Weekend Coffee Share: Hello Again

weekend coffee share logo hosted at parttimemonsterblog.com

If we were having coffee, I would welcome you with open arms. Yes, it has been a while since we have had a chat. Time seems to run on, doesn’t it? Days have turned into weeks; and weeks have turned into a month since I last sat down in front of my laptop and wrote a blog post.

My hiatus began with a malady and I took a couple of days off from school to recover. But even though I no longer craved to sleep continuously, fatigue was still my friend. Deadlines loomed: the curriculum had to be completed as well as the year-end report cards. One-by-one, I checked off all that I had to do until the last week of school remained. I then began cleaning the manipulatives in my classroom and ended the week by putting away the last binder on my desk.

The school year ended on the last day of June. I have said goodbyes to my students, reminding them that they are welcome to visit any time. I have wished colleagues a well-deserved rest during the Summer break. And I have put my feet up, prepared to relax. I look forward to the rest and relaxation of the next few weeks. Plenty of reading is on my agenda – as well as watching the recent seasons of Orange is the New Black and Marco Polo on Netflix. I plan to spend time with my family without the need to cut conversations short because of work pressures. And I intend to get back to blogging. I am sure that as the fatigue clears from my mind and I feel energised, I will have the motivation and inspiration to write.

If we were having coffee, our chat would be long and linger over what has happened with you over the past month. I hope that it has been a good 5 weeks.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have missed your coffee shares over the past few weeks! I am glad your school year is wrapped up nice and tidy and that you now have time to relax. Our school year ended on June 16th and my daughter graduated High School that evening. I am now trying to gett used to now having both my children out of public school and on to college! I have been catching up on my reading too. Can’t wait to hear more about your leisure time activities!

    1. What a scary thought – to have no children left in high school! I will be in your shoes in three more years. Unbelievable when I still remember bringing my girls home as infants.
      Happy reading 🙂

  2. Enjoy your summer!!! Teachers SO deserve it. You’re the third person I think to mention Orange is the New Black – I tried it but couldn’t get into it. I’ll have to try it again. I’m getting through Bates Motel right now on Netflix.


    1. Thank you so much.
      The series Orange is the New Black is not something everyone would enjoy. I like that the series focuses on women (for a change) and that the story is not one that is usually played by women. And then the story – once you get into it – is really good.
