Hello again and welcome to this week’s coffee share. There is the usual coffee, tea and etcetera AND this week there is cake too! This is to make up for the paucity of cake since the start of the year. Gosh has it been more than a month already? Without cake…!
Chè made his signature carrot cake with cream cheese frosting on Friday and we’ve been feasting on it ever since. With tea. With coffee. With basically anything. It goes with basically anything.
Workwise the week was busy with me delivering training. Yesterday I visited my folks and helped my Mom make her first loaf of bread in the new breadmaker, and today I cleaned my office.
Today of course is Valentine’s Day, so happy Valentine’s Day. We don’t celebrate on the day as a matter of principle – we don’t buy into the commercial hype (although this year it has been subdued relative to previous years). Chè and I are contrary about it – we celebrate after – as a matter of principle. Just like eating carrot cake at any time of the day. With tea, with coffee and etcetera. It’s also like spending the day in one’s pyjamas (I’ve never done that <insert angel emoji>) although with the pandemic many people have been doing just that. I read somewhere that retailers saw an uptick in the sales of comfortable clothes and sweat pants in 2020.
I make a point of wearing ‘going-out clothes’ on working days, putting on shoes 😉 and even some eyeliner. I have many good clothes going to waste in the darkness of the closet.
Standing desk converter
I’m thinking of getting a standing desk converter. I invested in a good chair but sometimes I just want to stand and move a bit. I saw one that is versatile in that it also doubles as a couch desk. The online shop is apparently giving one away as a prize so I’m waiting until the 26th to see if I’ve won. If I haven’t then I’ll order it. I’ve got to try.
That’s it for today. How was your week? Tell me all about it.
Until next Sunday, have a wonderful week.
