Weekend Coffee Share: Reading and Things

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that yesterday was the perfect day weather-wise. This morning was a bit chilly but at least the sun is shining. We are so ready for the warmer weather! The kids too – the weather has been perfect to take them outside to play, and they have eagerly gone outside for longer recess breaks. We have been stuck inside for too long and are now eager for days to take in some sun and feel the warmth of the sun on our bare limbs.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that last Sunday I took part in the readathon organised by the folks at Harper Collins Canada. I spent the day reading along with others online and taking part in the prompts and discussions on social media. It was such fun to connect with other readers and to see their response to the prompts. Even though I did not finish my novel ( a 400 page historical fiction), I put a serious dent into it. If you want to read more about the event and have a look at my photos, you can go here to see the post.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week has been one filled with assessments at school. I have been testing the children in one area of the curriculum every day as this week as I need to begin writing the report cards. It is a stressful time for us at school and one that I look forward to ending. Once the report cards are done, the atmosphere at school will definitely be more relaxed. In addition, my planned tasks for the year with the children are almost done and then we can move onto more fun things.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have also been practicing for my practical exam which will take place next Saturday. The exam is the final step towards my becoming a group fitness instructor and once that is done, I will have completed one of my New Year Resolutions 😀

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I cannot believe that it is already June – the months seem to have flown by! This month will fly by too – before I know it, the school year will be over, and my youngest will have graduated from high school. But until then, I will enjoy the passing of days. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, have a wonderful week, and speak to you next Sunday.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Congratulations on your (almost) New Years achievement. It sounds like a wonderful new adventure for you. Our teachers have also been working their way through assessments. They must feel endless! Enjoy your week.

    1. The assessments are endless – and with the young ones you have to stop as soon as they get restless. They will be done by the end of the week so that I can use the PA day to complete my marking.

  2. At least you have a lovely long holiday coming up to enjoy, Colline. I miss long holidays although I do know that teachers have to do some planning and prep during holidays. Good luck with your test, do you plan to teach after you have passed? I taught in a gym for a number of years before I had my boys.

  3. Hi Colline. Yea, I know it’s a bit late for a visit, but it’s been a wild time on my side. It sounds like things are going great for you and wow – your youngest almost done with high school. Let me guess, didn’t it just seem to fly by? I miss our 3 kids high school days. I work from home and we home schooled them so I got lots of time to see, hear and interact with them, more so than most dad’s I know. Precious times. Priceless memories.

    I did manage to get one more story posted to my collection and hope you’ll find a few minutes to check it out. It is about a gal I dated in the mid 1970’s and how I helped her create an important memory – only I did not know until much later just how important it was to her. you’ll find it connected to my coffee share for last week.

    It’s amazing – the magic stuff life throws at us sometimes.


    1. I decided against home schooling my children as I was the one who needed to interact with adults. They have turned out well as we have been lucky with our local schools.
