Although she loves sitting on my lap, something I was afraid she would never do.
And here's her playful side, enjoying another sunny morning.
Melissa came over a few weekends ago to raid my craft room. She whipped up a birthday banner for one of her roommates. I love her approach to crafting, it's so much more fearless than the way I do it.
Oh wait, I do have a knitting photo. Steve draped a cowl around his Napoleon statue. Cute.
I've been drowning in schoolwork this semester. Traveling from room to room instead of being in one place has been great for my organizational skills, but tough in other ways. I hate not having control on my environment, so much so, that I yarn bombed my cart. Hopefully next year I won't have to travel. We do it so no classrooms go unused, and the administrators try to make it fair for as many of us as they can. I didn't have to do this first semester, which was a blessing, so it's my turn now.
I love teaching high school English though, and I am so glad I made the decision to transfer. Every day is a learning experience and I love seeing what my students think about things and helping them make connections between their lives and literature. Quite an honor to be here, no matter how frustrating it is at times.
But today is Saturday and I am planning to meet a friend for lunch and then meet another friend for knitting. Not too shabby, eh?
