It was a pretty good day that just kept humming along:)
Wow I slept right to the late alarm this morning and still didn’t want to get up!!
Thankfully I got a workout in with Lyndsay after school. It didn’t go according to plan as there were no treadmills available, so we used the bike, rowing machine and elliptical. I definitely noticed that they used different muscles than running so it was probably a good thing there were no treadmills. We did some floor work as well. Clean & press, lateral step ups, planks, skaters, up/downs, seated leg crunch, and probably some other things I’ve forgotten.
I fell walking across the road coming home from Lyndsay’s. it was wet and dark! A woman thought I was a kid so she hopped out of her car in rush hour traffic, to come check on me. It was very kind of her! Another week with a sore knee, I guess🙁😏
I had been starving all day and before my workout I ate oatmeal. When I came home I had salmon on cucumber and celery slices and roasted cauliflower. If I was going to eat everything in sight, I had to at least make it healthy food!
Of course I went from starving to stuffed so I ended up working out a second time. I did a half hour Pinterest workout that had push-ups, mountain climbers, squats, wall sit, jumping jacks, planks, lunges and high knees in it. Thankfully I feel just right now:)
Today was pretty chill with the children. I still have four away so it makes it tough to cover content. Math went completely sideways on me today. We were doing a worksheet on using two coloured counters to create equations that equal ten. Well my children seem to love making patterns so they all coloured the blocks in nice patterns and so all the equations turned into 5+5=10.🤣. Thankfully we’ve covered this concept other ways too, so it wasn’t the end of the world:)
We did snowflakes for art today. We read the book, Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin.<<<<<<<<<br
d circles and folded them and then cut into them to make interesting snowflakes. I like doing art projects that are a little more simple or old fashioned sometimes so the children get the idea they don't need an electronic game to entertain them at home! Our classroom now looks like a blizzard hit it😂 Reading:
I’m still working my way through my current book, so nothing new to report there. I do however have my next three books laid out waiting for me, so I need to get this one finished. Tonight I’ve made good progress as I’ve had the luxury of having a night where I knit a pattern repeat and then read a chapter:)
My Cowl is coming along. I’m liking the lace pattern, though I’m a little worried that it might be too stiff:( I don’t like cowls that stand up, I prefer when they drape nicely. I guess we’ll just have to see.
My tea today was David’s Tea Honeycrisp Apple. It was super good! I think it would be an excellent fall tea. It didn’t get bitter even when it had been left for hours in my insulated thermos:)
On the note of drinking- I’m good about drinking water. I usually finish my one litre water bottle every day, but lately my lips are still dry:) This is driving me nuts so if anyone has any ideas of how to solve this problem, I’d love to hear them. I keep them covered in lip balm ( and yes mom, only gluten free lip balm)and they are still dry.
Well I’m going back to my knitting and reading pattern.
