Today was the first of our ASL time– this is where Brad and I learn and practice ASL (American Sign Language). We have set aside about a half hour every week to learn and practice.
We learned the alphabet today (well, Brad learned it, I remembered it) and some mood signs. We learned a group of signs including anxious, nervous, scared, and frightened.
I noticed as we were practicing that Hestia was having a fit! She was jumping on me, pawing at me, laying down on my chest, etc.
I asked Brad what was wrong with her, and he reminded me that she is trained to respond to the word “anxious” because when I’m not doing well I often say “I’m anxious”. So poor Hestia thought I was really needing help as I was simply practicing my ASL! Too funny!
Here is the video we watched:
