I am at a loss for words regarding the smell of my coffee this morning. It is a soft comforting smell that is kind of sweet. It actually masks the smell of the coffee! The taste is soft as well and a bit creamy. For me that rich bitter taste of coffee that I enjoy is also blocked. It is a warm subtle coffee. I love vanilla. I love coffee. However, vanilla swirl flavoured coffee isn’t my top choice. If we were having coffee I would be curious about what is in your coffee mug.
If we were having coffee I would happily announce that if writing goes as scheduled I will end the year with 46 photo prompts. Not bad. I feel like it has been an okay year for writing. There has been ups and downs but overall I am happy. How about you, how do you feel your writing has gone this year?
If we were having coffee I would share a picture of my latest puzzle.
If we were having coffee I would also share my cookie experience with you. I tried making a cookie that I have never made before: gluten-free gingerbread. I was having a great time cutting out my fall shapes and I was feeling pumped about how I imagine the end product would look. However, I what came out of the oven was nowhere near what went in! I missed the step that says leave in the freezer for X amount of time before placing in the oven. They may not have looked pretty but they still tasted really good!
If we were having coffee I would share with you that I flew through reading Look Alive Twenty-five and Twisted Twenty-Six. I am not about a ¼ of the way into The Scam. I had to take a couple days after finished Twisted Twenty-Six and starting The Scam so that I could separate my reading thoughts from Stephanie Plum who is the main character in the Look Alive Twenty-five and Twisted Twenty-Six and enjoy Kate O’Hare in The Scam. The reading time was nice, but I don’t think I will be able to sustain that pace.
If we were having coffee I would send a big thanks out to Kathleen at Kathleen Howell Blog because last week she shared with me that someone she knows is planning to do a Halloween Hunt this year. I have been wondering what Halloween in a COVID world was going to look like and not really sure what my thoughts were on it but having no idea about an alternative. Anyway, I pitched the idea to my boys (7 & 10) and gave them the choice between a hunt and trick-or-treating and they really want to do a hunt. So, this year one room in my house will be turned into a scary place and candy will be hidden. A family Halloween movie will follow. Thanks again Kathleen, we are so excited about this event!
If we were having coffee I would also send a thank you to Gary from Gary A Wilson’s Stories in a Dime of Time. Last week I was desperately trying to convey the idea of passing the coffee pot as passing a talking stick. However, the words “talking stick” were alluding me like a fart in the wind. So, thank you Gary for helping me with those words. And now it is time for me to pass you the coffee pot.
