The first week back to school after break was lovely, but the second week? Not so much. In fact, it was brutal. It was one of those weeks when I seriously wonder how I'll last until retirement. But I'm relaxing today, thanks to the MLK holiday, so I won't spoil the day by dwelling on last week. Other to say that thanks to a website called ReadWorks, my students are very well informed about Martin Luther King, Jr., more so than my students from previous years.
I finally reorganized my craft/knitting room and I've even managed to snug a comfy chair in here. Since Stephanie is back with us, it's good to have a space of my own. Gracie loves hanging out with me, and with the sun shining and the chest of drawers for a perch, she was right at home. In fact, she's sitting there right now. I may even paint this room over spring break, if I can decide on a color.
She even took a little snooze. Steve thinks I should put something soft on top for her, but she looks comfortable to me.
The rest of the day consisted of knitting and a little visit with my youngest. We treated ourselves to ice cream despite the cold temperatures.
I have just begun knitting again on my Guernsey Wrap from the fall. I adore the way Green Mountain Spinnery's Weekend Wool feels and looks and am enjoying the process as much as I think I'll enjoy the finished product.
And my friend, Lori, made me finish the Cafe Au Lait mitt I began almost two years ago; I only had to knit the thumb. Now for another one, maybe in less than a year? This is also Green Mountain Spinnery yarn, but not sure of the name.
They're calling for possible snow this weekend. Although I know we'd have to make it up, I always hope for snow days. So, fingers crossed!
