Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at Eclecti Ali. It’s half-caff for me, with creamer and honey to boost my immune system. Not that I should worry, I’ve been social distancing quite well and wearing a mask in public.
Last night, I invited three teacher friends to a Zoom card party called Cards Against Quarantine. It is very cheeky, inappropriate fun! One of the gals lives in Hawaii now but is moving back this summer, so we talked a long time after the card game. I’m not used to staying up that late, but it was great fun. I’m glad I downloaded that game. Otherwise, it’s mostly work, work, work and streaming shows or movies these days. I do manage to keep exercising, though. I got my mile in this morning on the Gazelle. Got to stay healthy!
On the topic of health, I went for x-rays Thursday. I should hear from my doctor next week. I don’t think there is a tear, so perhaps what I feel is muscular. I’m steal reading about the mind-body connection. I am a personality type that holds a lot of tension in my body and often find it difficult to shut off my mind. Yoga helps, but I skipped it yesterday due to feeling limited with my arm. I am on the computer daily because of teaching online and have not spent much time writing my next novel. That will certainly come this summer when I have more free time! In the meantime, I bought playdough to play with and create things. I also plan to schedule more online card parties or ‘girls’ nights’ for sure!
School ends in thirteen days. I hope to plan a fun last day in a Live meeting. We discussed sharing poems and perhaps making one into a song. One student volunteered to play guitar and another to play piano in the background. I think it will be a melodious, joyful way to end this crazy school year!
I do hope you all are well and will have a great weekend. If you are interested in any of my books, check them out at https://www.amazon.com/Pamela-Schloesser-Canepa/e/B01E0KV716 or find my latest, a great place to start, at Malachi, Ruse Master
In a few days, look for my post about writing 9-11 and COVID-19 into my novels!

Thank you for the coffee. Blessed be technology these days 🙂 I’ll keep my fingers crossed for those test results. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Thank you for the coffee share, Pamela. Music is a nice way to end the school year. Good luck with the x-ray results. Have a nice Sunday and upcoming week!
You as well, Natalie! Thank you for stopping by!
Hi Pamela, Sorry to hear that you’re still mending. It really is time for you to catch a break. Don’t teachers have enough grief and hassle to deal with without stuff like this too? I know you’re both strong and wise, but it really is time for crummy luck to move on.
I know something of these girl’s nights via Zoom. My adult daughter did one with her friends. One of the gals had small gift bags delivered to each of them with girl-stuff and a small personal serving of wine so they could do online wine tasting together. Now, that’s a great idea, I thought. Normally, for guys to get together, there has to be power tools, trucks, sports or live stock involved and (other than the power tools) I’m just not into any of those things, but wine – I could get into that.
Anyway, blessings and hopes for a quick and full recovery, maybe even this week.
Online wine tasting? I love it, I just might borrow that idea!
Somehow – I thought (okay – ‘knew’) this would appeal to you. It’s just another part of your charm. Enjoy!
