If we were having coffee this weekend, we’d be in southern California where it has been as high as 106 degrees this weekend. Today we are expecting a “cool” 100. Currently it is 93. So we would definitely be indoors, preferably down the road at Starbucks where I would love to have my favorite frappuccino, the caramel ribbon crunch. I hope you have a car thought because I don’t have one on this visit and it’s probably about 8 miles, too far to walk!
This is the first year my dad has been gone for Father’s Day. To make it worse, yesterday’s “celebration” of his life could not have gone worse. I won’t go into details but it involves a family member who is feeling pressured and like she is a slave and she is ready to blow. And blow she did. We didn’t expect it, and certainly not from her. She’s not well. Mom says she is not taking her meds (anti depressants and pain pills) so she’s not in a good place right now and we all suffer(ed) for it. She won’t listen to anyone about her meds or calming down or seeing someone she can talk to. Not a good situation.
Anyway, so much for family drama. Let’s move on and enjoy our cold drinks!
What have you been up to? I’m participating in Nerd In the Brain’s summer reading challenge and have completed three challenges, almost four. I’m currently re-reading Anne Frank, Diary of a Young Girl as one of the challenges. I haven’t read it since I was in fifth grade! It’s about time I did.
That’s it for this weekend. I fly home tomorrow afternoon, assuming my sister is in a frame of mind to take me to the airport which is almost an hour away from here. Otherwise, who knows? Maybe I’ll take the bus to LA;s Union Station and take Amtrak. Ai ai ai! Have a super week and let me know how you’re doing in the comments. I’ll try to come around and read all your coffee shares!
