#Weekend Coffee Share
If you would like to sit down across the virtual table and share a cup of coffee and some pleasant conversation, then by all means, come on out and join us. Eclectic Alli is hosting a coffee share. This week’s share is here. and the link up is here. Come on and join in!
I am trying out this blog as a means to practice better blog writing and meet fellow writer-bloggers. My first challenge is to write these posts directly into the computer rather than scribble and jot on pages of legal-sized paper before being satisfied enough to type the story. By that time, as I have experienced when attempting to submit to Weekend Coffee Share, the weekend was over. My process is very time consuming and time is a commodity. I can’t change my writing process completely right now, but I could dabble with it on the timely pieces.
So here I am. February 17th Saturday morning sipping my first cup of coffee for the day. It was a crazy week at school trying to tie up lesson plans, testing, and meetings before the children and staff leave for winter break. We have the whole week off next week. Throughout January and these past few February weeks, I had been wiping down tables, pencils, and crayons after each session with my students, warding off any flu or common cold germs. It’s been a battle.
Winter break is here as is the raw winter weather on Long Island, NY. Lucky me, I am traveling to California today where I can shed my coat and wear sandals and crop pants. I had scheduled a mini book tour in Long Beach. I have very fun cousins who invited me to stay and are hosting me and my book, Hug Everyone You Know, at their book club. Gatsby Books in Long Beach invited me to a book signing event on Sunday. I will also be able to visit with aunts and uncles I have not seen in a while. I hope to collect some famly stories to add to my Stories Served blog.
My hubby is staying home to take care of the cat, keep up with his work projects (no winter break for him) and nurse his very sore back. I need to stock the fridge a bit for him before I leave this afternoon. Although he is a very good cook, he tends to baptize the kitchen, counters, walls, floors, and ceilings while doing so. He has a lot of good husband traits but cleaning is not one of them. I fear I may be cleaning for two days when I return.
It is almost eight am. My coffee needs to be refreshed and I need to edit and should get a picture placed in this posting–another time consuming venture. Have a warm weekend, everyone. Make it great.
