VIRTUAL COFFEE DATE | VOL V

Let’s have coffee again. Or maybe iced coffee as temperatures finally picked up here. I love our monthly chats organised by Lecy and I am always looking forward. Ok, let just not waste precious time and get into catching up:

If you and I had coffee…
I would ask if you made a summer bucket list. I always do and it’s just fun. And while we are talking about lists. Remember that time early 2000 when the blogging world made those 100 things in 1000 days lists? I finally made my own version. Still a work in progress but I plan on finishing before my milestone birthday comes up in three years.

If you and I had coffee…
I would tell you that I made the most of my kindle unlimited subscription already by reading 6 books and just started 7th. Most of them have been on my TBR for long time. It feels good to be able to keep on reading stories I love.

If you and I had coffee…
I’d ask if you ever had a really depressing birthday. My last one was rather sad, I felt alone all day and depressed and was disappointed by a family member forgetting my birthday all together. I had dinner with hubby and my parents at night which was a good ending to that awful day but still it couldn’t quite make up for the previous hours…

If you and I had coffee…
I tell you about my experience of my first (medical) botox injection. It is done for migraine prevention and after years and years of popping pills we wanted to try out something new. While I am not too fond of needles I am not exactly scared. However getting those 15-20 shots in my face and nape was a really unpleasant experience. It actually hurt too and I am not looking forward to doing that every 3 month. Do you have experience with that?

If you and I had coffee…
I’d mention that I recently purchased an eucalyptus plant and have no idea how to take care of it. Currently it seems to like the hot weather and heat on my balcony. It’s been sprouting twigs like crazy. However I have no clue what to do in when winter comes. And can I cut those twigs for my vases? Any ideas?

If you and I had coffee…
I would wonder how you’ve been doing. What has been going on for you? Are there any struggles? What good came your way? I would like to know.

I’ll hope I see again next month for our little chat. For now I have to keep going. We’ll meet friends for dinner tonight and I want to do a few more things before heading out the door.
Happy weekend

Tobia

  1. It also makes me feel bad when people forget my birthday (especially when I am trying to be on top of everybody’s birthdays all the time). I hope you still had a nice dinner with your family!
    I just recently learned about Botox for migraine prevention… and if the process was uncomfortable and painful, I hope that it at least helps with the headaches!

    1. Unfortunately the last couple weeks the migraines have been back so not sure if it helps… and yes it feels bad being treated that way.

  2. Sorry to hear that your birthday wasn’t the best. I’ve had birthdays in the past that have fell a bit flat, but it’s good your day ended well. I love that you’ve got a eucalyptus plant! You’re right that they like heat, and they grow well in fairly dry conditions. Twig clippings are also a beautiful addition to flower bouquets and vases. Lovely to have coffee with you this month, Tobia!

    1. Love my new plant too and will do clippings I am sure. Just hope winter will not her.
      I try to put that birthday experience behind me. Can’t have all great ones I guess.

  3. An iced coffee does sound good. It’s getting warmer here! I haven’t made a summer bucket list this year but have done them in years past. I actually completed a 101 in 1001 list a few years ago. It was a lot of fun to make that list and check things off. Great job on getting so much reading done. It’s always nice to know when you’ve made a service you pay for worth it! I’m so sorry you had a crummy birthday. I usually don’t celebrate my birthday because it’s around the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States and as a kid, it was often overlooked. It’s not a good feeling, but I’m glad yours ended on a more positive note. I have terrible migraines and have wondered about getting Botox for them. I hope you are able to get some relief from the injections. Tobia, I’m so glad you were able to join the coffee date this month. Hope to see you next time! <3

    1. I am sorry to here you also suffer from migraines. It’s nothing you wish on a person. And I guess I’ve been blessed with many spectacular birthdays so I felt this one so much. I’ve always appreciated that mine wasn’t near any big holidays. I am sorry yours gets overlooked. Oh and I’ve to check your blog for the 100in1000. Still working on my list but it’s so exciting.

  4. Ugh, my birthday last year was a huge bummer, too: I invited a bunch of friends – maybe 25? – to a bar, sort of an open house, hoping people would come buy & hang & come & go throughout the night. Only five people came, & most of the others didn’t even bother to tell me they weren’t coming. I had a lot of fun with the friends who did come, so I shouldn’t have been so upset, but afterward, I cried myself to sleep. My husband was so mad at me, saying I was being ungrateful, but it just really bummed me out that so many people were so un-thoughtful about RSVPing.

    I’m so sorry to hear your birthday was sort of sad, too. Mine is next month, & I confess that I’m a little bit worried after the way last year went… I guess it happens sometimes, but it sure does make me feel old.

    1. I am sorry to hear that. The feeling is horrible – your friends have probably just been forgetful. It’s very disrespectful in my opinion. I tend to think I’m not liked anymore but that’s probably because I’m not too self confident. Not sure if it’s an age thing. I remember a similar scenario at 18. Wishing you all the best for this years birthday and most importantly that you’ve got your loved ones around.
