The Friday Focalize

Reminding myself of the definition
Focalize means 'to focus something'--in this case, my life.

Winter term is wrapping up
My students have submitted 80% of their work and all the remains is a group presentation next week. Over ten weeks, students in this class took two exams, did four written case analyses, and did a group presentation. Individual work, that's 500+ pages of written work for me to read (30 person class). I am a strong believer in having multiple assignments, but I always forget how it bogs me down.

Spring break ahead
We'll go out to the coast for a while, but I have to make a quick trip to Dallas at the end of Spring break for a conference.

More stitching
This is fun. I think I am needing to knit some cables though, so will cast on for some cable socks. I think sometimes I need a little knitting break!

Brain. Not functioning.

I'm not doing a lot of focalizing, am I?

I just love your embroidery! It's so cute & colorful. I also love that the kid came with color coded stamping for you to follow. Granted, I haven't embroidered since the early '80's but I've never seen that before. Looks like it would make the instructions much easier to follow.

Love the stitching and I know what you mean about needing a good knit!
(Brain focalize-what's that?!)
