Welcome to the Weekend coffee share! Can I get you a cup of coffee? Or tea? It is Sunday morning in Sweden when I write this. So far it’s been a very good week indeed. I worked Monday as usual, or not exactly as usual, we had an educational day with our team. My kids have a fall break this week, and I had asked for time off Tuesday-Friday to spend time with them (particularly my youngest.) The work situation at my school is often chaotic and I didn’t find out until Monday that I actually got my request approved. It’s been wonderful!
My daughter had a couple playdates during the week, we’ve been taking walks, we even went shopping for new clothes one day (that doesn’t happen very often,) we’ve been baking, we had time to have long conversations about everything one can imagine, we’ve played with LEGO, and we read many books (sitting side by side in our couch, just hanging out.) I’ve read over 1600 pages for fun, not school, or work related this week! The week have served as a reset button, sort of.
That said, I did get up several hours before my daughter every day and worked really hard towards my degree, which also got me ahead of my schedule, a very nice feeling indeed. I believe the whole family is ready to take on these last, dark weeks before Christmas.
On top of it all a former student’s parents sent me this beautiful bouquet and touching card. Making the week even sweeter. It made me very emotional.
We received two deliveries from the crowdfarming projects we support, one box of mango, and one box of pomegranates. We still have some left, and they are absolutely delicious. It feels luxurious to be able to indulge in all that goodness. I am so grateful. We are expecting another delivery by the end of the month, 11kg/24lbs of organic oranges! Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share. How is your week?
