Yesterday I went out for coffee with a friend who I haven’t seen in person for almost a year. With the ever changing covid restrictions and remote learning curriculum we weren’t able to make it work. Tuesday afternoon I stood in front of my closet trying to figure out what to wear since I have been in jeans and t-shirts for the last year. Since it was a belated birthday celebration I wanted to dress up a little but not look over dressed since we were just going to a coffee shop. Although I would like to blame it on covid and not being anywhere in over a year I’ve never really been good at “business casual”. I ended up putting on a flowered shirt and layered my 2 birthday necklaces. My friend wore also had a cap sleeved slightly ruffled edge shirt on so we were on similar wave lengths.
We did have a couple of funny moments. I thought we were meeting at the cafe and she came to pick me up. After phoning her cell I finally got a hold of her. Then when we got to the coffee shop their square machine wasn’t working. They recently changed their mobile app so they are still working out the kinks. 3pm is the perfect time to go because there wasn’t anyone else in the place. I have mentioned before that it’s been years since I have had a neighbourhood coffee shop to go to. I love sitting at a patio table and people watching. The guy walking his dog (a pug). The police officers riding their bikes (they often stop there for coffee). The runners. I look forward to when I can sit inside and write my blog post while enjoying my morning coffee.
I feel like we are getting closer to going back to life as we knew it before. It’s so nice to be able to sit and catch up face to face.
