I finally got my act together on a project that began last year and has been sitting dormant for several months.
Let me tell you about…
- Today was a teaching day in Poitiers. I’ve probably mentioned before that this semester I crammed all seven teaching hours into a single day to avoid extra trips to Poitiers. They make for brutal days, but they go by quickly and I’m done before you know it. Today, I was able to do just a little bit extra to help a couple of students who needed help on a particular assignment. Of course it’s my job to teach them, but not all students come looking for extra help, so when it happens, it shows an interest that I like to encourage. Little periodic sparks like that help keep the flame burning bright. (Can I get an “Amen!” from any fellow teachers?) 🙂
- I got home just in the nick of time for Liz to then turn around and get back out with the car to take Timo to a friend’s birthday party. Soph & Dominic, when they get home from school typically retreat to their rooms to vedge after a day of people-ing and since Liz & Timo were out… the house was extra quiet. Perfect conditions for a quick post-work cat nap on the couch. My mom used to do this religiously when she’d get home from work. As a kid I questioned their merit… now, they are the bees’ knees!
- Tonight I finally dug back out a “work in progress” project that has been waiting patiently for me for quite some time. At one point last year I saw the crochet pattern for a small shadow-square that was rather unique and I ended up doing a L-O-T of them (I like small projects because they do up quickly in spare moments and can eventually be made into something bigger). I wasn’t sure what I was going to make but finally got my act together and laid them out to determine size, pattern, etc. It’ll either be a baby blanket to sell or a lap blanket to keep; we’ll see, once the joining is done, how big it is. It feels good though, to finally move forward with this.
