Afternoon Patricia :)
Man....the first day back was BRUTAL!! Still feeling a little wobbly. I get pneumonia every year....but this is the first that that it has triggered asthma attacks. Anyhow, I was wiped when I got back home. Thank goodness it wasn't a full day. Made some coffee when I got home. I gave my grade 4s a Dictée (spelling test) today. The deal is....if the lowest grade of all the dictées for the month is no lower than 90%, we get to treat. So far....we've had ONE celebration since Sept. So I'm not worried! There's whining (what else is new)..."No fair". Can you believe it!!! I say, "No fair??? Who's responsibility is this get 2 weeks to study 8 words!" (In my mind, I'm thinking....suck it up buttercup!)
I made meals in no baking/cooking tonight! I've begun tabulating marks in preparation for the first term reports. A never ending process.
I'm going to watch a Walton's rerun at 5 and put my feet up. There's promise of much colder weather and snow for the weekend...right now, it's 2C ( 36F), and raining. Not your typical Canadian January! Any significant snow at your end?
I think I'll welcome a few newbies before vegging out.
Have a great day dear friend, thanks for touching base. I'm feeling much better :)
How have YOU been?
luv and hugs.....linda
