If we were having coffee, I would greet you with an Easter wish. The weekend has been busy so far and today I am able to slow down a little. I am feeling quite tired at the moment as I did not have too much sleep last night. My husband and nephew are working tomorrow (Monday), so we decided to have our Easter get together on Saturday evening. That way, we could socialise until late – which is exactly what we did!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I decided to cook one of my husband’s favourite meals for dinner yesterday evening. The meal is a chicken dinner from my French cooking recipe book. I cook the chicken in white wine and add mushrooms and tomatoes in addition to the herbs. It is delicious with rice and a salad. To go with the meal, we had a South African wine that my nephew had found near to where he lives. For dessert, I tried my hand at making mini milk tarts (a South African dessert). They went perfectly with the fruit and cream.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I did not spend all day Saturday cooking and getting ready for our family dinner. I also spent some time reading. I am currently on track for the book pledge (I have pledged to read 75 books this year). It is interesting to see my progress on the 50 Book Pledge website – I love how the books are lined up on a ‘shelf’. If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my week at work leading up to the Easter weekend was pleasant. I still had three children missing from my class as they were still on vacation. It is a pity as they missed a part of the inquiry that we are doing which children normally enjoy. I enjoy this part too as I like seeing how creative my students can be when they build with blocks.
In the upcoming week, the children will have even more opportunity to build – with blocks and with wood. Hopefully all of the students will have come back from any family vacations.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I will hide the Easter eggs for my children this afternoon. Last year I did not buy chocolate for a hunt and they were upset with me. Even though they are now in their late teens, they still want the thrill of the chocolate hunt 🙂
If we were having coffee, I would tell you to enjoy the rest of your weekend – and to not eat too much chocolate!
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
