Good morning!

Today should be a pretty normal Friday at home.  Girls have zoom music lessons and I have to pick up monthly meds for the puppy at our vet.  Other than those things I am planning to spend some quality time with the treadmill and video 3 of the kids playing a piece for a summer music camp application.  
   
Coffee!

Happy Friday!

I never actually made a to-do list this week.  I wonder if I've accomplished anything?

Absolutely!  I know for sure you have done math with your kids and worked out some motivational things.

Good Morning!!!

COFFEE!!~D

Friday!!!

The portal finally opened. I’ve been trying to get in the last couple days and to no avail!!

I’ve had a horrible cold all week, but no time to just “be sick”. Work has been insane, my house is an absolute disaster, the tree guy just kinda does things on his own time (did y’all ever read “A Year in Provence” by Peter Mayle?  Remember his frustration with getting his house worked on? 😂 This is me and the tree guy), DH had a tooth extraction yesterday..... did I mention my house is an absolute disaster?

Krissi is always going on about the bananas.  Lol.  I have no idea what it has to do with  the plague shots, but you just never know. 😂

Yes, when I got my plague shot I was pretty thrilled that I didn’t turn into a monkey. But you never know with anyone else, so you gotta ask about banana cravings.

Bananas!

Where did that come from?

I have no bananas also, but I could have banana bread if I wanted, and now I want.

Other than that, status quo. Writing my fingers off, stressing some days, going on for others. 

I'm pretty sure if we have any bananas, they will only be good for baking with.  But I don't know if we actually have any.

Happy FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!

I only have two classes today and one of them I only have one student so it could be really awkward and hard, or very easy.   Could go either way with this student.  

After class I have to run ds home and pick up dd.  Dd is hanging out with an acquaintance that could lead to being a friend.  They were starting to connect before Covid but haven't really seen each other since then.

Good morning!

I have been up since dark o'clock because puppy was outside my door very quietly growling to let us know we were being summoned.  Took him outside for a quick morning constitutional.  
   
It's damp and cloudy out but the rain seems to have stopped for now.  Dh will be out all day today and tomorrow having scout leader emergency training.  I have dog training class a little later this morning and that's it.  I'm thinking I should try to accomplish something today.  But not until coffee.

Coffee!

Morning, Happy Saturday.  I met with dd this morning for a long walk and some yoga.  Now I'm having my second cup of tea.  Today is laundry (already started), classes, maybe some light cleaning.  Tomorrow will be more laundry (probably), and some cleaning at the science center.   

I finished all the books I had borrowed on my kindle and I'm going to try and not get any more until I get a certain amount of work done.

I ordered myself s pair of glasses on Zenni.  Single vision for hiking, because hiking with bifocals is annoying.  They have this "try on" feature where you take a selfie and then see the frames on your face, but my eyesight is so bad that I couldn't see if I was lining my face up properly on my phone and had to have dh help me take the picture.  I am hoping the glasses are decent.

I mentioned that dd13 flew through her homeschool on Thursday because she had a project she wanted to work on.  She made a skirt. :)  Dd16 and I helped her a little bit, but she did most of it herself.  Now she wants to make another one.

Nice skirt!  

Trophies to all who survived the week, got vaccinated, didn't crave bananas, did math, taught science, hiked hills, got new jobs, survived colds, and all the things!

And a trophy for me because I have almost finished our tax return.  😳 🎉 

I was avoiding the time it takes to log on here, but here I am.  Glad to see everyone is clicking along.  It is a rainy day here, but otherwise normal-ish.

I made the mistake of fiddling with something while making dinner and then losing a part to that thing and couldn't find it because it went flying across the room and then in my hurry I stirred the spaghetti sauce too vigorously and meatballs went rolling and I was a bonafide southern hot mess.  But things got put back together and dh got home and found the missing part and the kitchen is cleaned up and I found a Lindt truffle and I ate it.

