Let me start my post with a tag for Pinky's ANIMAL challenge at Tag Tuesday.
I started with some printed number tissie. Then I scraped on a bit of paint. The silly cat is from TH. I stamped the top border image in white, and then I added lots of paper dots which I decorated a bit. I debated on a quote, but I think his expression says it all.
So yesterday was one of those days. I gave a quiz to one of my classes, and then what did I do? I deleted them all by mistake. Good thing Google classroom lets the kids keep a copy so they can resubmit them to me. But instead of being able to grade them afterwards, now I have to wait for the kids to relink them.
And I had more kids oversleep too for this same morning class. So I had to redo class later in the day so they could take their quizzes. But at least I didn't delete those.
And Kathy asked yesterday if I was going to have a retirement party. Well, last Saturday I got an text from a friend who said "Happy today was suppose to be your retirement party day." Huh?
Then a text quickly followed from another friend that I wasn't supposed to know about that.
So a party was planned for myself and another friend who is also retiring. Our whole department was invited, our book club friends were coming, my husband and daughter had been invited, my other retiring friend's family was invited and even a friend of mine from North Carolina was coming north for the party. But it had to be postponed because of covid-19 right now.
I have to say I didn't want a party, but when I found out one had been planned, it made me sad it wasn't going to happen. I think it is going to be rescheduled in the future, so I will just have to wait and see.
But I did make a really easy sourdough bread that I started Monday and finished yesterday. And it was delicious. You might have heard of this recipe but you mix the ingredients, let then sit in a covered container for 18-24 hours. Then you shape the loaf, let it rise for a bit, and then bake it. No kneading, no electric mixer needed, not a lot of work time time nor any big messes.
And some very nice weather means I head outside after remote teaching most of the day, and there hasn't been a lot of art time. I'm really ready to remedy that; good thing we have the long Memorial Day weekend ahead. And including today, only 12 teaching school days left.
Time is flying, isn't it?
