It Flew

Well it’s been a busy day, but not in a bad way:)

Teaching:

We had a change of routine today and that in addition to the full moon definitely affected my students!

We watched the intermediate public speaking in the morning. The kids lasted through all of it which surprised me. The kids did great, but I thought it was horrible that they still weren’t allowed to remove their masks to do their speech. There was only one kid in the gym at a time and we were all on Teams watching it!

We also got some chalkboard spelling done this morning. Lately I hate doing anything with the whiteboards because someone is always telling me their pen doesn’t work😖

We did relay races in gym and got our math drill done. Lunch was when two students decided to not use their words to solve their problems. I came in to reports of the girl trying to throw her chair at the boy. The girl is dramatic so I doubt this actually would have happened but I tore a strip off both of them!

This afternoon we threw the plan out the window and cleaned our desks and then went outside to play.

I’ve been super tired lately so left right away. I actually also had to get home and get my bike over to the repair shop for it’s tune up tomorrow.

Exercise:

The one time my slow Internet drives me crazy is when I am trying to do my FitOn class. Today it was shoulders, arms and core and I will definitely feel it tomorrow. I got smart though and did other jobs while waiting for it to buffer each time. I also ran with the kids in gym for a half kilometer. I am definitely having trouble with the fact that my mileage this month is so low:(

Knitting:

The big thing of the day was my new sweater. I finished the Kids Flannel by Alicia Plummer last night and wore it today. I think I had more compliments today on this sweater than I have ever gotten before!

This picture is for all of you who are always after me to show the sweater on me. I of course can pick this picture apart in a Zillion ways, but I’ll live with it. the sweater is made out of the discontinued yarn, Carisia by Patons. It is an acrylic/wool blend and not my usual, but it was what I had in my stash that worked. I ended up loving it because it is so soft. The only thing I’m questioning is whether I should use the 1/3skein I have left to lengthen the sleeves??

Well I need sleep, have fun!

Meetings Should be Banned

The day was fine, but the meeting didn’t help it at all!

Teaching:

We created monsters in our journals and then wrote about them. The children also had music class and we began our pumpkin study. Each student has brought a pumpkin so today we brainstormed what we know about pumpkins. We’ll be doing something fun with the pumpkins each day until Friday when we will decorate them. Thankfully it was nice enough to end the day with playtime outside.

We had a CDMC (collective decision making committee )after school. These meetings always feel useless as nothing is ever decided.

Medical:

I finally found a place that had flu shots available so I went after work and had my flu shot and then rewarded myself with ice cream on the way home.

Knitting:

This is the back of the test knit I just finished. It is a cardigan called Garnered by Alicia Plummer. I wore it today and it was super comfy. I did it in LettLopi in Heathered Grey. I did it in a smaller needle size than the pattern called for and next time I would definitely use a larger needle so it would be drapier. I do really like it though.

I am almost done another Alicia Plummer knit- this one a pullover which I should be able to show you soon.

Well there my day in a nutshell, have fun!
