If We Were Having Coffee // Roller Coaster Weather and Fast Approaching Holidays

Hello friends! I apologize for being a little late for our chat, I slept in later then I meant to this morning. I can tell you I am not happy about it either. I like to get up early on Saturday and Sunday so I can enjoy as much of my days off as possible. By early I mean 7:00 AM at the latest. This morning I slept in until 10.


If we were having coffee I would tell you that the weather has been a real roller coaster ride lately. We’ll see temperatures close to 60 degrees then well drop lower and lower over the next few days until we are freezing and snow is falling. Last Tuesday we actually had a snow day and I got to stay home, warm and cozy in bed. There are a few perks to working for a school district.

This coming week will be warm at first, today we might see 60 degrees again, and by Thanksgiving day it will be cold and snowing again. It’s too early for accumulation predictions but I hope the roads stay clear enough for everyone’s holiday travels.


If we were having coffee I would tell you that because my girlfriend has been working so much we have been doing our best to the little time we have together every night special. We spend the evening talking while she cooks and I clean and we have started watching a few shows together like Carnivàle and True Detective, both on HBO.

I loved the first season of True Detective and I can’t wait to start the second. I wish I hadn’t started Carnivàle though. It’s not that I hate it, in fact, I’m only a few episodes in and I’m hooked! I just found out that it got canceled after 2 seasons so there are going to be a lot of unanswered questions and I am sure I will be disappointed in the end.



If we were having coffee I would tell you that most of yesterday was spent cooped up in the house. By about 8:00 at night I was feeling antsy and wanted out. So, I found a few “rain check” movie tickets we had lying around, got ready, and went out to see the newest Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay—Part 2.

I’ll write up one of my “short and sweet” reviews but I will tell you right now, I was a little disappointed in it. I hate to say it but, the book was better. I might have to read them again to rid my mind of this lackluster version.


If we were having coffee I would tell you that as usual the holidays are sneaking up on me. It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is only just over 30 days away! I don’t have my plans figured out for either holiday and I don’t have any gift ideas yet either. I’m starting to panic. Well, I have one gift idea for my girlfriend but it’s something I’m making and it’s going to be a very big project.

Deep down I I’m not sure I can pull it off and I’m starting to regret the decision. I don’t think I have the time or the skill to make what I want to make for her. I don’t know why I thought this was a good idea. It’s too late to try to do something else now so I am just going to have to try my best. I just hope she likes it.


If we were having coffee I would thank you for stopping by and apologize for having to cut the visit short. There is so much to be done around the house and more errands to run than usual. I am already so late that I doubt I will be able to accomplish much today but a little something is better than nothing.

I do hope you had a good week, and either way I’d love to hear about it in the comments.

    1. I live in Aurora and we got quite a bit. I heard people further north got next to nothing! Typical Colorado storm lol We don’t have a snow blower but now I am considering investing in one. Hmmm….

          1. True. As I rewatched (and I did so a few times), I came to appreciate Woody even more. Matthew had lots of dialogue and nuttiness to chew on. Woody had to be more subtle in some ways. And also in some ways, his character was more nuanced. I don’t know how they made it through that “I’ll mow MY lawn myself” scene without laughing, though. :-)


  1. What a week! It’s just in the 50s and 60s here, so we’re chilly but not terribly cold yet.

    Sam and I started watching Carnivale but haven’t made a real effort to finish it because we know that a lot of things are going to be left unanswered when we do. We both really njoyed season 1 of True Detective but found season 2 less appealing.


    1. Yeah I wish I didn’t like Carnivale so much for that reason :(

      I heard that season 2 of True Detective wasn’t as good as the first but I will give it a try anyway. Season 1 was SOOOOOO good though! :)
