    I finished rebedding the coop and moved the pullets. They seem pretty happy.

    now I need a shower and then I can make pie and vacuum while it is cooking.

    So, I succeeded at pie and vacuuming.

    technically I have about two hours before bed that I could start my homework, but I will probably just clean up all the dishes and sog. It is too late in the day for me to start something creative.

    My creative is making copy cat broccoli cheese soup like Panera. Super yum. But I did make a hat for grandbaby this weekend and am working on a matching little sweater. I have other things I should be doing, and I am not doing them.

    Yesterday I practiced violin and cello. I made zero progress on mitten, but I did the bag switch.

    Today I will

    play on new computer half hour
    knit earlier in day for half an hour when I can still see
    work on Pachelbel canon and learn 5 more measures (am going super slowly!)

    I am simplifying my life by:

    1. Now that the temperatures are colder smelling my clothes before I put them in the hamper to make sure they really need to be washed.
    2. When daylight savings time arrives and I can see better in the morning I will explore a shortcut to work that a coworker told me about.
    3. Reducing outdoor chores without a corresponding jump in indoor chores so that I have time to just relax and enjoy being rather than doing. It's the closest I can get to hibernation.

    Well, I did not throw pots at all, unless you count throwing a wet chuck for trimming - that did at least involve centering.

    but I spent almost an hour in the studio and I finished the pieces I started in class last week - “finished” is a relative word, I doubt I will fire any of them, but I am learning a new skill.

    halloween decorations are spread out all over the place - the SAD is bad today and deciding is too hard.

    hippos look doubtful.

    I did not do ANYTHING on my list.
    Today woke up to find everything covered in snow.
    This is NOT my favorite time of year. Wish I could just go back to bed.

    Okay, I have three for today:

    Grade four essays
    Spend two hours on electronic gradebook
    Walk and stretch

    Only the walking is really a pleasurable thing, but I'm a stage in my semester (I'm a teacher!) where I'm feeling totally overwhelmed and panicked about grading, so just giving myself some concrete goals for moving steadily forward on a busy day helps allay the panic a bit.
