Monday Again

I wish I had a more exciting title for my Monday posts. I’ll have to think about this.

Exercise:

My slow data only drives me crazy when I am trying to do my workout video on the FitOn app so this morning I did my workout when I got to school. This was also because I had a massage right after school and I try to take 24 hours off after my massage to enjoy the loose muscles. I did just a quick intro to tabata workout, but it was at least something!

Teaching:

We got through a journal, PE class, looking at bar graphs and answering questions from them, and an introductory video to matter. I really wanted to get the kids to do their wonder wall questions after the video, but I had to give the reading prizes for last week and so we will do the questions tomorrow. We also went outside at the end of the day and worked in the class garden box and played on the playground. It was a successful day and was made better by the use of my new hearing amplifiers. It does amplify everything which can be a little annoying in the classroom, but I also felt like I didn’t have to work so hard to hear the kids which was nice. The bell and my friend yelling at lunch=not so nice, but I’m sure I’ll adjust.

Knitting:

I ran down the hill to get to my massage appointment and actually had time to hit the grocery store first, but unfortunately they still didn’t have my milk:(. I want my milk!!!!!

I came home to happy mail! That is what I call knitting mail as it’s way better than getting bills. I got three skeins from Area51 Fibres. The name always makes me smile as my parents end of the marina finger is Area51. I didn’t plan to get three skeins as I just wanted to try them out, but they sell every colourway in 50g skeins which I appreciate as then I don’t have to make four pairs of socks in the same colour and they have free shipping at a certain amount which was three of these.

I got the Miss Jane (left), The Duke and I (middle) and Claire (right). I can’t wait to start knitting with these and see how they feel and how they knit up!!

I have spent the evening working on my Kids Flannel sweater again as I feel like I am closest to finishing this one which is a good thing because it is a test knit. I have finished a sleeve, am working on the second sleeve and then will do the neck band and then just knit on the body until I run out of yarn. At this point I will be lucky if it doesn’t turn out to be a cropped sweater!

Well that’s it for me, have fun!
