{virtual coffee}

Storm's a 'comin! The air is heavy and the wind is whipping... but you might still want to stop by for coffee today, since my air might just be a touch warmer than yours. Seventy-seven. I know I should be appreciating it, but I could use a crisp oh-I'm-alive kind of breeze.  It's not been an easy day... tragedy in our neck of the woods.  I'd love the distraction of friends. 

If you were going to stop by for coffee... you would get a sneak peek at my project-in-progress!  I have been bit by the motivation bug and I've been crafting up a storm these past two weekends!  Refashioning tees and spreading Mod Podge... loving that I'm making all sorts of stuff from what I already have!
Hundreds of postcards all puzzle pieced together... on my dining room table.  I am always really thankful for hand-me-down furniture... and once in a while I get brave and decide that whatever I do certainly won't ruin it.  I'm excited to finish it!

If you were really coming for coffee today I hope we'd laugh right through every conversation and maybe gasp about how January is almost over and how life seems to be moving in fast-forward.    And I would let you know that our friend George is on his way home from Afghanistan right now.  Hallelujah!  That was our good news of the day... and I was glad to have some happy tears to mix in with the others...

linking up to Amy at Lucky 13 for {virtual coffee}... come on over and join us!

Yes, any distraction from the tragedy at hand would be welcome.
{I need to stay away from NDNews and the commentators!)
I cant wait to see this new project; gosh I love postcards!
George? I don't know him, but I am sure happy he is coming home now!
