If we were having coffee today, then I would tell you that it has been forever since I last did a coffee share post. I don’t know how long it has been, but let’s not dwell on that. You can find all old coffee share posts in the category Weekend Coffee Share and all new ones (erm future ones as this is the first one) in the category If we were having Coffee.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how happy I am to have you join me today. I’d tell you that I still don’t drink coffee and that we will thus be having tea or water, or that we can have a coffee in a nearby café (but I am frugal…). As the weather is nice (global warming alert) we can find a nice place outside, and if it’s cold there are often blankets and heaters to keep us warm.
If we were having coffee or some other beverage, then I’d ask you how you are. So, how are you doing? I hope that you are happy, that you and your loved ones are in good health, that you have a good life balance. What are your projects, aspirations? What have you been up to lately (if you also do coffee shares then I’ll try to find some time to join you and read up)?
I suppose that you’ll have a lot of questions for me, especially seen my absence from coffee shares and blogging in general. I love blogging, the creativity and exchanges that come with it are so great, but sometimes a break just happens. After my birthday I decided to take things into hand and I am now posting once a week for my 30 to 31 challenge. This week, I suddenly found the time, energy and inspiration to write. That was on Monday. On Monday, I was home alone, I didn’t have to work and spending some time with myself just for myself seems to have rebalanced my energies.
I posted something in German. I know that most of my regular readers don’t really read in German, but I am a German teacher and my blog is also a way for students to find me (they actually do). Lately, many of my students have been asking for audio and video material to use in their own time. I am blessed that I currently have motivated students (that isn’t always the case). As I don’t want to post a simple list, I figured to start a series on my blog where I share some useful resources.
You might have noticed that my blog has changed its appearance. Now, I have a theme that needs visuals, pushing me to be even more creative. You should follow me on Instagram! Sometimes my blog posts lead me to end up posting sketches over there… When I wrote about being eco-friendly, I had to draw this tree:

When I was a kid, a science experiment taught me that rubbish won’t grow, even if we water it daily. What a nightmarish vision, to picture plastic bottles growing on trees 🌳, ready to litter our environment. When we look at the plastic problem, it does seem as if this were true. Plastic is worse than any garden-weeds… In my most recent blogpost I touch upon the question of being environmentally friendly: solveigwerner.com #plasticfree #plasticworld #doesnotgrow #sketch #notolandfill #singleuseplastic #plasticbottle #motherearth #inksketch #gardening
I hope that I’ll be sharing coffee with you many many times in the months to come. But I won’t be making any promises. Speaking of promises, I will do my best to put up a post regarding the 4th edition of the advent calendar! Yes! I will host it again. Hopefully, between now and the 1st of December I’ll be nice and active on my blog as to draw in readers and participants. It’s just such a fun thing, a lot of work, but if everything is done in advance it is manageable. I still haven’t updated my list of participants from last year, and I never posted an overview post. I am sorry about that, but I just fell of planet blogging. And the truth be told, creating a post with about 30 links and no real content just ain’t my cup of tea.
I shall leave you here, my kids want some fresh air and some sun. I’ll try to catch up with you and I’ll try to reply…
It looks like that the #WeekendCoffeeShare has changed host, thus head over to Eclectic Ally to see read her’s and find the links to the other posts.
Thanks for joining me and have a lovely weekend!
