If We Were Having Coffee

 

If We Were Having Coffee

 

Hello! Come on in. Let’s have a nice visit, shall we?

Whatever you would like to drink, I’m sure I can find something to suit you. As for me, I’ll have my usual coffee.

It’s been a while since our last coffee clutch hasn’t it? We will have to catch up on each other’s news. Sit, please, make yourself at home. Don’t mind the cat and dog hair. It’s been too long since I vacuumed. I try to keep up with the housework, but when I’m the only one able to do all the house chores I fall behind sometimes.

Also, housework equals boring. 😉

If we were having coffee, I would first share with you the news that today is Dave’s (Rara’s husband also known as Grayson Queen) memorial service was this morning in California. Sadly he passed away way too soon. I still am not quite over the shock on how fast it came about and that he is really gone. I do know of a few bloggers who will be attending the memorial. One for sure is DJ Matticus who has asked fellow bloggers to wear blue today in honor of Dave and Rara.

Rara, I have heard will be attending the memorial. She won’t be shackled (thank goodness), but she will be wearing her prison blue uniform. So, I have worn a blue blouse to show support. We love and miss you Rara.

If we were having coffee, I would also like to mention Mental Mama’s (Erin) Summer Drawing Contest. I completely forgot about it for Friday and I feel terrible about it. So I did a quick and badly drawn J for her contest. I haven’t drawn anything in many years. So I hope you forgive how bad it is. Next time I will be drawing a flower and hopefully it will turn out better.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you what glorious weather we’ve been having in my little corner of Alberta, Canada. Wonderful spring warmth and plenty of sunshine. The flowers are in full bloom and the grass is getting tall.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you how much I am enjoying writing and interacting with readers on my story ‘The ABC’s of Death’. I’m up to chapter 39 and getting closer to the ending. I love how my readers get into it and root for the good guy and boo the bad. You guys are the best!

If we were having coffee, I would update you on my mom and brother’s health. The last we spoke my brother survived a brain aneurysm and my mom thought she was having more heart problems. I’m happy to report both are doing fine now. My brother is back home and taking care of his cats. My mom doesn’t have any extra heart problems. Although the doctors did find her extremely anemic. That is being taken care of with medication.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am planning on adding to my very bare Pinterest boards this weekend. I have read some really good advice on setting up boards on there for writers. I know, I know, it’s a major time suck, but it is a lot of fun. Wish me well and if you hear me yelling for someone to save me, throw me a lifeline will ya? LOL

That’s about it for now. I do hope all those that are celebrating Memorial weekend have a safe and wonderful holiday. Please, don’t forget what the holiday stands for. Even if you aren’t celebrating it, give a moment of silence and thanks for all our men and women in the armed forces throughout the world. They deserve our respect and more.
