Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about going to a party for my niece’s birthday and nephew’s confirmation at my sister-in-law’s brother’s home where I got to see his newest additions to his menagerie/home. Marty now has a cavy named Bucky and a hyacinth macaw named Baby Blue. For years Marty has had an aviary in his basement. I never even heard of these species till yesterday.
Saturday I had lunch with my old friend Luzanne. It’s tough for us to find time that’s good to meet so I’m delighted that we succeeded. After lunch we took a free walking tour of Chicago’s Riverwalk given by the Chicago Architecture Center. Though rain cut the tour short, it was a fun experience. Afterwards I took Luzanne to Uniqlo, which she’d never been to before. She loved it. I’m cheered as I’m a big Uniqlo fan as they have quality basics for good prices. They have lots of sales, so if you see something great there, wait a week or two because it’s sure to be marked down.
I was delighted by Doris Day’s Lucky Me and disappointed with the film Like Someone in Love. There’s no love in the film and if you watch I just bet 12 minutes from the end you’ll be urging the silly girl to go see a doctor and for the girl or old man to “Call the police!” which any sensible person would do. Ugh!!
I’ll watch more Flambards episodes to counteract the disappointing effect of Like Someone in Love.
I’m reading a biography, geared for children, on E.B. White. I’m learning a lot from this charming book on the author of Charlotte’s Web.
As I can’t go on forever with just a part time library job, I applied to the Census office for work a few months back. Now they’re hiring and I just had a phone interview and job offer for full time work. If it makes sense for you or someone you know, people can apply at 2020Census.gov/jobs. Pay is above average and varies according to locale.
