Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share! Can I get you a luxury cup of a dark French roast coffee? During the weekdays I rarely have coffee at home, I have my first cup at work. The coffee there is OK, but the coffee at home is a ‘die and go to heaven experience’, with carefully selected, organic coffee beans brewed to perfection in my French press. Or perhaps a delicious, green, organic ginseng/matcha tea is more to your likings? That is my favourite tea at the moment. There is regular black tea as well. How is your week?
We started this week with a lot of snow, we still have snow, but not as much as we had in the beginning of the week. The temperature have been playing some kind of yo-yo game. For the past couple of days it’s been way too warm and really windy. Before the week started I decided to ride my bike to work as many days as possible, 3.7miles one way. Monday and Tuesday, when we had tons of snow the bike lanes were in perfect shape. It was pure pleasure to ride to work. Riding my bike to work is my preferred way of transportation. I get a great workout, a big chunk of the way is uphill. I listen to uplifting music and start my bike riding days with high overall energy levels. On Wednesday it was warmer and the snow on the sides of the bike lanes had melted some and started to mess up the road, I decided to not ride my bike on Wednesday. On Thursday it was slightly colder, but not cold, around 25F. It was a tad but windy, but not too bad. I decided to take the bike. It was fine, a little icy on the way home, but totally doable. Yesterday (Friday) I woke up to the wind howling outside my window, as I was enjoying my breakfast it sounded like it settled a little, and I decided to take my bike…it was rather windy, and very icy. Less than a mile away from home my bike and I had a slight disagreement with a bumpy patch of ice, and we parted ways, my bike went to the right and I flew up in the air and went to the left. Somehow my ninja powers appeared out of nowhere and I landed on my feet. My bike and I agreed that she could have a day off. What is the weather like where you live?
I’m going to try to talk my daughter into going ice skating today. I know she has other plans, but I also know that she would benefit from at least doing it once before they start doing it at school next week. She haven’t been at all so far this year. She does enjoy it when she is there on the ice, but she absolutely hates putting her winter clothes on, and going to the ice rink (it’s only minutes away.) We’ll see. She also has some homework that we are going to tackle this weekend. I have some educational plans for this new semester to write, and some most interesting books for my new school to read (I am so excited about starting on Monday.) I am definitely going to the gym Saturday and Sunday. I was contemplating going to a yoga class tomorrow. It’s the thoughts of that damn pandemic messing around in the back of my head making me decide against it. I know they’ve taken measures to keep everyone safe during the yoga class, with extra cleaning, limiting the number of participants, and it’s very doable to keep distances in that big room, but still…I’ll wait a little longer. Would you like a refill on your beverage?
Something fun I will do today, is to plant three spider plant cuttings that my little sister gifted me when we visited her over the holidays. I’ve been letting them grow strong roots in water until now, but I believe it’s time to plant them in soil. I have some beautiful terracotta pots that I am going to plant them in. These pots are small, to match the cuttings, but they are of the exact same model as the huge ones that I have my monstera plants in. I believe that is going to look fabulous. The plants are not going to be right next to each other, but the kitchen/living room is an open area, and you’ll be able to see all the flower pots at the same time, sitting at the kitchen table, and sitting in the couch in the living room. I’ll post some photos on Instagram later.
Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share. Tell me what’s going on in your neck of the woods. I’m going to try to visit everyone’s coffee share this weekend.
