This week winter has returned to the city I call home. Temperatures are below zero and snow has fallen on the ground. The wind has an icy bite to it as I step on the salted sidewalks. This week, however, I am not standing outside on duty while the school children play. Instead when outside, I am on my way to Zumba or the grocery store. This week is March break – a week during which schools are closed.
During March break, many have flown south to sunny skies and warm beaches. I have chosen to stay at home and take the time off to relax. I am sleeping late, reading a few books on my TBR pile, and going to Zumba classes during the day. With my feet up on the sofa and a book in hand, I sip my tea and occasionally look out through the window at the flurries falling to the ground. I like knowing that I don’t have to go out of I do not want to. I like knowing that there is nothing that I have to rush out to go and do.
This week I am grateful for March break. I am grateful to have the chance to recharge my batteries so that I can complete the last stretch before the end of the school year. Slowing down for a while does me good – and gives me the chance to get some reading done!
