Blue Lake is coming up quickly and it’s all I can think about right now. Never having been there, I have no idea if my expectations will come close to reality. There are so many things I don’t know…
My dad always used to say, “Plan your work and work your plan.” I could use a little of his brainpower right now!
WHAT am I going to teach these children? What supplies are there in the classroom? Are they the things I actually want to work with? Will I be in a constant state of ‘make do’ or substitution? How does the daily schedule really run? Yeah, I have the schedule in a print out, but…Will the students be wanting to learn or just putting in time ’till camp is over? Are the things I want to teach too simple…not specific enough…too cliche? And I don’t even care about where I’m sleeping or eating ’cause I know that’ll be covered.
Thoughts, plans and ideas just swirling and swirling and I can’t wait to get there and get busy!
In the meantime, I’m trying to start a project to take that will be hand work for me…and I’m just not able to concentrate enough to come up with anything. I’m doing a few painted leaves that may end up in a beading class kit, but I’m not totally happy with my results.
From too dark
to too light
and then my old, crinkly leaves broke! Made me done with that project!
I’m not in a calm, peaceful place today. I need to take some time to relax and think good thoughts…and maybe make 100 lists or something! Could be I’m just getting old and it takes me longer to plan things out! Hmmm….maybe I shouldn’t let the gray hair grow out just yet!
