Welcome to the weekend coffee share. Can I get you a cup of coffee? Or tea? I have a lovely Christmas coffee to offer. It’s a dark roast with a hint of almond and gingerbread. It’s delicious. It is early Saturday morning here in Sweden and I am about to have my first cup of coffee, please join me.
If we were having coffee I would tell you the the world is white and it looks like a million diamonds is spread out evenly on the ground, the cold makes everything sparkle. It’s been between 5-15F all week. I believe the cold weather is here to stay. (There’s a distant sound of a tractor clearing the snow outside my house.)
It has been a rather calm week, my daughter are well now, but it took her a lot of time to recover from her fever. We both took Covid tests earlier this week, both came back negative. I am planning on a relaxing weekend, giving her time to fully recover her spirits. There is a wonderful, traditional Christmas market with local crafts and Christmas food, up at the old Copper mine tomorrow. My plan was to go there early tomorrow morning, before the big crowds. Everything is outdoors. However, all things considered, I believe we will save it for another year and make sure we are ready to be back to school and work full force on Monday.
I’ve been taking shorter walks every day, to get some fresh air and keep my sanity. I had a birthday on Thursday, and I took the photos in this post that day. (It snowed yesterday, and we have a little more snow now.) My birthday was a very beautiful day. I reflected upon how grateful I am to be at this point in my life, in this place, with my children, experiencing another season together, having a job that I love, colleagues that I miss when I am not at work, and the opportunity to further educate myself to make my work more meaningful (to me and others.) I am very grateful.
Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share! Enjoy your weekend!
