Some days when I’m sick, the DVD player is our substitute teacher. Other days I manage to set us on a better course*. The kids did their reading and their math this morning, and then we all settled into a variety of Good Things. Sandra did some knitting and drawing. Tias played outside and read Calvin and Hobbes.
This afternoon kicked it into high gear, with Sandra working on sewing the scalloped edge of a baby blanket, Tias painting his room**, while I was working on a sock made of leftover yarns.

**with Rainer’s help. The strike drags on.
