I spent the day nervous and it turned out not to be necessary.

Exercise:

I didn’t get up early this morning as the sun is still not rising until 7:58! I just assumed I’d only do one thing today, but amazingly I got out of work early enough that the sun was still up and I could get out for a run in daylight!!!😀😀. It felt great!! My Runkeeper program was driving me crazy though. It was telling me I was doing a 5:55 km, but I think it was just because a text came in as when I stopped, the program said I was doing a 6:07. Everything seems to affect this app:( and then my phone died so I couldn’t even get a picture of the beautiful, sunny day to show you! It was eight degrees when I was out running today:) Still it was so nice to be out in daylight with music and no rain!!!

I also went to athletic yoga again this week. It was even better than last week because I knew what to expect! It’s quite the workout for my arms and core so that’s great!! You get into a yoga position and then you do weights while holding the position. Some of them were quite the challenge!

Teaching:

I spent the day worrying about whether having to sit out five minutes of gym was going to set my behaviour boy off again, but it didn’t! I guess I worried all day for no reason😏.

We did printing, a friendship song, adding using a number line, computers, gym and brainstorming community jobs. One of the children told me this morning that that wasn’t a lot of work for the day. I’m glad they think that way!

Our math was fun today as we had turkey races along a number line. Roll the die and move that many spaces to the left while saying the addition equation. It was awesome to see them all having so much fun! One little guy came up to me after and said, “thanks for letting us play instead of doing math”. Yes! I have succeeded:)

It was a busy day at work as I was once again acting principal, but not a bad day. I am looking forward to the fact that tomorrow is Friday!

Tea:

I had David’s Tea Hot Chocolate tea and I didn’t drink any of it. I am not a fan of chocolate so this tea just wasn’t for me:(

Knitting:

This morning I sat down to do one square on my Entrelac Cowl and suddenly I looked up and it was time to go to work!! I do t know where the time went.

I wanted to work some more on my Cowl tonight, but I had to tidy my house as knit night is at my place tomorrow night. For a change I got stuff done that needed to be done- sweeping, cleaning, dishes, bathrooms, etc. I love having a clean house, unfortunately I like doing my hobbies more so it rarely happens. The place is always tidy, but not necessarily clean.🤣

Reading:

I’m still reading the same chick lit, All Out of Love by Lori Wilde . It’s taking forever because it hasn’t really grabbed me. I did read for the first half of my lunch hour this week and it was lovely! What a nice break to the day! I’ll have to keep it up and hopefully it will also help me get back on track for my Goodreads goal. Can you tell that being told I’m behind bothers me?😂

Well that’s it for me tonight!

Have fun!

  1. About Texas? 😂Most of us aren’t usually in cowboy hats and you probably know it so you can’t get into it.
    You always do so much. I’m glad it was a good day!

      1. Yup that’s the rule. I’m trying this year to read a “good for me” book between each trashy romance🤣

  2. Hot chocolate tea sounds like it could be good if done really well or bad if done poorly. Definitely an interesting type of tea!
    Don’t worry about being behind on your reading goal for the year! Some books are faster reads that others and it’s still January. You’ve got plenty of time to catch up 🙂

  3. I had chocolate tea at a tea house last year and it was surprisingly good. It had a faint chocolate scent and had a mild chocolate taste. I believe I drank it at home once years earlier and I hated it. Chocolate tea can taste nasty if it’s too strong I guess. I don’t care for vanilla tea either. I think I dislike that more than the chocolate.

  4. It sounds like you are enjoying that entrelac! Been thinking about you little guy. He is a great example of a child that needs a “fence.” Always pushing to see if the boundary holds and until it does he doesn’t feel secure enough to get to work. He pushed and you stood firm and now he feels safe and is ready to go. If the specialty teachers take that approach instead of calling in the main teachers, maybe? (It’s OK to tell me to butt out too!)

    1. I appreciate the thought! I question myself all the time!!! I like that analogy. I have spoken to the teachers involved and explained that they need to deal with him so that he understands that they are in charge!

      1. I definitely believe that children need expectations and boundaries- they feel safer and able to take risks that way. Well behaved children are the ones that don’t feel safe!

  5. Nice cover! (On the book :))
    You must be young cause no way would I be running, walking, or crawling outside if it was 8 degrees!!! 😉

  6. I’m not positive the place you’re getting your info, however great topic. I needs to spend some time finding out much more or working out more. Thanks for fantastic information I used to be looking for this information for my mission.

  7. Wow, fantastic weblog format! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you made running a blog look easy. The whole look of your web site is wonderful, as neatly as the content material!

  8. That sounds yummy…hot cocoa tea. I’ve had Chocolate Puerh by NUMI and I liked that. One of the TAZO teas I bought I’m not overly fond of – Glazed Lemon Loaf. I loved lemon pound cake but not as a drink. Would you want it?

    1. And OMGosh, I trained w/my husband in our garage gym last night. It was like interval training but I had to fake using a jump rope because I couldn’t use one properly and when I tried to hold steady the 45 lb bar (w/out weights) on my back to do squats, it was too heavy. My back is sore from dead lifts. He’s making me train tomorrow, LOL.

      1. Ooo he’s a task master!! I use free weights so they aren’t as heavy. A hot shower and then stretching might help the pain:)

      1. Let’s do it! Give me a bit of time to put together a nice package for you. Take your time. How do we give one another our 411? Are you Ravelry? I am Kepanie on there.

  9. I think this is the second post where I see you mention issues with Runkeeper app. Maybe you can try “Strava”, just a suggestion. I’ve been using Strava from June 2014 for cycling and walking and it’s been great so far. Never had any issues. And I don’t use any fancy gadget, just my phone.

  10. hello!,I really like your writing so so much! proportion we communicate more approximately your article on AOL? I require a specialist on this house to unravel my problem. Maybe that is you! Taking a look forward to look you.
