#WeekendCoffeeShare ~ Blustery Week

Welcome! If we were having coffee we’d be enjoying the sunshine from inside today. You know it’s been a strange winter for us when you’re surprised to see that white stuff covering the ground.

370b0ce89f5cf05b6b740e835f4a6221_wind-blowing-animated-gif-wind-wind-clipart-gif_400-377The most unsettling weather this week was the wind storm. Looking back I surprised they let us go out of that afternoon break (at the school). We were all being pushed around and it was so loud that you had to yell to talk to the person beside you. That kind of loud where you come back inside, chat with someone then realize you’re still yelling. ooops

But the ‘I need to get away’ feeling was there all week. As an introvert, I plan regular breaks. The small breaks are fine but I so look forward to the longer breaks. These are times that I can fully recharge; not just top up my battery. I’m so happy that March Break is here!

Oh dear! I’m sorry. What can I pour you to drink? I’m just sipping water right now.

I do enjoy these #WeekendCoffeeShares it’s a wonderful way to hear about your world while I step back from mine for a minute.

Here on Patchwork, I’ve been working behind the scenes to make posting more organized.237728 {hehehe It’s March and I’m still continuing on 2017s Resolutions!} I’ve been deciding what challenges that I want to continue participating in. What posts of my own do I want to do weekly or monthly?  Thinking about how or if, I want to interlink my blogs. I guess it’s sort of Spring Cleaning time.

Do you do a spring clean at your blog? I look forward to popping over to visit. Have a wonderful week.

We Spring Forward…Do you?


Thank you to Nerd in the Brain for hosting #WeekendCoffeeShare Kindly pop over to find out more about this weekly chat.

If we were having coffee..not much going on

If we were having coffee it would be iced again for me. I think I’ll have to sip it a bit to try to stop myself from whining about the heat. Southern Ontario isn’t supposed to have temperatures warmer than Mumbai ! A good thing is with our temperatures being so hot my sister will be used to it for her upcoming trip to Disney.

Humm…other than whining about the weather I don’t have a lot to chat about. We don’t have any more to buy for daughter heading to University (I did post our / my list earlier this week.) Baseball season is winding down for our son…my washing machine is as grateful for that as I am for his dirty pants (another of this weeks posts). It’s generally that point of summer where it feels like it’s too long. I’ve often thought that we should have 6 weeks for summer break and add two weeks worth of breaks to other parts of the year,

Oh..some cheering on t.v. …Have you been watching the Olympics? Our Canadian ladies have been rocking it !!

Well I’m going to take my ice coffee and wander over to PartTime Monster’s blog { } to see what other people are chatting about. Enjoy your day. Thanks for visiting!

Wind { A throwback Thursday post}

“Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I.” : W.O. Mitchel

Bastet tells us that one of the element’s (earth) attributes is:

The Chinese think Earth is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work and stability.

For more explaination on this weeks challenge and how ‘Wind” relates to Earth please visit :

I highlighted Bastet’s information because I think these photos, of a squirrel stealing bird seed during a very windy day shows, “qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work and stability.”
