#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019/12/07

If we were having coffee, I’d offer you up a cup of this nice Seattle’s Best coffee that I’ve been sipping for the past couple hours and welcome you into this big College Football Saturday. There’s coffee in the pot, taco soup on the stove, and it’s a great day to eat some good food and watch a little championship football.

Later tonight, after the SEC game, I may take a little break from football and watch the last episode of the the first season of The Expanse on Prime. I don’t really get into a lot of shows nowadays, but a while back I told my wife that I wanted a really good sci-fi show to watch, so we tried a couple things on the Sci-Fi channel but they weren’t that great so we’ve kicked them to the curb.

So far, The Expanse has been really good. I think there are four seasons on Prime so I’ve got a ways to go yet and hopefully the quality will stay good throughout. I’ve got high hopes.

It’s been a pretty good week. I got some good workouts in, a couple of good runs and a couple of crossfit style workouts as well. I’ve been happy with my running lately. I’ve cut the mileage down a bit in order to fit in some strength work in hopes that a more well rounded fitness will allow this old body avoid injury.

Ooh, soup’s ready! Let’s go get some.

Ah, that was delicious! My wife has outdone herself again, and again I ate too much.

Oh wow! This game’s going into overtime.

I also got some writing done this week, though I’m not sure how much. Maybe I should track that again. Maybe not. The writing that I did was not very focused stuff except for my Friday Fictioneers post. I’ve been searching for an idea that I want to pursue into something novel length, but I haven’t found anything that I think can hold my attention that long yet. Oh well, I’ll keep looking.

Oklahoma wins. Moving on to the SEC Championship now. I’ll probably feel guilty later about wasting all day watching football, but there’s only a couple of good football Saturdays left this year and since I’m not a big NFL fan, only a couple of good football weekends left so I guess I’ll take advantage of this one.

I have rambled on and on haven’t I? You probably are looking to get outta here and do some other things on your Saturday, but I’m not kicking you out. Stick around if you want, and we can sip coffee and watch some more football. Either way, thanks for stopping by, and if you’re heading out, have a great week!

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Thanksgiving and Looking Ahead

If we were having coffee, we would be sipping some nice Seattle’s Best coffee, listening to music from this little Dot thing we picked up cause it was on sale, and watching a little football. Wow, look at us, we’re multi-taskers!

Right now, Radioactive is playing. Who knows what comes next? Alexa has it on some playlist, so I sure don’t.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how happy I am that Dorian blew on by without too much heartache and hardship to the home-front and the surrounding areas. We would have the Saturday night college football game on, LSU at Texas, and be sipping some fresh brewed Eight O’Clock coffee. Coffee not your thing? We can probably scrounge up some tea or something to suit you, so sit back, relax, and let’s chat.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 8/18/19

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about the little alligator I saw on my run Friday. We’d sip our coffee, Seattle’s Best, fresh brewed with whatever fixings you’d prefer and listen to the tunes flow softly from a random playlist. Right now, it’s Maren Morriss, up next, who knows?

So yeah, the alligator turned out to be the best part of Friday’s run. It was hot and humid, and I was tired, but the week had not allowed for a lot of miles and I really was looking to put in a good effort. What I ended up with was seven and a quarter miles of struggle and some pics of a little gator who had found himself on the road.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019/08/10

If we were having coffee, we have just finished eating breakfast for dinner, and now we’re sitting around finishing off the coffee. It was a good dinner, blueberry pancakes with maple syrup, an onion and cheddar omelet, and of course, coffee.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019/08/03

If we were having cofffee, we wouild have just left Starbucks and piled back into the car on the way home from the mountains. So this afternoon, we’re in close quarters, but don’t worry I put my deoderant on this morning and besides, the coffee aroma is strong with us!

We were just losing the station, so I scanned the FM a bit and found a Rock station playing Smashing Pumpkins. That should hold us on music for a while.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019/07/26

If we were having coffee, I’d offer you a nice fresh brewed coffee or hot tea, and if hot’s not your thing right now cause it’s been hot even with the cool front we’re supposedly having, there’s some cold coffee as well. And if all else fails, we have water that can be served either iced or room temp. Please help yourself.

Once we’re all settled, hot or cold drinks in hand, we could chat a bit about the week gone by and enjoy a bit of music. I hope you don’t mind Jimmy Buffett, I’m in a bit of an island mood tonight, so the music fits. “License to Chill” is playing softly in the background as we start our talk.
