Hello, hello dear readers, and happy Sunday. I hope your weekend is going as well as mine. I was able to get out of the house and have some fun and now I am doing my best to get as much prepared for the week as I can. This week won’t be as bad as the last and if I take some time to start it off right, I might even be able to redeem myself of the awful job I did this week.
If we were having coffee I would start by apologizing to you for being the worst blog host this week. You see, I work a split shift job and I spend most of the middle of my day doing blog type things. Here and there though I am called on to work a bunch of extra hours usually for a whole week straight. This week was one of those weeks and because I was also doing my very best to keep up with the A to Z Challenge I devoted what time I had to write and there was none left for reading and commenting.
I am so sorry and this week I promise to catch up with everyone’s very sweet comments and return the favor to all my fellow bloggers. I also have to catch up on the challenge too. I am currently only behind by one letter but I am lacking some ideas for U thru Z. I am determined to finish, though! I can do this!
Plus, if I understand things correctly, the big A to Z Challenge participants blogroll should be up for awhile afterward and I can take some time then to visit new blogs and make new blogging friends. Basically, my point is, just be patient with me, please.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had a great time at brunch with my girlfriend, my cousin, and my sisters. It was to celebrate my birthday and it was supposed to be much bigger but it seems everyone is busy in April so it was just us.
We went to my favorite place, Punch Bowl Social, which is basically a restaurant, bowling alley, a and bar built into an old warehouse. It’s my favorite place to go and eat hipster food and drink hipster drinks all while feeling cooler than all the people who aren’t there.
I am disappointed that a few of the other ladies I invited couldn’t come but am glad the most important ones were. I may try to set something up again in a few months, I’d love to get all my favorite girls together for more good food and drinks and conversation.
If we were having coffee I would tell that while I don’t much mention pop culture items here on these posts I am super excited for two television events this weekend. Last night Beyonce, who I have only become a big fan of in the last year or so, released her album in the form of
Last night Beyonce, who I have only become a big fan of in the last year or so, released her album in the form of an HBO special called Lemonade. It was visually stunning and the music was pretty good too. It was very emotional, detailing her marital problems, and touching on subjects of womanhood and blackness. I honestly loved it and while I once considered Beyonce to be a nothing but an entertainer, is a true artist. Seriously, it’s pretty amazing.
The other is the return of Game of Thrones tonight. Woot woot! My girlfriend and I have set up a nice dinner, drink, and dessert for this event. We are huge fans of the show and have been anxiously awaiting its return. I am hoping Jon Snow is still alive since he is my favorite and I hope to see lots more Daenerys Targaryen because she is incredibly badass and beautiful. I’ll probably be on Twitter tonight, live tweeting my excitement if you’re interested.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that that I have been feeling “that summer feeling” lately. Summertime has always been my favorite of the year and it is the time when my girlfriend and I feel the most us. It is sleeping with the windows open and cuddling in the morning breeze. It is the most restful naps on the couch in the midday heat. It is venturing out in the warm evening air and finding patios to drink on and friends to laugh with. It is laying awake at night and watching the lightning and listening to the rain.
Our relationship was made in the summer and we make it again every year. The closer we get to it the more my spirits rise nd the more all I can think of is her. *sigh*
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am starting to get anxious about the housework and writing I have left to do and I think I had better head out. I’ve enjoyed our chat and I hope very much you have forgiven me for being a bit busy this week. I’d love to hear how you are doing so please, drop a note in the comments and let me know what you’ve been up to.
See you next week :)
