If we were having coffee, I would share with you that my run of tea has ended. This week we are back to virtual coffees.
What are we sipping? You might ask.
Coffee this morning is a butter pecan. The smell of it is butter with a sweet nut. It is almost black in my mug, which is a big change from the last few weeks of describing translucent tea colours. There is nothing translucent about this cup of coffee. It has a bitter, nutty taste. The after effect is almost oily or buttery. Overall, it is a strong welcoming sip of coffee.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that my younger son is attending a summer program called Reading University. It is a three-week program that focuses on reading. I am so excited that he is attending. Missing grade one during the first COVID shut down has been hard for catching up to grade level reading. This program should have him reading at grade level in three weeks. During our last trip to the bookstore, he picked out a novel by Kevin Sands called The Black Thorn Key. We just finished reading it together and are moving on to two in the series. We both enjoyed book 1.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that my oldest boy and I broke-put the Backgammon board. I haven’t played since I was a kid, so I had to review the rules. We had a blast, and it is our new favourite game. We also had a couple of games of Scrabble. It was fun too. Of course, there was some baseball played at the park and a bit of croquet.
If we were having coffee, I would pass you the coffee pot, smile, and sit back to listen to the details of your week.
