Good Saturday morning and thank you for joining me in this First-Saturday-of-May edition of #WeekendCoffeeShare. What a beautiful day today! Come on, let’s get out of the house and go to a coffee house.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you life has been a blur lately. Work has been crazy busy, to the point where sometimes I can’t even find the time to catch up on blogs. A fellow team member recently left us to join the army. This caused a shift in the task force, which resulted in me taking on double duty and overtime.
Even though it’s a good thing (I guess) I’m getting overtime, I’m often exhausted when I get home and that’s usually when my mom would pile more stuff onto my to-do list and by the time I finally find a free second, it’s time for bed.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I was exhausted last night. I went out to the park for a walk and found myself nodding off half-way around the lap. I sure hope I will get more sleep this weekend. I’ll need it.
If you were to ask if I have been anywhere excited lately, I would shake my head and say, “Unfortunately, I have not.” Mother Nature has been bringing lots and lots rain. It seemed like every time I wanted to go somewhere, Mother Nature would bring rain. Non-stopping rain and dreary skies. Then when I’m at work and can’t go anywhere, Mother Nature would present beautiful sunny weather.
I’m hoping this weekend will be the weekend to finally venture outside beyond the park. Wish me luck.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I read Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck for the third time and finally understood what that book is about. I finally understood why we have to read it in school and I finally understood why the book is a “what people call” a timeless classic. I’m not good at discussing books or reviewing them. So I guess you’ll just have to read the 100+ pages to find out yourself.
Finally, if we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me today and hope to see you back here soon.
