Weekend Coffee Share: Already December!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I just woke up from a nap. I have been feeling exhausted the whole week and what I have been fighting has finally caught up with me. I have a headache, my throat is aching, and all I want to do is close my eyes. I was hoping I could avoid being sick but my body has decided otherwise.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the weekend ended with another snowfall. It looked so pretty when I stepped outside on Thursday morning. I love walking outside when the snow is falling: it is peaceful and and I enjoy the crunch of my steps as I walk on the virgin snow.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I cannot believe that there are only two weeks of school left before we break for the winter break. The time seems to be rushing by quickly. Next week is our school concert and my class is taking part. I do Zumba with my class as part of their DPA (Daily Physical Activity) when they do not have gym. For the concert we have chosen 3 songs to show the parents and we have been practicing them. The children are excited to perform them on stage. My intention is that we practice this week on the stage.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it was a PA day on Friday. In the afternoon, I took the opportunity to pop into the hairdresser and touch up my colour. I loved the way she dried my hair – it looked so pretty afterwards.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that on Saturday I received a wonderful surprise. Everyone loves bookmail – and the mail I received was from Harper Collins Canada: the publishing house that I read and review for. They sent a beautiful Christmas card with more ARCs than I had expected: 3 Young Adult and 5 Adult. I felt spoiled. I guess, though, that they are thanking me for all the books I read and review for them (whether I have received the ARC or not).

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this weekend I spent more time with my daughter bullet journaling. I am really enjoying this hobby and I think I will keep it up. I love the creativity of it as well as the time that I spend with my daughters around the table. It is a time that we chat, catch up and listen to a little music. Definitely something I want to keep doing until they no longer want to.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that now I am going to take some time to do a little marking – I must try and attempt to do a little of the work that I brought home to do this weekend! 😀 The upcoming week here looks cold. I hope that you stay warm and have a good week.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Your new look is very pretty. And snow, not too much, just enough to look festive. Stay warm and be well this week. I know that during this time of year it is easy to get run down. Have a good week.

  2. Hi C – the time is flying by a bit for me and also can’t believe it’s almost half way through December (well let’s not push it – there is a week til the 14th)
    I would tell you – over coffee – ☕️☕️That I got a little something on Tuesday – mostly gone now – but felt it – lots of vitamin c powder and extra soup (and sleep) helped!
    God luck with the round of books – and the hair is looking good –
    Oh and clever to ha r your students do some Zumba – it is so good for the brain to coordinate and remember – as well as the physical activity ☺️


    1. I am certainly dosing myself on vitamin C.
      I love Zumba so much that I thought I would share my love of it with my students. They do enjoy it – even though it takes a while for them to learn the dance and their co-ordination. It is cute to see.

  3. A terrifically productive week for you! I would let you know that it’s a mad dash to get holiday shopping done while entertaining out of town guests with a trip to The Kelly Clarkson Show!


  4. I hope you got some good rest this weekend, and feel better, ready for the new week. It’s crazy that it is only two weeks left of this semester!! Totally crazy 🙂 Where did the time go? Your hair is beautiful. I like it a lot. Thank you for the coffee.


  5. Hi Colline. Okay, it’s Monday and I hope you are either fully recovered or taking the day off to get more recovered.

    Okay, I try to avoid comments about a woman’s appearance because it can be such a mine field for a guy, but (he said, then paused to cautiously choose some safe words) I know you almost fully from our coffee shares and that tiny thumbnail photo from your blog and had to look back and forth a couple of times before I was sure that both were the same woman. Your smile locked it in. You have a great smile and I really like the new look.

    Blessings, and if still needed, quick and full recovery.


    1. Thank you sincerely Gary. I should really change that thumbnail as it is a picture from when I started blogging and quite a number of years have passed since then 😀
