“Don’t’ buy that cup, its haunted!” My friend warned. With an eye roll I stroll to the counter with the cup.
Two days later I sit down and try to settle myself in my favourite chair. I cuddle the warm blanket over my legs and a heavy sigh and eye roll follows because I am finally comfortable and my coffee is in the other room on the counter! I am exhausted from a sleepless night. The strange noises from the kitchen and the light flicking on at random intervals was not an environment conducive to sleep. I want my coffee but I don’t want to get up to get it.
I lean my head back and close my eyes. “Okay self you have the energy.” I push my eyes open, snap the blanket off my lap and freeze. My coffee mug is being gently placed on the end table beside me by someone or something that I can’t see…
If we were having coffee I would remind you that October’s theme is ghost stories (haunted, Halloween…). I love October for all the fun the month encompasses: pumpkin, fall colours, Thanksgiving, birthdays, anniversaries, Halloween, ghosts, ghouls, witches, vampires and various other creepy things.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the weather has been very bizzare. We went from snow and freezing to cool and nice. I am not complaining just noting that the shift has been welcome and strange.
If we were having coffee I would share all the buttons from 2019’s monthly themes as a sort of over view of what things have looked like here at Writing is Communication.
If we were having coffee I would comment that for a short work week it sure felt long! How was your week?
