Outside my window... The sun is setting. My office window faces West so I'm seeing red and orange in the dark sky.
I am thinking... that I didn't get enough done this weekend. I still have piles of marking to do, but one of my colleagues (a half-time teacher who was just hired) has been helping us all out with marking and today she took some of mine.
I am thankful for... the generosity of my colleagues - the one who is doing some of my marking and another who is creating a writing assignment for me.
From the learning rooms... I learned how to knit on double-pointed needles! A whole new world has opened up for me.
From the kitchen... nothing. I am attending a dinner at the University Faculty Club tonight so I don't have to cook (not that I would anyway...)
I am wearing... a brown tweedy skirt and a turquoise and brown sweater, with brown leather boots and tights.
I am creating... another seed scarf and still trying to get my quilting projects finished.
I am going... crazy with all there is to be done here at school and at home before Christmas.
I am reading... Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland. She wrote the Josephine trilogy.
I am hoping... that tonight's dinner and speaker won't run too late. I'm tired and really looking forward to sleep.
I am hearing... classical music played on Sky.fm.
Around the house... Christmas decorations went up Saturday night and Sunday. The OnlyChild and I got home from our play Saturday night around 11 pm and decided to clean and decorate. We went to bed at 1:30 am Sunday having not quite finished everything.
One of my favourite things... a clean desk. Hasn't happened yet this semester!
A few plans for the rest of the week... finish the final project for my course, pick up a couple of Christmas presents, knit some, sew some, sleep.
Here is a picture thought:
My sister, Sarah, and my two nephews. This picture was taken over 20 years ago. I have it framed and sitting in my office. Since I'm at work, my choice of pictures is generally limited to Social Studies images... and this photo!
Thanks to Sara at Fabric and Fiber Fanatic for inspiring this post.
