Yesterday I went through my notes and books and things and "took notes" in my Stone Soup Notebook for my classes this summer. That way I don't have to take a bunch of books with me ... just one notebook. ;o)
And of course, I worked on my scripts.
I went through my Shakespeare Text and finished locating where in the original text the text taken for this piece is - this way if something doesn't make sense to me (or the kids) at any given moment I can go in my full script and sort it out. :o) Haha! I'm still wondering about the narrators in this adapted version though ... they are the only characters who don't have true Shakespearian lines and so I don't want them to stand out. (If I were adapting it as she has, I would have given all of their lines to Puck who's already - in my the narrator of the story ... but I digress.)
And I sat and chatted with my Aunt and Uncle for a wee while ... and ya know stuff.
