Thinking about Coffee…

Taking a breath and clearing your head is a hard thing to do especially when you are thinking about coffee. One can not help, but Smile.


I don’t know why I didn’t take a course on “how to launch your blog in a weekend” before I actually started a blog. I have learned a lot and I am still in a “wow moment,” and now having second thoughts on which directions I should be going in.

My mind may be pulling me in so many directions right now and I know what I want to do and how to do them. I am just wondering how to pay for my new way of thinking.

Whoever said, “Starting something over was easy” they were right. It’s not starting that gets in the way, or  following through on  learning a new way of thinking, but paying for these new thoughts. Someone should teach how to pay for these new ideas…

I was onto something smart, but then another thought crossed my mind and once again coffee is taking over. It is way too hot for my regular. The thought of going to Starbucks is OUT of the questions. I really don’t feel like taking two buses to get there. Let’s see what I can look up….

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee

Enjoy a delicious cold brew coffee this summer, and save money by skipping the coffee shops. For the best glass, the recommended Cold Brew Coffee Ratio is explained, so you can choose to enjoy your…

I have been meaning to try my hand at making my own iced coffee, but the idea of me messing up my one and only cup of coffee. Well, I am only supposed to drink one cup, but it is the weekend and my first one off in two months. I believe I will enjoy two cups today.

One of the best coffee I have ever tasted is Kahlua Coffee. Peppermint is at the top of my list, but that only comes out during Christmas. Then again I wonder if I can order it online. We are in this new age world where one can do almost anything online…..

The original or vanilla Kahlua coffee is what I will be drinking in a few moments, but I am still thinking about drinking it cold. Think I will go on a little hunt to see what else I can find.

I did not realize there were so many to be made. I was supposed to add a few, but I wanted something I could make now and wasn’t thinking as I moved on to another possibility. I am giving up and going to try it my way and see what happens.

I will prepare it the way I normally do, only a little stronger, put it in the refrigerator, and hope for the best. It’s 9:37am EST…. I will complete this post in a few hours to add a pic and hopefully a good review of my creation…. 

I am not going to feel gently about spending a few hours working on another project and not giving this one half that amount of time. The problem I am having is, coffee!

9/7/2020 11:48am ~ I followed directions on how to make ice coffee and it was suggested to add sugar when the coffee was hot and the refrigerate (a day would be best). I tried this and I wish I had saved that site, because this wasn’t good. 

I don’t feel like making coffee now. I can’t believe I said that, but “No Coffee” today..

**A side note today is 9/9/2020 I couldn’t get my pictures to look like it does in my google doc, which is where I type my work, and wasn’t going to post this story. Then I realized I worked on it to be posted so it will be posted.

Today I will have a good cup of coffee…..

Virtual Cafe

When you think about a coffee shop. You would be hoping to get in and out with a hot or cold drink in one hand and maybe something sweet in your other hand. You could be meeting a friend to catch up on all times or have a quick business meeting.

Caribou Coffee Company is an American coffee company and coffeehouse chain. Caribou Coffee was founded in Edina, Minnesota, in 1992. As of May 2015, the company operates 603[2] locations worldwide.

Coffee shops offered other drinks besides coffee like flavor tea, or hot chocolate for those who don’t drink coffee. Whatever your reason for going to a coffee shop is totally up to you.


· Vegan Gluten free                                    ·Homemade Southern Sweet Tea is the house wine of the south. This recipe comes out perfect every single time thanks to a simple tip.

That is a real coffee shop, but this is a virtual cafe. If you are like me you are probably trying to figure out what is a “Virtual Cafe”?  I am playing on words in order to have an area where I can talk about the books I have read.

Yes, a book review, but not like any other book reviews. I love the wonder of words from past books to books that just came out. There have been times when I have read a book twice and totally missed something the first time. A good book is sometimes worth reading one more time. The second time could be the best time.

I have read these books maybe twice if NOT more then that and I may have started in a cafe (before going to work) with  a cup of coffee as I was enjoying what I was reading.                                                                                  

A blog is another outlet to be creative and I believe everyone should be creative once in a while.  The best thing about my blog, you may not know what you are going to be reading, until I hit that send button, and I hope my words will be a good surprise?

A Plan that didn’t go as Planned…

The day started off with a plan…

The plan was to get in some writing, 

a  little school work,

Enjoy a game or two….

Nothing on that list got done

other then my writing 

and playing games….

I am still able to Smile, because

I was able to cut a lot of words 

from my overworked book,

and playing games is always fun…. 

I did enjoyed a healthy salad 

for lunch.

I am still working on

A better Me…

Time to prepare




A Cane isn’t the End!

I never thought I would have to use a cane. I am just barely over the sentry mark (52 years young) and knowing I shouldn’t have a cane in my hand. I enjoyed my 30min walk outside. I will get back to a Better me and this cane WILL NOT BE NEEDED MUCH LONGER.

 I can walk freely, but the pain in my back says, “slow down and take a seat.” To think I got the cane, because my job (where I am standing for four hours) doesn’t want to honor my doctor’s note (the note said I needed a chair). Which said I needed the chair, because this is temporary. 

Then again if I cannot heal, my job doesn’t care, but I am putting my faith where it needs to be. This pain WILL NOT be with me for long nor will I be at the dead end job for long.

It’s 8:29am let me get back to my boring classes, because I need more knowledge to be free..

The time is 9:23am I got through four videos before my mind started going a different direction. I wish this instructor would just teach what is needed, and stop the unnecessary words (telling things we don’t need as beginners) and talking about stuff that is in the next video. One topic at a time.

I am going to take a break from this, but not what I need to do. It is time to edit my book. I am getting closer to that 50000 thousand word count every day. I believe I am just a little over 63000 now. Although I really just want a cup of coffee, work first relaxes later…

11:00am The Real just came on. I know it’s a repeat, but I am home and I am NOT missing my ladies if I can help it. I am smiling, one chapter down at 62885 word count, and now I am ready to have a cup of coffee.

I believe I am going to watch a double feature of Mary Poppins as I work on a new crochet project. I realized yesterday that I needed some reviews on my projects and I have lost contact with a lot of my customers. Some was co – workers from long ago jobs, to a few passing friends I only spoke with while on the bus or friends who have moved away.

The few friends I am still in touch with, I will be putting out words to them that I need help, and I will be giving a few gifts away to add a little more to my creative resume. (Smile)

I am still ignoring those who say I should sell and not accept job offers by request. For some reason people believe I can make a blanket in a day (I am shacking my head) and I just give them a stupid look and move on.

I am only one person doing my best and I am blessed as always. My goal is to have my new Blog/Website ready by the first of next month. I am so looking forward to working Smart and no longer for a company who does not care. My time and energy will go to where I am most happy as it should be. I believe to give your best one has to be at their best.
