High Five for Friday

It's Friday again, how can it be? I'm definitely not complaining, but it doesn't seem like a whole week since last Friday. Anyway, linking up again with Lauren for this post and telling my week's highlights.

1. Getting some procrastinated stuff done

I am such a procrastinator. Always been, I guess always will be. On Tuesday I was in a situation at work, where I had only one lesson to teach that day, because three of my groups were on an outing with their teachers and one other change of plans with another group. My lesson to be taught was from 1.15 pm to 2 pm. If that was all, I just could've gone to work arond 1pm. But we also had a staff meeting at 8.30 am to 9 am. So I had hours to spare, in fact four of them. I decided to tackle some of my tasks that I had been avoiding and got a lot of done. So it ended up being a really good and productive day!

2. Knitting

I do actually know that I said knitting last Friday too, but I've just really got back to it and love it. I'm making a zigzag cowl and using three different colors and I love how they go together. It's also being really fun to notice that it's really easy to make the knitwork zigzag and it looks really cute. So continuing with this pastime.

3. My new layout and style

I started thinking the bright green leaves are not for this season and changed up my header and the colors to go with it. I also changed the layout into two main columns instead of three. I'm really liking the result.

4. Rewarding feedback at work

I did something different while teaching my 6-graders yesterday and I got really encouraging feedback from most of them. It made me really happy hearing them they liked it and learned more because of it and got me all encouraged to do that sort of things more with them.

5. Swimming

This hasn't happened yet, but I'm hoping I'll have to make it happen, when I write it here. I've been wanting to go to the swimming hall to swim for exercise and it just hasn't happened. Like I said, a procrastinator. I'd really like that though, so I have a plan to go today after work. I know I will be pleased afterwards. So keep your fingers crossed for me that I'll make it!

That's it this week! What did you enjoy this last week?


  1. Love the new header! I used to change my header ALL THE TIME until I found sometihng I finally liked. I've had it for almost a year, though, and now I'm sick of it again. Oh, the blog world! Just found your blog and have enjoyed getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!

    1. Thanks for the comment, and thanks for the compliment! I'm proud to say I took that photo in my header :) I guess I'll change it again when winter sets in, but with the little frost, it can stay until we get snow :)

      I'm glad you like my blog! Thanks for being a follower! I've been to yours and follow it in Google Reader. It's nice reading experiences of another teacher :)
