This thought got me through today!


I actually had to get my big mean voice out today as my kids were noisy and not listening. I felt really bad, but I guess it’s pretty good to get to November before having to do that.

This morning we did a pre reading strategy of making predictions with the book, Dear Mrs. LaRue by Mark Teague. I love this book, but it definitely made me realize that some kids books are written for the parent reading them. It was probably too hard for them to understand but they did a great job of making predictions based on the front and back cover.

We finally got to some math! We did greater than and less than. We watched an introductory video and then did some practice on the smartboard. We didn’t get to the worksheet, but everyone seems to be understanding the concept. I thought it would be more difficult than even/odd, but I guess not.

This afternoon we made our poppies for the Remembrance Day wreath. Our assembly will be virtual but the wreaths will be displayed in the front hall. All but one student finished and that was because of talking!

We unfortunately didn’t make it outside to play today which was a shame because it was beautiful, but the poppies had to be done!


I didn’t feel like running, but had made a commitment to meet Melanie and so off I went. We got 5.59km done so pretty good for a Thursday night!


I haven’t been super impressed with the MetPro app yet, but I see they’ve finally put me down a level. I am wondering if they’ve taken into account my size at all??? I will give it a few more days, but so far, the only plus has been that it is getting me off sugar!


I ripped out my toque so far and am looking for one I can do with two strands of fingering held together. I hope I find one soon as I don’t like being without a knitting project. As I write this, I’m realizing that I think I have three blue toques and here I am making another one?!?!


I am very happy that I got my sheets changed and I got my dishes loaded and the dishwasher turned on today:)

Ok I’m off to read in bed.

Have fun!

  1. sounds like a good day. Oh and I know about the “little person with the big voice” that’s me too. I can project and people don’t expect it. I always thought it was from my years of singing?

    I don’t think there is something as too much blue. so many beautiful shades of one color (:

  2. I read togue as tongue and I thought you wrote “I ripped my tongue out” so I was very confused lol.
    Nothing is better than fresh sheets! Feels so good to crawl into bed for that first sleep

    1. Thank you! I do seem to wear them but maybe I’ll look at some of the others and see if I want to remake them into something else
