Weekend Coffee Share: A First Step Achieved

Join us for some coffee time!If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it is COLD outside. During the past week we have had snowfall, freezing rain, icy sidewalks and patches, and then snowfall again. Tomorrow more snow is predicted  – an event that small children will enjoy very much I am sure. I predict that many snowmen and forts will be built in school playgrounds. The children will come in from recess rosy-cheeked and beaming with happiness. I do not enjoy the cold too much when I stand outside supervising them at play but what I do enjoy is seeing the children enthusiastically play with what has fallen from the sky.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I completed my report cards last week. Tomorrow I will print the draft and they will be read by the administration at our school. Soon they will be sent out to the parents and I will be meeting up with them to discuss their child’s progress. And soon the busy time at school will be over. After mid-February the deadlines will be fewer and I can concentrate on working with my class.

This weekend, I worked towards what I have been thinking about doing for a while: I attended the basic training to be a Zumba Instructor. I am not sure where this journey will take me but I am ready to take the steps. I enjoy dancing in Zumba classes so much and have been extremely disappointed that so many classes at my local gym have been cancelled. My thinking is that at least by working to be an instructor, I can still get to dance to my favourite rhythms. My body is currently aching after a full day of exercise, and my brain is still swirling with all of the information that I have received. I need a few days to process and to figure out how I am going to put into practice what I have learned.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it is nearly the end of the weekend and I am tired and ready to go to sleep. I am looking forward to the upcoming week as I will be attending the OLA Super Conference  during the last part of the work week. I had such a good time there last year that I decided to attend this year as well.

I wish you a wonderful week ahead. May it be filled with things you love doing.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. I love a good conference. I am not familiar with the super conference. It does sound exciting. We are supposed to get 5-8 inches of snow here so I do now know what tomorrow will bring. I hope an eLearning day!


  2. The exercise thing sounds like it’s worth pursuing, if you really enjoy it. Do you like doing it by yourself, also, or is it best done as a group exercise? Hate it when the stuff I like most seems to dwindle and then die away.

    What I am most looking forward to, the coming week and continuing through February, is the haiku-a-day challenge (NaHaiWriMo) with prompts on their facebook group (page?). Shortest month, shortest poem. I seem to write more of everything when I have a formal prompt to … write to or find another alternative, if I don’t like the prompt that’s provided.

    Best wishes to you for your activities, this week!


    1. Zumba can be done on your own in your living room following a DVD. I started like that. But the best is to go a live class and dance with others. The energy can be amazing.
      Enjoy your poetry writing month – it sounds like you are looking forward to it.

  3. You indeed have a very active life, and that’s great – there are so many ways to motivate ourselves because the whole world is an adventure – good luck with your training!


  4. Jeez, you dont stop! I always wanted to be a spin instructor but cannot figure out how to fit it all in. Enjoy! Have fun in the snow.

  5. If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am over the summer heat in Melbourne – 37 degrees Celsius today and again tomorrow. I would tell you that I started back at work today after our summer break and the power was out so no air conditioning. We were very grateful when it did turn on again.
    I would tell you that our students are starting back tomorrow and that I am teaching 5-7-year-olds and am feeling a little nervous because I have changed campus and don’t know what to expect.
