I don’t know what I was expecting today, but it wasn’t really what I got.

Teaching:

I met up with some fellow colleagues for my ProD today. It was incredibly productive and informative. This is the second time I’ve done this and I think these might be the two best ProD days I have had in several years. I learn so much from colleagues and we also had some awesome books available today too.

Of course, at times it was slightly tough to concentrate as we were watching snow fall fast and furiously!

To Dos:

I knocked a couple of things off my monthly to do list by getting my RRSP and TFSA contributions made. I also knocked things off by giving up hosting Bookclub on Sunday to my friend Michelle. They want to be able to watch the oscars🤣

Knitting:

I know I promised you pictures of the pink sweater the other day, well it still doesn’t have buttons and neither does the second one I have made, but you get to see them both.

The pattern is EVIE, free on Ravelry or you can find it on the website, Marianna’s Lazy Daisy Days. I believe this is the second pattern I’ve made of hers and I love how at the end you only have to weave in two ends! I’m even wondering how this would look made big for me:) I am happy with how both turned out and I hope to find some cute buttons! I was going to run over this afternoon when the sun was out (can you say crazy weather?), but I got a better offer.

Exercise:

The plan had been to workout and then go for lunch with Lyndsay after ProD, but then we had more people join us so that idea went out the window. We did go for lunch at Freshii but I ended up doing a butt blaster workout at home.

It was 3 sets of 20 reps of the following:

Right donkey kick, right fire hydrant, left donkey kick, left fire hydrant, right glut bridge, right glue bridge.

I also added 50 crunches and 50 weighted leg drops, 100 banded squats and 100 plow squats to this.

I was just trying to kick my butt out the door for a run when Lyndsay texted to ask if I wanted to meet her at the gym. With the slushy sidewalks, I took her up on this offer and did 33 minute run on the treadmill. It wasn’t as bad as it normally is as I had someone to talk to and it finished my Squad Runner mission for me:)

I stopped in for some veggies and fruit on the way home and also stopped at the library to download the books that came in.

I’d better go start reading so I can get all these books done!

Have fun!

  1. Those little sweaters are just adorable! This weather is so bizarre. We are supposed to reach 30 today!!!! Then back to the deep freeze and more snow. I must get out and about today and do errands, have to deliver the borrowed machine, take the other to the shop, buy a spiral for my newest student, and I think some stickers are in order, they are going through them VERY quickly, which is good! Lots of little odds and ends to deal with. 🙂 Have a great weekend.

    1. Yes it definitely takes some co-ordinating to get things done while you’re able to get out and about! I need fruits, veggies and buttons today, but it’s calling for more snow so I don’t know that that will happen.

  2. sounds like a productive day. I seriously wish all schools allowed professional development days to be like that. I know let me do something that would actually help me IN my classroom. Can’t wait to hear what new and fun things you managed to plan.
