Welcome to our weekly coffee date! How are you doing? How is your week? 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!
If we were having coffee today, I would have some sunny ginger orange tea, my favorite at the moment. There’s a dozen or so, different types of teas available. Or I’d be happy to make you a strong cup of dark roast, organic coffee, in my French press. What do you fancy today?
I feel decently good, the best I’ve felt since my allergic reaction 11 days ago. I slept a full night for the first time. It was so fabulous. I’ve almost forgotten what that was like. I’m not going to complain, complaining is so boring. Let’s just say that I’m so grateful that I have an appointment for some allergy testing this coming Monday. I can’t wait to find out what this is all about, so I can move on, and get back to being myself again. Slightly more humble, and thankful.
Having had a little extra time to think due to this latest challenge, I’ve decided to start a new type of journal. With my beautiful, intelligent daughter as intended audience. I’m going to write about every day happenings, and thoughts, but also include stories from my childhood, about relatives that no longer are with us, and anecdotes from her own childhood. I hope that maybe one day she’ll find comfort in those stories. I’ve ordered a beautiful journal that I’m going to use specifically for this.
It’s tomato time here. I’m amazed that the plants are still alive, and thriving. There are signs of stress, yellowing, on the plants, but they are producing. We’ve had several weeks of three digit temperatures now. I’ve given my daughter a little job after breakfast every day, to harvest the cherry tomatoes from our container garden in the backyard. I think she secretly enjoys it very much, and feel proud over herself, even though she sometimes says “do I have too?” She sure is eating a lot more vegetables when she is a part of the whole process; planting, caring for, and harvesting.
Yellow Pear, and Roma Cherry Tomatoes.
I’ve been making preparations for my daughter’s upcoming birthday next week. I can’t believe she’ll be 7 years old in a few days. I might work a little more with that this weekend (double check the cake recipe etc etc,) but mostly it will just be rest, and recovery on the schedule.
Thank you for dropping in for coffee today! How are you doing? I hope your week is fabulous so far, and that your weekend exceeds your expectations 🙂 Tell me about your weekend plans!
