Coffee & Swearing
This meme pretty much sums it up. There has been a lot of coffee, and a fair amount of swearing this week.
The school where I work reverted to 100% online learning this week. The positivity rate in our county is rising at an alarming rate, and student and teacher absences at my school spiked over the course of just a few days.
We got a message on Sunday evening stating that kids should not report to school on Monday morning, and teachers began the scramble to be ready to teach 100% virtually.
Although the first few days have gone really well, I am not one who does well with surprises. I like to have time to plan and prepare. I think we all knew this time would eventually come, I just wasn’t expecting it quite so quickly.
Nonetheless, I am relieved to be at home right now as I watch the positivity numbers continue to climb, and see the number of sick teachers increase. This is where the swearing came in. I’ve lost my filter when it comes to people who refuse to do what it takes to get this under control. 🤬
But, on the bright side, my home office has a better view, so there’s that. (It’s all about the small things right now, right? We have to take comfort where we can.)
I manage my stress with baking, crafting, and projects. And coffee. Okay, and maybe a tiny bit of swearing. 😂
This is a sneek peek at a special project that I can’t wait to show you soon!
In case you missed it, this Easy Beer Bread is comfort food at its best, and so simple and quick to make. My husband’s eyes literally rolled back in his head when I handed him a warm, buttery slice. Not even exaggerating. 😂
My contribution this week to the Christmas Blog Hop hosted by Rachelle at My Hubbard Home was this Advent Calendar for Couples. It contains 24 low-key ways for you and your partner to enjoy the spirit of the holidays together in a relaxing way. And we all need more of that in this mess of a year.
Stay tuned for another busy week at The House on Silverado. I’ve got a fun Starbuck’s copycat recipe coming this week, as well as TWO more Christmas Blog Hops and I was invited to participate in a Pinterest Challenge! Can’t wait to share it all with you.
