If We Were Having Coffee in a Whirlwind

Good morning, pull up a chair, relax, it is time for another #WeekendCoffeeShare.

Weekend Coffee

I’ll have to admit, I probably won’t get a chance to read many people’s coffee posts this week. We have had friends in from Chicago this weekend, and it has been busy this week–first cleaning, then entertaining. Yesterday we went to the Butterfly House; today we are going to the Zoo and then the Arch. It should be a fun day.

I was about to write that I was enjoying the morning’s peace when I heard thumping downstairs. Twenty minutes later, Cassatt is downstairs watching TV, and I think Picasso may be joining him soon. The first show I wanted to show him is no longer Prime. It is frustrating how Amazon changes what shows it has on Prime. I just hope it doesn’t take Downton Abbey off prime, since that is my obsession right now.

I get frustrated how everyone’s spring breaks are on different schedules. We had spring break a few weeks ago, and our Chicago friends are on spring break this week. That means Picasso had to miss out on the fun yesterday because he was in school.

Our other big news is how quickly Cassatt is growing up. He will be four next month, and I need to find a place for his birthday party. He insists on doing things independently, and things I helped him with just a few weeks ago he does by himself now. This will make summer easier for everyone! I can’t believe I’m thinking about summer already, but I need to make plans for what my boys will be doing.

Well, my coffee is nearly gone, and it is time for me to get ready for the zoo. I hope you have a wonderful week!



If We Were Having Coffee Before the Egg Hunt

Weekend Coffee

Good morning friends.┬áPull up a chair, grab your favorite mug, and pour some coffee. Would you like some cream or sugar? I’m already on my second cup for this morning. I have a feeling I’ll need it today. The kids have an Easter egg hunt today, and we’re doing Easter baskets this morning. I know Easter isn’t for another week, but I would like them to enjoy the fun Easter separate from the religious Easter, and then we can celebrate religious aspects of Easter next week.

The boys had Spring Break this week. It seems like most of St. Louis had break the week before, and it was nice to be able to go places without big crowds. We went to the Children’s Museum one day, and the History museum another. We enjoyed some good weather and grumbled about snow. It was a good week.

Because of Spring Break, I didn’t get much other stuff done. My professional development project has sat this week, waiting for me to do more planning. I don’t have any more word about the grant, which makes planning more difficult. I did get some writing done, and I hadn’t done much writing recently so that was a nice change.

It’s time to get ready for the egg hunt already. I hope you have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
