Weekend Coffee Share: Is it really over?

This weekend, if we were sharing coffee, it would be the blonde roast that was a gift from my student, and we’d be curled up in our PJ’s. A kind of slumber party version of the Weekend Coffee Share. And a short post at that.

Not much has happened over the last couple of weeks.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: Summer’s flying!

Welcome! Pull up a chair, grab you a cup of whatever caffeinated beverage you’re craving, and let’s chat a while.

This week, my “coffee” is actually a tea. During the earlier camp Nano, I joined a tea swap, and now I have a ton of interesting flavors to try out. I’ll be taking some of them with me when I go on “vacation” next week.

It’s really more of a “stay-cation,” but it will get me out of the house nonetheless.

But that’s not what we’re here to discuss. We’re here to review this past week and then talk about things to come!

Boy Update: Communication is _______.

There are oh so many ways to fill in that blank! Communication is key. Communication is imperative. Communication is a lost art form. Communication is complicated. Communication is broken…

When you’re not exactly sure how to communicate between your own mind and heart, and then you have to figure out how to talk to people, it’s probably a little bit of all of those.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: A word of encouragement, please.

Well hello, coffee share peeps! This weekend if we were having coffee, we’d be curled up in my room drinking some soothing tea instead of coffee. I’m pretty sure I can’t handle anything as agitating as coffee right now.

This week has been relatively slow, especially compared to when I last wrote on the coffee share, nearly 2 weeks ago.

And today, I’m mostly writing because I need a couple words of encouragement: The latest date with the Band Director is tomorrow…

Weekly Coffee Share: Hello July!

For those of you who’ve been around here for a while, you know there have been several versions of the coffee share, and then it died out…

But I’m very glad to say that it is back! Apparently, ElectricAlli has decided to take over the role of hosting the coffee share, and this will be my first post reconnecting with the link up.

Grab a cup and cozy up! Here’s the latest in my life: the last week in teaching summer school, a mini Boy Update, news about Camp NaNoWriMo, and my successes/struggles with the Bullet Journal.

Merry Midsummer! Embrace the bounty!

Merry meet to all those of the pagan or witchy persuasion (and any who are not offended by such a greeting)! Today is Midsummer, and it is a blessed day indeed. Even though here in Houston we aren’t exactly seeing the sun, I can feel it’s warmth in my heart and am grateful for the bounty that has been brought into my life in this past year.

It may have taken me a while to recognize (or even remember), but it has been exactly a year to the day that I sought answers in what for me was a somewhat unlikely place, and I think perhaps my prayers were answered.

That Friday Feeling: Focus on the Positive.

For those of you who are part of the writing community on Twitter, first of all, Thank You!! Thank you for all your support that you give one another and being such an amazing example of what we can accomplish when we try to support one another instead of trying to tear each other down!

This past weekend’s #JustAddTea chat was all about celebrations, and while it did include how to use celebration in our works in progress (or WIPs, for those of you in the know), it began by emphasizing our own successes, both big and small.

This is a thing we should all do a little more.
