Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at https://eclecticali.wordpress.com/ The weather is quite mild today, but I’m still enjoying a mug of hot coffee!
This week has been another intense one. I worked on editing three nights this week, and the days have been: work, work, work, crunch numbers, target instruction, plan, plan, plan. I stayed late Friday and I am ready for the week! Can you believe the season of Lent is almost here? Time is flying, and I feel short-changed, because I did not get to yoga last week. Trust me, I will this coming week! There was not much time for the blog, but I’ve started a new series about books that are not so well-known, but well worth the read. Visit Installment One here: Books You May Not Know Of… I’ve also been taking care of myself. It almost feels like indulgence, but I’ve been working hard and I deserve it. Really, I’ve just decided to do some basic things that I deserve.
One of those is the pedicure. It has probably been two months. The nicer weather may bring opportunities for sandals, so I got the pedicure yesterday. This was after I had lunch with an old friend I hadn’t seen in 6 months or more. She is such a supportive person; she also works in education but she has other dreams and she is working on them. She can be quite an inspiration. I gave her my short paperback, From Lost to Loved, the imagined tale of my dog’s early life. She is an animal lover and adores her cat like I do my dog; she was ecstatic about the book, so I am so glad I did it. She gave me some social media ideas! This leads in to the new Instagram for my dog: Bixby Fluffikins Canepa! Follow him at bixby_fluffikins
The boyfriend and I went to an art show last night to see a work of art by a friend of mine from church. She is new to the art scene. It was great to see her enthusiasm and her post-modern piece. We did not stay out late, but it was something different to do. I cannot believe how much I packed into this weekend already. Yesterday morning I was finishing up work things I know I won’t get to on Monday. Then, I happened to check e-mail and see I got my DNA report back from Ancestry DNA. I just have to say, it’s fascinating! Since I had a hard time inserting the whole picture, the breakdown is:
