Weekend Coffee Share 4/23/17

If we were having coffee, we’d be sitting at a table by the window at my local coffee shop overlooking the lake.  The sun is shining, but do not be deceived!  It is colder outside than it looks.  As I write to you today, I actually AM at my local coffee shop.  Much to the chagrin of my family, our internet is down for the weekend.

Today is super exciting because it’s Shakespeare’s 453rd birthday!!  Someday, when I’m on my own with a circle of friends who live near me, I want to host annual birthday parties for the Bard.  I think it would be so much fun to have themed snacks, games, trivia, and readings.  For now, though, I’ll just reminisce about the time I toured his house in Stratford-Upon-Avon and watch the adaptation of Twelfth Night I rented from the library.  Do you have a favorite Shakespeare play or poem?

At my library this week, we had a MASSIVE donation!  A man brought in ten large boxes of books!  My Friday had been shaping up to be pretty boring, so I was thankful for something concrete to do.  I spent most of my afternoon sorting books by size, genre, and author.  Our sale area has been pretty pathetic lately, so it was really nice to fill it up with good books.

I took Saturday off work so I could get out and enjoy Earth Day!  It was a beautiful day–so sunny and warm that I got to wear shorts.  I planned attending my local March for Science, but arrangements fell through at the last minute.  So I instead went for a long hike at a local state park and thoroughly enjoyed being out in this beautiful world we live in.

Today, I’m feeling a bit under the weather.  I don’t know if it was all the exercise I had yesterday (I spent an hour helping my mom in her garden in addition to the hike) or the cooking at the fundraiser breakfast we went to after church, but my stomach isn’t feeling too great.  Around noon, I did something uncharacteristic and took a nap.  I normally don’t attempt sleep in the day, but today I definitely needed it.

How was your week?  What would you share over coffee?

    I’m currently hosting a Shakespeare blog party. Trying to come up with a Playlist of Shakespearean related music.

    I moved on Friday and have had THREE WHOLE DAYS off from work in a row (this includes both coffee shop and teaching). This never happens, as I usually work at least one weekend day at the coffee shop (if not both), so I’ve been enjoying it whike it lasts. It’s been so nice to lay low. Friday was exhausting, so I spent yesterday having a really chill day at my new home, and I spent today running some errands/picking up some additional things for the new apartment. I love my new neighborhood and can’t wait to explore it more. Glad you had such a good weekend, Amelia (even if you were feeling a bit under the weather today). Sounds like you had an adventure filled Saturday, though!

      Congrats on the move, Britta! I’m glad you were able to get three days off in a row–moving is a lot of work and you definitely deserve a break. Have fun settling in and exploring your new neighborhood! 🙂
