Weekend Coffee Share


It’s Friday and the weekend is knocking on our door! It’s been a great week here. How was your week? Can I get you some coffee? Or tea?

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)!

I spent part of last weekend working on my blog design, giving my about page a facelift, and I also created a Facebook page (to go with my new beautiful blog design.) If this is your first time here since last weekend, I’d love to hear your opinion about my new design.

This week started out in the best possible way, with my blogging friend Lois visiting Monday evening. We enjoyed a great vegan dinner together. Lois is a super cool lady with many stories to tell. It was a blast.

The weather have been wonderful this week, and I’ve spent a lot of time playing outside with the kids at work. My own daughter have had several big tests at school this week, and we’ve spent the majority of our “free time” studying. As a reward for her hard work I’m taking her to the movies tomorrow. She’s been talking about the movie Shazam since we first saw the trailer, months ago. I got us the tickets this morning, and told her during our walk to school. She’s super excited!




I’ve been sitting next to my daughter while she’s been studying, to be able to assist when needed. While she’s been working hard with her school work, I’ve written a couple blog posts this week. One of them about one of my absolute favorite Zen Strategies, watching wild horses being horses. If you missed that post, you can find it here.


Are you still good on your coffee? Tea? Can I get you a refill?

I’m in desperate need of a haircut! I’ve been trying to make time to get it done for a few weeks, without success. This weekend it’s going to happen! Hopefully today. At least that’s my plan. I got my new glasses yesterday, (hooray,) and feel motivated to get my hair fixed as well. It only took a week to get my new glasses, and not the two weeks that they told me. I’m very grateful for that, because it’s been a blurry week of constant headache. I’m super happy now. I got two new pair of glasses. One of them that I envision wearing more outdoors, they are bigger. Both glasses have transition/adaptive lenses, and can be used both outdoors and indoors. (It’s possible that I uploaded a selfie with one of my new glasses on my Instagram this morning..)

Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Is spring in full bloom yet? I’m planning on exploring some more in Mojave on Sunday, to see what’s in bloom right now. In my garden, that also needs attention this weekend, more tomato seedlings are coming up every day. I told my daughter yesterday that we’re going to have to give some seedlings away, because we have so many now, but she suggested that we should make more room for a bigger garden, and share the tomatoes when they are ripe instead. LOL. I just love her so much!

Are you reading anything exciting at the moment? I just started a new book yesterday The Watson Girl, by Leslie Wolfe. I believe I’ve read almost all her books now. I got into them by reading a review from one of my friends on Goodreads. The title of that book was Las Vegas Girl. The title caught my interest since I now live in Las Vegas. When I read it I discovered that I really like Leslie Wolfe’s storytelling technique. I also like the fact that all her books (that I’ve read so far,) have a strong, intelligent female as the main character. Of course that’s appealing! I’d love to hear what you are reading right now!

Cheers to a fabulous weekend!

  4. Nice! I’ll have to go to your FB page! I have tons of pictures of the wild horses from Nv. Loved watching them in their natural environment and just being horses. You just have a sense of calm and tranquility watching them. Have a great weekend!

  5. I have been here since you changed the theme, but after clicking on the link I was lost for just a second. I do like it, it works, I’m just not used to it yet!

    It sounds like a good week. I’m glad you got your glasses earlier than expected. The horse photos are great.

    I hope you are enjoying the weekend 🙂

  6. Everything looks WONDERFUL! Love the photos. I’ve never driven to find wild horses before nor witnessed them in person. I bet they are magnificent. I’ve been to Yellowstone national Park and observed lots of bison, elk, deer, pronghorn sheep and bears from a great distant! I’ve been to Oatman, NV and seen wild donkey’s, one day I’ll have to go find some wild horses! ❤️

    • Thank you my friend!!! There is plenty of wild horses in Arizona as well. One good way to find them is to look for water on the map, and go there at dawn/dusk. I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend. ❤

      • Thank you for the wild horse tips!! One day soon I’ll have to venture out to find them! ❤️🐴🐎❤️


  7. I love your new blog format! Looking forward to the mojave pics – I miss out west so much!! How cool about the tomatoes. Bill just suggested we put in a few tomato plants at the site of my failed garden. We’ll see how they do.

    • Your failed garden will turn into your fabulous garden, that’s what’s going to happen 😉 I see gardening as part experiments, and part science. You never know what elements are going to be thrown into the picture. Best of luck!

  8. I really love the photographs of the horses. Until I was 8 or 9 years old, there were horses in the pasture across the back fence. Before the land was sold off for housing lots. Haven’t ridden, now, since the early 70s. Missing them.
