#WeekendCoffeeShare – Off the Loom

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?

Even though I haven’t had the energy to respond to everyone’s comments individualy I wanted to say how much they mean to me. I love the little community we have built here, and it is so nice to have this one thing that can remain constant!

It’s been a rough week. I was very productive on Monday, but the rest of the week had been challenging. I found out that the dosage on one of my medications is being changed due to shortage (I take hydroxychloroquine as one of my core meds to treat my autoimmune disease), and that just threw me for a loop. On top of all the uncertainty about most everything else in my life, now I have to step into the unknown waters of lowering the dosage on the medication that helped me have the energy to function quite nearly at a “normal” level. It’s a tough blow.

But, I did manage to get SOMETHING done this week at least – just took this beauty off of my loom. Probably will wet finish it (though I’m tempted not to, kinda like it as is), and then I can move on to the next project!

Do you have any projects helping you get through?

  1. My wife is using her Instagram account to capture me cooking with 30 pounds of canned corn. Not kidding. I thought the order was for 10.6 oz cans….turns out they were each ONE HUNDRED AND SIX OUNCES! Corn Fritters, Corn Pudding, Corn and Crab Chowder so far, still more to go!

    1. I hope you like corn! My husband ordered 48 cans of catfood while being mind-controlled by the cat, but fortunately although they were not exactly as he expected, they were not ten pounds each or anything. I wonder if you can give some to a soup kitchen or shelter if you aren’t using them all.

        1. Great. How many cans did you get, may I ask? We have been stocking up on the monthly sales all along, and I am lucky enough to have lots of organic chocolate bars in the freezer, lots of rolls of toilet tissue, and a few jars of organic coconut oil, aside from the mountain of cat food cans.

          1. I live in Los Angeles, and for the most part everything is fully stocked. But since Amazon Fresh isn’t delivering, I decided to buy some cans of vegetables to have at the house….ordered online to be shipped…the diced tomatoes said 14.5 oz cans, so assumed the ones that said 10.6 were just smaller…never noticed they were 106 oz cans! And it wasn’t from store that catered to restaurants, and they weren’t that expensive – I learned my lesson to read the fine print!

              1. In a strange coincidence, we happened to be well stocked with 40+ rolls at our house..we have 4 bathrooms and I had a weird history of keeping each one stocked…so even though our grocery store shelves are bare, I can last for months! Say safe and sane during this and thanks for commenting, love hearing from you!

                  1. I now say “stay safe and UNSANE!” This lockdown is crazy…my wife hasn’t been out of the house for 23 days and they just extended the quarantine to mid-May here in LA!


  2. Sorry about the medications, and I hope it settles down and works well for you. This week I am doing more cooking with my spouse, who is learning to cook this way, and that is fun. We wind up with mostly nice food too.


  3. So sorry about meds and lower adjustments. Praying for everything to get back to normal (whatever normal is?) Sooner than later. Your loom work is BEAUTIFUL! Stay safe, stay strong ❤️


    1. I have faith that we do return to normal. They did after the 1917 Spanish Flu and must have after the Black Plague. I realize now that my grandparents were in their teens and 20s in 1917 and they never mentioned that pandemic. I vividly recall my grandfather’s stories about other hardship including when Scarlet Fever hit.

  4. When we moved into the house 5 years ago we inherited 12 chairs covered in tartan that had seen better days. I took it on myself to reupholster them. Managed 6 or so in the first year and then lost the motivation…..Made more progress in the last 3 weeks than in the last four years, and I get to watch Deep Space 9 in the back ground whilst I work!

  5. I am so sorry about your need to lower your med dosage and especially for such a stupid reason. I really hope the adjustment will be easy to deal with.
