#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.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 02-02-2019

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that it’s been a long week and that I’m so happy that it’s the weekend.  We would be here, listening to music, (a playlist on my phone that’s playing Round Here by the Counting Crows right now) and sipping fresh brewed coffee.  It feels good to relax for a day or two.  I’m thinking we have this whole work week thing backwards, working five days and off two.  Who came up with that?  Oh well, I’ll sip my coffee and be thankful for the downtime that never seems to last long enough.

Wow, I feel like I’m rambling already.  Most rude of me.  Perhaps it’s because my writing this week has been nonexistent.  The long days at work, and the cold weather (not Chicago cold, thank goodness!) had me feeling tired and unmotivated.  I hate that feeling.  There were a couple of nights I fell into bed around 8 o’clock to read a bit, only to fall asleep shortly after going down.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 01-26-19

cropped-cappuccino-on-tableHello and welcome to my virtual coffee room!  Please help yourself to a coffee, freshly brewed, or a bit of tea if that’s your thing.  There’s a few other things available as well, do feel free to grab whatever floats your boat, blow up your skirt, etc, etc…

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I am so close to finishing the very rough first draft of a vampire story that I think will be novella length if I can keep focus long enough to get it there.  Of course it may be longer, I won’t know that until I start filling in all the details that I left out, skimmed over, and blatantly ignored while trying to get through a skeleton of a completed story longer than a thousand words or so.  The longer things never seem to work for me, though I try, OMG, how I try.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – 01-20-19

If we were having coffee, I would apologize for not having much to offer.  There is some hotel coffee down in the lobby (that always seems to do in a pinch) and a Starbucks just down the street, so perhaps we will get out in a bit.  You know, if the hotel coffee is unbearable.  I do have some good cold water in the room fridge if that would do you better.

We would be watching the first of today’s football games, the NFC Championship, here in the room while sipping our drinks.

Looking back on the week, I’d say it was a pretty good one.  I did some writing on a thing I hope to make into a book one day, some editing on a thing that should be close to submitting, and posted a 100 work story for #FridayFictioneers on the blog here.  All things considered, a good week.

#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

cropped-cappuccino-on-table

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”
