Having the Day Off

Last evening, just before bedtime, I checked the SubFinder computer schedule.

The message said “No Jobs Available at this time” so I went over to another category and clicked the Do Not Disturb option for my number.  I really do not like having the telephone wake me up too early.

When my alarm buzzed at its usual time, I came to the computer and checked the schedule again, finding two openings.

There was one name for a TA who is a one-on-one with a student that I do not get along with.  I suppose I should make more effort, but I know the student has Special Needs with quirks and social problems, and today is not a day I feel up to dealing with it.  Sometimes I wonder if the Do Not Accept button will send an electric shock up to my elbow, but this is a chance I’ll take.

the other position is one I have worked before, easy enough for a Friday
However, when I clicked on it, there was a message saying another Substitute was considering, check back later.

I waited 15 minutes, while I read the comics, until just about the time I should be hitting the shower, and checked again.

What’s a gal to do with a day off?

I finished a crocheted cotton potholder begun yesterday at Yarn Group, then finished a baby hat which has been on the peg loom for a couple weeks already.  They will be going to the Mennonite Relief Sale next month.

I’ll begin the weekend chores early, and do a bit of grocery shopping.  There is a lunch at church this Sunday, and the announcement says for someone with my name letter of the alphabet to bring a dessert.

It has been awhile since I turned the oven on.
Good thing I have outside influences to keep my skills ready.

Somebody asked me for pictures, since I haven’t put any on the blog lately.  Actually, I haven’t had the camera in my hands for weeks, ever since we sent Lucas off on the train to see his sweetie.

I guess I’ll have to make sure the battery is charged and see what I can do to remedy the situation.

    An unexpected off day can really set off the imagination. But with all your abilities you would have no problem filling it. Hope you enjoyed it.

    Also I have to say I am again green with envy–you saw Coraline!
