#WeekendCoffeeShare – Running Behind

cappuccino on table

If we were having coffee, I tell you that I am running behind this week.  I keep telling myself that it’s okay, but to be honest, I don’t like it.  The weekly #FridayFictioneers post isn’t done, and the same can be said of the coming week’s episode of Warriors.

But it’s Saturday morning now, and there’s coffee to be had.  I’ve got a fresh pot of Seattle’s Best just a room away, eggs cooked in a coffee cup, and Counting Crows playing in the background.  Things are near perfect!  Can I get you some coffee?  There’s tea if you prefer or water.  As for me, the need for caffeine is real this morning.

Work got me behind this week.  We were holding a class, an informal one but still, the requirements of a week of class being what they are, well it wears on a person.  The waking an hour early every morning is the worst, as the early morning has never been a friend of mine.  That combined with the always on feeling, even during lunch, can get a little extra tiring for an introvert such as myself.  (Sometimes you just need 30 minutes with the door closed.)  I love my job though, so I’m learning to deal with the early mornings and trying to get my recharge time when I can.

Time for another cup?  I think I will get one too.

The only thing to report on the writing front this week is Episode 4 of Warriors.  Hopefully, I’ll have a #FridayFictioneers posted before days end, but to be honest, looking at the day ahead of me, I can see it happening and not at the same time.  Tomorrow at the worst I should think.

At least the week didn’t stop me from making progress in my reading.  The ride to work is spent listening to the Bible on Audible and though my mind drifts some in the early morning, thoughts of the day or the day before coming unbidden, I feel this time is a benefit.  Throughout the day while eating or some such, I’m always able to catch a few pages of a book stored on the phone.  (real reading here, not listening)  I’m in the 4th book of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, Wizard and Glass.  The horrible movie almost turned me away from the series, but I’m glad I stuck in there.  As the series has rolled on, it has picked up speed and is now rolling along at a breakneck pace.  I always look forward to the snatched away minutes that I spend in that universe.  The ride home is back to Audible.  This time for the 2nd series that I’m currently engrossed in.  This series is The Demon Cycle by Peter V. Brett.  I’m in the middle of The Desert Spear right now.  Unfortunately, I fell asleep while it played last night.  Now I’ve got to find my place again.

My running is still a sore spot for me.  To be more specific, the sore spot is my right hip.  It doesn’t seem to matter what I do, it just won’t get better, (I’ve got ice on it right now) and there’s a race next weekend.  Ugh!  All I can do is see how it goes, but I’ve got a pretty good idea how that will be.  After next weekend, I’ll probably find myself at the chiropractor.  Something I’ve never done, but it seems to have helped my daughter, so I’m ready to bite the bullet and give it a try.

That’s enough about my week.  How was yours?  Tell me down in the comments or write your own coffee share post!  It’s all in fun, and we have quit a nice little community here that seems welcoming to all!


#WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up 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.

It is hosted by Eclectic Alli. Check out her post for the week and maybe post a share of your own!

#weekendcoffeeshare – Overdoing it

IMG_20160408_194710083If we were having coffee, I would apologize for missing last week’s coffee share and commit to starting again fresh. Fresh, like this wonderful 8 O’clock Coffee that we’re sipping hot from the Ninja Coffee brewing thing. It’s a great little machine that occupies the space now vacated by the Keurig that once lived on the counter-top.

Speaking of last week’s coffee share, I should tell you that what happened was completely my fault. The weekend went something like this. It was the first weekend off (first day for that matter), in a few weeks. I was tired and not feeling the best, but I had high hopes for the weekend and all that I would do with it. Saturday morning would consist of a run and then the rest of the day I would get lots of stuff done, including my #weekendcoffeeshare.
