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?
Hello weekend! Weekends really are strange for me right now, because it’s just a shift in work. Though it is quite a shift – the library internship is extremely different form the regular job! And I work less hours each day for it, so that’s another difference. But I sit at my chair at my desk for both those jobs (and most of my other work) so the differences sometimes don’t seem so great.
I did get a new chair though. I realized that if I’m going to be spending most of my time sitting at my desk for the foreseeable future, I had best have a chair that was going to be more comfortable and better for my back. Cool hidden feature of the chair I got? It has a lower back massage feature. I could definitely get used to that.
It’s been HOT here, so the fan has been going on my back most of the days, which has made things much more bearable. I knew it was getting hot when even Monster decided to retreat out of the sun and hide out in a dark corner. He is back to enjoying the catio today though, and even spent some time this morning running around like a wild-one, trying to catch a moth, and a spider, and some invisible bugs. He even let me help him find where the spider had gone at one point – probably the only time he’ll actually listen to me.
I got to enjoy the catio a bit one day too! Earlier this week, before it got too hot, I decided I wanted to hang out there for a bit. It was pretty nice, though it reminded me of some of the repairs I wanted to make around there. Reinforcing some things, creating something that can serve as a backrest for me when I’m out there, and putting up a new climbing feature for Monster. The broken toe got in the way of getting it done earlier this spring when I had some time, so now it’s on hold until my schedule clears up a little in August.
Though, I DO get a few days off this coming week! Because of how some things are falling I get the 2nd and the 4th of July off! I’ll be going to a doctors appointment on the 2nd – one that got rescheduled due to COVID. Finally getting a shot into my hip/back to see if it helps this pinched nerve that’s been bothering me for a few years. Other than that I’m going to take that day COMPLETELY off, from homework and everything. I’m working on some (online) social plans with friends. THEN I get the 4th off, though I plan to use that doing some serious homework catch up (and… maybe even get ahead of the game? Maybe?) One of my professors moved the deadline of a big assignment so that it’s due the 5th (instead of the 1st), which makes me quite pleased.
That’s pretty much me at this point. How are you all doing?
