The Sunday Post #80 – Weekly Wrap-up
Welcome to my Sunday Post / weekly wrap-up. Thank you to Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
In just over two weeks, I’m going to BEA! Can you feel my excitement? I’m sure I’ll have a lot of fun, and it’s going to be fantastic to meet authors and fellow bloggers, hang out with other book-lovers and just plain have fun! If you want to follow me on Twitter or Instagram, that’s where I’ll be most active while I’m in Chicago. I’m also going to co-host a round table at the Blogger Con on the Wednesday, where Katie @ Mundie Moms and I will be chatting about balance between personal life and blogging, how we make sure we don’t spend all our free time on the internet, but some with our family as well… So if you’re coming to the Blogger Con, please stop by at our table to say hi 🙂
This week was much calmer than last week, and it was nice to have a normal routine again. I worked my hours, graded some tests, and just started to prepare what needs to be done with my classes while I’m in Chicago. We’re slowly moving towards the end of the school-year, so I want my students to be ready for the year-end exams.
On Tuesday, one of the other teachers that works at my school came to one of my classes in order to observe me. It felt really weird, and even if we know each other a little bit, I was quite nervous just at the beginning of the class. I forgot about her being there, though, and just did my class as usual, and we’re meeting next week so she can give me some feedback.
Thursday delivered a shocking blow to me, when I learned that Prince has passed away. I have never really cried before when a celebrity died, but that changed on Thursday. Almost all my best memories from my early teens to now involve Prince songs in some way or another. I’ve had the privilege to see him in concert four times, from huge stadium concerts to a cozy one at the Montreux Jazz festival in 2013. I’m still having trouble believing it, and I’m very happy his music will always be here to keep me company in the future as well.
This week’s Freddy pics
I think you would all be disappointed if I didn’t share some of the cuteness that is Freddy 🙂 He’s getting really big, and he went to the vet on Monday to get his vaccines. He’s also starting to be ready for some longer walks, even if they tire him quite a bit. We had a fun early morning encounter with our neighbour and their dog on Friday morning. He was so funny running around and around, happy to be with another dog 🙂
