Yesterday was a tough day as the whole school was off the wall! I had five different teachers go in and talk to my class at lunch and then come tell me about it. Needless to say, I collapsed into bed early last night. Thankfully today was better!

Teaching:

We got through a lesson on “Ed” this morning. The kids got the concept, but found the worksheet difficult. I don’t think they normally would have, but Spring Break brain definitely seems to be affecting them.

We also made it through recess where I was on supervision and had to discipline a kindergarten boy. We have two K boys who have behavior issues and I know I’ll get one of them at least next year so I am trying to be firm already. He pushed a boy and then ran away when I tried to talk to him so he had to spend the rest of recess walking with me. He didn’t like it, but that is the point!

My class did their addition drill after recess. It is amazing what a smelly marker can do. I have always highlighted the day they are doing, but this year I am using a smelly marker to do it. Suddenly, math drill is the best part of the day🤣

This afternoon we had silent reading and then students were working on turning a shoebox into a community building. They were so engaged! I can’t wait to see how the buildings turn out!

We ended the day with outside playtime in the sunshine. Have to take advantage when we can!

Exercise:

I met up with Sarah and Dennis for a run at the river. It was a gorgeous day and we had a decent pace, so I’ll call it a success.

My FitOn workout today was 44 minutes long! I so didn’t feel like doing that, but I did:)

Knitting:

I had good and I had bad. I had signed up and paid for an Anne of Green Gables KAL with Lady Dye Yarns. It was supposed to start yesterday. Today I emailed and inquired about where my kit was. I had been surprised that they only allowed a week for the kit to get across the US and into Canada 🙄. Well my kit is in New York. Needless to say, I have not been impressed so far!

Especially when it is compared to my other knitting order experience today. I had ordered just a couple little things from BohoKnits. They were mailed the day I ordered:). I received them today:).

She even put in two extra stitch markers to say thank you and so that my stitch marker holder didn’t arrive empty. It was so wonderful! I felt appreciated and that I had gotten good value for my money. I can’t wait to use these items.

I have spent what little knitting time I’ve had today on my Bentley sweater as that KAL started yesterday. The challenge for me will be to make the sweater knit last. It is just a top down raglan so I could probably be done by the end of the weekend, but I will do my best to stretch it out.

I will include a picture of my latest sock finish. Please excuse the fact that they have not been blocked yet. These are the Meandros socks from the book Operation Sock Drawer by the Knitmore Girls and are part of the SPY21 KAL through River City Yarns this year.

I used two minis for these socks and still have some left!

Well I have to go read as I didn’t realize my book review is due in two days!

Have fun!

  1. ahhh the days leading up to vacations are always tough. sounds like they bounced back and were doing decent in the classroom at least?

    Can you get your money back from the shop who didn’t think about how long it would take to ship something? What if you were in the US, it still takes time to ship things across the country… silly people!

    1. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet. I guess I’ll see when it actually shows up. I was surprised something wasn’t offered in the email
