If we were having coffee, I would quickly welcome you in indoors. This morning when I stepped out, I was greeted with a white-washed world. What!?! you may say. Yes, it is supposed to be Spring but it seems like Winter does not want to let go its hold on the seasons.
As I am writing this post, snow is falling outside. I am so disappointed as the weather was perfect on Friday and I was thinking of putting away my boots. The thick falling snow flakes outside are letting me know that my hopes are dashed – and that I need to keep my hats and gloves in my jacket pocket.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I lost my ability to speak on Tuesday. The morning began with a husky version of my normal speaking voice and by the end of the day I had strained it so much that it was gone altogether. My aching throat encouraged me to stay at home Wednesday so I could rest it. Thursday I went into school and I used a lot of whispering and sign language to communicate with my students. On Friday, I am happy to say, my voice started coming back to me. It is now completely back with some mild itchiness. I am sure it will be strong tomorrow.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I practiced leading a Zumba class with some of my colleagues on Tuesday after school. What fun it was to dance with them! They were so supportive of me and assured me that they enjoyed themselves. I will practice again with them on Tuesday.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that practicing my Zumba moves with my colleagues gave me the added confidence to do the warm-up and a couple of songs this morning in front of the class I usually participate in. The added practice is not only giving me confidence, but is also ensuring that I make less mistakes with the choreography.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week I read a book that I have been looking forward to for months: The Rebel Mages by Laurie Forest. I went to the bookstore to get it as soon as it came out – and then I put it on the top of my TBR pile. I finished it yesterday afternoon and I loved it! Hopefully I will post a review of it this week.
If we were having coffee, I would wish you well for the upcoming week. My week seems routine As usual right now – but that may change. 🙂
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
