Welcome. Come on in and have a cup of coffee or tea. Whatever you prefer. I’ve can offer cappuccino, long black, short black, laté or most other coffee types. In tea I have some smelly teas like English Breakfast and Earl Grey and some nice Fijian tea leaves. Myself I prefer peppermint during the day and chamomile of an evening. If I don’t have either of those I have green tea.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I’ve had a good week. I still haven’t finished my thesis but it gets closer daily and I’m not even going to talk about that. Muffin also was declared healed on Tuesday afternoon so she can again play in the park which she did with a vengeance on our first outing back. This I posted for my weekly smile on Wednesday.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I found a new place to go dancing on Wednesday morning. Wednesday morning is good for me as Roger plays golf so it doesn’t stop him doing anything. It was a great venue with good music and I really enjoyed the morning. I won’t go every week as it is a long drive from home but probably twice a month. Great exercise and I’m sure it is why I feel much more energised this week compared to last week. It really hypes me up.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that Thursday was a day of making our dentist’s pocket a little heavier. At 1pm Roger had a crown and at 2-30 I was in the chair also having a crown. These aren’t cheap but I have to admit I’d prefer to pay the money than lose my teeth. Roger followed this with a trip to the doctor to find the results of his shoulder echo. He has two massive tears in the muscle so I now have to be a little less cruel when he complains that I am asking him to do something that is probably quite painful for him.
Friday we hosted an “afternoon delight” for Noosa Federation of the Arts. They are a small group who raise $30,000 over two years to award as a scholarship for a young opera singer. Most use it to gain experience and further training overseas and I think it is a great cause as our government does not offer lots of funding for the arts. It would be a sad world if we didn’t have literature, art and music.
The next Dame Joan Sutherland award is being judged and awarded during the 2016 Noosa long weekend. The organiser of this event spoke to us and told us some highlights of his career organising events in Western Australia and his eight years with this event which brings world acclaimed shows of all genres to Noosa for a week of over eighty events.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that Friday was also the day the new prompt went out on Times Past Challenge. This time the we are looking at crazes. By writing memoir we can look at the social history so I request that you put what generation you belong to and by also putting a geographical location (country + rural /city) we can look for similarities and differences across the world. The more to join in the more meaningful it becomes. I have to say I am really enjoying reading the entries. Some give me a giggle and others move the heart strings and most bring back more memories of my own.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that my favourite event was the birthday party we attended this morning for Teddy – a two year old staffy.
What was impressive that Teddy the birthday boy got into a scrap with his best friend, another staffy, over one of his birthday presents (Teddy is a boy who doesn’t like to share) and a young woman who works at the doggy day care flipped them both over onto their backs simultaneously, somehow also holding their muzzles and told them off. When she released them they returned to happy play.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I have talked enough about myself and now it is your turn. How has your week been? Have you read any good books or seen any films you’d recommend? How are your projects going and most importantly how is your weather?
Thank you Diana for hosting the coffee share so drop over and say hallo to her and other coffee sharers.
