#WeekendCoffeeShare (April 12, 2020)

Happy Easter Sunday to everyone. I am once again joining in with #WeekendCoffeeShare. I just had some decaf and right after that had the only fizzy drink I like, called “Dubbelfrisss”. It is only slightly fizzy though. Have a drink with me and let’s catch up.

If we were having coffee, I would ask all my fellow #AtoZChallenge participants how you’re doing on the challenge. I am so far doing pretty well. The J and K are always hard letters for me, but as you can tell, I found a word for the letter J. I am almost decided on my letter K post too.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you about all the fun the littles (inner children) have had reading jokes and free stories. We are a member of an E-mail list called Laughing_Place, but rarely even read the E-mails sent out until this past week. We laughed out loud at some of the jokes. As Milou said, the littles also had lots of fun going on a seesaw. We went on it again on Friday.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I got a lovely Easter card from a woman who lives at another home in our care facility. We can’t see each other much now that the day center is closed, but I talked to her from across her fence.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you about the blog upgrade I purchased. I have the Premium plan now. As you may be able to tell, I now have my own domain and all WordPress.com ads should be gone. I also got Google Analytics, which I’m having a love/hate relationship with. I’m pretty unsure about all the technical design stuff I can do now, as I’m not tech savvy at all. I’m still not entirely sure this was a wise purchase, but so far I’m not regretting it. I might once the 30-day refund period is over though.

I am thinking about starting my blog’s Facebook page back up. This upgrade also comes with cool social sharing options, so I’d bettter make use of them. I want to get a cover photo for my FB page then though and would love a logo for my blog. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

If we were having coffee, I would share that I reached my daily step goal certainly on both Thursday and Friday and probably on Wednesday too. However, then my Fitbit wouldn’t cooperate, so it says I got 33 steps only. I in fact got nearly 13K steps on Thursday and nearly 12K on Friday.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I made a soap for a staff who’s leaving in a week or so. She is a substitute for someone who’s on maternity leave and that other staffer will return on the 21st. The soap is a butterfly that’s been scented with lavender fragrance oil.

If we were having coffee, lastly I would tell you that there’s a new client at my home. I’m struggling a bit with it, but she seems nice.

What have you been up to lately?

  1. I love this idea of if we had coffee. You’ve definitely kept yourself busy!

    Congratulations on taking the next step, I was gifted premium by a very supportive partner and I love it! When you are able to personalise your website it inspires you so much.

    The themes are user friendly, just like when you first set up your blog. It might take a little playing with but they have a handy preview button that takes away the fear of change!

    As for a cover photo – have a look through the themes first, you might have a stunning photo and then end up with no where to put it!

    Good luck with your logo! I can’t wait to see everything!

    I’m here if you need anything, feel free to message.

  2. That is a pretty card! It seems like you have a friend. The soap you made is beautiful. In fact I was reading about how to make soaps this morning. Did you buy a soap making kit? Or how did you make it? I am interested, but using lye kind of makes me nervous with the fumes that comes of them. I am sensitive to things like that. I would love to know how you did. All the best, and Happy Easter!

    1. Thanks so much for commenting. Yes, I think the card is great.

      I make melt and pour soap. That’s the most basic form of soap making, where you simply melt soap base, add colorants and fragrances and other stuff like herbs or the like if you want. Then you pour the liquid soap base into a mold and let it harden. I cannot use lye either due to being blind. I did originally buy a soap making kit. Now I just select my own supplies.
