If we were having coffee, I would offer you a warm drink out of the cold. The temperature has dropped overnight and we have gone from hot and humid to chilly breezes. The constant fluctuations in temperature make it difficult to know what to wear – and have caused a number of people to get sick (myself included). Today it is starting to feel like Fall – coincidentally today is the official start of the new season.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had quite a busy week. On Monday after school I went to an author event organised by Harper Collins Canada. I heard A. J. Finn speak about his debut novel The Woman in the Window as well as Mary Kubica on When The Lights Go Out. Both of these novels are psychological thrillers and it was interesting to hear how different their writing process is for the same genre of novel.
On Thursday night it was Open House at our school. On this evening, the parents have the opportunity to come in and visit our classrooms. I had the chance to meet some of the parents, and book a follow-up meeting with each of them. The sense I got from each parent I met was positive and I am hoping we can work well together this year in order to create a good learning experience for their child.
The next day I was exhausted, as I always am when I am at school for 12 hours straight. I came home early after school on Friday, just missing the big storm that damaged a number of trees in our neighbourhood. Today I am resting in the afternoon to be ready to get back into the swing of things on Monday.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my weekend read is A. J. Finn’s The Woman in the Window. So far it is thrilling and it is sure to keep me reading the entire weekend. I am sure that I will not want to watch too much TV this weekend.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
