleye. What a great dinner.
I also just committed to no weekday drinks. I need this!!! I still want to enjoy my summer but need some accountability on this thank you @shaekaefitness for committing to this with me❤️. We will crush this together girl #nevermissamonday#mylife#fitness#custodian#igotthis#icandoit#iamstrongerthenlastmonth#lovingmylife#goalstogether#camping#backcountrycamping#summer#provincalparksneedtoopen#feelinggood

📚MENTOR TEXT MONDAY!
Night Job by Karen Hesse and G. Brian Karas should be in every classroom library! It tells the story of a boy who accompanies his father, a school custodian, to work on Friday nights. The descriptive words and charming pictures outline the hard work custodians put in to make sure our schools are clean and tidy.
In Night Job, the author engages the reader through VIVID VERBS and SENSORY LANGUAGE, while the illustrations provide a STORY MAP of their own. This would be a wonderful mentor text as you begin personal narrative writing next year. It will also prompt thoughtful discussions about character traits, theme, and life in a single parent family.
Throwback to 5 months ago when this was painted on a self created art residency in Guatemala with the amazing @kinmx
Seems since then the problems that we battle with as a global community day to day have met boiling point... Strength to those battling on the front lines in all respects to make this shared world a better place for our children.... 🌍🌎💗 "If we dont take action now, we'll settle for nothing later" - Zach de la Rocha
Shouldn’t we be doing this in the US as well? Sadly, if we did, I’m sure many helicopter parents would be outraged that their child had to physical labor and decry it as child labor, and not a learning experience.
But what do I know? I have cats. 😻 #kids#elementary#japan#janitor#custodian
There are moments in life you meet an extraordinary person with an extraordinary life. This is the case with Laurel Cooper I had the privilege to meet in 2015 in Kalgoorlie - WA.
"Today is National Sorry Day. Reconciliation Week runs from 27 May to 3 June, these dates commemorate two significant milestones in the Reconciliation journey - the 1967 Referendum, and the High Court decision in Mabo.
Reconciliation Week is a time for us to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to reconciliation in our communities. Significantly, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Bridge Walk for Reconciliation, when people came together to walk across the nation to show support for a more reconciled Australia.
This year’s theme, In This Together, Reconciliation Australia is encouraging everyone on the first day of National Reconciliation Week to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land that they are on via social media.

Still chipping away at the custodes, it's a slow process just doing the little spot highlights on the armour theres so many points. While everyone waits, here's the second head I've painted up for them.
He also has a yavin...IV tattoo 😅
I really enjoy painting faces, with my custodes the majority of the painting is actually contrast paints on the armour as well, looking forward to posting some finished shots
Day 30/366 of my 2020 happiness project: the custodians, the secretaries, and the other helpers in my life *
This morning went all wrong. Documents I urgently needed were lost, equipment wasn’t working, and seriously worst of all...I spilled my breakfast on the new carpeting. I was upset about the carpeting, but I was equally upset that I didn’t have my delicious breakfast. Raspberries, blackberries, milk, and Chia seeds everywhere! It ran down INto my most expensive boots, onto my new coat, and all over important documents. It then fell onto the brand new carpeting and as I tried to get it off, I realized I was grinding the worst possible thing into the school’s new carpeting. Long story short, I kept my cool and found helpers that call themselves a custodian, a secretary, and a teacher. They saved the day, when I was doing absolutely nothing right. They didn’t make me feel bad and they assured me that it was okay, so on this 30th day of January, I am most grateful for the helpers. *
“Herbert Perkinson never received a high school diploma. After five years as a custodian at Woodland Middle School, he was being considered for the position of head janitor, but he needed a high school diploma or GED to qualify. "It broke my heart and his that we couldn't offer him the position at the time," principal Michael Blankenship told WXIA.
All that changed after Blankenship encouraged him to take classes to earn his GED. His daughter helped him study. He got the GED and the new job. "I never would have tried to get it, but he wanted me to take this position," Perkinson said of Blankenship.
The school honored Perkinson for his accomplishments, and he received a standing ovation as the principal announced his new position.” Via @WTHR
