Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from January 5th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday January 8th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
Welcome to the New Year!
I kicked off 2018 standing in the library – it’s the second year in a row that I’ve attended Loud In The Library, and I quite enjoyed it. Though, next year I may try something different — it looks like our local game museum did a thing for New Years Eve this year and if they repeat it next year I might try that.
Other than the Library-based start, it’s been a pretty quiet year so far. I didn’t intend to start the year out with so much sleep, but it seems to be what my body wanted – I actually slept pretty much all day on the 1st. I woke up to eat, and went back to sleep. I wasn’t feeling sick, just tired.
Since I also spent a decent portion of the Christmas Holiday weekend sleeping I think it’s time to break that trend. I need sleep, sure, but I should be recharged by now. So this weekend I have other plans. And I’m going to make myself stick to them.
Saturday is nice and empty. But I’m going to force myself to get out of bed in the morning (I’ll sleep in a little, of course!) make breakfast and coffee, get dressed, and then sit down to do some writing/editing. I haven’t figured exactly how long I’ll make myself work – at least an hour, but if it starts to flow well then I’ll obviously give myself some more time to work on it. Then my afternoon is open to do whatever I want – working on one of my crochet projects, or reading being the two most likely candidates.
Sunday is busy-busy. Planning to Skype with a friend in the morning, and then going to a Russian Christmas celebration in the afternoon (hosted by a friend every year, it’s a nice open-house gathering with some good food and nice conversation), followed by my weekly game group (which has been on hiatus for the past two weeks) in the evening.
After three weeks in a row with three-day weekends, it’s kind of strange to realize that my weekend this time around is only two days long. I’m hoping that I can manage to be productive with them…. Especially since the following weekend is going to be my BIRTHDAY WEEKEND – which I really have no major plans for, but who knows what will come.
How was your week? What does your coming weekend look like?
