Yesterday we had a snow day, complete with hot chocolate, movies, knitting and p.j.s. The only thing missing was snow. Today we’re back to school. The ground is clear, but it’s still 19°F. My mom said there was over 10 inches of the stuff out at their house on the coast.
Progress was made on Jackie’s (my sister) vest yesterday. If all goes as planned, it’s going to flow, with a pleat behind the lace leaf panels on the front to make them drape. The front sides will end in points angled towards the center, where the vest meets up in the middle. Theoretically. When I tried to take a picture Roxanna jumped in to make it important. Every time I moved her she’d go right back to rolling around on it.
Finally I gave up taking the picture in the office and relocated to the dining room. After laying out the vest and retrieving the camera this is what I found.
Roxanna and Steve were quite persistent, so in the end, this was the best picture I managed to get.
Eyeball update: A2 watched a movie about dissecting the cow’s eye while in class on Wednesday and decided that she would participate in the lab after all. She spent about an hour yesterday (because there was no snow to play in) on-line making note cards for the pre-test the students must take. This will be a group project so that helped her decide too. Working with friends always makes any job easier. She promised not to complain and to try her best.
It’s Friday, so hope everyone enjoys a safe, warm end to the work week. Cheers!
