Super excited for new classes to start tomorrow (teaching, not taking). This explains why I stayed up until 3am last night (or more properly this morning) and then got up at 6.
And why I spent hours and hours uploading old photographs (see image at left and on yesterday's post). I will likely be using these images for some time although they are my mom's. Guest photographs.
The night before I started my first teaching job as an orchestra teacher I stayed up super late-- not prepping for class since that was already done-- making a quilt. Actually three quilts so I had one for each school on my schedule. Yup. too nervous to do anything sensible, I designed and made a wall hanging with a stylized violin. Because that is what everyone does before they start a new job. I'm pretty sure.
Breaking my rule about posting after 9, but we have entered one of two times during the year when I watch television (instead of streaming online stuff). Time one: summer episodes of So You Think You Can Dance. Time two: Downton Abbey and Sherlock. So for the recent future I will be posting late on Sundays or Monday morning. But my money's on the late Sundays.
Monday is my busy day now, which is kind of nice. Get it out of the way. Then Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I just have one class each. Sweet.
Grateful Crap: whispered conversation with 3yo at 4am:
3yo: Why shouldn't you touch knives?
3yo: Why shouldn't you touch sharp things?
me: Because you might get hurt.
me: Because they are sharp/
3yo: (very slowly, and very very quietly) I already said that.
