Trivia Tuesday #26

It sure is tough to get back into routine after an extra day off!

Teaching:

We got through a sheet about what students did on Thanksgiving, as well as gym and a collage about needs versus wants.

My students weren’t horrible but I definitely did a lot of explicit teaching around behavior today. We covered how to get space for yourself in a lineup or on the carpet and how to play on the playground. I’m hoping this helps with certain students, but I guess we shall see.

Exercise:

I stopped in to get my eyelashes and eyebrows died today and then forced myself out the door for a run. I only went to the park and back, so not even 3km, but it was at least something. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better running day.

Reading:

I’ve been listening to a podcast called Not Your Mom’s Romance Bookclub and they had talked about a book series that included knitting by Penny Reid. I’ve never been a huge Penny Reid fan, but decided to try the first book, Neanderthal Seeks Human. It ended up being a cute read. I liked how the main female character starts spouting random thoughts when she’s nervous. It was also great when knitting needles were used in a fight and characters argued over the loss of a skein of MadTosh merinošŸ¤£. I will definitely move onto the next book in the series.

Eating:

Thankfully I’ve had a better day than yesterday. I’m wondering if my being out of sorts is caused by a lack of sweets? HmmmšŸ¤”

Today I’ve had:

Oatmeal with peanut butter

Banana

Turkey, dressing, veggies

Fish and chips (I gave up my after school snack and went for a run so I could have this).

I finally got myself a treat for being at day five yesterday and bought my first knitting magazine. Actually I bought two! Knit scene and Knit Simple.

Trivia:

There were four of us for trivia tonight. I knew:

Who wrote The Handmaid’s Tale?

Margaret Atwood

Who did Einstein marry?

First cousin

Who was Ariel’s dad?

King Triton

Finish the Eminem lyrics

There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti

What does a lapidary do?

Polish gems

I just didn’t feel like we knew anything tonight. Oh well, it was still fun:)

Have fun!
