Good Monday morning and thank you for joining me in another edition of #WeekendCoffeeShare. Where would you like to go to have this chat of ours today? We are in Downtown Salt Lake City, there are many many places to go. We can go to the food court, we can take a walk in the mall, or we can stick to the spot we went last week which was the coffee shop next door to my work.
Let’s stick with the coffee shop? Okay, let’s go.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you this weekend had to be the most “normal” weekend I’ve had in a month. It was just my mom and me, at home – me bingeing on TV shows and editing my photos while my mom did her own thing. It was rainy, wet, and gloomy outside and neither of us like to go out on those days.
While we were at home, the rest of the family was at work. I’m kinda liking that schedule – them having their weekends in the middle of the week while my mom and I have our weekends on Saturdays and Sundays like normal folks. That way we’ll never have to deal with one another and to tell the truth, I don’t really want to deal with them. Even after nearly a month, they’re still living like they’re on vacation and I don’t want to be the person to administer the dose of reality.
I didn’t (still don’t) want to do what they did to me when I went to China last year. I don’t want to be the one to tell them, “This isn’t China,” like they repeated told me when I was in China, “This isn’t the U.S.”
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am participating in the A-Z challenge this year. My theme was revealed in this post. I picked a fairly easy and doable theme this year to fit in with my schedule.
To be honest, I have thought about not participating this year because even though I post nearly everyday, there are some days when I just want to take a break and for this challenge, it’s posting everyday and it’s starting to sound scary. But I’m sure if I schedule my time right, I can knock this out of the ball park.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I took a second look at some of my old photos this weekend – the photos I took two years ago in Yellowstone.
The photos were taken under cold, snowy, rainy, icy, and dreary weather. Photos rarely look good under such circumstances, I’ve come to find out. After sitting in my archives for the past two years, I believe it’s time to take a second look.
Finally, if we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me today and hope to see you back here in a week.
