Good morning friends. Thank you for meeting me, I’m excited for coffee date today. I have had quite a week and a good cup of joe and some stimulating conversation is just what I need.
If we were having coffee I would start by telling you that this morning, while walking the dog, I was struck by an incredible sense of sadness when I realized that the leaves were already beginning to change color. Some are even beginning to fall and me and the dog crunched them as we walked around the neighborhood. I kept thinking about how baffling it is that people actually like this season. I mean, soon everything is just going to look dead and the air is going to turn to cold for any outdoor fun. What good about that?
I find the whole thing depressing.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that on a happier note this weekend did turn out to be a good one. Yesterday morning we went to our favorite place for brunch and enjoyed their AH-MAZING food and drink. Afterwards we did some window shopping and when it started to get too warm out we headed back home to relax and eat ice cream. Later in the evening we dressed up and headed to our favorite fancy place for dinner.
When we showed up the hostess informed us that the wait was about an hour long. I was so disappointed, and I felt stupid for not having made a reservation. We left and stood in the street looking sad and lost for a bit and decided to try the place next door. Another fancy place but one we hadn’t been to before.
It turned out to be almost better than our original plan! The food was delicious, especially the Panna cotta dessert which had mangoes, coconut powdered sugar, and mint infused honey. The service was great, and the portions were bigger for the same price. We’ll definitely be going back soon.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I think I did well with my writing last week. I posted something just about every day, and I got a ton of good feedback. I didn’t post everything I wanted to, and work got in the way a lot, but I think I did well. I am trying to remember that while this blog is very important to me, not being able to post is not the end of the world.
I’ve been taking another on of the Daily Post’s Blogging U. courses and so far this one has been very eye opening. I am learning to find inspiration in places that I haven’t before and thinking differently about the ways I can present my thoughts to readers.
I can’t wait to see what we do next week.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the zine my poems will be featured in, fēlan, will go on sale this coming Friday. I hope enough are sold that I can get a free copy, if not I’ll be buying on at full price just so I can see my name in print. I don’t care how small the publication, it feels like I’ve made one tiny step and won just one small victory.
This whole thing has motivated me so much and I am on the lookout for places to submit more work. If you have any suggestions let me know please.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that besides all that things are about the same as they were last week. Work is still work and I am still madly in love. I hope you are doing well too and I’d love to hear all about your week too. Update me in the comments and please, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Monday will be here before we know it :)
