If we were having coffee, I would welcome you in and offer you something iced. After a few cool days – and a couple of perfect ones! – we are back to high humidity. I was enjoying the cooler air and the fact we did not have to use the fans. Alas, it looks like we are in for a steaming hot day today.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have not been well over the last two days. Getting caught in the rain on Tuesday and then going into a highly air-conditioned place was not good for my body. An itchy throat and itchy eyes resulted (though the itchy eyes may be a result of my allergies). As I am still on break, I stayed at home and relaxed – and read a few more books 🙂
Speaking of books, I am almost caught up with my book reviews – you will see them coming this week. As I am typing, I have two left on my pile to review. I have read a number of very good books over the past two weeks and I hope that you will enjoy reading what I think about them.
On Tuesday I went to a series of talks organised by my school board for beginning teachers. I receive an invitation as I mentored a number of new teachers over the last couple of years. The talks were interesting – especially the one on guided reading. When registering, we received a gift of two picture books – one in English and one in French. I was happy when I saw the French one as normally I receive English books which I have to give away. The picture book looks like a fun read and I already know how I will use it for a writing prompt.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I met up with a friend of mine whom I do not see too often as she lives quite a distance from me. Our children played board games in the bedroom and we sat on the sofa for 5 hours and did not stop talking. Time passed by too quickly! We have set aside another day for our friendship before the summer break is over.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am very excited for an event that is happening this afternoon at the offices of Harper Collins Publishing Canada. I was on the waitlist for one of their events and was offered a spot yesterday. I have never been to one of these events for book bloggers and look forward to it.
That is all my news for now. Next week will be filled with getting ready for school. Have a wonderful rest of the day.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
