Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Natalie the Explorer. It’s in the 40s here right now, but the sun shines on my back as I eat my cereal with fruit and drink my half-caff. The newly shorn Bixby wanders around looking for his toys this morning.
If we were having coffee, I’d thank you for waiting until Sunday, as I had a hair appointment yesterday. I’d apologize for missing our coffee chat last week, as I was finishing up some grades that were do and preparing for a night at the theatre with my boyfriend.
He surprised me a few days before, saying he wanted to make sure I had that night Free for a dinner theatre date to see Guys and Dolls. The show and the dinner were both grand!
Last night, I convinced him to go to an Improv Comedy night with me at a Veterans Brewery. The atmosphere and ambiance are casual. I’ve only been once before. ..but I loved it! We both loved it last night, too. The comedians are everyday people; one joked about the accident that left him wheelchair bound, another about kicking cancer and what apologies she’d have to make if she didn’t make it.
Improv has a creative process, and I identify with and respect these folks, being a writer. My work occurs in isolation though, and I love sitting somewhere amidst the laughter and following a comedian’s line of thought. A nice activity for a long weekend; I sure needed this break in my routine!
I didn’t do any school work or grading yesterday which was nice. I guess that and my hair appointment forced my Sunday instead of Saturday coffee share. I’ve been keeping up with exercise, so that’s good. I’m going to church in a little while. I haven’t been regular with that, and it’s sad because that is my local extended family. The people are what keeps a church running. The faith is what starts it.
Work has me busy, weather and gray days make me tired. I’m hanging in there for Spring! Days are starting to get longer, and that really has an effect on my energy levels. I’m looking forward to Spring break and a Celtic Fest in March!
Have a great day, everyone! May the sunshine, or the promise of sunshine, spur you on!
