Weekend Coffee Share: Imbolg Edition

I’m writing at the very end of our Weekend time this week, so if we were sharing our lives over coffee, mine would be more milk than coffee in honor of Imbolc, which I’ve somewhat been celebrating all weekend long.

We’d also be watching the Super Bowl since that is also going on at the moment.

Weekend Coffee Share: 1 week, 2 dates

Hello Coffee Share peeps! This week has been busy, yet awesome, so to relax, I’m having a calming chamomile tea in my biggest Doctor Who mug. Pour yourself a cup and sit down so we can talk chisme* a bit.

Happy Witches’ New Year!!

It seems exceedingly appropriate that this holiday should land on a Wednesday, a day that for me is very focused on introspection and thinking about where I am going or where I have been. Samhain is a good day for such things, as it is the epitome of the crossroads. It is the time when the veil between the worlds is thinnest, allowing the spirits to cross over into our realm.

There is a reason why so many cultures celebrate the dead at this time of year, and in so doing, we celebrate those who have gone before us, those who make us who we have become, and those who will help shape us into what we will eventually be.

Thursday Thoughts: What if you don’t like someone?

These last few years I’ve been spending a lot of time figuring out this whole autism thing. I mean, living on the spectrum all my life you’d think I’d have it figured out by now, but it’s been only the last few years that I’ve known about it or had the time to really look into what that means.

A lot of my discoveries and worries end up on here, so feel free to peruse if you’re curious… though be warned: I’m exceedingly verbose!

One of the things that comes up regularly is this idea that being autistic makes it hard to have friends… and that’s not entirely my experience. For me, it’s easy to make friends (or I suppose I should say “acquaintances”) because I am a bit of a mimic. People are always telling me “we get along so great!” But, in reality, without even meaning to, I’ve basically just copied everything they’ve done so they identify me as “their kind of people.”

But what am I supposed to do if I don’t like this person whom I’ve now convinced that we’re identical?

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!

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.
