#weekendcoffeeshare: Anticipating the Cape Town Jazz Festival…

If we were having coffee today I’d tell you that I’ve done the editorial calendar for the blogging from A to Z Challenge. It’s the first time I’m participating and I know how it goes…life gets in the way and I miss one day of blogging, then another, then another…I want to be prepared for those days when I get home too late and too tired to blog.

Oh yes, and for the first week or so of the challenge I’ll be on holiday in Cape Town and may be too tired from exploring to blog. Or not…we’ll see.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you how excited I am to be going to Cape Town at the end of the month. Che and I are going to the Cape Town Jazz Festival. We try to go every year and have missed it for the last two. It’s such an amazing festival, the vibe indescribable.  It’s the 16th year that it’s been running, initially known as the southern hemisphere version of the North Sea Jazz Fest. Check out the amazing lineup here.

From Al Jarreau to The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, from Victor Masondo and Friends to Yvonne Chaka Chaka. I’m getting goose bumps just writing about this :-)! It’s two nights of music spread among five stages. CAN’T WAIT!

If we were having coffee I’d tell you that spending time with family was the most precious time I spent this week. I upgraded my Dad’s iPad to the latest OS, and am trying to get the photos and contacts from my Mom’s HTC onto her laptop (or her Google account) so that they can be transferred to her new iPhone. Yeah, I’m a shameless Apple fan and am succeeding in getting all of my family onto Apple products too – well, except Che and my brother and sister in law. Clearly lots of work to be done there.

In any event, I’m searching for the HTC Wildfire device driver for Windows 7 so if you can point me in the right direction I’d be grateful. I’ll buy the coffee for the next month.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I got to day seven of the Photo 101 course and because I was away from home, didn’t complete the last three assignments. Maybe I still will and use them as posts for next week. I have some of the pics lined up already.

If we were having coffee I’d mention how excited I am that my toastmasters friend, Tracy has joined Sparky’s Blog Challenge – welcome Tracy and I am so looking forward to your witty and authentic writing. If you have a moment, go on by her blog Trasles, and check out Sparky’s too.
