#WeekendCoffeeShare – Writing & Reading


If we were having coffee, we would be watching NFL playoff football and drinking some nice Seattle’s Best Breakfast Blend.  Never mind that it’s nowhere near breakfast.  I’ve also got a few different teas and some apple cider if that’s more your thing.  What can I get you?

I’d tell you that it was a pretty good week as far as writing goes, with words being written almost every day.  Friday is typically an off day for writing, as it tends to be busy at work and lots of times a night out for dinner or a movie.  I’ve been writing during lunch at work, then coming home and trying to get a little more done at some point in the evening.  With all the rain we’ve been having, there’s little else to do anyway.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Happy New Year


If we were having coffee, I would be having hot apple cider.  It’s good stuff. If you would like, I can get you a cup. Of course, I can put some coffee on, or heat some water for tea.  Whatever you like. Make yourself comfortable, relax, and watch a little football.

This week has been great!  I’ve been off, so that’s always good, and we’ve got Christmas behind us.  Christmas is great and all, but man, it can be work. So now, we can look forward to the new year.  2019!

What are you looking forward to in 2019?  Are you setting resolutions, and if so, how long until you break them? Continue reading “#WeekendCoffeeShare – Happy New Year”

#WeekendCoffeeShare – We Wish You…


If we were having coffee, we would be listening to The Wallflowers while enjoying our beverages of hot and cold.  I’d be having cold coffee, hold the ice, with a nice spoonful of honey to add a bit of sweet.  The honey is good local stuff I get from a guy at work.  It’s sat around long enough that it’s gone solid, so we can scoop out what we want without making a mess.  You should try it!  You could even put some in hot coffee or tea if you’d prefer that.  The honey will most definitely dissolve better in the hot stuff.

It’s that time of year that I would wish you a Merry Christmas.  But I could also wish you a Happy Hanukkah, a Merry something else, or just a Happy Holidays if you’d prefer.  We do Christmas here, so that’s where my mind goes. Continue reading “#WeekendCoffeeShare – We Wish You…”

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Running Behind, but Running All The Same

If we were having coffee, I’d say that I didn’t really know what to say.  Then I’d offer you a nice cup ‘o joe and we could laze about, sipping coffee and talking about things.  Of course, if coffee is not your thing, I could offer you some tea, milk, or water.  We drink mostly water here, but there are occasions where other things are drank.  Other things like coffee, which is consumed daily, at least when I’m around.

I’ve spent the last two weeks in NC.  The first was vacation, the second was work.  The two trips were about as opposite as they could have been.  The first was in the mountains, while the second was on the coast, and of’course there is the difference of fun versus work.  Not that all the work was bad, it just wasn’t vacation.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Running Behind

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!
