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?
