Welcome, step up on my porch and pour yourself a cup of that black gold, or let me get you some ice tea from the fridge. What do you prefer today?
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?
I took the new photo at the top a few minutes ago. This is where I am sitting writing this post right now. I love my porch, it’s an extra room. We eat dinner here almost every night, I like reading out here, and we play chess and cards out here, we grow our kitchen herbs here, and we even hang laundry here. In the winter we always store firewood for a couple days here, the rest of the firewood is in the woodshed, but it is so convenient to store some at the porch. In the summer the “firewood shelf” double as a place to put our shoes. I feel relaxed out on the porch. I love listening to the wind blowing in the trees that are surrounding us (oaks, aspens, birch, pine, lilac, and elm among others.) There is often at least a breeze up here on the little hill I live on. The main colour you can see looking out is green. It is very green right now. Are you comfortable? I love this weather, 78-80F it is perfect here in the shade.
What is going on in your world? I just worked my last day before the summer today. It was emotional saying goodbye to the children, especially since I knew that I won’t see most of them in the fall. My kitchen is now covered with sweet cards, drawings, chocolate and flowers from my little students. My 7 week long staycation begins now. I don’t even feel sad for not going to Iceland like I had planned. I feel happy and satisfied. I’m going to enjoy just being. We are still very much in the shadow of Covid-19, with 4854 deaths so far. We are allowed to travel within Sweden now, previously we could only travel 1-2 hours from our home, no longer. We are allowed to travel in the whole country now, but I am not planning on doing any longer trips. The virus is still very much present. We are happy here, and there is so much we can do close to home. Giving my daughter everything she needs is at the top of my list, other than that I am going to explore nature, and play with my new camera. Perhaps I’ll combine all three of this some days 🙂 Please tell me about what’s new in your life this week in a comment.
Have a fabulous weekend!
