WOYWW 609: Teaching from Home Week

 Morning.  Joining in with the weekly Wednesday link up with Julia and the rest of the WOYWW crowd at Stamping Ground.  Please pop over to find out more.

It's my rota week for delivering distance learning from home so Tom and Peter are back keeping me company as you can see.  I am still doing the daily drawings but actually plan to find time to make a tag for the Tag Tuesday challenge - use a photo or part of one.  I have moved on to the inktober2017 prompts for the end of January and February and have found daily drawing prompts for the rest of the year by doing a google search.

I haven't had any problems with computer freeze so far this week so I hope that that continues.  I must admit that I am looking forward to the half term break already.  We have an INSET day immediately afterwards which has been given to us as a wellbeing day so that will extend the break too.  Stay safe everyone and happy WOYWW. 


  1. Hope you get your daily drawing done before classes! will be interesting to see how you interpret theprompt! Thanks for visiting already! Helen #?

  2. I take it a well being day is one that you stay at home for and is really an extension for your holiday. Good, about time teachers got a bit of recognition.
    Glad you are working from home this week and great to see your lovely drawings - so enjoyable.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  3. Thanks for stopping by Sarah. It's the middle of the night here and I could not sleep. Enjoy your drawings. I too started doing a few challenges. Schools seem to have started going back in person in Feb. Online if snow days. Hope is works out. Our hospitals are full, medics are overwhelmed. We've been in good health, but don't do much away. I've lost 3 close friends and my sister is now home but some bad days All Covid but had underlying conditions. Not much snow in our area but surrounded by ice and snow in Iowa. When no winds I enjoy a good walk for the fresh air and to exercise. Stay safe and Enjoy each day.

  4. Sounds like you and many others have constantly adapted to the new normal. Good to see Tom and Peter are regular visitors. I plan to get back into woyww and drop by more often :)

  5. Morning Sarah. Great drawings this week - you are so good at these little line drawings - well done. I trust your teaching from home goes really well this week - not long to half term now!! Glad you have that extra day - enjoy looking forward to it!
    Take care. God bless.

  6. I love the variety in your drawing challenge both in the prompts and the way you've interpreted them. Do you go in to the classroom the rest of the time or does someone else take over the distance learning? I've been blown away by what the schools are doing to keep the kids on track. Stay safe and keep smiling, Lisa-Jane #2

  7. I'm loving your daily drawings Sarah, I love seeing how you interpret the prompts, and the bird is particularly lovely.
    Hope you have a good week, stay safe and well,

  8. Are you finding the distance teaching is getting easier now everyone must be in the swing of it? I know it’s not the same as the classroom but it must be helping the students so much. I enjoy seeing how you interpret the prompts, it’s made me think what I would have chosen!m And how amazing that your BiL used to be a vision mixer too, small world!
    Hugs LLJ 6 xx

  9. Glad it will soon be your break-I have never seen my daughter so stressed as in these last 10 months. Love your daily drawings and look forward to seeing how you interpret each prompt.

  10. I had to smile when you said it was your week to teach from home. We were listening to the radio yesterday and I think some parents are starting to realise that teaching is not as easy as they thought and those poor teachers who are also parents are really having an interesting time! They were interviewing one lady and it sounded like murder was being committed in the background, she had three children all different ages. Take care and have a lovely woyww, Angela x16x

  11. Ha ha - the snake is the best one, he made me LOL. Hope the teaching delivery goes well, you must be an expert by now!! Happy WOYWW, stay well, stay safe, love n hugs Cindyxx #19

  12. Great drawings, your poison bottle is wicked! I would not have known what to do for division! Great idea, have a good week Angela #17

  13. So loving your daily drawings, especially the bird and snake. Happy WOYWW. I hope that you have a good week. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro x (#10)

  14. The expression on the snake's face is priceless! Your bird has an interesting expression as well! All of your drawings are awesome! I look forward to seeing them!

  15. Back again because I saw a comment you made about Amsterdam clear gesso. I only tried clear gesso once and it was really gritty. I didn’t like it and I wondered if Amsterdam gesso was gritty?

  16. Hope the teaching goes well and well done on the drawings, they are all great, Love the swift though.

    Take care and stay safe,

  17. Tom & Peter were my generation of Dr Who's as well - after Sylvester McCoy I didn't watch it so much and haven't seen any of the last three doctors at all. Maybe I should start watching them!

    I've found an old notebook and am going to start doing some doodles. Ten mins a day isn't hard, eh? I do need to pick up on my drawing skills a bit! Yours are really good, and inspiring. The sword is well done ( I should know, with my nutty hobbies). They're all well done, but the sword speaks to my soul... heheheh

    Friend request duly accepted.... ;) I warn you, my FB is a little crazy.... :D

  18. I'm glad you found lot's of prompts to keep you going ~ Love the banana :) Our school year is half over thank goodness, as it has been a horrid experience on this end. We may go in person the end of Feb. if our numbers stay down, we shall see! Take care ~ Love, Karen#27

  19. Sarah, love your drawings this week....the bird is my fave!!! Although, the banana looks quite scrumptious! LOLOL Glad you are getting an extended break! Don't we all need those from time to time! More time to craft! LOL Thanks, as always, for stopping by my blog! Blessings to you! Felicia, #28

  20. As always, fabulous drawings, Sarah! I really look forward to seeing them week by week. I think my favourite one this week is "ripe" - such a lovely stylish curly banana!

    Thank you for your visit. I am quite sure the blanket will be commandeered by the kitties at the earliest opportunity, and I can see my hubby taking up his station on the floor again lol! I shall lock myself away in Mum's bedroom in the flat and get on with the assembly when the time comes.

    Well done you, leaving delivery slots for those who need them. I have had a real struggle to get slots and I do really need them - most people are not nearly as considerate as you are. At least those customers who have signed up for delivery saver (paying for delivery up front) are allowed an extra week ahead to book a slot, but it means I am having to book slots a whole month ahead, and if I don't get on with it I can easily miss a week. The substitutions really make me laugh!

    Lily and Ruby are both asleep on our respective legs at the moment but if they were awake they'd say "meow" back!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  21. I love your washi tower, is it me or does it seem to be growing..??
    Glad to see your still finding time for you to carry on with the daily sketches. A well deserved half term break coming your way, my Son's girlfriend is looking forward to hers too as she has been in every day working with Keyworker infants, so many Teachers off scholl right now and with the new south african variant just discovered in the midlands it's caused extra panic around that area.. Think positive & take good care Hugs Tracey xx

  22. Thank you for your visit!
    Great drawings this week - the banana definitely took my eye! Glad you have found some more prompts!
    Happy WOYWW!
    Stay safe and keep well!
    I am hoping to visit everyone this week – unfortunately last week I just couldn’t make it…

  23. Oh sorry! I was sure I'd been! Like catching up with your Octoberink thingy. I've gone and lost the link to the guy I was following, his drawings were amazing, he did a sword for 'sword' too...coming out of the water. Dr.Who fan too! But I must admit I haven't been watching it for quite sometime. Hope you're well. Happy Crafting -Happy late WOYWW!? ((Lyn))#20
