If We Were Having Coffee on the 5th of June, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and take a seat. It feels great out here right now, even in shorts, but will get warm later. We are expecting a heat wave that will last until, I think, Thursday. But it is a beautiful morning, so let me get you a large mug of super dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. Oh, where are we? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being New Hampshire.

I drove home from Cape Cod on Sunday morning. It was a rainy and cold weekend! It had been very hot, so the house stayed warm throughout, but still – the temps were flat-lined at 46 F/8 C and it rained almost continuously late Friday night through Monday morning. Yuck. But then Monday turned out pretty good. i took the day off of work on Tuesday, and it was a great day! I feel I got more done Tuesday that the entire weekend, including Monday.

Oh, we received our first batch of farm fresh produce from a local CSA (Customer Supported Agriculture) on Tuesday! It is all greens this early, but still great!

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were super busy at work after my min-vacation!

This week I walked and played with dogs, cat play (I have a kitten, you know), ran (Tuesday and Thursday) exercised, walked on my own, talked to neighbors, played music (played instruments, not listened to music…), read, etc. I also did a lot of editing. A few years ago I wrote a serialized book using prompts from Sue Vincent. I downloaded all of the chapters last Friday and have been trying to shape it into a real book. We’ll see.

Today I am going to run before it gets too hot and start my mowing and yard work. I will, of course walk and play with the dogs, play with the kitten, etc.

Oh real quick, a few weeks ago I took some photos for Coffee Shares from Cape Cod. Here is a preview of the two I will most likely use.

I know, it has a chip… I grabbed my camera and favorite of the five Beatles mugs and went for a walk. Only later did I see the chip. Oh well.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a great weekend. If you have a coffee share post, I will try to visit, but no promises.

Natalie the Explorer is now the host of the weekend coffee share and she is doing a wonderful job. Stop in at this week’s main share page or go to the InLinkzlinkup to see all of the other shares!

Oh – a few weeks ago I decided to use my page’s “badge” for the InLinkz linkup page so it is the same every week despite the kaleidoscope of photos I use for the share itself. Hope this makes it easier for you :)

    I Love the Beatles mugs, chip in it gives it character!! Furry friends are the best way to spend the weekend, and I know you get outside tons too!! I hope it doesn’t get to hot there as we are supposed to get a bit cooler and maybe some rain in the forecast! I posted a very late coffee share, one of these weekends I’ll try and get it together earlier! Have a great week ahead! 😀 ~ D

      It was a good weekend of furry friends and time spent outside. It was hot (for here) in the 90s and humid. Hope you had a great weekend. I’ll stop by in a few to see your coffee share.

      I think you were around when I used to post the pyramid of Beatles mugs, but never on the beach… until now. Hope you have a wonderful week :)

      I had a great weekend, despite temps in the 90s (yeah, I know, but it is hot for here ;) ). I hope you had a great weekend as well and that you have a wonderful week!

    Hi Trent,
    Great to catch up again. Not sure whether you’ve missed me or not or wondered whether I’d gone to bloggers’ heaven. I had trouble adjusting to the new time for the coffee share and got out of routine with blogging and have been flat out ding my WWI research and writing and am making good headway. A very dear friend also ended up in intensive care and passed away from cancer and her funeral was Monday. I spoke which was much more intense and time consuming than expected as I need to cut it back to three minutes, which left me with no slack at all. It’s Winter here and just a bit chilly and around 16 degrees Celsius during the day.
    Hope youre doing well.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena

      Hi Rowena, it’s great to “see” you! I am very sorry about your friend. Glad that your research is going well, even if time consuming. The starting time for the Coffee Share has changed, but I still post at the same time, I’m just one of the last instead of one of the first! There are a few old faces, but mostly new.
      As long as it is sunny, 17 sounds fine to me…. We went from sing digit C to 30+ overnight, and then yo-yo between single digits and the 30s (if it never got about 25 C, I would be happy…)
      Hope your weekend is going well and that you have a wonderful week!

    I like how the first mug almost fits into the background you have it set in. I haven’t been out but was told it was hot and Monday I have to go out to get to the doctor’s office. Hopefully, I will get this walking boot off. My leg is so uncomfortable with it on and so I am on pins and needles while I wait.

    I have a friend in TN that gets produce from CSA. I should check and see what’s available around here. We planted the tomatoes yesterday, but that’s all we planted, so I have to go to a farmers’ market or depend on the grocery store for produce.

      We have some tomatoes ready to plant, but doing the CSA for produce is great. You should look around and see if there are any. My town had one of the first two CSAs in the country, so they are very popular here.

      Great, I’ll take a look. I haven’t gotten much farther than when I last talked to you – I like a lot of it, he had a sly sense of humor, but it is just slow reading…

        Slodging along over here ;)
        And I made the closing post date to be Sunday the 13th because his bday was mid week
        And who knows – if this goes well we could do another dickens challenge next year between Feb and June –
        Either way – already I feel like this was a success because of the connecting with you, Derrick and a few others – and we generated some chatter about this lesser known work of a master writer

          I will put out a reminder post today and then do my “real post” on Tuesday. I hope I am better prepared if we do another one! I do want to read a few of the classics that I missed.

              I’ll admit that though I always remembered it was coming up, I was in denial about how soon! If we do it again I hope I’ll be a bit more organized – I think for me it was just the difficulty in getting into the book. Oh well…

                  I read a few books after I started this one and wrote a book! Oh well. And, as you said, I would mean to get back, but would start something else and accidentally move on.

                      OK, I think I will do a “starting post” on Wednesday (the 9th) and then wait until the weekend for the real post. Maybe 5 take aways, but I am not sure. I am thinking what I liked and what I didn’t and why I didn’t finish ;)

    Hi T – nice photo shoot with the offer mugs – clever idea and I like the beach one even with the small chip – just love the mood with the beach grass and shadow

    and cold tea for me today – too hot and too late for java – so tea it is!

    and glad you had a nice week and the box of greens sounds delicious

      Hey,Y, how are you? A cold tea coming up. It was hot here today as well, and will get hotter. The two Beatles mug shots were at the landing less than a quarter of a mile from my house. I put my kayak in the water from the little beach area.
      Thanks for stopping by – hope your weekend is going well!

          Our old place on Cape Cod was across the street from a landing, so when we were house hunting again, having a place to put the kayak in near by, so it never had to go on the car, was the top requirement for me…

    Your weekend sounds somewhat similar to mine. Mine is filled with dogs again (and a cat this time,) and I have some plans to meet with friends on Sunday. I might do a coffee weekend share post myself this time. We’ll see. I really like the looks of your mug in the first photo.
