Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share! How are you doing? How is your week so far? Can I offer you some coffee? Or tea?
It’s been a great first week back to work after my long summer vacation. I am a little tired, not due to the heavy work load, but getting back into routines again (remembering all the little things; times, my daughter’s activities, door codes, extra clothing etc etc.) It feels good though. I’ve been riding my bike to work, a total of about 40 miles/week. I’ve also been walking a lot with my daughter. I like getting some exercise into my daily routine.
Going into the week we had to update our closets a little, fall can offer many different weathers in our region, including heavy rains. I realised last week that we needed new rain gear. I looked at local second hand stores first, but didn’t find what we need. I am a fan of recycling and reusing when possible. If that is not possible, quality is a priority, so that the clothes can be used for a long time. I love having four seasons, but you do need a slightly bigger wardrobe compared to Las Vegas (where we lived prior to moving to Sweden.) Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I was wearing a base layer of wool while riding my bike to work, on Friday shorts and t-shirt was the right fit. The mornings are starting to get cooler already, something that I really like. Do you need a refill on your beverage? What is going in your corner of the world?
It saddens me deeply to read about the ongoing wildfires, maybe especially the Dixie Fire in California, since I can relate, having spent a great deal of time in that area. I’m thinking about the friendly people we’ve met during our visits there. The cafe we made sure to have lunch at every time we passed by. I am also thinking about all the properties I looked at in the area, but for one reason or another the sales always fell through. I am grateful to be safe, but so sad for all the people affected by the fire.
What’s you plans for the weekend? I am going to start reading the first books for the class I’m taking this fall. I am excited about that. I also promised my daughter that we visit an ice cream place today. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I really enjoy spending time at home after being busy at work all week. Thank you so much for the lovely company, and an extra thanks to Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share! Have a fabulous weekend!
