Good Sunday to you all. I’m not sure how I made it through the last couple of weeks. The end of the school year, progress reports, reorganization of our teaching teams for the fall and conflicts between staff members. A time that should be filled with joy and remembrance was instead unpleasant and stressful. Sad, really. I guess we are all ready for a break.
It is the day before the Summer Solstice and I have some time to stop and take a deep breath. We hope to visit the seashore and spend a few days in Vancouver, BC in July. I have things around the house I want to accomplish. Other than that, I plan to spend time with family and friends, take a whale-watching trip with my favorite four-year-old and his Mom, spend time in the garden and at the beach and read, read, read. I do have books on hold at the library, but do not have a “summer reading list”. Students and parents gave me a magnificent gift card to one of my favorite independent bookstores. Any suggestions for “must reads” for the summer?
I did finally finish and review A Place of Greater Safety and read a wonderful graphic “novel’ about bees. I am about to finish Black Water Rising and then will start The Makioka Sisters for the Japanese Literature Challenge. I wish you all a wonderful week.
