Your Vocabulary Score: A
Congratulations on your multifarious vocabulary!
You must be quite an erudite person.
OK, I have to admit that I cheated, kind of. My first score was an A- The only word I wasn't positively positive about was peruse, so I went back and changed my answer. I initially chose "to read quickly" as the answer, but their answer was "to read carefully." Huh. I just asked Russ, and he said "To kind of look it over." Paige also thought it was "like scanning something." I think we're right.
I have done very little knitting during my "blog" absence. I have also done less writing than I had planned. Two weeks ago I bragged that I thought I could be done by last Sunday afternoon with my thesis. That was my downfall. I've gotten a lot of gardening done though! I think I'm ready to finish for real this week, and I'm really not embarrassed that I've procrastinated. Writing isn't just something that you decide to do, and then everything falls into place. I can sit in front of the computer and produce nothing or I can recognize that I'm stuck and plant some flowers. I'll go with the flowers.
Here's a picture of Josie Kitty sitting on a pile of laundry. I don't fold laundry when I'm having writer's block either. Anyway, school is out in two days, so I'm starting to get happier and happier. I am teaching an inservice to a bunch of fellow teachers on webpage design and then three weeks of summer school, but I'm still feeling the stress fall away. My summer school class is an html class and only has six kids in it. It really shouldn't even fly, but people with the power seem to like me. Besides, they know that I'll work on our school's webpage with those kids, so it's a deal for them too.
I did knit one more bunny in the last couple of weeks. Russ has a "prize" box in his classroom for kids who read at home and bring back cards from their parents, and he used my other bunnies as prizes.He said the girls loved them. His school is in a really poor neighborhood, so I like that they got something special like a handknit rabbit. I'll try not to think about the fact that they'll probably be left out in a sandbox somewhere. At least they won't get rained on this time of year!
