Hello, welcome to #weekendcoffeeshare. Let’s have something warm to drink this week because it looks like it’s going to be somewhat of a chilly day today.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you it seems like winter is creeping up my door again as the temperature dropped from the 80’s Fahrenheit to the 70’s to the 60’s to yesterday, which peaked in the mid-50’s. That’s chilly. I had to move my tomato seedlings back inside again.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I spent a portion of my bonus on a new laptop and another portion on a new personal air conditioner, hoping to stave off the heat this summer after the one I bought last summer is no longer working. My 6-year-old laptop is just about done with its life. It takes around 20 minutes just to access the internet to my blog and maybe an hour to access the program to edit my photos.
My photos are all in an uncompressed format and looking at them unedited is like looking at a blemished person without markup – colorless and pale.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I went to quite a few places in the last 7 days.
On Sunday, I drove almost 2 hours to Strawberry Bay Marina. The entire family showed up that day at the request of my mom, who planned the trip and who wanted to go crawfishing. She never did any actual crawfishing that day. She put everyone to work after serving everyone some baked spare ribs. Then she sat in a chair beneath the tent drinking tea and coffee.
Then on Thursday, mom and I hopped into my uncle’s car and allowed my uncle to drive for almost 4 hours to near the eastern border of Utah and Colorado to Dinosaur National Monument. I’m processing the photos from this trip and loving it. I think the photography composition class I took in April definitely helped.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you there was another department event on Friday. The department once after went to TopGolf. We went to the same location last May. It’s where a person stands on the platform and whack the ball as far as they can with a golf club. I think I got better even though I haven’t played in year or perhaps I’m just lucky.
I appreciate you stopping by and reading this week’s #weekendcoffeeshare, hope to chat again same time next week.
