I have felt like my life has been boring lately with so little happening with all the snow so it was great to go out and do something new and fun tonight:)
For our community unit we always invite parents to come in and talk to the classes about their jobs. I love it when different jobs from the regular doctor, fireman, police man, nurse, etc comes in. Today we had our first parent and he was a senior operations manager who takes care of buildings in downtown. It was very cool and even I learned a lot.
Besides this, we tackled a couple of math games, and drawing pictures of places in the community, which we then taped onto a grid to create a community. We’ll be using this for more activities in the week to come.
I left immediately to come home for the fiber optic cable people and they were late. After fifteen minutes I called and it seemed like they hadn’t even planned on coming. Thankfully they did as my closet contents are strewn across my living room right now.
While they were working I worked on my Midnight Rose sweater. I have completed the bottom colour work and had forgotten how much I enjoy colour work. My very first sweater was stranded colour work in a Scandinavian sweater, but I don’t think I’ve done any since:(. It was a lovely break from rushing around.
As soon as the workmen left, I headed out for my run. I noticed that it was super busy on the trails today! I got a nice half hour run done today, though it was slower, due at least in part to the continued ice on the trail.
After coming home for a quick shower I met my colleague Liane and her friend Cam at a local pub for trivia night. It was a lot of fun and we plan to go back again next week. It was 2.5 hours of four rounds of just plain guessing and good times. We plan to double the size of our team for next week!
Well I need sleep now!
