Spring Break Tally SOLSC 30

30 Mar

Spring Break is almost over. I go back to work on Monday,where, all the rest & relaxation of this week will probably disappear because we have conferences starting on Wednesday. That means two 12 hour days. Not good for a morning person. Ah well…

As Spring Break winds down, I thought I’d take stock of what I intended to do and what I actually accomplished. Here are my lists.

Things started before Break, but finished during Break

1. The adult sweater I knit for the ASA Gala auction. (see picture below)

2. The Interestings by Meg Wohlitzer

3. Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger

4. adoptions finalized for 2 puppies (Biscuit & Trixie)

 

Things started and finished during Break

1. The child sweater I knit for the ASA Gala auction. Both will be turned in today.

2.  Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool

3.  Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee

4. Dahlias planted.

5. ORELA test for Middle School Language Arts

 

Things I intended to do during Break, but didn’t

1.Take a nap everyday. I only managed this once, on Thursday.

2. Go through my files and shred. UGH. Such a mundane task.

3. Hang the pictures I had taken of the girls in December. I’ve had the prints  and the frames for a while. But I used the frames to block the sweaters. Maybe I’ll hang them next week.

4. Start The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. Obsessive knitting kept me from starting this book. Just one more row. I really wanted to turn the sweaters in at church today.

 

Here’s a picture of the sweaters. They look OK, but  I am not thrilled with my color choices. I wanted something that a mother and daughter could wear together without the mother looking like she was a little girl. They look better here than they do in my house. I think I just need a little distance form the project.
