virtual coffee... the real thing
It's Tuesday... time to gather for coffee.
And today? It's the real thing. With a splash of sugar-free pumpkin spice syrup. My throat is feeling better (thank you, doxycyline) and I wil reserve tea-time for this evening when I am craving something sweet. Tea is under a million calories, you know...
Today, I am wishing we really were meeting up for coffee. Not only am I feeling better, but my mood is up, infused with hope. And hope is good, no matter where it is directed. And if we were really meeting today, I'd tell you that fall is in the air, or at least the mirage of fall. Pumpkin patches are appearing along-side the roads, there is cider in my fridge, and there was chili on my table... even though the afternoons are still reaching 86 degrees.
The rest of the weekend? Well, it was so nice to have nothing on my to-do list! And my husband was working, so there was no rush to go out and do something. I did accomplish a few things... like straighten the garage, clean the floor of my sewing room. And it seems... there is nothing like cleaning up a creative mess to get the creative juices flowing again. So I spent some time creating a new bible cover, just for fun. And... on my way from taking Laura to the barn on Saturday, I pulled into an empty parking lot, sat with my coffee and watched this...
And if we were really meeting for coffee today, I would tell you that I just had my physical. And just because we are friends... I might ask you if you have had yours. Because I care about you. And friends want their friends to be as healthy as they are, right? For me it is not the actual appointment that keeps me from going... it is the making the appointment, picking up the phone. But you are important, and worth the trouble. I won't bug you... just planting the seed.
Happy Tuesday... meeting here with you, in real life or virtually, is a wonderful part of my week.
