If we were having coffee I’d invite you to join me in the little coffee/reading nook I have. It’s rainy out, after over a week of beautiful weather — the perfect day to settle back and rest in the warmth of a cozy corner. The real corner is quite small — but we can pretend it big enough for us to settle in for a time for a short coffee chat.
How have you been doing this week? Anything going on that you want to chat about? How is the weather? Seriously, I’m intrigued by the way the weather is changing places — today is a more typical Oregon rainy day, but this week has been beautifully warm and sunny — which is so unusual.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that this past week was a bit of a challenge. I don’t really want to get into the details of why, it was just the kind of week that called for some venting time with friends after work. I was so happy to have friends who were willing to do just that. One of the things I love about where I’m living now is that I have friends nearby who are able to get out with me sometimes — for coffee, or drinks, or those moments when you just need some deep-fried greasy food — to vent together, laugh, and commiserate.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you how excited I am about the blogging events coming up. Taliana’s next adventure is already shaping up to be a lot of fun — I’m really enjoying the chance to do some collaborative writing with a few friends and some bloggers I’ve met this year and hoping that some new participants will join in the fun.
I’m also preparing for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I participated in one of the Tweet-Chats this week, and made some new great connections. So now, I’m looking forward to my very-first guest posts — and to be hosting a guest poster on this site as well! More about that all will be coming soon!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that this coming week is going to be a challenge for me. I am already planning to step back a bit for social media, maybe only checking in on things during my commute. Finals week is the busiest time in my office, and it could be pretty hectic this term, so I’m anticipating needing to make sure that I am relaxing on my breaks and when I get home. Including a lot of sleep so that I’m not tempted to over-caffeinate. Self-care and all that.
Now, on to writing. This weekend I’m aiming to get a lot of work done on my different projects — though I am already getting a bit of a slow start…. Best get to it! Hope you have a good/productive weekend!
Today’s post is a part of the Weekend Coffee Share, graciously hosted by Part Time Monster every weekend! A time for us to come together, share a cup of coffee (or our beverage of choice) to share some of what is going on in our lives. It’s a lovely check-in time
