I didn’t have anything planned for a blog post today. So I thought it might be time for another virtual coffee date! Where we pretend we are sitting and chatting about food, kids, and life in general. You know…just catching up and shootin’ the breeze!
So pour yourself a cup of your favorite beverage, and let’s chat!
If we met for coffee I would tell you that I feel perpetually behind. With everything! Work tasks pile up faster than I can finish them. There seems to always be a load of clothes in the dryer waiting to be folded. Sometimes there is a wet load in the wash waiting to be put in the dryer, and a dirty load on the floor, waiting for it’s turn. There are always dishes to wash, meals to plan, messes to pick up. And I am by no means a perfectionist when it comes to housekeeping. I have learned to let go of a lot. And this isn’t a complaint really. It is more of an observation. It does overwhelm me at times, though. And I wonder if I will ever get to a point where I feel caught up? Probably not. Oh well! Such is life, I guess.
If we met for coffee I would tell you that my parents are coming to visit this weekend! And I am so excited to see them. They moved to Florida three years ago, and we are about a five hour drive away now. That is the furthest I have ever lived from them, and I do not like the distance. But I am so glad to see them! And little buddy will be over the moon. He loves his Nana and Pop!
If we met for coffee I would tell you that my son is at the age where he likes to be perpetually entertained. He is so active and energetic and curious. I love it! We are making plans to get out of the house this weekend and take him to a local outdoor fun event with face painting, balloon animals and games. Although he is pretty happy with just wandering around our own yard.
If we met for coffee I would tell you that I made a few impulse purchases from Amazon this week. Silicone Baking Cups were the first buy. I want to make some scrambled eggs and veggies to eat during the week. And muffins of course! I also bought a couple of these Copco Tumblers. I use them for my DIY iced coffee drinks. I love the coffee house versions, and these make me feel like I am having one from Starbucks.
If we met for coffee, I would tell you that I am planning my vegetable garden this year! I have skipped a lot of planting the last two years due to keeping alive a tiny human. But I miss home-grown tomatoes! So I have already prepped the garden. The threat of frost is usually over in Alabama the first week in April, so I will be plating things very soon. I enjoy growing veggies. It is more than just a hobby to me. It is an escape and a stress relief. I will share pictures on the blog once I get things planted.
What about you? What’s going on with you this week? What’s on your mind? Feel free to play along in the comments.
