Happy Weekend! I loved having several days off in a row, it was like a mini-vacation of sorts.
There was Trader Joe's shopping and flower-buying:
pattern- and fabric-cutting (for the dress I'm sewing)
And this morning, there was big breakfast-making and farmers's market shopping (yay for local eggs and kombucha!)
Now that I'm winding down to take my pre-work afternoon nap soon, I'm knitting, magazine-reading, and water-drinking:
None of this has eternal significance, but I thought I'd pop in and say "hi," before I disappear from society for a few days (and, I did promise I would write three posts this week ;) Have a happy rest of the weekend!
Last week was one for the books, not in a great way. The general recap is this: Cooper had a cold, I had a sore throat/chills/fever/headache//flu-like symptoms, Nicholas was in a car accident that left him unharmed, but totaled one of our cars, and a few other things (jury duty that ended up being cancelled, appointments, etc.)
Life has been a swirl of joyful visitors for us! It's been wonderful, and all our visitors are the best kind—low-key and they make your heart glad. All that said, having people in town does upset our routine a bit (routines can do with a bit of upsetting from time to time, though). Today is for catching-up, tidying, writing this post, reading, and knitting, as a bit of downtime.
I enjoy the taste of coffee, yes, but also the practice of slowing down, choosing to savor something, meeting a friend for conversation, and holding a warm mug in my hands. I suppose that's a lot of emotion tied to my coffee drinking. No matter, I drink it everyday, and since we've lived in Austin for nearly two-and-a-half years now, I've developed a method to my Austin coffee drinking.
