Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some timely  catching up with friends (old and new)!

If we were having coffee, I’d ask you how you did during week 4 of the WuFlu Quarantine.

I’m still working. My peers and I keep wondering if our work will be suspended, but there’s a new operation starting today, i.e. half of us will be calling people back to help them complete the Census. I’m thankful that I’m part of that operation and also get to help recruit. So I should be able to count on work for the month at least.

It was an odd Holy Week with churches closed. I complete the two scripture reading plans I’d chosen for lent and for Holy Thursday, my mother and I watched a Holy Thursday mass with the cardinal of Chicago, whom I think is rather average. Friday we watched Bishop Barron, who’s a better speaker and today we watched a local mass. On the one hand, it’s nice that we have so many choices, but just watching is not the same.

We had a good Easter brunch and in the evening we had our first extended family Zoom session. The technology is so helpful, but again a sloppy second to real interaction. I do hope that after the quarantine we learn that real interaction is much better.

We had a good ham dinner for Easter, with traditional side dishes – scalloped potatoes, grilled asparagus, and green beans followed by ice box cake.

I’m behind in my reading according to Goodreads. Ugh! I’m not exactly into any of the books I’m in the middle of. Not sure if I should drop one and start something new.

I continue to love the Hillsdale College’s Constitution 101 course. There are three professors and they draw from documents that influenced the US Constitution. There’s so much fascinating context.

Boy, I do hope the quarantine’s lifted May 1. I need a deadline, a goal.

  1. My heartfelt sympathies. Quarantine is definitely not an easy process — but I am glad you found Zoom. I also had a session with my family yesterday (second one, as we did one last month), and even though it is virtual it is great to see everyone’s face and get a monthly report on how everyone is doing (so far, safe and well). One reason I am doing the A to Z April Blogging Challenge is to keep myself occupied at least until May 1. After that I will have to come up with a new series so I don’t go stir crazy. Hang in there. It probably won’t end by May 1, but there may be easing as summer approaches.
