If We Were Having Coffee… On September 19

Hello my lovelies!

Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share. How are you? Come on in and I make us a pot of coffee or tea, depending on what you prefer. It’s getting colder already and that even though summer is not over until the 23rd.

If we were having coffee today I’d tell you that I spent most of the week preparing for two courses at university. World Cultures and Communication & Human Relations. I’m hoping to get both done by the end of October.

Friday 56: Vol. 13

The Friday 56 is a blog hop by Freda’s Voice and the rules are simple:

  • Turn to the nearest book.
  • Open it on page 56.
  • Post a sentence or two.
  • Join the linky.
  • Go crazy on the linky.

“Little by little, people trickled out of the fields and drifted down the road. The red-toothed old ldy was back, as was the boy on the buffalo and all the other kids. We greeted each other like long-lost relatives – waving turned to handshakes turned to hugs all around.”

The End of Summer – Photos from the road

This summer I went travelling a bit. Not too far away and not to the most exotic of places, but I did get a few miles under my belt.

So here’s my End of Summer recap of my Euro-Trips, including the GeNeLux (we did Germany but skipped Belgium) road trip with Ronni & Dave, and my solo travels around the southern UK.

A few have asked me to share pictures, so here they are. A random collection of my summer travels.

Weekly Goals Vol. 21

It’s been a while since I posted my last Weekly Goals. Life’s been pretty hectic in the meantime, and I didn’t get many chances to actually sit down and blog.

But my first year of my M.A. is almost up and I need to focus. So back to the weekly goals list it is.

  • Complete CCC505 Assignment #1
  • Complete CCC501 Assignment #1
  • Prepare College Binders for CCC501, CCC505 & MA502
  • Design Field Notes inserts
  • Design Midori inserts
  • Read Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe

You’ll notice I am no longer doing supplement courses. It all got too stressful, and I need to focus on my studies. I’m not about to ruin my A+ average grade for non-credit online courses. I’ve realised I need to slow down and prepare properly. And I also want a bit of time each day just for myself, to sit somewhere with a coffee or tea, and read a book for a while.

Hello, my lovelies!

Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share!

How are you? I’ve had a mad week, but I’m so glad to have coffee with you today.

If we were having coffee today, we’d meet at mine and walk into town together. Our annual, inner-city flea market “Zöppkesmarkt” is on this weekend and there’s loads to see and do. Bring a brolly, though, because the weather keeps changing.
