On the other hand, I have a friend who is blaming all disruptions in personal patterns on climate change. I have taken this pseudo-scientific theory a step further: I posit that the unusually overcast, wet and cool summer following so rapidly upon a brutal winter with barely the transition of a very bizarrely fluctuating spring has disrupted my circadian rhythms. I am blaming the population spikes in frogs and household gremlins on climate change as well. I defy one and all to prove me wrong!
Anyway, today has been spent frogging the spiral border across the top and side on the right. I still have a bit more frogging to do, as you can see. It is rather tedious and I can only do so much before wanting to hit something or, worse yet, someone. Best to cease and desist while I am still in a relatively civilized state of mind. I then finished filling in the spiral border on the left and began work on the first floral motif on the right side. Admittedly, this isn't a great deal of progress but I am still wiped out from yesterday's Spirit Day with my 8th graders. Spending a full day [7:00 am - 4:00 pm] with 50 8th graders can wear one down. They have so much more energy than I do. I believe I exhausted my reserves yesterday. So, today has been an exercise in slow motion. It does seem the best way to avoid any further frogging.
