Weekend Coffee Share: First Week of the Break

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we are in the middle of experiencing a heat wave and will therefore opt-in for the iced version. Since Thursday, the temperatures have been wicked and I have been cooling off in front of the fan and reading. I am also grateful that I have set up my balcony so that we can sit outside as often it is cooler to spend time outside instead of inside.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my week started with a public holiday – Canada Day, to be precise. My family and I decided to do something different and stand in line to receive a free meal given out by a local restaurant. If you want to read more about this, you can have a look at my post (the link is here).

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I met up with my dear friend a couple of times during the week for a brief tea. After a little catching up, we managed to speak a little about our buddy read. We haven’t finished discussing the book though – there is so much to say about it! Hopefully we will get the chance to do so this week.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have managed to rest a little. I am still feeling a little tired but not as exhausted as I was by the end of the school year. This time off does me good and I look forward to resting more before I work on my plans for the summer. In the meantime, I will continue to take things slowly and enjoy my time without deadlines and a tight schedule.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am still enjoying the flowers given to me by the parents over a week ago. The lilies have died and I have cut off the dry leaves. The carnations and white flowers are hardy though.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you to have a good week. May it be filled with many adventures.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Oh wow yeah, the heat! It’s relatively cool here now (I think even cooler than normal), but a week ago we had some pretty hot weather. I’m glad you enjoy reading in front of the fan and sitting on your balcony when you can. What book are you reading with your friend?


  2. Keep cool. The heat has been brutal here as well plus I am more sensitive to it these days. But a cooling is expected this up coming week. Thanks for the coffee.


  3. when I was much younger, I loved reading with friends. We were all in our teens, and had more time to hang together and talk about books long into the night with few things of adult life to worry about. These days, my reading is too erratic to share it with others. That you can carve out time is wonderful. Good books with good friends – life can barely get any better.

    1. Reading together with my friend has added another dimension to my enjoyment of reading. Our talks meander between what we have read and how it can be linked to our life experience.


  4. It’s good that you’ve been able to enjoy some down time. The end of the school year can be very stressful. I’ve not read the book you mentioned. Did you enjoy it. Maybe I should add it to my summer reading list!


  5. I’m with you on the heat! Wow, is it hot here. On my 5 mile run today, the first 2.5 was great, but then it was bad. I drank 40 ounces of water on the way back and could’ve drank so much more. Have a great week! Hope you get a break from the heat!
