Five days’ worth of creativity – slow going, but I think I still have it!

Time flies…

This past year really kicked my butt.  Well, mine and the other 41 000 teachers in this province.  I spent the last year working with 28 students in a school filled with wonderful, caring, crazy teachers that made me feel right at home.  Once the strike ramped up and I was told summer session was cancelled (I was signed up to teach grade four/five math), I realized…I finally had some free time. 

This was terrifying.  No plans.  No structure.  

I spent a lot of time at the farm, helping my mother picking and sorting blueberries, blackberries, mulberries, and the seemingly endless de-stemming of choke cherries.  I dare say I ate more berries than my tummy was happy with some days.

Once I satiated myself with berries, I realized that I could once again pick up the mandrels where I left off all those months ago before life got too hectic.
