Today is the last day for our homestay student. I hope he has learned more English than he had when he came. He says he does not have to translate in his head anymore. That is good. I ran him through a pretty intense program for a 12-year-old.
He did watch a movie every day. I was wicked and had him write about them this morning. He did a ‘best’ and ‘worst’ type of exercise.
I think he learned quite a bit this week. I want to get him to the Farmer’s Market this morning before we go see a garage sale. His parents are coming at noon to pick him up.
As for hooking…I was able to start another star yesterday. Plus I managed to take photos for my portfolio of a lot of the small rugs I have hooked since Exhibition. I accidentally let some slip out to shops before catching them with the camera. Ah well. I need to set up a routine for that. Thankfully I take ‘in progress’ pictures when I am done hooking, before the edges are finished. At least if I crop I have something to put in my portfolio.
Looking forward to a bit of hooking today. Want to finish my star. Should take a half hour. Then I do not know…maybe clean up a bit, maybe visit with a friend. I need to go to a local lumber store for more doweling for hanging my rugs.
