Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

[I’m writing this up more than four months after the event, and I pretty much have no recollection of this day or why I took some of the photos. You may take some of the descriptions with a grain of salt.]

A friend and her family stayed at my place overnight because one of her children was playing in a rock band challenge. The lounge room turned into a spare bedroom.

At work I needed to solve/design some problems for a maths competition paper I was writing.

In the evening I had Scouts.

Some of the Scouts needed to finish planning a hike that they wanted to do.

I think we may also have done some cooking on Trangias (or else this is just a random photo of a Trangia!).

And others of the kids did “crate-stacking”, which involves building a tower of crates while simultaneously climbing it (safely suspended from a harness and rope attached to a ceiling beam).

My car is full of junk: gardening tools from helping in my friend’s garden, tarpaulin for no reason that I recall, and big tennis ball because it is flat and needs to be replaced for Scouts.

Vegemite toast for supper (and notes to self on my portable To Do list).

Straightening a cupboard door that had become lopsided and wasn’t closing properly (and feeling pleased with myself for figuring out how to do it!).

As was the case in May, I am still reading a chapter from the Anne of Green Gables series over the phone to a friend of mine in the evenings, but now we are up to the fifth book (Anne’s House of Dreams).

I did not read aloud the chapter of a thesis from one of my students.

And then I caught up with the latest episode of Anh’s Brush with Fame, in which comedian and artist Anh Do interviews and paints a famous Australian.

And that’s 12. [The “12 of 12” project involves taking 12 photos on the 12th of the month, thus providing the opportunity to get snapshots of different aspects of your life. This is the 109th instalment since 2009.]
