Saturday Morning Coffee Talk

Whew! What a WEEK. We arrived home late Monday night from Arizona. Fortunately it was a fairly uneventful trip home, despite all the drama of the week in Scottsdale. I still can’t wait to tell you all about the resort, but that’s a post for another time.


My son stayed home on Tuesday to recuperate, although he was feeling much better by then. I have spent the week trying to catch up on work and laundry, but I haven’t been feeling so well, myself.

I admit to spending a couple mornings curled up on the couch binge-watching the first season of When Calls The Heart. It’s a show on the Hallmark channel, loosely based on a series of books I read several times over when I was a teenager. Did anyone else read those? They were written by Janette Oke. I just learned about the TV show, and Season 2 starts in a few weeks so I’m trying to catch up. 

In other news, I am just trying to stave of seasonal depressive disorder. The weather this week had been horrendous. I hate April. This is my least favorite time of year to live in Pennsylvania. It seems like spring should be here by now, but it feels more like November.

Today the sun is shining, at least, but the wind sounds dreadful. I know it will get warmer. It always does. But right about now, it seems like it never will.

I’m hoping to feel caught up by the end of the weekend so next week I can start working ahead again. I actually have ANOTHER trip to Arizona planned. I’m headed back to Phoenix for a blogging conference in less than three weeks. I’m half dreading it and half looking forward to it. I hope I can make some fresh, happy memories because right now the area invokes some mixed emotions. I’m sure that’s normal after everything last week, but it makes me sad because I love it out there.

I’ll be staying at the Phoenician this time, which I hear is fabulous. I can’t wait to compare it to the Hyatt Regency, where we stayed last week. I’ll be writing up a post about each for my Travel section.

And that’s about all I’ve got. I need to get upstairs and make something of myself. I’m still sitting around in my pajamas. Sometimes it’s nice to have a lazy day, but I’ve had too many of those this week, and I’m ready to get back to normal.

Have a lovely weekend!
