Colorado Springs is full of delightful places to spend an afternoon. As I continue to write Colorado Staycation posts I must include Cheyenne Cañon and Helen Hunt Falls. Located in southwest Colorado Springs the Cañon can be found along the same route from downtown Colorado Springs to the Broadmoor Hotel and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
Over the past couple of months we’ve had a houseful of people while another family lived with us off and on. They were selling their house, then waiting to close on their new house. It was great and we are happy to have the space for people to hang for a few days, or weeks. But now they’ve moved out of our house and into their new one, and I have space in my mind to think about getting back into routine.
My focus on Sunday evening was …getting Breakfast ready for the week.
It has been quite awhile since a Sponsorship Saturday has appeared here on the blog. Every once in awhile I’ve been sending stories and public domain books in our letters to sponsor children. The response has been fantastic. The kids of all ages seem to like the stories.
Earlier in the month I found another story for the children we sponsor through Compassion. As I read the story and thought about it, a topic from Scripture came to mind. So, I spent some time putting it all together and sent The Sheep and the Pig along with a letter to our sponsored children.
Exploring the Local Coffee Shops: The Coffee Exchange
We are on a quest find the local cafes and coffee shops, tea rooms and diners, in search of delicious coffee, tea and local flare.
As I partner with my daughter, Maizy, we’ll each share our experiences and individual thoughts. This week, we’re talking about The Coffee Exchange, located at 526 S Tejon, in downtown Colorado Springs.
The Coffee Exchange is located downtown at Cimarron and Tejon. There are a variety of tables and plenty of space for a energetic downtown atmosphere, while still being cozy. The walls were covered in local art, and there was good reading material on the coffee tables near the back of the shop. That is where we settled in for about an hour, on the sofas at the back of the cafe. That gave us a wonderful view of the entire shop.
It is always so exciting to find one of these green packages in the mailbox! I’ve been a part of the Earring of the Month club for about 2 years now. As much as I love them, what I get really excited about is learning about the women who made the earrings. Here is a photo of the beautiful, unique earrings that arrived this earlier this week.
