I can almost smell that rich pumpkin scent mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. It is just slowly starting to sift into the air to travel playfully on the gusts of fall wind. If I close my eyes I can imagine those scents rising up from the coffee mug in my hand. However, it is really just a regular coffee I am drinking with a hint of cinnamon in it, but the power of imagination coupled with my love of fall and pumpkin spice lattes helps fulfill the fantasy.
So, if we were having coffee in September I would tell you that we did a long hall road trip before school started that included a swim in the hot springs, a number of hikes, a trip to the Klondike boat, old fashioned family pictures, visiting a dredge, and panning for gold plus a few other adventures.
It was a great trip!
If we were having our first fall coffee I would tell you that I finished reading book 8 in The Wheel of Time Series as well as three Janet Evanovich novels: The Lizzy & Diesel Series. I love the humour in Evanovich’s writing. After the Lizzy & Diesel series I returned to The Wheel of Time Series, Winter’s Heart, which I am still reading. What are you reading?
If we were sipping hot coffee together in cool weather I would tell you that I have a guest post scheduled for September 14, 2018. It is a funny little piece about a mom who thought she wanted a baby boy. I haven’t had a guest post in a little while so I am real excited to be able to share this piece of writing. I hope you will get a chance to stop by and check it out.
My final bit of coffee news is in relation to my announcement during my last coffee share post about Chicken Soup for the Soul and my story being accepted by them. “Pawing the Tree” will be published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Wonder of Christmas. It will go on sale on October 16, 2018.
If we were having coffee I would offer you a refill and ask about your coffee share news…
