Do you ever have one certain day a week that always ends up crazy or out of order? Wednesdays always seem that way for me. I woke up and did some work while waiting for John to get up so we could bike to breakfast. I was getting hungry and a little cranky and was ready to go on my own when John got up. He told me from now on to wake him up, so you heard it people! I will get him up at 7 (or earlier), no matter what time he went to bed. I had a protein drink before setting out.
We headed out to North Country Cafe. It was a nice biking morning. Maybe 60 degrees or a bit warmer. We zipped along, too!
The cafe was out of wheat bagels. Booo…. However, the baker there had just made up an apricot orange coffee cake. I had to be the first one to have a slice of that.
A very different breakfast for me, don’t you think? It was still a bit warm, too. Yum, yum. Their baker is quite talented. We see her always mixing away when we are there. I was a little concerned about how long this would last me, but I was fine until noon. Not to mention getting in a good 12 mile ride today.
This is something I have been thinking about doing for a while and the training starts at the end of the month. I am officially signed up! They were very excited that there would be a tutor in my little town as they need them there. They just opened an outreach office in my town, so that will work out well.
The orientation meeting is on the 29th of this month. I will decide what track I want to teach after orientation. Each week during October is a training class for what you are interesting in tutoring. You can choose ESL, basic literacy, writing or GED training.
I am kind of nervous. This is a big commitment. It is for a year and 2-4 hours per week. I have taught before for music, but it has been a long time. It’s good to step out of our comfort zones.
Question: Do you volunteer for anything?
