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 Friday August 3rd at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday August 6th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
(I’m testing out the new Inlinkz format…. Please be patient if there is an error here, I’ll do my best to keep an eye on it and replace it if needed. If you can’t post in the link then drop a link in the comments!)
If you are unable to post your site into the link-up for any reason feel free to drop it into the comments and I will do my best to add you to the linkup!
Last weekend I had such a great time on Saturday, dying yarn! I’d never done it before, so it was a complete learning experience for me. Blue Moon Fiber Arts apparently does an event like this annually, and it was so cool for them to open up their barn for us to all visit and try our hands at it! I’m pretty pleased with how my colors turned out, though a bit more muted than I had expected. One of the members of my “stitch-and-bitch” group did a really amazing job at his, the colors came really vibrant!
This weekend is, blissfully, clear. For the past few weeks I’ve been doing substitute childcare at a church on Sunday mornings, so my weekends have and at least one thing every day. But I’ve also had so many other things happening that it is really nice to be looking ahead to a completely open weekend!
There are some minimal errands that need to be done – preparing for my week-long camping trip that starts next Saturday, for instance! I’m really looking forward to that, but I’ll tell you more about it next weekend.
Aside from the errands, I just have a little list of things I need to do, and a few things I want to do. Mostly, though, it will be relaxing time. Reading some books, doing a bit of writing, playing with some yarn… giving myself the time to recharge so I can step into the next week.
It’s interesting to think about what helps different people do in order to recoup. There’s the basics, of course: sleeping, eating good food. But beyond that… how do I re-invigorate my creative self? What can I do in order to get my brain to engage with things outside of the day-to-day? I’ve come up with some basic things that work for me, often in the form of reading and writing, but I am curious about others.
What do you do when you need to get a little refueling?
