Today, it is raining, and the Avoca River is back on Flood Watch. I am watching the river levels with interest. Not alarm, but interest. I am wondering whether the swimming pool is going to overflow and whether I need to call Mr PD for instructions on how to let out some of the water before it does.
Today, I will be reading aloud the next few chapters of Howard Pyle's The Story of King Arthur and his Knights. This is a really great book. Merlin has just been beguiled and brought down by the evil Vivien, and that has made me rather sad.
Today, Jemimah will complete MEP 5a and I am feeling really proud of her efforts. She has been working on special quadrilaterals, including parallelogram, rhomboid, trapezium, deltoid, square and rectangle this week, and it has been a nice break from more mundane maths problems. She has good spacial and geometric awareness, and we will be testing it using this fun online quiz. My score was 4.17 first time round. What's yours?
Today, we are turning the majority of our basil crop into pesto and freezing it for the long cold basil-less winter months. Jemimah and I make a fine team with chores like this.
Today, I am keen to finish my book, Kokoro by Natsume Sōseki. It is a sad and lonely book, but somehow draws you in.
What does today hold in store for you?
Today starts to look funny once you have written it a few times.
