If we were having coffee, I would welcome you with a smile and apologise for meeting with you so late. My excuse? I was reading a book that made me smile – and I did not want to put it down!!!
If we were having coffee, I would definitely offer you the iced version as it is still very hot here. The heat is making me feel lethargic and I do not feel the desire to do too much. I avoid sitting at the table to type on the computer – I would much rather sit in front of the fan and immerse myself in the books I have chosen to read. This week I am determined to sit down and write up some reviews of books for you to read – especially as I have recently read so many wonderful stories.
As I am telling you of stories, I wish to share with you the author event I went to yesterday. The event was organised by Indigo, a local chain of bookstores. The two authors on the panel – Tracy Banghart and Elly Blake – are Young Adult writers of fantasy fiction. I have not read their work yet but I enjoyed listening to them speak as they shared their writing process and what inspired them to write their story. I asked what they like to read when writing, and both of them said romance. Interesting. I am sure their novels will have a bit of romance in them. 🙂
Not much else has happened during the past week. I have exercised, read, and Skyped my mom. I did go shopping for a few items for my classroom (which teacher can resist?!?). I saw the perfect caddies that I have been looking for to use at my table groups. I have been avoiding the brightly coloured ones and have been on the lookout for wooden ones in neutral colours. I was so excited when I saw a possibility in a Michaels flyer (Micheals is a craft store). On Friday I ventured outside to go to the store and was ecstatic when I saw the perfect baskets.I took 6 of the baskets – five for the group tables and one for the table I will work at with the children. The best thing was that the store had a promotion on – two for the price of one – and I saved quite a bit of money. In addition to the promotion, I also got a teacher discount. 🙂
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that next week will be a little busier. It will be my last week off duty before I go into my classroom to get ready for the new school year.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
