A 5-day break in routine

I've been having a rather peaceful extended weekend. Since a day off was given for Mosem last Tuesday and Meloud on Wednesday, I decided to take Thursday off too. That along with my regular days off; Friday and Saturday, have given me a well deserved break from routine.

For the most part I've been relaxing, making beef jerky (gadeed), doing a bit of shopping and some spring cleaning (dejunking old papers and going through my desk).

As work never stops for me, I've been working on a lesson plan for the next Movie Night. I've decided on the film Into the Wild which is based on a true story. There is also a reading/speaking lesson in the pre-intermediate Headway book (unit 10) about the story that many of the students are familiar with. The movie's a bit on the long side but the scenery is beautiful and because the pace is a bit slow I think it might make it easier to follow. There isn't much foul language to worry about and just a few skin scenes to fast forward over.

This afternoon is more shopping. The girls never seem to have enough clothes, shoes or accessories and before every wedding they insist on refurbishing their wardrobes. We have lots of weddings coming up so their closets will be kept full and my pockets empty.... sigh....
