Where as Winter Break gone? Today is the last official day, tomorrow is supposed to be a teacher work day, but with the contract that the governor implemented in July, we will be on Directed Leave Without Pay instead. I've gone in a couple of times over the last 2 weeks. One day I did a thorough cleaning of my "office" area and the others I just stopped in to feed my fish.
Without my bestie and her sweet sons around over the break, I had to find things to keep myself occupied. The highlights though?
I started on a 2012 goal and went to a crochet class where I learned to single stitch, double stitch, and triple stitch. Just enough so that I'll be able to make a couple of the projects that I've pinned, including making dish scrubbers with nylon netting.
I wrote down my grandmother's "recipe" for traditional mochi soup that we eat for breakfast on New Year's Day. It's taken 27 years, but I finally have acquired a taste for it and actually ate 2 bowls this year!
What have I not done? Report cards, science/social studies unit planning, National Board entry planning...
