The weekend's pretty much over, yikes! I've been doing lots of homework and lesson planning, but I did fit in a film at the Social Justice Film Festival (I'll try to write about it later, it was very thought-provoking and interesting), made a giant pot of red pepper soup (with lots of other veggies thrown in as well), and caught up with a friend I hadn't seen in ages. We had lunch at a brand new Whole Foods that recently opened in Vancouver. I can't really afford to do much food shopping there - Vancouver is expensive as it is, and Whole Foods especially targets a particular segment of the population rather than a diverse crowd (unlike the Whole Foods I went to in California - it was always bustling, all sorts of people of all ages and professions shopped there, and it was affordable). But it's still fun to visit and enjoy the brand new sparkliness of the store - it's huge, has tons of seating space, and has a pleasant atmosphere :) And of course lunch is always tasty at WF :)
In other news, on Friday I switched over to the Intermediate class. That day we just did some fun icebreakers to get to know each other and I already love my new students. Tomorrow I'm teaching a 40 minute lesson (yikes!) and I'm hoping that the material will be challenging enough for them. Oh, on Friday I tried a pretty tasty feta veggie flax roll, I've had other flavours before - these babies can be found in coffee shops all over Vancouver - and they've all been pretty decent though nothing worth calling home about :)
Do you have a favourite snack that you treat yourself to when hunger strikes unexpectedly?
