Weekend Coffee Share: March Break


Good morning, I hope you have had a wonderful week. I have – filled with plenty moments of relaxation 🙂

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have enjoyed the lie-ins I have had this week snuggling under the covers while it is still dark outside. It helped that we had mostly overcast and rainy weather – the morning rays did not awaken myself or my children too early. I do feel rested and my cough is not too frequent. During the day I took other opportunities to rest whether it was to watch Netflix or to read.

scandal-twitter-aviIf we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have finished watching all the episodes available on Netflix of the TV show Scandal. The show centrees on Olivia Pope, a woman who runs her own crisis management firm in Washington DC. The story is interesting with quite a few twists and turns. I had been watching an episode every night and, during the school break, I had the chance to finish watching all the episodes that are available. While watching, I did some crochet on the blanket that I am making for my daughter.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I spent many hours on the sofa this week reading. I completed The Racketeer by John Grisham, began and completed Motive by Jonathan Kellerman, was entralled by Lisa Jackson’s Fatal Burn, and have begun The Outside Circle by Patti LaBoucane-Benson. The graphic novel has been recommended to me by my daughter. She picked it up at her school library and noted that it has been nominated for the White Pine award – an annual literature award sponsored by the Ontario Library Association to encourage reading among teenagers.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week I took the opportunity to tidy away some things that had been dumped on my table. I found a spot for them and cleaned up the mess. I do admit to feeling better about the space every time I pass it now. 🙂

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I did a bit of planning this week for my lessons and that I managed to plan the entire week. It feels good to be a little ahead. I don’t know for how long it will last though as the day-to-day responsibilities start piling up quickly. Teaching a new curriculum (let alone two) does make for a very busy year.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I plan to enjoy the rest of the weekend and look forward to our family dinner tonight. (Yes, my husband will be cooking!) Enjoy your week. May it bring alll that you wish for.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. You must be quite a fast reader, Colline. It usually takes me a couple of weeks to read a book, but I seldom read for more than half hour a day. Annoying sometimes when it’s a book I’m really enjoying but so much else gets in the way. 🙂


  2. I would tell that I have read all of Jonathan books and find them excellent. I do enjoy Alex Delaware and his homicide partner. It is nice to have your lessons plan ahead even if events cause you to change them.


  3. I’d tell you I’m in NYC visiting my sister this week and then we’ll drive to Ohio to see two of my kids and their families for Easter. A fun week. Having coffee with you would be nice.

  4. Your week sounds wonderful and mostly relaxing. I have not watched Scandal but several people have recommended it so maybe it’s time to put it on my Netflix list.


  5. Sounds like a good week!

    I love Scandal…I’m watching season 5 as it airs just now, and although it’s not quite as strong as those first 2 seasons, it’s still a good show. You should try How to Get Away with Murder, too.

  6. Sounds like a wonderfully relaxing week, even if you weren’t feeling your best. How did you like The Racketeer? I’ve always been a big John Grisham fan but I haven read that one yet. Right now I am reading Brooklyn, which is quite good. When I’m done I’m planning on renting the film so I can enjoy that as well. Hope you have a great week!


      1. The author’s name is Colm Toibin. He is an Irish writer and the story is about a young Irish girl who comes to live in New York right after WWII. So far it is a very sweet tale.


  7. Like the sound of your relaxing week and well done getting through all those books. I had quite a busy week last week what with floods, a medical appointment and my daughter’s 10th birthday party. I could use a week in bed reading and whatevering. Bliss!

  8. Sounds like you had a lovely, relaxing week. I haven’t watched “Scandal” yet. We’re watching “Doc Martin”–a British TV series about a London doctor who decides to practice in rural Cornwall. Great look at small town life in the UK.


  9. I’m taking the day off today. Staying in bed. I am trying to catch up a bit on blogging and hopefully I will get a chance to do a little reading.
