If We Were Having Coffee… #22

If we were having coffee I’d offer you a latte, I’m starting to get better at the milk-frothing thing!  Or we could go out for coffee, to one of those cozy coffee-shops with cushy chairs.  It’s one of those cloudy-drizzly days where it would be just lovely to slip off my shoes and curl up in an overstuffed chair.

I’m excited about my coffee-post this week, because I get to be involved in the inaugural #WeekendCoffeeShare, hosted by Part Time Monster!  What a great chance to connect with other weekend coffee folks.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you that much of the week is still a bit of a blur.    Nothing spectacular happened, aside from having to report for Jury Duty one day (which didn’t end up with me sitting on a jury). Because I got out early from that, though, I had the chance to meet up with two friends, one for a very brief check-in during her lunch-break, and the other for a trip to Powell’s and lunch.  I rarely have the chance to see my friends during the week (with my commute I only get about 2.5 hours in the evening before I have to sleep, and my energy is generally completely gone by then) so it was a fun little treat.

I’ve been doing some planning for the Un-Birthday party Blog-Party I’m hosting next week.  It’s exciting to get back into the framing story, and really cool the way that it’s taking shape.  Taliana returns (after her experience at the Masque) and I can already see the way that her next party will take form.  I’ll see how the Un-Birthday goes, but am kind of thinking I might not be able to wait until next years Masquerade to continue her story — maybe I’ll do something in April, and again in July-ish (that’s, roughly evenly spaced through the year…).  It’s fun to think about.

I also started to dig back into Disparate Threads some, and have a better idea of where I’m going next.  Starting to feel more and more confident that I’ll be able to start up again by the end of the month.  It’s exciting to be getting back on track.

I’d also tell you that Saturday was a lovely day, I went to Mother’s Bistro for breakfast (nice atmosphere, good food), and then to a “Build, Remodel, and Landscape,” show.  Since I’m not actually looking at landscaping or doing renovations of my own (my friend is in the middle of a major remodel), I just wandered around and looked at pretty tiles and daydreamed about magical yards that took care of themselves and allowed me to have pretty spaces to sit and write.  I also managed to find myself a nice pair of earrings, and two pretty vases!  However, no books — though at a furniture/hardware store we stopped at on the way home I did find some old books that looked kind of interesting….

I adored these little sculptures! From WoodLawn Nursery

How has your week been?  Anything you’re looking forward to in the coming week?

  1. I’m in the midst of deep organization, paring down, and rearrangement. Bit of chaos, but it’s a great thing to do after an inundation of presents and packing up the holiday goods — good Feng Shui 🙂


  2. Nice to see you at the coffee house! Sounds like you had an interesting week. I’m hoping to increase my writing output and start on my next children’s book. That means thinking of lovely gross stuff and silly humour, which is always fun. Good luck with Taliana and the un-birthday Blog Party and of course the continuation of Disparate Threads. Have an awesome week. 😊


  3. My week was full of the day job due to someone being sick. That meant overtime. The paycheck will be pretty and that makes up for being too tired to write. Hopefully, things will be back to normal this week and I can get the writing ideas bouncing around in my head down.


  4. Nice to hear about your writing, and thanks for joining us! I want to get back to doing some more writing myself, in the creative sense, I mean, but just haven’t had the time yet.
