Grateful for March Break

Processed with RookieThis 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!

      1. mmmmm – that sounds really good.
        I had dandelion tea last night – a student gave me some a while back and I have been waiting to dive in….
        and it was good.
        but today it is back to black
        hope your chai was delsih

  1. I know you work jolly hard, Colline, but these little breaks do seem to come round pretty often, don’t they? I bet it doesn’t seem like that to you. 🙂 🙂 More snow! 😦 We’ve had a few milder Spring-like UK days but it’s set to plummet again this weekend. Is it any wonder I fly south?

    1. After 2 and a half months, I feel I need a break. After the Christmas break, we hit the ground running with report cards and many deadlines. At least after this break, we have quite a while before the next set of deadlines.
      If I could, I would fly south too Jo. The warmer weather is definitely tempting 🙂

  2. I’m right there with you! Enjoying spring break. I’m visiting my son in KC, but the rest is just being home. Take care.

  3. Hi Colline, so many things to be thankful for, sad part is, I forget to do so. Thank you for the reminder that gratitude in both big and small things should be part of our breathing pattern — it makes life more meaningful. I pray that you’re back to work energized 🙂
