If we were having coffee today, I would sit, heave a big sigh and tell you why my week felt slow and weird. How would you like your coffee today? I’m going for the iced mocha again since it is still hot and getting hotter!
I think part of the slowness was that I spent two crazy weeks preparing for two big events. The week prior to Memorial Day weekend was spent getting everything ready for my daughter’s college graduation party afterward. I shared this post “The Phoenix Shall fly.”
The second week was spent preparing worship songs and power point slides for my church’s ladies retreat. The retreat, held in Lake Tahoe, was wonderful and filled my soul…and was emotionally draining. And yes, I drank a lot of coffee!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the summer heat is here and is slowing me down. Monday’s temperature is predicted to hit 101 degrees (38 celsius). This heat will not help the severe drought we are having in California and we are experiencing all time water level lows in lakes and reservoirs. The nearby Sierra Nevadas are getting some thunderstorm activity, which may sound nice in theory, but the new underbrush growth will be fire fodder later this summer. To help with my part in water conservation efforts, I posted this last week “15 Water Safety Tips We can All Use.”
If we were having coffee, I would tell you with excitement that I started my link-up blog party The Leisure Link. My post “How to Promote Your Blog Using Link-ups” will take you to the link up page where you can add the link to your favorite post related to all things leisure and recreation.
Now that it is June, I am preparing for the university classes I will be teaching this Fall. I will be excited to teach again after having to take the Spring semester off.

How was your week? I would love to hear about it! And don’t forget to link your post to The Leisure Link!
