Weekend Coffee Share 1.9.16

Happy first full week of 2016! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. My week was pretty decent. I went grocery shopping, so my cupboards are fully stocked. Please help yourself to the homemade hot chocolate (sorry no marshmallows), coffee (decaf and regular), tea (black and green) and of course water and OJ. I made some banana bread, so have some. It’s pretty tasty if I must say so.

I woke up this morning feeling a little melancholy. Missing family. I called home and probably about 5 minutes into the conversation with my mom Continue reading

Weekend Coffee Share

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Can you believe it – it’s the end of 2015 and the last coffee share?! I know I can’t.

So, I say give yourself a high-five, a fist bump, a belly bump, a booty bump or whatever you do to congratulate yourself.

Usually, I go to church with my family on Christmas Continue reading

If we were having coffee. . .

I’d tell you this week has been pretty light. Nothing much has gone on. Or at least in my world it’s been pretty slow.

Once upon a time (no pun intended) I used to write short stories, plays, and screenplays quite a lot, but that went dormant once I went to college and I’ve never really recovered.  The goal is to freewrite not freetype every morning. I usually wake with a menagerie of ideas and if by chance I got nothin’, I’ll pick from the ideas jar.

The plan: Write for 10 minutes without stopping or lifting the pen from paper, after the time is up put it aside, later read over and edit, and post it the next day. Continue reading

If We Were Having Coffee. .  .

I’d tell you that this is weekend has been pretty brutal. I’m out of meds for my headache, so I’ve been lying on the couch drowning myself with water trying to minimize it. I’ve already exceeded the recommended daily dose of Ibuprofen. I’m sure my liver hates me right about now, but I guarantee that’s nothing for the “love” I have for this headache.

And, yes I will be calling the doctor tomorrow for more meds.

If We Were Having Coffee. . .

I’d tell you, I’m very nearly done with my Christmas Continue reading

Weekend Coffee Share – NaBloPoMo & Other Stuff

Welcome, welcome, welcome! 🙂 I hope ya’ll had a great week. If you’re participating in National Blog Posting Month congratulations on one week under your belt. I started of NaBloPoMo with a bang, but fizzled pretty quick.
