Welcome back to another round of the weekend coffee share. Get comfortable. What may I offer you? A cup of coffee, tea, water or maybe you’d prefer a green smoothie. I can make you my favorite: bananas, pineapple and spinach. It’s deliciously sweet and good for you.
If we were having coffee (or your beverage of choice), I’d tell you that I don’t know how another week passed by so quickly. I can’t believe May is already half way through. I’ve been so busy with editing and proofreading work all month. This week, with my husband abroad and all the duties of home, child, cooking and cleaning to deal with, something had to give, so I haven’t been on social media and I have a backlog of comments to reply to. Thank goodness it’s the weekend.
Besides work, I’ve had a fair share of fun and relaxation. On Tuesday, I went with my husband and son to Warsaw. My husband was flying out to Algiers the next day, but had to be in Warsaw on Tuesday to take care a few things. My son and I tagged along so we could at least spend the day together. We had a great time. When we finally had some free time, we went to a great new vegan restaurant called Lokal Vegan Bistro, where we had a delicious dinner, and then we went to our favorite park near the US embassy. The day was beautiful, sunny and warm. It was perfect.
Wednesday was back to things as usual. The free day on Tuesday meant I had no time to goof off the rest of the week. Skipping on social media, I was able to meet all my work deadlines. As you may have noticed, though, I skipped a post yesterday. It was part lack of time, part I didn’t like the story I had written, part laziness.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that the weekend should be much more fun that the week was. Today is European Museum Night, which means all the museums and galleries are open late and planning fun events. I look forward to this night every year. This year will be the first time I will go without my husband, and my son is with the in-laws, which means girls’ night. Fun! I foresee concerts, art, food, and great conversations in my very near future.
Tomorrow will be a great day as well. I’ll be participating in a workshop for women called the Red Tent, which is about exploring the cycle and the feminine. This is our fourth meeting. It’s been a great thing to be a part of. I feel so much more in tune with my body, so much more true to myself. If you ever see one of these workshops near you, I highly recommend them. You’ll learn something about being a woman, even if you’ve been one for a very long time.
