Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, can I get you a cup of coffee? Or tea? How are you?
This week I managed to get my coffee share up early on in the weekend, it’s only Saturday morning in Sweden. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home with my daughter. Monday to Friday are usually so buys from early morning to bedtime, that I find myself enjoying a relaxing weekend with an open schedule immensely.
It’s not like I don’t do anything in the weekends, I always do, it’s the luck of have to’s that I find wonderful. A normal weekend usually involves quality time with my daughter, reading, blogging, nature walks, bike rides, visits to the gym, tinkering around the hose, cooking, and baking. It always ends with a nice family dinner with both of my kids on Sunday. That is an important part of our family tradition.
At work I’ve been snowboarding, skiing, taking the kids to the library, and read surely at least 100 children’s books this week. It’s been a very good week there. Speaking of work, I decided on a whim to bake cinnamon rolls for my colleagues on Tuesday afternoon, bringing them to work on Wednesday morning. That was fun, and appreciated.
I’ve been riding my bike for many miles this week, through rain, sun, hail, snow, mud, and everything in between.
I challenge myself to get a real workout out of riding to work, riding different ways almost daily, seeing which way I like the best. Some days I want to take the shortest way home about 3.7 US miles, other days I go for a much longer ride. The exercise usually makes me sleep very well at night. I also notice much higher overall energy levels. I feel great, and I am very grateful for this week.
Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share. I hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend! I’ve promised to make scones for breakfast, I better get going with that. Afterwards I’m thinking about taking a walk in a nearby nature preserve area. What is going on in your corner of the world? Have a refill on your coffee and tell me about it! Feel free to stay and have some scones if you like 🙂
