I am now at the end of a two week Spring Break holiday and I am happy to celebrate time to . . .
Do the things I don’t always have time to do! Like:
Reclaim my garden from winter’s coverings and a few years of post-reno neglect. I know that the gardening bug has bit me again full force because my head is full of thoughts like this:
- “If I make a big fruit salad, I will have more peels to put into the compost . . . “
- “This rain is so good for the plants I just divided and transplanted.”
- “How should I mark where I want to put bulbs in this fall?”
Tackle the to do list This week I cleaned my closet, organized kitchen drawers, compiled receipts and sorted clothes my children have outgrown.
Visit the bookstore! I love nothing more than hours at the bookstore (Kidsbooks here in Vancouver is one of my very favourite places) to explore. I inevitably lose my children numerous times. My daughter is pretty easy to find. She is usually nestled into a corner reading – lost only in a book that has captured her.
Read a novel with my children and keep reading when they beg for one more chapter 🙂
We are now just chapters away from finishing the highly engaging final book in the Ascendance Trilogy by Jennifer A. Nielsen – The Shadow Throne.
Write posts that have been swirling about in my head. This week I wrote a post called What also happens here? This post addresses what we don’t often write about as teachers – the upset in the room.
What have you celebrated this week?
