Monday Again?

How did Monday get here again so quickly?


We had calendar and music this morning. We read The Party by Barbara Reid- the pictures are so cool- and discussed when our birthdays were. I was impressed that there was only one little girl who truly had no idea where her birthday was.

We tackled a journal entry where students could write about anything, but if they were stuck the prompt was, I can…

Last year I heard repeatedly how low this one little girl was, but today I was super impressed with her writing. She wrote, “ I picked apples at the farm and did a maze with my family. I had fun, so much fun”. That impressed me for a six year old!

This afternoon we watched a YouTube reading of Terry Fox and Me. I am so glad someone finally wrote a book about Terry Fox that is appropriate for Primary. We talked about prosthetics and who the kids would be running for. All but one girl got them done so I’ll take a picture when I get them posted tomorrow.

At the end of the day we went outside to play. It isn’t so nice now that my teaching buddy and I aren’t together:(. One little girl had to go for EAL testing during this time and both she and her mom were super upset as they thought she was going to miss outside play every time. Try explaining this when there is a language barrier. It was a great game of charades, I suppose.


Last week I didn’t get any of my chores done and I was worried that my new chore schedule would collapse, but today I came home and got my floors done quick before I had dinner.


I did the 35 minute Full Body Strength and HIIT workout from NourishMoveLove. It was definitely a challenge and I was dripping sweat by the end so I will call it a success.

Well I’m going to enjoy my book as tomorrow is a busy day!

Have fun!


Netflix and Knit

I know it’s not the saying, but it describes my day.

No exercise today other than two walks with the pup. Sarah cancelled on me which disappointed me, but I’ve now had four days of rest so that hip better behave tomorrow.

Oh as I write this, I realize I did do 20 minutes of upper body weights this morning, so I did do a little something.


I actually still went home and did my chore of the day which was changing my sheets:). I’m not sure this will happen tomorrow, but at least I kept up on most of it.


I redid the front neckline that had broken on me when I was trying my Weekender sweater on. I went up a needle size so hopefully that will make it loose enough that it won’t break again.

I also ripped out the sleeve I had done so far and have redone it with a larger needle size. I will continue to work on that.


My brother seems to have every channel known to man, plus Netflix so I have been enjoying the third season of the Great Canadian Baking Show.

Now I have to go watch the finale.

Have fun!


PJ Day

I really didn’t mean to spend the day in my pajamas!


I got busy this morning and did my one task of housework. I had to change the order as my floors were in desperate need of cleaning, so all sweeping and vacuuming got done today. I’m glad I got at least that done!


I have to admit I spent most of the day eating berries, playing scrabble, reading and watching a Hallmark movie.


Thank goodness I had arranged to run with Sarah today or I never would have gotten out of my pajamas. We did a 5km to the mill and back and boy was it hot and a little busier than I like.

I then came home and did a Hallmark workout which was a minute of jogging between: front raises, crunches, lateral raises, squats, plié squats, deadlifts, burpees, tricep extensions, mountain climbers, pullovers, reverse crunches and bicep curls.

I really need a massage though! My body is getting very sore and creaky.

I know I should be knitting or stitching, but I think I’m going to go back to reading my book.

Have fun!
