Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, can I get you a cup of coffee? What a week! I’ve worked as usual, and I’ve had a gazillion parent-teacher conferences every day of the week.
On Thursday evening, after work, I took the bus to Borlänge (a neighbouring town) to pick up new glasses. I have a subscription for glasses, that are being recycled, and reused. This time I picked up two glasses for work/every-day-use, and one pair of sports glasses for riding my bike. I picked them out a couple weekends ago, and now they were finally ready. I am very happy with them all, but I already know that I will be using the one furthest to the right in the photo (below) the most. I feel very good about the sports glasses, and that they are going to make my bike rides safer from now on. The glasses in the middle will be my “business” glasses, for formal occasions when I have to be an adult. LOL.
Last night (Friday) our neighbours arranged a party in our huge community greenhouse. It was a nice party, with good food, and great conversations. I have very kind neighbours. I enjoyed the evening, so did my daughter.
Today my daughter and I went to an open house at the middle school she is going to attend in the fall. It seem to be a great school. The teachers are originally from many different countries, and I really like that the students get to meet different ways of thinking, and being at school.
Every day this week I’ve been writing a little bit on my final exam assignment for the class in Philosophy of education that I am taking right now (as a part of my Degree of Master of Science, Main Field of Study: Educational Work.) The final exam assignment is due on Wednesday, and I am hoping to finish it this weekend. I still have ways to go. My title is The school of the future – The educational utopian vision to fight the climate crisis. It’s my ideas of how to make the school system of the future be more beneficial both for the students and for our planet, based on classical educational ideas by Dewey and Platon, mixed with a modern way of thinking, while honouring practical knowledge from the past.
Next week I’m only going to work three days and that is going to be LOVELY! It is going to be three very intense days, but after that I am going to rest and enjoy some gorgeous spot in nature. In the best of worlds I’m getting both of my kids to think that they want nothing but to enjoy the weekend on a camping trip. We’ll see. ..
Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share. I hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend! What is going on in your corner of the world? Have a refill on your coffee and tell me about it!
