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 May 11th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday May 14th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
If we were having coffee I’d ask for us to make it an afternoon thing. Because this was my first full week back to work, and I am pretty darn exhausted. Things went pretty well, it’s just been a long week. Because I’m still very much recovering from the surgeries, I haven’t really planned a whole lot for the weekend – purposely giving myself time to rest.
Work itself has been great this week (really, it’s the commute that’s doing me in!), I feel so fortunate to have the coworkers I do — they did an awesome job covering my duties while I was out DOUBLE the amount of time originally anticipated. Now that I’m back they’re continuing to be stellar, helping pick up some of the duties that involve being on my feet more.
(They also welcomed me back with some fun signs)
This coming week is the next Bout of Books, which I’m planning to participate in. I’m hoping I’ll have enough energy to give a little extra focus to reading during the week. My To-Be-Read list is, as always, ridiculously long. I think I’m going to try to knock some of the younger-reader books from the list this week.
I’ve also realized I’m a fair amount behind in writing about what I have read – so I’m going to start looking at getting that organized a bit more. Lots of writing, lots of reading — but I’m being sure to allow myself the leeway to NOT do any of it if my energy doesn’t allow. If my energy all is being drained just getting through the work day I need to listen and not push myself any more than that.
What are you up to this week?
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 14th and runs through Sunday, May 20th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 22 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
