Hello again dear readers and happy Sunday to you all. Thank you for stopping by for a chat and a strong cup of coffee or two. I know I am later than usual, and it feels later still due to losing an hour over daylight savings, but lucky for us it is never too late for coffee. It’s one of the things I love about it, it is there for you at all hours of the day.
If we were having coffee I would probably begin by explaining why I am late today. This weekend was spent hanging out with friends, old and new, who I haven’t gotten to see outside of a work setting in a long time. Last night we went out with one set to have drinks at a sports bar I had never been to and have decided that I won’t be returning to. It was pretty dead inside and the music wasn’t that great, not to mention the horrendous lack of a dance floor, unacceptable! Thank God my friends know how to have a good time whether we are.
This morning we returned to our favorite place for brunch on a double date with another queer couple. We have very few gay couples to hang out with and lately it feels like we haven’t been making enough time to see them the way we should. It is nice to sit across from another couple who understands what you have been through from coming out to not being able to get married to the complicated process of having children. We forgot how much we needed that in our lives. We’ve already made plans to see them again next weekend.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that after brunch we did a little bit of shopping too. The weather was too beautiful to waste on going back home and doing chores so we pushed everything back and visited our favorite hipster stores. We picked up a gift for my brother’s coming baby, a few air plants and what I think is a hart’s tongue fern, a new tank top for the summer, and a hilarious greeting card that says “I hate you, I always have”, on the front. I don’t know who we are going to give it to but someone is getting that hate card.
The weather started to turn chilly so we decided against a late lunch and came home where a short nap was much needed. I’m sorry that all meant you were put on the back burner for a bit but I would never let the weekend pass without our chat.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that this week was one of brainstorming. I have only just now come up with a theme for my A to Z Challenge and I am preparing for the week off I’ll have over spring break to get some posts written
I also have been working for 10 to 15 minutes every day on my stupid little zine. I know that doesn’t sound like much but we all know that slow progress is better than no progress at all and progress and not perfection is always the aim. Updates soon :)
And finally I have decided I want to add pen palling to my list of hobbies. I’ve always wanted to I just never got around to figuring out how to do it. Last week I was inspired by another blogger to start looking into how to make this happen. I would love to receive beautiful letter like the ones she received.
If we were having coffee I would apologize again for my lateness and say that we had both better get going. I am sure you have other things to do and I have to emotionally prepare for the beginning of the work week.
I hope you had a good week and I ask you to please leave a comment and let me know how you have been, I always love hearing from you. I look forward to meeting again next week, I promise I’ll be on time.
