i can hardly believe that today is the last day of February!! How is it possible to be through two months already?

Teaching:

Ugh a child said something cute today and I don’t even remember what it was:(

We had an Aboriginal Education speaker come in and discuss community with out grade 1/2 classes today and I learned a lot! I liked how the lady had the children brainstorm parts of the community and then tied them to what existed in historical aboriginal communities. I like having AbEd come in for this type of lesson as I’m always worried about messing up all the Aboriginal content we now have in our curriculum.

We actually got to math today and practiced our doubles facts. The grade 2s loved that I referred to their work as level 2. It also helped that I had two new games for the children to play when done to practice their doubles facts.

This afternoon we brainstormed places and people in the community. It went pretty well and the children came up with a lot.

We also got to visit the K/1 class to see their science museum where they were displaying what they had learned about sound and light. It was a bit of a zoo, but my class learned a few things:)

My co- teacher and I were very efficient this morning and got our last report card written this morning along with our planning and the prep was done during the day so all we had to do after school was help set up gymnastics equipment. It’s annoying that a few teachers didn’t even bother to show up to help:(

Exercise:

I finally got out in daylight for a run. It felt like it’s been forever since I ran, though I suppose it was just Sunday. I think I do better when I run every day than when I take a break as today felt tough. It ended up being a fast pace though.

The park where I ran tonight, but on a nicer day:)

I just looked at my February calendar and I managed to exercise 93% of the days. I’m happy with that as I exercises 26 out of 28 days.

This month I have ran 81.2km, so I yet again didn’t make the 100km goal I had:(

I have done:

2km- 1 run

3km- 3 runs

4km- 7 runs

5km- 3 runs

6km- 2 runs

7km- 1 run

My goal was to not have any 2km runs this month, but last Sunday when I ran to coffee did that goal in, though I did find that I pushed myself a couple of times to get to 3km rather than stopping with a 2km run, so I guess it helped a bit. I think my goal for March will be to actually get to 100km as I haven’t made it yet!

Reading:

This evening I finished my current NetGalley book, One Summer In Paris by Sarah Morgan. I am slowly getting through all the books that came in at once:)

This book tells the story of Grace and Audrey and all the people their lives touch in one summer. While Grace is a mature 47 and Audrey is only 18, they share a lot in common. Their paths merge for one summer and they are able to help each other immensely to become the women they were meant to be.

This book was lovely! It is all about love and all the emotions that surround it.

I love how both Grace and Audrey need to find out who they truly are. It’s neat that Sarah Morgan explores the concept that this self discovery comes at different times for different people.

I think this would be a good book club book as it explores so many relationships and the idea that we help each other as we need it and friendship is a lot of give and take and propping each other up. Audrey at one point says the friend with the greater crisis takes precedence. What an awesome way to look at friendship.

The book is well worth a read! Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

In February I have read 10 books with 4 romances, 2 chick lit, 1 general fiction, 2 historical fiction and 1 children’s novel. While I rue the fact there’s no non-fiction in here, I think it’s a better distribution than normal🤣

Well I think I’ll now tackle the next library book.

Have fun!

  1. That sounds like an awesome book for a book club. It seems like there would be a lot of different ways for the discussion to go.

    February is a short month so you got a lot of running in for just 26 days!

    1. Yes it might be a better book than the one I’m reading now that is actually got Bookclub!
      I was still hoping to hit 100km, but maybe I can make one of it up in March while I’m on holidays:)

  2. That book sounds interesting. My BFF and I have known each other long than I’ve been married to The Squire, and seen each other through thick and thin. I don’t know what I’d do without her to laugh – and cry – with.

  3. I like that park you are running along the boardwalk – reminds me of Bishop Park, right down to the fancy lights. Hang in there – Spring is coming. (Fingers crossed.)

    1. Yes that is my usual park loop so I see it at least once a day. I don’t know how I got the area clear of people as it’s usually packed!

      1. I went to the park that looks like yours today and didn’t get to the boardwalk as the big bridge was iced over … they don’t use salt as it is a historical bridge so they are trying to preserve the original cement.
