Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share! Can I get you some coffee? Or tea? Or maybe some hot lemonade? This week we’ve had normal winter temperatures of about 10F/-12C. The photo above shows the hot lemonade served to the children (in my class) at our local nature school when we visited on Wednesday. It was a lovely visit. One of my colleagues and I took two buses with the children to get to this nature school. It was a marvellous adventure for them (I teach in a part of town with low SES. Most of them do not get to have these kind of experiences.) All the 5year old children were invited to a special Christmas celebration with the animals (pigs, sheep, goats, birds, squirrels, and cows) and the mythical creatures from our folklore that lives at this farm. It was a memorable day with interactive storytelling in a beautiful nature setting, a positive experience for everyone.
How is your week? I’d say it’s been a good week. It started out very intense with an important presentation at school on Tuesday (after my regular workday.) I got up at 4am on Tuesday, and started my presentation at 6.10pm. It went OK. I had done everything I could to prepare, but was pretty tired by the time it was my turn to have my presentation. I was suppose to be on my way home by 6pm, but everyones presentations took a long time. I missed my bus home (to icy to ride my bike,) and got home really late. Which led me to skip the Christmas party at work the next day (that I was really excited about. It was a big party with a Christmas dinner and live music with famous musicians.) I didn’t want to leave my children two nights in a row. The work-week still left me with a good feeling, and it’s the weekend now 🙂 …and only a few more days until Christmas break. I’m hoping to get ten days off for Christmas, that is what I’ve asked for.
I hope your week is fabulous! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend. I’m going to try to make my own pomegranate tea, and perhaps visit my garden plot and see what it looks like now. I passed by the area where my garden is situated while taking the bus to the nature school on Wednesday. It’s a little higher up, above town, and it looked gorgeous from what I could tell sitting on the bus. Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share.
