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?
Welcome to distance coffee again! I hope you and yours are staying safe. Right now Oregon is kind of on fire. Where I live is pretty safe, I am feeling comfortable that the fires will stay away from my home, but also aware that anything could change at any point.
However, I have friends and family that are in evacuation zones, and it feels like we are all on edge. One more thing onto an already difficult year for all of us. The air outside is hazardous, and getting worse. This picture was taken on Wednesday afternoon, as the smoke descended. Earlier this week it was coming in, and then clearing out for a stretch during the day, but now it’s just here to stay…. for who knows how long.
It’s a rough time, but I am thankful that I appear to be in a safe place, that my friends and family are safe (even if their homes may be in danger, they are all paying attention and ready to get out if they need to, and that is what is truly important).
That is the bulk of what is on my mind at this point. Work and school continue on. The pandemic is still going strong and our local numbers are not great. Protests are continuing, and change is not happening fast enough. But right now my energy is being drawn by the fact that the air itself is hazardous and places I know are on fire.
I hope you all are staying safe.
