#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2020-Leap Day

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you what a busy work week it was, express my thankfulness that Saturday is finally here, show you my brand spanking new coffee pot, and offer you a fresh brewed cup from it! Once we had our cups filled with delicious brew, I’d wish you a very happy Leap Day on this February 29th!

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2020-02-23

If we were having coffee, we would be in the car again, looking for that next cup of Joe, whether it be at a roadside coffee shop or when we get home. Only time will tell on that front. As for now, we have water to hold us over if we get too thirsty.

#FridayFictioneers – How Much?

“Just pick one already?” Josh said. “The game’s on soon.” They walked back through the gallery yet again.

Cindy shrugged. “I like them both. What do you think?”

“I’ll go with whichever’s cheaper.”

Cindy rolled her eyes before cutting him a look. “Men,” she mumbled as they neared the painting she was leaning toward. A red barn set beneath a blue sky on a field of green. It conjured memories she thought lost to her, causing tears to well in her eyes. “This one.”

Josh flipped the paper slip up to check the price. He thought he may cry also.

WC: 100

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2020-02-16

if we were having coffee, we’d be in the car and I’d promise that we would stop at Starbucks in a bit.  Once there, we can do this thing properly, with drinks, hot or cold, and all the glorious smells of brewing coffee that come with it.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2020-01-31

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.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2020-01-10

If we were having coffee, it would be iced coffee I got from the grocery this week as it’s already late and a whole pot of coffee would be overkill at this point. Yes it’s Friday night, and yes, I’ll be in the bed shortly. So I won’t be ODing on coffee tonight. Maybe tomorrow.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Merry Christmas!

If we were having coffee, I’d wish you a Merry Christmas or even a very generic Happy Holidays if you prefer while sipping some hot apple cider instead of my usual brew. I can brew up some coffee or tea for you if you’d like, or I could nuke some cider for you like I have for myself. It’s a good drink when the weather’s cold like it is now. I’m no fan of the cold, but I do like a good sipping hot beverage!

It’s been a mixed week for me. Monday kicked off and kicked my butt. I got some sort of sinus bug or some such that had me feeling puny until Wednesday, so there was a sipping of a different kind the first part of the week. Dayquil sipping is what I’m talking about. Not exactly a great start to the week.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 2019/12/14

If we were having coffee, I’d be drinking some hot apple cider instead. It’s good stuff. Can I get you some or would you prefer to stick with the traditional coffee? Both are great options, so definitely suit yourself.

We’ve got the UFC fights on, just the prelims though, cause who can afford to pay for the mains. Not me, and I’m not really interested in going out all night to watch the fights in a crowded bar. Every now and then that’s fine, but it’s not something I look to do very often. And since ESPN has the UFC now, I seem to hear so much less about what’s going on in the fight world. It, for me at least, has gotten lost among all the other sports ESPN has. The good news is that I don’t really miss it anyway. A few preliminary fights every month or so and I’m good.

#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.
