Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 6

I hover over the Keurig maker this morning watching the liquid stream out and make small sputtering and splashing sounds. The stream looks almost frothy as it flows into my waiting cup. The smell of sweet coconut drifts off the liquid in my cup. The liquid itself is a reddish hue around the edges of the cup. I taste the liquid and I am surprised by that first sip because it is a burnt woody taste that dominates the flavour. It is not oily. It is not creamy and it is not sweet or tropical. That said, I will still drink my cup of hot java down because it is hot and welcoming this morning. Today’s coffee is coconut cream pie.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I am reading book 3 in The Coven Series called “Song of A Risen God.” I also read “Judy Moody was in a mood” by Megan McDonald. My younger son usually reads Megan McDonald’s books on Stink. Stink is Judy’s sister. Anyway, he received “Judy Moody was in a mood” as a prize for a reading sheet he completed and I was curious about the story.

My review of “Reckoning of Fallen Gods” can be found: here.

If we were having coffee, I would ask you if you know and excellent Book Review blogs? I am looking to follow some new blogs and I think some Book Review blogs would be interesting and helpful. I would love a few Fantasy Book Review blogs but I will be happy with any Book Review Blogs that you might be able to recommend.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that it has been a typical week of work, eat, sleep, parent and try to find a few minutes to read and or write. So, I don’t have much else to share. If we were having coffee, it would be time for me to pass you the coffee pot.

  1. Hi Shari,

    I think I’m back. It was a weird week with family business, some very early early morning work stuff and one expedition to the eye doctor to fuss with an oddity about my new glasses that simply were not working for me. She did a great job of making sense of it and is having new lens cut to solve the problem.

    My work issue was a meeting that I led for my peers in Spain at a standing noon-time meeting. but do the temporal math and you’ll note that Spain uses CET and their noon is our (I think you and I share the same time zone (Pacific Time) equivalent is 3am. So I had to drag myself out of bed at 2:15am to be awake enough to lead a teaching session on our company’s software security patching. The rest of my day left my inner clock both tired, confused and desperately in need of prolonged nap therapy.

    This would not have been such a big deal when I was younger. . .

    Anyway, I’ve prioritized some progress on “Ember Stone” for later this morning and look forward to seeing where you take your reader next.

    I don’t think that either I or my kids read any Megan McDonald.
    My oldest son was fully taken by the Red Wall series by Brian Jacques.
    My daughter was devoted to the Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer.
    My youngest son still reads a lot of almost anything from a surprising spectrum of topics.
    My wife might not be recognizable without her kindle in hand, so we each have a strong bookworm as part of our genetic makeup.

    Back to you soon.

    1. 3 in the morning is a very unfortunate time for a meeting! I have a very firm bedtime of 10 pm and I enjoy not getting out of bed until some time after 5am. There was a time when I found working night shifts and seeing the darkness shift to light very enjoyable but that time has long passed.

      I had to look up Red Wall series by Brian Jacques and Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer. I think I will run those series past my boys. I am hopeful that my youngest son will develop a taste for fantasy. My oldest still hasn’t been drawn in by it, he prefers mystery and is steadily working his way through The Hardy Boys.

      Thanks for stopping in Gary. Hope you have a great rest of your weekend.
