If we were having coffee, I would suggest that we step outside, to the balcony. At the moment it’s 33F outside, but around 65F at the balcony. If we were enjoying a coffee and a conversation we would sit in the comfortable chairs, and indulge in the delicious coffee, fully enjoying the moment we share. I would listen to everything that is going on in your world. After you told me about you, I would tell you that I am so content and happy about this week.
It was the first week back at work after the Covid battle. It was great to be back. There was a lot of things to take care of, but I had done everything I could from home, so coming back was not all that stressful. If you’ve been following me for a while you know that I am a kindergarten teacher at a school with a ski profile. This week was the first week of the season at the ski slope with the children. It is always a lot of planning and preparations going on before bringing a new group of children to the ski slope for the very first time. It is so important that everything goes well, that the children have a great time, and that the parents feel comfortable with us taking the children to the ski area. The goal is to leave everyone with a feeling of wanting more! (Which we will deliver every week as long as there is snow.) The children are 4-6years old, some have never been skiing before. The first time at the ski slope was a great success, and I couldn’t be happier about how everything came together just like we planned.
This weekend I have been writing a report for my school (Degree of Master of Science, Main Field of Study: Educational Work.) The report was about discourse analysis. I mentioned one of the books I studied last week. I finished reading all the literature a week ago, but felt like I had to reread some of it, and watch some lectures one more time, before writing the report. School have always been easy for me, but this is a real challenge. I am happy with how the report turned out in the end though, and that is probably why I am so relaxed now. Can I get you a refill on that coffee?
I have been sitting at the balcony for a while now, meditating and planning the container garden I am going to have this spring/summer. I planted a few tomato seeds last weekend, and the little seedlings are starting to emerge. They are in my kitchen window, and I got some grow lights for them yesterday. They are probably going to be inside for another two months, and then move out to the balcony (it is like a screened in sunroom.) I would say that last years garden was successful, but a little too crowded. I am going to try to have less pots this season. I have some plants that I am trying to overwinter, we will see how that goes; fig trees (they survived last winter so I am hopeful,) black currant, red currant, olive trees, a lemon tree, garlic, strawberries, bell pepper, and some herbs. I am only going to add a few tomato plants, basil, oregano, and different types of salads. The different salad greens, and herbs, are going to be companion plants in the other pots I already have at the balcony. Are you going to have a garden this year?
