Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)! All are welcome!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
Thanks to Eclectic Alli, the host for Weekend Coffee Share! Her post and Linkz link-up for this weekend are here.
Welcome! Today’s fare is simple: Oolong tea, Toddy coffee, filtered water, filberts and a couple different kinds of cheese and g-f crackers. Late getting up and going, this weekend. Comes from waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep, again. The Scampers were good puppies to nap, again, when I decided that I needed some extra sleep, today.
Awake too early
waiting for the hours to pass
eight o’clock sunrise
made long ago…never kept

If we were having coffee together, this afternoon, I would mention that the work table from my late mother’s sewing/computer room has finally been moved from beside the front door to beneath the north-facing window in my room to hold my tiny desktop computer and monitor. My longer desk is now in my husband’s room, and we moved his large L-shaped desk into the carpentry-free room of the backyard workshop, where it is sorely needed. We’re still adding shelves and cupboards to accommodate organizing everything by type and use.
I am happy to tell you that my dental check-up, yesterday, went well. My husband, however, is scheduled for two sessions of fillings, this coming week. I thought to take the charcoal face mask with me to minimize exposure to the fragrances that accumulate in the dental office’s reception area. I did not feel like I would pass out, unlike at last winter’s appointment.
The dental appointments and stops at the butcher shop and two grocery stores were distracting enough that I forgot Friday, and so the weekend showed up out of nowhere. In amongst the distractions, I did take some photos, this week.
We have warm weather for a while, now, after the bitter cold and wind of Thursday’s outing. We still go to the small-town dental office in the town where one of my brothers still lives.
Somewhere, this week, I came across a question, the wording of which I do not recall, but it centered on who, in all truth, you believe you are. it intrigues me. I intend to try writing to that, this weekend. Something about recognizing what I am running from and to, and why.
Thank you for stopping by to visit.
Best wishes for your weekend and the week to be.
One more poem from this week, which wrote on Monday. I was thinking about my parents when I wrote it. Particularly, my mother. She was 85 when she finished writing and published her last book. When I was unable to find, after her death, her notes or unfinished manuscript for the fourth book she planned to write, women in the military service during WW II.
promise of eternity
yesterday has passed
we exist in our todays
and that’s time enough for love
