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.

And so life gets back to normal.

My lounge room is a mess of works-in-progress and drying washing;

there were work samples to prepare for my students for an assessment task that they have to undertake;

in the afternoon I got together with some of the Scouts to do some badge-work … in which we (a) totally failed to work out where we were using backbearings,

(b) did some tent maintenance,

(c) allowed tent-maintenance to degenerate into sword-fighting with tent-poles,

(d) did some construction,

and (e) completed all of this under the watchful eyes of some hardworking, highly active leaders; 

before I bought a steak sandwich for tea;

and headed home to get stuck into preparing a caramel tart

and a stir fry for tomorrow night’s family dinner that I am hosting;

after which I wrapped up the day by reading aloud a chapter from Anne of Windy Poplars, an over-the-phone tradition with a friend of mine that is now into the fourth of eight books in L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series (and at this point I conclude the single sentence that makes up this 12-photo blog entry with a closing parenthesis and a full stop).

[The “12 of 12” project involves taking 12 photos on the 12th of the month. This provides the opportunity to get snapshots of different aspects of your life, from the mundane to the fundane. I have been doing this since 2009; this is the 105th instalment.]
