VIRTUAL COFFEE DATE | VOL IV

Oh hello…

it’s time for our virtual coffee date again. I’ve been looking forward to meeting up with you my friends to check in how things are going and what is new with you.

I would…
grab the largest coffee available. Lately I’ve been sleeping restlessly and waking up too early. So it’s been 4-6 coffees a day. Probably not the healthiest choice but it does taste good. And I do drink them with oat milk. Does that count towards health awareness?

I would…
Want to tell you about last weeks vacation in Copenhagen. Such a beautiful place. We’ve been spending four days there in an apartment directly overlooking the water. It could have been anywhere to make me happy. But it was nice to explore the city on two days too. The weather was not too nice and two days it rained but I finally got some reading in. Also I was able to watch the cruise ships and ferries on their way into the harbour. Such a spectacle. As for exploring the city while walking lots we also rented e-scooters to move around the city. It was a fun way to explore. Lots of old castles, buildings, beautiful parks and waterfronts. Of course on our last day a) the sun came out and b) I saw areas I would have liked to explore a bit more thoroughly. Guess we have to be back. Have you been to Copenhagen?

I would…
want to know what your blogging workflow is. I recently wrote a post about how I blog and ever since wondered how others been doing it. Everyone of us probably does something, feeling totally normal not worth mentioning and then for someone else it’s totally mind-blowing and a game changer.

I would…
to tell you that I scored a great kindle unlimited deal and can read 3 months for free. I’ve been saving up books on a separate list for when I sign up. I usually do that when I know I go on vacation or have lots of time on my hand to read. So I am looking forward to read a few books that have been on my TBR a long time for the next months. I also hope this will end my reading slug. If you want to follow along come be friends on Goodreads.

I would…
ask your opinion on something too. As you might know I’ve been freelancing for my third year now. While the first two have been (financially) very successful this year is very tough. I am far from reaching my goal I set (already almost half). So I wonder if I should get worried or what to do. It’s not that I can’t pay my bills, Ive got money saved but when is the point to start worrying. Being new to this it’s kinda hard to tell. Any freelancing friends reading along?

I would…
on a more happy note tell you that I itch doing more crafts and sewing projects lately. I met with a friend and we made some colorful new jewelry for summer and spring. I will need to take some photos to show. Also I’ve been planning quite a few sewing projects. I finished a shirt with fabric I inherited from my grandma. Only took me 10 years to start cutting into it. But now I have 3 more projects lined up. I am trying to reduce my fabric stash. I have bought so many with projects in mind and never got around to doing them.

Before we leave I would…
want to know what you would like to tell me about. What was the happiest moment since we last sat together?

Then I would gather my things, finish the last drop of coffee and we head of into the day. Later I would stop at Lecy to have a look around who else met up for coffee. Hope to see you around next months my friends.

Happy May to you

Tobia

  1. A trip to Copenhagen sounds wonderful! I have a little bit of Danish heritage so I’d love to visit one day. And how great that you have free access to kindle books! The happiest moment since we last sat together was celebrating my first mother’s day as a mum myself! Lovely to have tea with you again, Tobia!

    1. It must be quite special to have that first Mother’s Day. Congrats to that. And yes always collecting more books than I will ever be able to read. It’s like my own private library.

  2. Oh, ma , freelancing full-time sounds so stressful to me. I do some freelancing on the side, but more as a hobby; I still have a regular 9-to-5 day job. I wish I could be more helpful on that front, but mostly I just wish you well & hope something comes along that increases your workload & income & makes this a non-issue for you.

    And I’d LOVE to visit Copenhagen. You’re fortunate to be able to travel to nearby countries so easily!

    And now I’m thinking of blogging about my blogging workflow… so meta…

    1. Ha, working full time again sounds to me like stress right now. But it’s all what you make of it. I know if I have to I could go back I just don’t want to. I also know I’ll figure it out. Right now I just don’t know many freelancers to discuss this with. Thanks for your wishes. I am fortunate to be able to travel to all those countries in Europe in a heartbeat.
      And yes please blog about your workflow I would love to read that – with your full time job, side hustle, many books you read and blogging- this crazy cat of yours…

  3. Copenhagen sounds like a lovely place to visit. What a fun trip! I really need to invest in Kindle unlimited. I know I would get a lot of use out of it, but I have so many other books I need to get through before I get any more. Can’t wait to see the jewelry you’ve been making. And sewing? I’m jealous because I want to learn how to make my own clothes. I’m so glad you were able to join the coffee date this month, Tobia! Hope to see you again next time!

    1. I collect all the books I want to read on kindle unlimited and then just sign up for a few months until I’m done with the list. I have found that the selection- at least for amazon German – isn’t as great as for the .com. But I also have a huge TBR pile sitting here that could use some love. Sewing is a work in progress. It took a while until I was comfortable wearing the things I made outside of my house. I started with making totes and bags. It’s good for teaching the basics and doesn’t need much material.

  4. Blog workflow? Does that exist? Just kidding. I’m going to jump over to your post about it because I’m still figuring it out. I do know that I need to be realistic about what I can do so I feel accomplished and want to keep doing it.

    My happiest moment was probably snuggling my kiddos on Mother’s day while we were outside and enjoying the sunshine.

    I’m looking forward to next month!

    1. Haha yeah I don’t really know if it does exist. Enjoying sunshine with family is always a good thing. Hope to see you next month.

  5. I always like the thought of freelancing when people talk about it, but I’d probably find it very stressful to meet my financial goals when it’s not set in stone how the year is going to go… so unfortunately I don’t have any advice here, but I do hope that works picks up in the second half of the year.

    As you know, I just returned from Germany, so that’s been the highlight of my month!!

    1. Yeah for your highlight! Hard to top that. Looking forward reading all your recaps. Tough thing is I would like more income but not really more work. I am demanding like that. Guess I’ve got to suck it up for a while.
