#WeekendCoffeeShare – Friday Night, Staying In

cappuccino on tableIf we were having coffee, I’d offer you up a nice cup of Seattle’s Best that I just brewed up.  Since I’m up getting you a cup, I think I’ll get a refill for myself.  This is good stuff!  Coffee not your thing?  I’ve got some green tea, oh and some apple cider that is really good heated.  It’ll just take a minute or two.

So, we stayed in tonight.  The original plan was to ride over to dinner and a movie after work.  We thought we’d see “The 15:17 to Paris,” but that didn’t happen.  I discovered on the way home that our route to the theater had been blocked by a head on collision.  It would be four to five hours before the road opened said the nice State Trooper that detoured my drive home.

#FridayFictioneers – Location, Location, Location


With effort, Carlos relaxed a white knuckled grip on the railing and debarked on shaky legs.  He resisted the urge to kiss the solid deck-boards beneath his feet.

One look around, and his nausea doubled.  He had bought this.  This?  “Location, location, location,” he heard his agent chirp in the back of his mind.

Easing down to sit on the dock, he breathed.  Breathed in clean ocean air.  Waves sang in the distance among a chorus of birds that soared high overhead.  Mountains framed the distant horizon.

Things began to take shape in his mind.  Location, location, location.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Venting

cappuccino on table

If we were having coffee, I’d offer you a nice cup, freshly brewed of course, or maybe a tea bag to dob in a cup of steaming hot water (if that’s what your into). I’ve had several cups of tea already today, so I think I’ll switch it up and go with the coffee for now.

Another week down and here we are in February. Though it’s too early in the year to say it, it’s true. This year is flying by. Why just yesterday, it was New Year’s. The plans for 2018 are piling up fast with travel and races and all manner of things, and I know already that we’ll be standing on 2019’s doorstep before we even realize it. Such is life.

Search the Sky


And when I cry,
And search the sky,
And want to die,
I don't know why.

Can't you help,
Oh, don't you know?
I don't belong,
There above or here below.

Stuck right here,
The middle it seems.
Where they go,
To die, the dreams.

So, lonely is as lonely does,
Living life, just because.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Oil Change

If we were having coffee, I’d say “fancy seeing you here!” You see, I’m not in my normal spot, tucked in behind a desk in the spare bedroom. Nope, today I’m hanging out at the Jeep dealer, waiting for the oil to get changed. Oh, the joys of adulting.

#FridayFictioneers – Got Gas?


“…Should have stopped in the city,” Mandy huffed. “Didn’t I tell you.”

“No worries,” Stanley replied. “There’s a place… I think.”

“That place?”

“Besides, this thing is great on gas. We’ve got miles in the tank.” Tapping the gas gauge, it fell past E.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – A Bit Late

cappuccino on tableIf we were having coffee, I would welcome you to this late #WeekendCoffeeShare post and tell you how grateful I am that Alli leaves the link open past what we would normally consider the weekend.  (Whew, I got 56 minutes to post!  Aghh!)

I hope that you are all doing well out there.  Yes, I’m a bit late this week, but that’s okay.  Life is busy, and would we really want it any other way.  It seems sometimes, listening to others (and talking ourselves) that that is exactly what we want, but I doubt it really is.  Sure, some time to relax and maybe write would often be nice, but if I wasn’t so busy, then wouldn’t that mean that my life was somehow lacking?
