just phones. still. and my last post is trapped in the publishing netherworld, maybe it will post itself when i get to a real place. i'll take a picture again in case it doesn't.
that's dana up there now. mary ellen's blonde head in the lower left.
so here we are at USF. performance is about to start, i think. puppets.
Katie (kd?) adams. shadow puppets.
oh god, happy voice...
meanwhile, diana osted this gif this morning, do gifs work here?
no. the camera flashes, is all. oh well.
god, this is not one of the better performances. two yesrs ago we had a great rgami storyteller and brought her to my school where they lved her. last year was okay, but no really applicable to my curriculum. this year.... not so much...
oh well, i really nly come for dana anyway. and if i sit here all day i get inservice points.
the thing is, quality is key. this ain't quality.
what's to talk about... i have to ffure out about the heloc today, over at the credit union. i think i should just go ahead and get the roof done before november, or at least get the cash in place, but we'll se...
i have tomorrow in the classrom go get prepared, and friday and Monday afternoons..... i'm really trying to take thngs easy and whever i get an anxietymaking thought to just release it. i'm old. no more strivng; it wll work out.
i need to shop for my swap ackage. thought i'd look at cacciatore, see if they have some great indigenous kitcheny things. and some coffee beans, maybe from naviera...?
i think this is the first year i haven't brought knitting. a mistake.
i feel sorry for the new peop,e, they must think this is it.
okay, i went out in the lobby, couldn't stand it anymore. i w as not alone.
actually, that's after they took a break, whereupon i went back in
i don't think i've seen more than half a dozen familiar faces. that much new hiring? at least i guess that's good for my senority, whatever that's worth. ten years. sigh.
with haea. i'm thking maybe i won't join this year, the price has gone up and i really don't participate. they just had haea members all stand jst as i was writing that, must have been listening. oh, an we're supposed to include it in our evaluations, i guess i should just pony up.
now dana. this is really the only thing i come to these for.
they combined art and msic at desoto??
28 new hires this year! 225 total; 136 elementary, 36 middle, 54 high
elementary prioryity exhibitions: young@art, faf
no elementary budget increase approvedqqq
at professional study day at usf. all day. wally, the arts dean when i was here and the arts dean still, announces they're finally partnering with mass com to offer digital and design, which i was asking for when i was here. i was here some 25 years ago.
it's going to be that kind of day.
this hall wasn't here then, or not in this form. still no universal wifi don't think, let me check.
well, pRtially, anyway. i wonder what i can get...

is coming. i still have another ten days, but the shawl is (nearly--the light failed before i could finish that last little corner) finished.
i've sourced and started my next project, at last a fair isle cardigan in about one-third shetland and as many colors as i can fit into this (to me) unfamiliar color pallette.
lot's to study first, i think.
what's left in these last ten days, then, is working on a coiffure and details for her, and processing and spinning my fleece! saving the cats for winter, i suppose.

...but still exhausted. got out to ingles (rigorously limiting myself to doing just one thing) and stocked up on some sixty bucks worth of staples for the month. making pork with beans and greens and working on reviving the starter. other than that, i'm still wiped. a nap in the afternoon, with a crombie mystery on audio.

i finally got myself back up to brigadoon, and on the dsy i'aglways intended to. i really, really couldn't imagine myself driving, but drive i did, straight through, and got here right at 6pm. didn't even unlad the car, just bringing down the things i absolutely thought i'd need this evening. couldn't post to fb, as the ipad had run out of battery for some reason ( i must have forgotten to turn it of while audiobooking...)
only had a few moments to say hi to michael and randy before my frozen pizza was ready. i ate some of it, and a lot of water, and plugged in all the electronics, and here i am. i'm too tired even to knit. showered, and now sleep, lulled by the audiobook and benadryl. zzzzzzz
