I thought about staying home today, but for some reason really wanted to spend the day with my students. Thankfully, it was a much better day!
I woke up this morning with my duvet in a big pile in the middle of my bed. I’m not sure how I accomplished this while sleeping!
I spent a lovely half hour reading my Bookclub book and actually managed to finish it this evening. The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel was a good read. It was not a difficult read and had an excellent pace. The chapters are short and lead you through the book well. It is an interesting mix of research on related topics and the story of Chris Knight’s time in the Maine woods. I can’t even imagine that life, but it was interesting to read about. The book actually has some very interesting and deep things to say about our modern life and society. I’d recommend it to people who enjoy non fiction or learning about interesting people leading alternative lifestyles.
Today, thankfully went much better, and there were no injuries:)
We accomplished a lot which made me feel better. We finally got our turkey poem read, our Friday journals written ( I now know exactly which little girl pays the most attention), another sheet on patterning done, our math turkey game played, and a robot created with our buddies.
Out of the whole day, doing these robots with our buddies was the most exhausting! Lyndsay and I thought it was a great idea to put our kids together for STEM and read The Wild Robot, but so far it has been very painful. We’re going to persevere though and hope it improves.
After school I got a few more items off my to-do list while I watched Hallmark’s Pumpkin Pie Wars. It was a super cute movie, though I may be biased because it is based around two bakeries and a pumpkin pie contest. I thought the feud was a little overdone, but it didn’t ruin the movie for me:)
I did finally get a massage this evening and it was lovely. I booked the next one with her, only to find out they are moving to the next city over. It would only be about a fifteen minute drive, but my whole goal was to get in somewhere I could walk to. I guess I’ll go to her until they move and then make a decision.
I spent a little time this evening knitting on the purple bag. It’s not for me and is super boring so I have to admit I’m not very motivated.
Well, I’m off to bed as I’m thinking of running a very far distance in the morning!
