It was a good day with an expensive ending!
We got through McCracken spelling this morning and then I had to leave the kids for a stupid meeting. It only took ten minutes as I didn’t have much to say at this time. We also did a patterning sheet where the students had to follow the rules. They got the concept, but so many forgot to actually look at the rules!
We got the rest of the parent gifts finished and sent home✅ another thing off the list.
We did relays in gym again where the children got to choose the Christmas movement. We had a lot of flying angels!
Finally this afternoon we did silent reading/ guided reading and we did a class book. This provided the best moment of the day! The book was comprised of pages that said ” For Christmas I want to give — to —-. One little girl told me she wanted to give love to her family and we had hugs for mom, candy canes for the elf, etc, but then the last page says, ” I want to give alcohol to my dad.”￼🤣🤣🤣
My teaching buddy doesn’t work on Wednesdays so I was out of there pretty early. I felt like doing nothing but that won’t get me to South Dakota, so I made myself go out for an easy run. It ended up being 5.26km of easy run and it felt good, though I got extremely wet!
I got a few patterns done on my brother’s scarf at lunch and a few rounds done on my sweater tonight. I saw two pretty yarns on Instagram today. One is called ugly Christmas sweater and I love the speckliness of the red, green and cream, but it’s $30 a skein and it’s worsted so I would need several skeins to make a sweater:(. The other is a matched set of small balls of self fading yarn for socks- such gorgeous colours!!!
After a shower and dinner, I picked up my friend and headed for Costco. For those of you worried, she is one of my people as I’m single. Yet again, I spent way too much at Costco and I didn’t even really buy a lot. I did buy myself a lovely new robe that I am already enjoying. I put a ton of stuff back, including a bread maker. The bread maker had a gluten free setting which the lack of one is the reason my mom ended up with my last bread maker. I am just wondering if I would use it enough to make it worth spending money on. If anyone has an opinion, I’d love to hear it!
