Today was a long day. After a poor night’s sleep, I arrived at Hebrew school to find out that the 1st grade teacher was sick, so I would have her class along with my full class of Prek/K. Not a big deal, just had to make extra copies and re-think a little of my lesson plan. The kids were pretty wired, but we had a fun morning.
Right after school, we had a Synagogue clean-up day that I helped organize. I trudged around the grounds with a huge garbage bags and 4 little helpers gathering trash. The bag got pretty heavy, pretty fast, so my arms got a good workout!
I arrived home exhausted and in need of a beverage! I popped open a cider and sat down to work on my crocheting. I have always wanted to learn how to crochet, but while I could get the stitches right I could never get the tension right. Thanks to the Klutz Crochet book I finally got the hang of it and made my first two projects, a jewelry roll for each of my bridesmaids and a flower:
The funny thing is, I think that the booze actually helped with this process! The key to the tension is to relax your arm and hold the hook loosely. I tend to grip needles pretty tight, so being in a “relaxed” state helped.
I’m now working on little soap bags for the ladies doing the readings, and I learned a new skill!
