After yesterday’s intense knitting classes, I knew there would be some kids that needed more help. So I put out the word that I’d come to Park Day today and would be available to any kids who needed help with his or her knitting.
I had five takers, most of whom had such tangles that I had to pull their work out and cast on again. At least a couple of them I think really caught on and made some headway on their first row. And it struck me again today (as it did yesterday despite the craziness) just how much I love kids. Most of my teaching is aimed at teenagers, whom I adore. I love almost everything about teens. But of course that doesn’t mean I can’t like younger kids too! So getting to hang out with younger kids yesterday and today was just so much fun, because kids are amazing. So full of life and hope and smiles and hugs. I’m so glad I agreed to do the knitting classes.
I also finally got outside and did some weeding and pruning. Lots more ahead of me!
This afternoon I drove out to the bookstore and dropped off four books. I left with only three, so it’s still a win, right? I also got a cut of tea and took flowers to the barista, whose birthday was today. I took her some hydrangeas from our yard because they are gorgeous this year:
I also took her some of my chai mix, in case she might like to offer it at some point.
My effort to walk in the gym came to naught because it closed early today. Someone apparently didn’t show up for his or her work shift. So I went to Walmart and got some stuff for Jasper’s camping trip that I don’t think Aldi will have. And I made a cake for him to take because this trip is his birthday bash.
