During the last week we have experienced temperatures that plummeted to -16C, icy Arctic winds and snowfall. Autumn took a back seat for a while during the time that Old Man Winter showed his face. As I walked outside or while I watched my class at play, I was grateful for the winter gear that I have bought in the past: my down-filled coat that reaches to mid-calf, my long boots that are lined with animal fur, my warm scarf and hat. Wearing these items of clothing makes it a little easier to bear the cold and I feel that the money I spent buying them was a good investment. Thankfully the ice-cold temperatures have eased a little but the next time they plummet, I will be ready.
What have you been grateful for this week?
