A day with some success in it:)
I started my day with the half hour on my new rug square. It was so gray outside I just wanted to stay here all day!!! I at least got the square started.
Well I had two successes today:). The first was the gym game I made up that the kids liked and it had them running the whole time!
The second was this afternoon. We put five primary classes together in the gym with popsicle sticks and plasticine. The students had to work in mixed gender and mixed class pairs. They had to build something with a small amount of plasticine and popsicle sticks. I have to admit all of us teachers were a little worried it would be chaos, but it went amazingly!!!
Our plan is to do this each Monday afternoon but the activity will change each Monday.
We also had staff meeting which I survived, but ate way too many nachos!
I also got three report cards written today, so I now only have six left🎊🎉
After nachos and Rice Krispie squares, I really didn’t feel like running, but the mission was 7km. I told myself I just had to run a bit because I didn’t want to have to be out for more than an hour to get those 7kms done! I got going and then told myself I could walk each time Spotify had a commercial, unfortunately Spotify only has a commercial every twenty minutes and by then I was already in the running mode. I got 7.3km done 🎉🎊. I’ve already ran more this week than I did the whole of last week! It also put me in first place on my Squad Runner team. That has never happened before and it won’t last long, but it was fun to see!
I finished my book from the weekend.
I loved the lead up of this book as it made me giggle out loud, however the relationship was very shallow. The couple never talked or had dates, just sex. Then when problems occur, of course they don’t know each other, but suddenly everything is worked out. It was cute, but I think there’s a fine line between too much thinking in a romance novel and not enough and this landed on the not enough side.
I casted on for the Wee Speedy 2 today. It won’t take long so it will be a nice break from my last sweater project! Hopefully I’ll have a cute finished baby sweater to show you soon!
I did wear the sweater I just finished to work today and got our secretary to grab a picture of me.
This sweater pattern was made from the pattern Sea Cucumber by Linda Allegra, a free pattern on Ravelry. I changed it slightly. My sweater used only one strand of yarn instead of two, was done on size 5mm needles rather than 6mm and I changed the underarm pattern. There was supposed to be a section under the arm that was cross stitch, yarn overs, cross stitch. I took out the yarn overs as I didn’t like how open it was. I’m happy with how it turned out though:)
Ok that’s it for me today.
