There’s something about the first snow of the year, it is like catnip to small children. It doesn’t matter if the snow stays or not, expect children to be nutty when the snow starts flying. It’s been a long week (that is not over yet). Kids have been nutty all week long, lots of behavior issues, lots of meltdowns, and to top it all off, at least three cases of H1N1 at the school. Fun, fun, fun!
I started the week off with a bang, when I realized that the red wine stains on my pink sweater that appeared to be gone in the lights of my bathroom, were in reality not gone in the harsh lighting of my school. (Not that they were all that noticeable, but still). From now on, I must remember to look at clothing in better lighting before leaving my house.
With all the flu hullabaloo, I’ve now realized that kinders spend lots of time with their fingers in there noses.
On a brighter note, I finished the Gillyweed socks for sister’s birthday. I’ve now cast on for a new pair of socks, using a pattern called Hermione’s Everyday Socks. It is a simple stockinette pattern with a few purl stitches thrown in every couple of rounds. I’m using the Juliet Sock Yarn from a company called Yarn Love. The colorway is called Belle and is a combination of yellows, browns, purples, and greens. A nice springy colorway for these cold dreary fall days.
