I had absolutely no ambition today, really wanted to just stay in bed with my book!


We got through a journal, music class, gym class of What Time is it Mr. Wolf?, an assessment of place value, and a lesson on hibernation.

The kids were best during the assessment and I actually got the entire class done in one go- unheard of!

At the end of the day we went outside as it was sunny when we went. It started hailing, but the kids didn’t appear to even notice. I was a frozen popsicle by the end though!

I headed out quickly after school as I had a massage.


I finished the book The Toffee Heiress by Sydney Jane Bailey. This is the second in the series and I enjoyed it as much as the first and have started on the third book now. It is complete fluff, but happy and enjoyable!


I had started a toque out of the yarn I bought in Burn’s Lake last year, but it just wasn’t right, so I’ve ripped it out and have started on a pair of mitts for myself. For a long time I had a grey pair of the Simplest Mittens in the World by TinCanKnits that I loved, but they got holes in them, so now I am replacing them. I really need to get going as it’s cold outside right now!


I have finished the Canadian Baking Show and Emily in Paris so far and am almost done Virgin River. If anyone knows of any other good chick flick things on Netflix, please let me know.

Well that’s it for my Monday.

Have fun!

  1. It’s funny how as kids we don’t notice the weather when we’re outside having fun. I probably would have been a frozen popsicle, too. 😂

    I don’t have much ambition this morning, AJ. I have a headache, my ears are ringing and I feel 🤢. But I’m trying to stay positive. 🙃

  2. hope your day moves smoothly and you can crawl back into bed after work (and all the after school things are done) and read some more. I keep saying to my husband that I need a good pair of mittens. When I walk even with my gloves on my fingers start to get cold, and I pull them down into the palm of my glove… yep I need mittens.

    1. I’ve been ignoring the fingers on my gloves too which is how I knew I needed mitts too. I already love the feel of the ones I’m making, but unfortunately Tuesday is my busy day:(

      1. Ya this time I’m doubling the yarn so it’s worsted weight whereas last time I did the fingering weight. The yarn is variegated so I’m not going to bother with any fancy stitches

  3. I much prefer mittens to gloves too. That was a good day at school! We’ve had two nights in a row with decent sleep, and I feel like a new woman! Got the cleaning chores done before 9 am yesterday, and actually got some sewing in!
