#WeekendCoffeeShare was created by Part Time Monster. I’m so happy to participate again! I made an extra pot and I hope you’ll join me.
If we were having coffee, the first thing I’d so is introduce you to my Mother-in-Law, Linda, because we’re visiting her in Augusta and I’m sure she’d want to join in! (It’s also her coffee.)
It’s always such a nice getaway – not only do I enjoy her company and spending time with family, but there’s the accompanying “perk” that I’m not at home, facing a weekend “Gotta Get this Crap Done” list of house/car/clothing cleaning, repairs, bills, budgeting and other nasty-but-necessary aspects of growed-up life.
Being here, far from the visual reminders of domestic responsibility, means that I can read, blog, read other blogs, work on my website, take on-line classes, create a photo book for our recent Burns Supper celebration and otherwise indulge myself in the “me” time I can rarely schedule when I’m at home.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask what you’ve been watching on TV (should you watch TV) because I’ve been recently obsessed with Broadchurch.
I’m a huge Dr. Who Fan and love David Tennant’s Doctor, but this Tennant is a dark and flawed character, driven by pain and failure – very different from his charming and powerful Time Lord. A mesmerizing plot and really detailed and wonderful character development, added to the gorgeous scenery of coastal Dorset, kept me riveted through Seasons 1 and 2.
“And because you watched Broadchurch,” Netflix admonished me (after the final credits rolled on the last chair-gripping episode) “Look at all these British TV shows I’m going to suck you into!”
So far, they’ve succeeded with The Bletchley Circle, which I got half-way through last night. However, this time, I swear I’m going to ration myself and not serial watch it all this weekend. Does that happen to you?
If we were having coffee, I’d ask you to grab your cup and come to the kitchen. Linda just made pancakes! Would you like some with blueberries or without? There’s butter and maple syrup – help yourself.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that we had an amazing time at our Burns Supper celebration last week and I’m looking forward both to blogging about it and to making another photo book for all the guests, like I did a few years ago. We’ve got so many awesome pictures and happy memories, it’s nice to gather them all in one place.
Which reminds me, while I’m not on an agenda, I guess I kinda am! I need to get working on my book, and I’m feeling fairly inspired, so I’ll thank you for stopping by, remind you to schedule us again for next week and wish you a wonderful weekend full of all the things that make you happy!
I’d also like to thank Nerd in the Brain – I’ve enjoyed her “If We Were Having Coffee” posts so much, it inspired me to brew up a pot and join you all here at #WeekendCoffeeShare.
