As I was deciding what clever title I could use for this post I remembered the saying "Waxing poetic". Thus the clever twist. (oh, I am so, so amazing!) Anyhow I think that what "waxing poetic" means is having a poetic way with words. To go on and on with great embillishment. Of course I will now have to go in search of the real meaning! (Ok...no...too many sites for getting a wax..... Maybe someone out there can offer a definition....)
Please enjoy this picture of a Cedar Waxwing that was munching on the Mountain Ash berries next door. Taken with a digiscope by Jim the birder. Pretty, eh?
Now on to the non-poetic section....since I am so sure you all are getting a tad bored with the teaching rampages of late.... I shall attempt to be breif. I again left work with all giving taken and all energy depleted. Worn out is how I feel. This particular group of children. I am having so much difficulty finding a way to motivate in a positive way. I end up raising my voice and giving ultimatums. Usually by this time of the year the class and I have gotten into a kind of groove where we can have some happy fun times together while learning. I am hoping this group can make the transition by December. On the whole they find it very difficult apply good behaviour learned in one activity to another activity.
Bit more knitting done on the Mystery knit or "Le Tricot Mystere" as I like to call it. Yep, I do like how the colours are coming together.
Tonight is Grey's Anatomy night so more knitting on the shawl to come. Hopefully I'll actually be able to do a fair chunk of it tonight. Don't hold your breath though.
