Miss Sunshine turned 15 today. It really is a little bit difficult to get my head around the fact that at this time 15 years ago I was in hospital, recovering from a long and challenging labour with a tiny, perfect little girl beside me. She's still perfect. And she's still beside me. She's not so tiny anymore, standing proudly taller than her Mum. A mature young woman now, who loves life in an effervescent way. She is full of fun and humour no matter how frustrating she can be at times. I believe she's planning a trip to the zoo in the next couple of weeks with a couple of good friends. I love her idea of a good time!
In honour of her birthday I planned a favourite meal....along with the rest of the week's meals:
Monday: Roast chicken, vegies with homemade gravy and cherry clafoutis for dessert
Tuesday: Ricotta fritters, vegies
Wednesday: Rissoles, vegies
Thursday: Creamy pasta
Friday: Nigella's chicken wraps
I haven't gotten any further in my plans. No matter, it will happen before the meals need to be on the table.
I had to put together a presentation about my 'metaphor of teaching' for Uni this week. I elected to stick with powerpoint and upload it to a file sharing website for others to view. I'm really happy with the result. It really reflects my balance between the three learning styles. Words to read, narration to hear and pictures relating to each element of the task. I even found a way to include some of my quilt pictures :) I've just posted it to the tutorial discussion board...so we'll see how that goes.
Have I ever said how much I love studying?!
