Weekend Coffee Share

Can I get you a cup of the black gold?  Or maybe some tea?

I haven’t written any post since last weekend’s coffee share. Which is a little unusual for me. My goal is 2-3 posts a week, and I usually nail that. What I have done in the blogging world, since my last post is; catching up with some of my favorite blogs, reading, and commenting. I have also looked into refreshing my design a little. I am kind of happy with the blog design I currently have. I like having one, big column in the middle, and no sidebars. I like the clean, uncluttered feeling that gives me. Suits my minimalistic mindset perfectly. I get distracted easily, maybe that is why I crave simplicity? Because I do like to fully get absorbed by the thing I’m doing. The major thing I would like to change with the design I have now is to showcase my camera photos bigger, while keeping any Instagram photos I may share on the same scale they are today (since their resolution usually is smaller.) I’m in the process of trying different themes, and customizing them, to see if I can find the perfect one. So far, I have not found one that I like better than the one I already have. Any suggestion of WordPress themes in line with what I am looking for?

How is your week? Are you fully recovered from the delicious Thanksgiving food? Is your home starting to look like Christmas? I’m going to get the best possible Christmas gift this year, we’ve set the date to when my daughter is moving in with me full time to Christmas Day. I am thrilled, and very grateful. I am also looking forward to spending this weekend with her. I’m going to make sure that we’ll get out of the city, at least on Sunday. I’ve been in the city every single day since last weekend. That is hard for my country soul. I daydream about quiet, open spaces, wild horses, and breathing fresh air. I do kind of like Las Vegas, better than I imagined, but too constantly be in a loud city, surrounded with city mentality all the time is challenging. I believe I can handle it a little longer, but I need to make sure to get out of the city in the weekends, otherwise it’s not going to work. Those weeks when I fit in 1-2 shorter hikes in the middle of the week, makes it much more manageable. I haven’t done that this week, but I know I should do that every week. The weather is still wonderful here. There’s even snow on some of the surrounding mountain tops. What’s the weather like where you live? 

I was overdue for a haircut, and took care of that this week. It feels good.

My favorite series Vikings (the only one that I am following actually,) started up again this week after a very long break. That was exciting. I think Norway is one of the most beautiful countries on earth, and a big portion of it is filmed there. 

Do you need a refill on that coffee? Any fun plans for the weekend? The coming week? We have The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in town next week. I’m not sure if I’m going to go, or not. It is kind of a big happening. We’ll see. 

It’s the last day of November today, and that feels kind of weird. It’s crazy that 2018 is almost over! It’s been such an intense year. Have an amazing weekend, feel free to grab some coffee to go if you like 🙂

 

Love,
