#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019-03-16

If we were having coffee, I may just sip along on a little something else if that suits you. You see, while it’s still early, I’ll be heading to bed soon. Tomorrow starts long hours at work for a bit and I may as well rest while I can. Let me say now that if I’m absent for a week or two, it’s work’s fault and like Arnold, I’ll be back.

There is a pot in the kitchen ready to go if you want fresh, hot coffee. All’s to do is hit the button and presto wammo, coffee. It’s amazing the time we live in.

So tonight, we’re listening to Smashing Pumpkins. They played 1979 on the radio earlier and it put me in the mood.

I managed a decent amount of writing during the week. Mostly at work on lunch break. That trend will come to a screeching halt this week. Oh well, what you gonna do, right? While all of that lunch break writing was for my book, I did manage to write and publish on the blog a #FridayFictioneers story titled “No Fingers, No Play” while at home one evening.

I had a few runs this week. The most in the past six months. It’s still not enough, but it’s coming along. That’s another thing that will be cut way back because of the upcoming work schedule, but like I said earlier, oh well.

I think I’m going to head out. Hope I’m not being short or anything, it’s just that I want to make sure everything is good for the morning. Lots to do, you know?

Anyway, ya’ll have a great week, and I’ll see you when I can.


#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.

You should give it a try!

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019-13-10

If we were having coffee, we would be sipping some nice cold brew as it’s been a warm weekend, and it just seems right. There’s some music playing, right now it’s a live version of ‘Round Here’ from Counting Crows, and it’s getting really close to beddy-bye time.

Since it’s a little late, and I’m tired, I’ll be quick.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019-03-01

If we were having coffee, we would be drinking some fresh brewed Seattle’s Best coffee and listening to Jimmy Buffett. Tonight’s set is getting going with ‘A Pirate Looks at 40.’ Jimmy and I both have put that one astern and that’s alright. Beats the alternative they say.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019-02-24

If we were having coffee, we would be enjoying a little iced coffee as we creep ever so close to having to head off to bed so as to not struggle all day tomorrow. As a matter of fact, many people tell me that I’m crazy to drink coffee this late, but it has never effected my sleep, so I’ll keep on keeping on, I think. If the caffeine will keep you up, we can probably find something a little less stimulating.

We are listening to some music, not playing loud enough to interrupt the conversation, but loud enough to hear. Right now, Alanis is asking if we are still mad? I’m not, but I can appreciate her asking.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019-02-16

If we were having coffee, I’d offer you something nice to drink. I have coffee, tea, and perhaps a few other things that may suit you. Let’s see what we can rustle up. I’m having coffee myself. Left-over from this morning, but microwaved to boiling so it’s all good. If you help me finish off this old pot, we can put on a new one.

Now that we’re all settled, we can relax a bit, talk, and listen to a bit of music. I’ve got Jimmy Buffett playing “He Went to Paris” right now and after that, who knows? I like my Jimmy Buffett. Maybe it’s the sound and feel of the islands, where the weather suits my clothes, if I can borrow that phrase from the man himself. In these winter months, it’s nice to think of the tropics and times when it was not so cold.

#WeekendCoffeeShare 2019-02-08

If we were having coffee, we would be sitting here in the near dark with naught but the light of the computer screen and lava lamp. Willie Nelson is playing all his greatest hits for us, and there is a fresh pot of coffee just in the kitchen there. Won’t you help yourself to a cup or maybe a bit of tea if you would rather?

It’s been a pretty good week as writing goes. Work was a bit slower, the weather was a lot better, and on the whole, I had some time and energy at the end of most days to devote to it. Not always a lot of time, but I like to get a little done everyday if possible.

#FridayFictioneers – S’mores


PHOTO PROMPT © Anshu Bhojnagarwala

The rain was gone, and the kids wanted s’mores.

“No way,” I called back on the drive home. “Wood’s wet.”

“S’mores, s’mores, s’mores,” came the raucous call from the backseat.

Pulling in the drive I said, “go in. Get ready. I’ll start the fire.” I winked at my wife. There was a little dry kindling hid back. Maybe I could get something going. She smiled back.

They cheered. Then I did my Big Bad Wolf impression, huffing and puffing until a tendril of smoke burst to flame. Extremely proud, I called up to the house.

“Quiet. You’ll wake the kids.”
