Hello October, hello Tuesday. If we were meeting for coffee today you would want to make it virtual because I have been really sick. Actually, I was doing well and then had a relapse yesterday which has left me feeling really germy. I realized yesterday that I needed some comfort food and got an iced capp
from Timmy's and it hit the spot. And it was one of the last things I was able to taste before the sinus congestion blasted that small pleasure out of the water.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would tell you that my friend, Cheryl, braved my state of health to meet me for lunch yesterday. Actually, I kind of broadsided her and only told her I was still sick when we met up. I tried to douse myself with tzatziki and extra onions on my falafel but only ended feeling like Pepe Le Pew all afternoon, leaving clouds of eau de greek dining wherever I walked.
If we decided to do the virtual coffee thing I would tell you I am feeling just a little bit soggy after much of this
the past week.
I would share with you that a very special friend, Don Key,
was passing through town this week and we got to spend some quality time together. As I understand it, she likes to remain somewhat anonymous as she does important work in the animal rescue field. I think this works, don't you?
If we were meeting for coffee today I would tell you that in order to keep our sense of humour about the school year, we have started to weigh the nightly homework.
It goes like this, "How many pounds of homework tonight, Riley?" Only ten pounds, not too bad!
If we were meeting for coffee today I would tell you that I keep finding these little videos (mostly of me) that Riley has been taking with my camera or phone. And that the idea of replacing a roll of toilet paper escalated into a full blown scene (mostly by me) this week and I'm thinking I'm going to have to find a creative outlet for this age-old conundrum and if you think this thought has nothing to do the first part of this paragraph, you'll have to stay tuned because I'm brewing a little learning personal project.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would probably kick you out now so I could catch a nap before I pick up Riley from school and encourage you to drop in at Amy's Lucky Number Thirteen as I hear there are lots of birthday cakes floating around over there.
