Goals: Update #4

Done! All of the goals that I posted at the start of break have been accomplished.

  • Little Squid now has new, warm mittens
  • Papa Squid has a big sack of homespun sweater yarn
  • and we finished the puzzle.
In addition:
  • I'm almost done with the woven scarf(?) (might be 2 or 3, it seems to be taking forever!)
  • I built another airlift hydroponic system
  • I made a fresh batch of yogurt
  • I figured out how I'm conducting my last 3 weeks of classes
  • I graded the papers that I brought home
  • I played lots of Wii with the kids and Mike
  • I played a few board games with the kids (and Mike)
  • I slept until 7 or (gasp!) later almost every day
  • I started a major cleaning of the kitchen which will ultimately lead to a paint job during either February or Spring break (I'm taking it in small chunks so it is not too overwhelming. 15 - 20 minutes a night of serious cabinet and wall scrubbing.)
  • and I ordered a big-girl Loom.
My goals for the next month are:
  • To spend lots of time at work making sure that the student programs are ready to go on February 1.
That's it. I really can't put anything else on the list with that looming. Oh, and maybe warp my loom once it arrives at the end of the month. (Like that won't happen!)

I'll try to get some pictures of the yarn posted later, and maybe the yardage if I manage to finish it off.
