Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at Eclecti Ali. It’s half-caff for me, with creamer and honey to boost my immune system. Not that I should worry, I’ve been social distancing quite well and wearing a mask in public.
Last night, I invited three teacher friends to a Zoom card party called Cards Against Quarantine. It is very cheeky, inappropriate fun! One of the gals lives in Hawaii now but is moving back this summer, so we talked a long time after the card game. I’m not used to staying up that late, but it was great fun. I’m glad I downloaded that game. Otherwise, it’s mostly work, work, work and streaming shows or movies these days. I do manage to keep exercising, though. I got my mile in this morning on the Gazelle. Got to stay healthy!
On the topic of health, I went for x-rays Thursday. I should hear from my doctor next week. I don’t think there is a tear, so perhaps what I feel is muscular. I’m steal reading about the mind-body connection. I am a personality type that holds a lot of tension in my body and often find it difficult to shut off my mind. Yoga helps, but I skipped it yesterday due to feeling limited with my arm. I am on the computer daily because of teaching online and have not spent much time writing my next novel. That will certainly come this summer when I have more free time! In the meantime, I bought playdough to play with and create things. I also plan to schedule more online card parties or ‘girls’ nights’ for sure!
School ends in thirteen days. I hope to plan a fun last day in a Live meeting. We discussed sharing poems and perhaps making one into a song. One student volunteered to play guitar and another to play piano in the background. I think it will be a melodious, joyful way to end this crazy school year!
I do hope you all are well and will have a great weekend. If you are interested in any of my books, check them out at https://www.amazon.com/Pamela-Schloesser-Canepa/e/B01E0KV716 or find my latest, a great place to start, at Malachi, Ruse Master
In a few days, look for my post about writing 9-11 and COVID-19 into my novels!
