Anyhow, the poetry reading went well. It was set up with some clear Christmas lights, some cappuccino scented candles and we snapped and murmured "cool, cool" after each reading. Elena did great, although she later told me she was very, very nervous, but knew it "had to be done".
I did get the dye off my skin (although I noticed the nails are still tinted a pinkish/red color)-using Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap-only took one scrubbing with it too. I resort to using that when I am out of my handmade soap. The Bon-Ami did okay for getting it off the counter, but not so well on my hands. Apricot oil didn't do a good job either. I've done the nail polish remover before, but it tore my hands up and alcohol didn't work last time either. And yes, as soon as I walked into the classroom one of the kids asked me "Why are your hands all red like that?"-so see, it was noticeable.
I still haven't untangled the mess of yarn yet, it should be dry now,but I haven't checked it.
My pool supplies came in a few minutes ago-of course rain is scheduled for this weekend and it's about 70 today (cooler then it has been) and will be through the weekend. Never fails.
Gotta run, the bus should be coming any minute now.
