So the first topic of today's post is regarding Julia's "heritage" days at school. She never ceases to amaze me at how hard she tries to meet everyone's expectations! Very sweetly the teacher allowed her to have first claim on a country to do her report....duh! All weekend she plugged away at her research and on Monday she started her 'note cards". Now the teacher had not specifically defined 'note cards' so we got creative! We printed off pictures from Google and laminated them with her 'script' on the backside. Then on Tuesday she called in the troops...literally called Auntie Peggy and the cousins over so she could have a "large" audience to practice in front of before having to go before her class.
On Wednesday I went over a little early to help her get on her traje.
She knocked it out of the park!
Now all that's left is the International Food Fest which is tomorrow's lunch at school! We tried out our recipes tonight....BANANAS DULCES ROCK!!!! These will be making a return visit! The rice and beans were okay but we're kind of a spuds family.
Now for the hematoma portion of tonight's post! Those of you with squeamish stomachs need to leave now!! For the rest of you, I've been fighting a sore back lately and in a bid to banish it before a hectic work week I doubled down on the Naprosyn and Motrin...leaving me with one heck of a gastritis!! Feeling absolutely miserable I decided to see if the hot water and whirlpool jets would help.....and ended up more miserable!!!
In trying to stand up from the tub, my feet slipped out from under me and I instinctively put my arms out to flail...and they flailed alright! Right smack against the side of the tub!!!!! Now my stomach is recovered but my sore back has been joined by a sore arm. Oh, and I caught a cold during all of this too so my aching throat and chest congestion aren't appreciated. Something about that darn birthday has made me begin to feel reeeeeeeeeal old.
Coming soon...lots of sewing pictures!! Added several more outfits to Etsy today! Yes, Lynda I'm working on finding fabric for a shirt for Peter! I'll be on that this weekend!!
