If we were having coffee on this last evening of January, I’d be having hot chocolate. It’s a nasty day out, cold and rainy, and I’m happy that you could stop by for a chat and get out of all that mess for a bit.
Can I get you a coffee, hot chocolate, or perhaps some hot apple cider. With this weather, I’m pretty sure something hot is the way to go. Once we get the drinks all sorted, we can listen to the rain fall on the roof and be thankful for blankets, warm beverages, and heat pumps.
Alanis is providing the music this evening. I find her music conducive to writing. I find it, for the most part, soothing on one level or another, even if the lyrics themselves are not for the most part. Yes, I know the lyrics and can sing along to most of the albums (all but that last one I think. Never could get into it.), but I don’t have to sing along. Singing breaks the writing groove after all. I’ll save my singing for the car.
I finished up this week’s #FridayFictioneers post Red on White just before you got here, and yes, Alanis was singing and I was not. I’m not normally this late posting for #FridayFictioneers, but the writing this week has been virtually non-existent. I should have known that it would happen after stating in last week’s coffee share that I wanted to write more. I’ll not be saying that this week!
So are you watching the Super Bowl this weekend? I suppose I will, even without a true rooting interest. It should be a good game, and it is the last one for a while, so I’m going to enjoy it as a casual observer, maybe with a large bowl of popcorn.
I’m listening to (and enjoying) The War of Broken Mirrors – Forging Divinity by Andrew Rowe on Audible. It’s good, but I’m not sure I’ll go for book two. At least not on Audible. It’s only about a twelve hour listen, and I try to get longer books on Audible. It was picked up on a two books for one credit sale though, so I took a chance. You could say that I like to get my credits worth on Audible, so I try to find something at least 20 hours long. Doesn’t always happen, but I try.
As for actual reading, Code Zero by Jonathan Maberry is at the high 30 something percentage of being done. They are shorter books that I found on Audible, but now read through. I like having two books going all the time. One audio, one text. That way there’s always a book to read. I’ll probably do a bit of reading tonight, now that I think about it. I really need to see what’s going to happen with my buddy Joe Ledger when he gets down in the subway tunnel.
Hey, I don’t hear the rain anymore. If you need to make your exit, now would be your time. Have a great weekend, and be careful out there, it’s nasty!
#WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up hosted now by Eclectic Alli that serves as something of a mind-dump for the week. If there are typos and what-not found here, I apologize, but mind-dump. I don’t do a lot of editing here as I like that it is more a stream of consciousness type post, normally written while drinking coffee, listening to music, and reflecting on the week gone by.
