Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, can I get you a cup of coffee? Or tea? It’s still very early Saturday morning, let’s sit down and enjoy our beverages in my kitchen. I love watching the tomato plants grow a little every day. Next week I’m going to plant tomatoes with the kids at work. I can’t wait to watch them eagerly follow the growth of their own plants. We’ve saved milk cartons and printed each child’s name on them. When the weather is nice enough for them to plant them in the ground, hopefully at the same time as the plants are ready to be planted in the ground, they get to take their own plant home with them. We will plant some extra for our school’s garden (it’s very tiny.)
What’s going on in your corner of the world?
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I’ve been riding my bike to work every day except Tuesday. I spent Tuesday in the ski slope and figured that my legs could benefit from taking the bus that day. It’s been truly wonderful getting back to riding my bike, even though I’ve had to watch the ground carefully at all times, the ice is still pretty thick in some places. The day I spent in the ski slope this week was a little different, I usually have skis on, but this week I had a snowboarding school with the children that expressed a wish to learn how to snowboard. About 20 children that had never tried snowboarding before tried snowboarding for the first time that day. It was so much fun! By the end of the day I had a long list of children that also wanted to try, that I didn’t have time to help that day, they will get to try within the next 2-3 weeks. For safety reasons I only helped two children at a time.
Riding my bike to work this week I witnessed several amazing sunrises. I’d say that it has been a very good week so far, I am very grateful. I turned in the final exam paper for the class I’m taking on time. There is an oral exam seminar next week, where one student present their exam paper, and another student ask questions, and make suggestions about it. Next week I am going to do both of those things, presenting my report (it’s an analyse of a study within the field of subject-didactics; conversational genres in the teaching of literature,) and react to someone else presenting their report. It’s only the first class of the Degree of Master of Science, Main Field of Study: Educational Work. I am enjoying school immensely, perhaps mostly because it is really challenging..really challenging, like the most challenging thing I’ve done academically so far in my life. I have all the books for my next class that is starting the last week of March. I’ve started to read some, but my mind is on the ventilation of the final exam next week. I’m going to give my mind a break this weekend, and focus on my daughter and my home, maybe I’ll plant some early salad greens in containers at the balcony. I might read some tomorrow evening.
