#WeekendCoffeeShare – 02.13.16


If we were having coffee, I would offer you some biscuits and jam with your morning espresso. We would sit in the sun room and enjoy the warmth in Winter.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you of the excitement that is bubbling up inside of me. Writing gives me the greatest pleasure and I have so many projects to look forward to this year. I would laugh, maniacally and rub my hands. And whisper that tomorrow will be a great triumph for me as a writer. It’s Bloody Valentine’s day, I would say in my best British accent. And then I would tell you about my upcoming Film-Noir WhoDunIt for March, the A-to-Z challenge and Poem-A-Day in April, and the anticipation of stories again in May. I would whisper my plans for a long hot summer of writing tales about Serial Killers, Angels, Demons and Vampires. Not to mention the chill of Autumn with poetry, Ghostly and Witchly tales. And end my enthusiasm by telling you of my wintery tales in outer space and of Christmas.

“It’s all planned out, you see,” I would tell you.

If we were having coffee, I would complain a bit about my feet, always about my feet. How they freeze and sometimes burn for no apparent reasons except that the nerves are all screwed-up due to neuropathy. I would beg you not to laugh as I told you of my escapades with trying to walk straight lines and maneuver through the house with feet that do not feel where they are going.

And finally, if we were having coffee, we would sit and sigh, enjoy the warmth on our faces, and reminisce about the old days when life was full of fun, when adulthood didn’t weigh heavily upon our minds and bodies, and when we could laugh at silly jokes without a care in the world.

If we were having coffee, what would YOU tell me? Let me know in comments!


This delightful morning coffee share is brought to you by Part-Time Monster and friends.

  1. Lori, sorry to hear about your feet. Perhaps, you could post them out to me in Australia and the Summer heat might help.
    I will be doing the A2Z Challenge and hope to have all my posts written ahead so I can concentrate on reading and responding. I also have a theme but like many with a theme, have a few problematic letters.
    Thanks for the coffee and hope you have a great week!
    xx Rowena

    • Thank you, Rowena! If I could, I would definitely send my feet to Australia! The warmth would be lovely!
      That is great that you are doing the A2Z challenge! It should be great fun. I am doing it on two blogs and will be planning out the posts for one of them. The other will be a pantser writing experience. And yes, there are quite a few problematic letters for me too. Enjoy your week! Lovely to have met you 🙂

    • You are most welcome for the coffee, Claudia and thank you 🙂 It is an ambitious year, one I’ve never attempted, but I am looking forward to it. If you ever do decide to do the A2Z, you can always schedule your posts ahead of time. Many do 🙂 Blessings to you too dear 🙂

  2. Thanks for the treats. You have great year plan and I wish you well in accomplishing it. My feet don’t always go where I want them to go. It often looks like I am drunk. My walker helps and the new chair should help, also. Have a good day.

    • You are most welcome for the treats, Betty Louise 🙂 and thank you for stopping by. Sorry to hear about your feet as well and best wishes with the new chair! Enjoy your weekend 🙂

  3. Sounds like you have lots of fun and interesting writing ahead of you! I’ve got some things I need to get down on paper myself, and I’m hoping to use this week to start doing that….And to work on my A to Z Challenge things!

What's on your mind? Let me know!
