Coffee with a rip of… No, no rips. Just coffee.
It’s a dark rich colour in my cup. This cup of coffee carries the odour of almond and ripe cherries. It has a bitter-sweet perfume to it. The taste is a match. It hits the taste buds as bitter, but it fades to something my brain registers as sweetness. This morning’s coffee is amaretto, but there is no alcohol in it.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you I have been down sizing my craft cupboard. I need a place to put some of my writing supplies. I have filled up a couple three ring note books with character profiles and all sorts of other important information from writing Book 1 and Book 2 of The Ember Files. Anyway, I have (well had, now) numerous crafting supplies: doll house making stuff, paper tole, cross stitching, jewellery making stuff, paints… I was keeping some of it for school projects that the boys were bringing home. My oldest starts grade 7 this year and projects will be different so I don’t need all these supplies anymore. I kept my quilting stuff, my puzzles, writing supplies, and a few other odds and end.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you the question of the day. Where has July gone? We finally had what I would call beautiful weather for Northern Alberta. Last Sunday started the nice weather streak and the boys and I made the best of it. We were outside almost all day and then we retreated to some air conditioning, homemade pizza, and some shark shows. We spent the end of the workday outside as well all week long. Friday was Reading University Graduation for my youngest son followed by a BBQ.
If we were having coffee, I would share that I participated in Carrot Ranch Literary Community 99-word challenge this week. It’s such a fun group. The word this week was “floating”. My post is called Elixir.
If we were having coffee, I would pass you the coffee pot and sit back to listen to your week’s highlights.
