Join me for a conversation and a cup of coffee
I am so glad we are meeting for coffee today! I have been looking forward to chatting with you all week. I think we will walk and talk today. We can take the trail and walk among the trees.
My dark black coffee is what I am drinking today. What would you like? I will bring out the pitcher of ice water when we come back from our walk.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I ran 13 miles on Friday! I cannot tell you how long it has been since I ran that far in one session — because I cannot remember! It felt great. I have logged a decent amount of miles this week. When I ran 5 miles on Tuesday and took my youngest with me on his bike it felt like 5 was not long enough. Two months ago 5 miles was a long run! How far I have come.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you there was lots of adulting this week and I did not enjoy it. Paperwork, cancellations, phone calls, and tire alignments! Boo.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I wrote every day as is my normal pattern. My writing practice is going nicely and there are some fiction story starts coming out of there. I have been revising some pieces here and there as I find them while trying to organize my Google drive. I am allowing my reading to influence my writing as well.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I had a great workshop day on Thursday! I had great conversations, moved some things into my new office and learned about a children’s book called Curiosity. Curiosity is the name of the Mars rover that was sent in 2012.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I tried a new recipe this week and it was a huge hit. I made homemade Chicken Pot Pie. I also made Balsamic and Brown Sugar Pork with mashed potatoes and St John Beans. It was a cooking week for me which is not the norm but the timing was different. I enjoyed cooking and doing something new. If you would like the recipes I can get them for you. remember when we used to write recipes down on index cards? Wow, that seems a long time ago when it was BI (Before Internet).
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I found my Kentucky Bourbon Barral Ale in bottles at the store this week. I put a glass in the freezer and had one Friday evening. I tried this brew when I went out to dinner with my son and it was so so good!
If we were having coffee I would tell you I loved this chat with you today! Thank you for listening to some light and a little heavier topics today. Our coffee is really a highlight of my week. What is the best thing that happened to you this week? I really want to hear! If you want to read other coffeesharers you can visit Eclectic Alli’s page.
