Day 334 (1065)

Almost done with the Christmas program sets, by tomorrow it should be finished! Thank God.  Knees sound like gravel, back and shoulders like boulders.  Can't wait to have the house back to normal. Lack of sleep and appetite is getting old too.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 333 (1064)

pushed it hard again on painting the backdrop sets. I think I'm close to being at 90% done. Did get outside and enjoy some of this lovely weather. Almost ended up with some kittens. Thus today's inspired piece. Hoping to sleep tonight unlike last night with my body being so sore.  I think I need a live in masseuse. Lol.
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 332 (1063)

Today's piece is how I feel after painting backdrop sets all day. At least 98% of the canvases have paint on them. Now I just have to do another coat or two on about 35% of it. Time for a hot shower and a good night's sleep.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 329 (1060)

Ugghhhh! Today's piece says it all. Highlight: 1 awesome class and a student who came to me to help him repair something special of his that was busted. And then there was the rest of the day, which included one student trying everything from screaming, mocking me, etc to get kicked out of my room for 45 minutes.  I won.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 323 (1054)

The week continues on.  Highlight: day 1 of art club.  Glad I picked the group I did.  Though I didn't think out the financial responsibility.  Lol. It'll be worth it.
Hoping no insomnia tonight.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 321 (1052)

Yikes!  Had a student try and do everything possible to disrupt the class and pick on her classmates today... So frustrated for her classmates.  Can't even verbalize it.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 318 (1049)

Happy Friday. Although, if today is any indication as to how these backdrops are going to go, it is not going to be pretty. I don't know why they are not turning out as I hoped. Maybe I just need to go all Jackson Pollock on it. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 316 (1047)

Wednesday.... Getting started on the school Christmas program backdrops.   Also doing  my final list of students selected for the first Art Club....talk about pressure.  30 applied, and I'm only taking 12 - 14.  Sigh.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 315 (1046)

We closed school today so our entire staff could attend our 5th grade teachers funeral.  So grateful.  We got to see aside of Dana that we didn't always see.  Something powerful and beautiful to take in a memorial service as a unified group.
R.I.P. Dana.

Day 312 (1043)

Cleaning of the fridge, rearranging of the garage, Trader Joes and many loads of laundry.  Fun!  Trying to mentally ignore the snow warning coming on Monday.  After the past 2 winters, leaving strongly disliking the thought of winter.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 311 (1042)

Deeply hoping this is a good/fun weekend especially after this week, but my gut is saying otherwise. 
On a positive note, it was nice to see my sixth graders again after 4 weeks.
Today's piece is more rounded than imagined, may need to redo it.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 310 (1041)

Today's piece is yesterday's idea...obviously it came to me when I was still sleepy. 
It'll be weird teaching tomorrow since we haven't had classes the past 3 Fridays.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 309 (1040)

Had a creature in mind for today that I thought of this morning.  But then our school community got sad news.  Dana our 5th grade teacher lost her battle with cancer this morning.   :(  so I changed ideas and did this one for her.  Time to go to bed and lose myself in a book.
Rest in peace Dana...
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 305 (1036)

A day of cleaning including a full classroom set of water color paint holders. I think we got a faulty batch of refills so I'm cleaning it out just make sure. All this cleaning gives a person a lot of time to think, reflect....and funky stained hands.
  Peace and fabulousness.
