It just seemed to be a very busy day, though that might have been just because I had no downtime after work. I think as I sit here writing this that this might be the first time I have sat down today!


I did a short thirty minute run this morning though it was still slow and painful. I wonder how long my quads are going to make me pay for??!

It was nice to get out before it was hot or busy. I’m back to looking forward to being able to run in the mornings!


It just seemed like I was always in motion today!! My co teacher was away so that always throws me off a bit. We hid our rocks today and many have already been found. It was neat to see the older kids make a big deal out of it for the little guys. We played outside, went to music, watched four horrible shadow puppet plays and then made kites for ADST this week. This was our last session and it’s been really cool to see the children working on these projects. So many different solutions!


After school I had to go directly for a massage. My RMT suggested I don’t use a third of my weight in weights again🤣. I’m just hoping the massage will help!!!


I had to put a picture of this dress in that a grandma made for a birthday present, isn’t it adorable!!!

I didn’t get anything done on my rug today because of my evening commitment that went longer than normal, but I did start another cap to use up the last of three skeins:)


It was quick home and then back out for a retirement party for our secretary. It was nice to see so many people and the food was way too good! I think I may have scarred a few of my co-workers with how sick I got last week as they were very concerned about what I was ordering. It’s nice to work with people who are also friends!

I really liked the looks of this charcuterie board but there was just too much cheese to make it work.

Instead I had steelhead salmon curry. It was super yummy and though I didn’t plan to eat it all I did and now I’m stuffed!


I’ve had reports that people have to go looking for my posts, that they no longer get an email alert about them. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I finally had two minutes to go on my computer at work and found a ton of tags in my spam folder. I’m sorry, I will get to them ASAP now that I know they are there!!

Well sitting down was nice, but I’m going to go lay down and let my eyes close.

Have fun!

  1. I’ve had a lot in my spam folder lately as someone has been targeting me by responding to each post and every comment with a single word, so it could be them as you have so many.

  2. glad to hear you had a good day and that you were able to find something to eat at this restaurant that won’t make you sick.

    were any of the kids able to get their kites to fly?

    I have also had a ton of spam, but it has been true spam… comments that have nothing to do with the post or with just the word “what” on it. so annoying!

    1. I had a ton of those “what” comments too, so annoying!!!
      A few of the kids got them off the ground but not many thought of long strings to hold🤣

  3. I get such strange spam and messages in my folders that I thought some body was sending a message to someone through my blog. Maybe I read too many spy novels! Great outdoor space for the kids.

  4. Making kites sounds like a fun end of the year activity for the kids. Hopefully some of them actually flew haha.
    That was so sweet of your coworkers to be concerned about what you were ordering! The charcuterie board looks delicious too, even though you didn’t eat it.

    1. It was a lot of fun to make the kites! Have to remember that for next year again! A few got off the ground but they didn’t put long strings on them.
      Yes my coworkers are super sweet! I’m going to have to make myself a charcuterie board as it looked so good!

      1. You should write it down somewhere or put a reminder in your phone to remember!
        You should! Grab some meats and dairy free cheese to enjoy. I do it sometimes on nights when Alex is working late and I don’t really feel like cooking.

      2. You’re right! I’d better start making notes for next year:)
        I have to admit I have snack meals all the time, but don’t make them look that pretty

      3. Oh mine never look that pretty lol. The one time it looked pretty was because I was lazy and just used my wood cutting board as my plate instead of an actual plate!

  5. I’ve had this problem with WordPress as well… I don’t know if there’s a solution. It’s been super buggy in general lately. 😕
    That dress is adorable, That little girl is lucky to have such a cool grandmother! and that food looks AMAZING!!

    1. Yes that little girl has so many cute dresses! I should have taken other pictures too!
      The food was SOOOO good! I never think to make myself curry at home.

  6. I hope you are nearing the end of school AJ. The charcuterie board is amazing looking – never have seen anything like that before and I like the way it displayed the food. What was in the white dish in the foreground of the photo – some type of pickled eggs, or peppers?
