Hello and welcome. Come on in. What would you like today to drink? Tea? Herbal? Coffee? Hot Chocolate? I’ve got most things hot. Not so much cold. I personally stick with water so I never bother buying anything else. Hold on, I think my husband may be in an orange juice craving period so we probably have some OJ.
If we were having coffee I’d start by saying “What a week.” I think the American elections really threw some of us for six. I’m sure they delighted others. Initially I was overcome. How could someone who was a complete unknown apart from their high profile celebrity status life become President of the USA? Why did people not care that he inappropriately touched women. That he felt his power gave him this right. Why did people not care that he was running a campaign based on hatred? Why did people vote for a man that has bankrupted his companies at least four times? Is this a great achievement that gives you superior accumen to run one of the biggest economies in the world? Why did….? Why did….? But no matter why they did and now the world has to hope that the rhetoric was purely that. And I sincerely hope that the hatred goes away. And I sincerely hope that he turns out to be the President that those people who were willing to accept those behaviours thought that he would be. I hope he is a President for all people. Time will tell.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that our thunderstorms are starting. Yesterday we went to a birthday party but not before the birthday girl rang and asked if she could cook in our ovens as they had lost their power. Believe it or not in the five years we have been in this house it is the first time that the oven has been turned on. I had to get the manual out to work out how to do it and luckily it worked and even luckier it was not something that was going to mean I would have to clean the oven afterwards.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we are going on a harbour cruise leaving in a few minutes and of course the thunderstorm arrived.It could be wet or it may have gone by the time we get going. That is the good thing with these tropical storms – they arrive quickly and leave almost as quickly.
Can you just entertain yourself for a bit or perhaps come back in a couple of hours….. Great.
Thanks for waiting. We had a wonderful cruise. It was the 30th Anniversary of our Toastmasters group and the weather gave us a bit of everything including pelting rain but finishing with a wonderful sunset.
Now it is your turn. What have you been up to? Have you done anything, read anything, seen anything. How cold is it where you are. I had the first swim of our summer season today, (most people have been swimming for weeks but I like it hot.) Thanks Diana for hosting our weekend coffee shares and thank you for dropping in.
