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. 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 🙂
