Weekend Coffee Share: August Already!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I cannot believe that it is already August! The time has meandered along but has suddenly caught up with me! I am thinking to myself that I better get done with my cleaning and sorting because, before I know it, I will be in my classroom preparing for the new school year.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that one of the things that I bought to organise my things is a little crate for the pile of books that are next to my bed. The crate keeps my TBR neatly in one place and I no longer have a pie of books teetering on my bedside table.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that twice during the past week I made mini-pies reminiscent of South Africa. On Tuesday, I experimented with the meal and filled puff pastry with the leftover stew I had prepared for Monday night’s dinner. On Friday, I created a mushroom filling for my pies. The results were delicious and my family enjoyed eating the flaky pastry. This is a meal I foresee myself making in the future once I am back at work.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I saw my friend a few times this week. No matter how many times I see her, we do not stop talking while we are together – we definitely do not run out of things to say! Once we get back to work and our regular routines, I will miss seeing her so often. This summer has been a real treat in that we are able to see one another so often.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am tired of the summer heat. My body is definitely happier with the milder weather. The heat can be tiring at times which has lead me to reading quite a bit – 12 books during the month of July. I have not yet caught up on the book reviews but I should be able to do that this week. Once I have done so, I will post a summary as usual.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that tomorrow is a public holiday. The long weekend does not affect me and the children too much as we are on break – but it does my husband. He is looking forward to the extra day to relax. 🙂

If we were having coffee, I would tell you to have a wonderful week. As I am still on Summer Break, my plans are very fluid and may change.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. That meal looks delish! Glad you’ve had a good week. I’m awaiting a call to come back to the pre-school for fall/winter semester as a paid teacher’s aide. I hope I make the cut. I love working with the littles and could use the extra funds. It’s a bit cooler here, so it won’t be so bad while I sit at the dealership awaiting a new waterpump tomorrow. Hope you have an excellent week!


      1. Exactly… They’re brutally honest, too. I appreciate that with them. I’d rather be in a roomful of children being children than a roomful of adults with all their pretenses and complicated personalities any day, hands down!

  2. If I recall correctly, you are in Toronto. I was in and out of near by North York one year in 1991 and was amazed at the variety of weather you have, especially how hot it gets there. Most of all, I was impressed with the people and students I had there. I was teaching a technology class for IBM and having the time of my life, except my wife could never join me due to her work.

    Blessings my friend.


    1. We have all kinds of weather here – and many extremes. This summer we are experiencing many heat waves. I guess Summer is making up for the fact that it started late 😀