Morning.  I had plans to stay in bed until noon today.  Instead I was up at 7am.  That's not how this is supposed to work.  On the bright side, I actually slept pretty well last night, didn't feel like I was constantly up tossing and turning.  

Today's agenda (once I finish my second cup of tea):  set up school for the week (kids had "spring break" last week, actually "finish all the crap you didn't do when you were supposed to" week), then I'm running to the science center to do some straightening up/organizing/cleaning, then home to finish the laundry (just needs to be sorted/folded/put away), then back to planning classes for the week.  I have enough done that it's only little tweaks that are left.  

Dh will be arriving home some time today.   The weather is crappy- raining, foggy, blah - so he's waiting a little bit to see if it improves.  

I just mapped out the walk to our lake and it's 1.7 miles from home.  The first 1/3 mile (outside my neighborhood at least) is on a very busy road with no shoulder, no sidewalk, crazy drivers and bikers but since it's a pretty short distance I think it's worth doing.  The rest is back roads if I take that route.  Hilly, windy back roads but safer without much traffic.  

I'm trying to find interesting walks or at least ones that have a goal rather than just "walk around the neighborhood".  I think between the lake, working up to the science center from home, and walks with dd I should get lots of exercise.   At least once I have time for anything but the morning walks with dd.

I am cold so I just wrapped myself in a blanket.  That's the nice thing about online church.

So snuggly!   

I am also cold.  Now that I'm home I can get a blanket.  3rd service was freezing -  I should have brought a coat.  Imma have some coffee now.

I'm on a 13 day streak learning French in Duolingo. 🏆

I just hit a 13-day streak in my walking at home.  I've been trying to do a 2 or 3 mile walk most days.  This is the longest streak I've had this year.

Good morning!  It's The Queen's favorite day!

I have to go do a plague test and pre-surgery labs in The Big City this morning.  Otherwise it's a pretty normal Monday.  Children's zoom choir, youth orchestra, and scouts tonight.

Coffee!

Morning. Baby kitten is still with us and doing a little better. I'm pretty well sleep-deprived, but trying to sleep when she sleeps between feedings. I don't know how I used to do this all the time, and all I can say is that I'm glad I only have possibly two weeks of gas, burping, and colicky baby vs six to nine months of it. Supposing she makes it, but she's got a tenacious drive to hang on to everything, and is already purring and trying to crawl out of her box. So, maybe? We'll see.

Morning.  Happy Monday.  I slept like crap again.  I'm starting to think all signs point to sugar, especially crappy candy or baked goods sugar, is not a good thing in the evening.   It seems to keep me awake way worse than caffeine even.   Dark chocolate covered almonds don't seem to be a huge problem, but mint chocolate cookies or mint chocolate chip ice cream or caramel sauce on ice cream or peanut butter cups  all seem a bad idea (you can tell I"ve been researching this extensively).  Guess I need to tell dh I can only eat really expensive fine chocolates.

I am back from The Big City.  The hospital complex is extremely complex, but I found my way eventually.  
  
In the mean time, dd14 found out that one of the dogs she walked a few times a month died and she is sad.  Dd18 got paperwork filled out for her new library job and she is going to see how long it takes to ride her bike there.

Also, dd14 found a wood thrush nest in a shrub in our yard with 4 little eggs in it.  So exciting!

Story time is about to start.  On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness.

Good Morning!

Happy Tuesday!

Second Pfizer shot went well yesterday.

Not much going on today.  As usual.  I gave the girls light school this week because a) I'm not sure how I'm going to be feeling (side effects of the vaccine) and b) we are doing testing next week.

Good morning!

We are having a couple beautiful days of weather.  I need to go grocery shopoing this morning, otherwise just regular school lessons and tidying up a bit.  
   
I finished watching a series called "Them" on Amazon.  If you like scary-creepy-Stephen King, this is the series for you. Very Disturbing.

Coffee!
