In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
I’ve been taking a little down time after a major surgery (recovering smoothly) and haven’t explored or ventured out of the hospital and apartment for a while.
Thought I’d just share a few things.
I really enjoy visiting with friends and enjoyed many visits over the past week.
Good to go to Central, Hong Kong and hang out at Holly Brown’s. What a delicious treat! Additionally it was special to meet with a few of my librarian friends and chat about teaching, life, and literature.
The day after visiting with friends, I attended and presented at a conference and had to ride the MTR for 1 1/2 hours each way. On the ride I looked down and saw this shoe! Ice cream was on my mind…
I was scheduled to present at ESF’s, English Schools Foundation, yearly conference and enjoyed sharing my top online organizational tools with colleagues from various schools. My favorite part of the presentation was when we explored resources and shared other favorite tools.
Here’s my little google presentation I shared about how I use technology to support inquiry and literacy needs:
Visiting the hospital for almost a week there were a few things I stared at… my book friends and iPad… Never turned on the tv that was provided. I was in a room set up for three people and got to know one person well and the other bed had a few different people…
Finally, thanks to many for lovely flower gifts. They’re still cheering me up! Somehow I also accumulated some sweet candy treats from friends, those will likely pop up on a few Treat Tuesday posts coming soon!
Perhaps in the next week I’ll recuperate a little more and be able to explore a new area of Hong Kong. The coming week is mid-term break, one week off! If I hadn’t had the surgery, our family would be on our way to Beijing, China… but that’s for another holiday now. We plan to try to venture out, hopefully as a whole family each time, depends on my stamina.
One good thing about this surgery, it took many days of recovery but now I’m really enjoying reading again and have had the opportunity to make friends with many new books!
