It’s already weekend again! We’ve had a four day work week here, Monday being a red day. It’s been windy all week, and around 40F. I’m doing laundry, and hanging it outside today, for the first time this year. Spring is in the air. We are suppose to get temperatures in the 60’s next week. 60’s and 70’s are perfect temperatures, if you ask me. How would you like your coffee today? Or maybe you prefer some tea? Weekend Coffee Share is a small(ish) virtual coffee date, with participants from around the globe taking place every weekend 🙂
Part of this weekend is going to be dedicated to writing educational plans for the rest of the semester. Starting Monday we are going to be outside. Parents are going to leave the children with a teacher that are meeting them outside, we are going to have our activities outside, and parents are going to pick the children up outside. Most meals are going to be served outside as well. Parents can not enter the school buildings as we just had a new code lock installed. Everything is going to be sanitised and we are going to try limit close contact between people (students/teachers/parents/other staff) by being outside. It’s going to demand some extra efforts from everyone, but I believe it’s going to be great.
Corona is getting a little more personal now as I have several friends with loved ones that are fighting the virus. There are more cases in the town where I live. It’s not the worst area, but the virus is more widespread than previously. Some people are really worried now and do everything they can to limit contacts (I’m in that category,) others are letting go of restrictions and ignore them completely; College students having parties, and younger children having playdates organised by their parents.
My daughter and I are limiting everything outside school/work to zero. The photos in this post show two of the things that have kept us the busiest lately, chess, and spring planting 🙂 How are you doing?
