If it's in, take it out; if it's out, put it in.

That's Jewel's developmental goal at this point in time. She had fun taking yarn out of my basket, and then walking around flapping the skeins around and then going back over and putting them back into the basket. She found all kinds of things that can be taking out, then put back in.

Misty, rainy, cool and overcast all day. My big score for the day was finding some pretty pillow shams at a consignment store.

Still pondering where I might go to for vacation during spring break. Where in the world is the best exchange rate for US Dollars? I don't know. I think I want to go somewhere I haven't been before and the Euro is definitely not a favorable comparison to the dollar. Hummmm. Where? I need something fun to look forward to.

than it was. Ever thought of New Zealand?
And how did you teach Jewel to just flap the yarn around and then put it back? Mine takes it out and unravels it and manages to get all wound up in it!
Have a great Sunday!
We have TWO days off!!!!

Ah, if like were so simple - take it out, put it in - we could all learn something from Jewel. Hope you had a good weekend and are all refreshed to tackle another week of teaching!

I recommend Turkey! When we were there hotels were reasonable, trains very cheap. I felt women (dressed conservatively) were treated with great respect. I don't know if you can get there cheaply, but it might be worth a look.
