I see you approaching with your eyes scanning the room. I am familiar with the feeling I see shifting in your eyes between blinks. It is that silent prayer for an empty seat or a familiar face. It is a full house in the café today and it seems the majority of folks are engaged in animated conversations with someone sitting or standing close to them. I shift the book I’m reading, which is Knife of Dreams by the way, and I use my foot to push the empty chair out a bit from my table and when you look over I nod to the chair before returning to the half read page in front of me. I note when you set your coffee on the table that a full-bodied scent is evident; you are a serious coffee drinker. “Thanks,” you say and before I know it we are engaged in friendly conversation.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am thankful for words: writing them, reading them, listening and speaking them. I would ask you how your week was and sit back to listen to the flow of words that details your week’s adventures.
If we were having coffee today I would share my A to Z theme with you. The theme reveal opened on March 18 but I thought sharing it again now would be okay because it really does fit into today’s post so nicely. So with that said, this year I am doing 6 word posts and my theme is (drum roll please) COFFEE!!
If we were having coffee today I would tell you that my youngest son and I made a birthday cake this week. It was chocolate cake with white chocolate ganache filling and vanilla icing. Unfortunately, I am not use to making the cake layers so thin and I over baked it so it was a bit dry. Thank goodness for vanilla ice cream.
We have finally had some spring temperature and the snow is starting to melt. It is a mucky mess but we have managed to fit a few walks with the dog and it’s been real nice. The kids are eager to get their bikes out and of course they want to go camping… Spring break starts this Monday so we will see what adventures this next week brings. Hope you all have a good week. See you for coffee next Saturday.
