Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share! Can I get you a luxury cup of a dark French roast coffee? Today we are in a celebration mode! What are we celebrating you might ask? We are celebrating the first day of the summer vacation. It’s worthy of a celebratory mode, right? Yesterday I worked my last day at the job I’ve cherished ever since I moved back to Sweden 2019. It was a great last week, and a fabulous last day at work. Everyone was so kind, there was many tears, hugs, and gifts exchanged. The children gave me beautiful paintings, necklaces, and bracelets that they’ve made.
It was not easy to say goodbye to the children and all my friends at work. At the same time it’s going to be wonderful with a long vacation, and time to prepare for the new adventures ahead of me. Yesterday evening I invited ”my team” over to my house for a little party. It was wonderful. Everyone had a blast. Since everyone worked a long day first we decided to order food from the nearest pizza place. I had booked the greenhouse outside our apartment complex in advance and we had the party there. It’s the perfect place to have a party, there’s a long table and everyone can sit together, and there’s big areas outside to get up and move around when needed. My daughter joined us the whole evening, and she had a great time, getting a lot of attention. She loves to be the center of attention at any party. I am not the least bit shy, but I’ve never felt a need to be the center of attention the way she does. She was shining the whole evening. My colleagues looked like they had a blast and there was many laughs, and some people got up and started to dance to the music. It was a perfect summer night. I did make a berry cheesecake for dessert, there is a small piece left, would you like to try it?
Are you enjoying summer weather? It’s still a little cool here around 70F, which suits me just fine. I’m hopping to enjoy a relaxing day today. I was thinking of giving my blog a summer look, visit blogs I haven’t been able to visit due to the business at work and school these past weeks, and just enjoy life getting into vacation mode. 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.
