Hi. Welcome and come on in. The kettle’s on the boil and the machine for coffee only takes seconds to fire up if you’d like a cappuchino or any type of coffee or hot chocolate. In winter a hot chocolate is often warming but the weather has been so warm and beautifully warm, summer-like even that we haven’t, as yet, felt a need for warming. If the forecasters are correct that situation may change on Sunday when it is supposed to turn bitterly cold. In the sub-tropics we never get bitterly cold but it is amazing how, once acclimatised to the heat, a drop in temperature will bring out the polar fleeces.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that all is well in my world. In fact I haven’t done much except housework and work on my thesis referencing all week. Of course I have done my usual posts on word press. Friday Fictioneers and the 99 word flash fiction from Carrot Ranch being among my favourite posts of the week. I have been more successful in getting around and visiting others this week and what a wealth of posts there are. I hope I manage to have a similar amount of time to visit this coming week.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we had another delightful lunch at the Boat Shed at Cotton Tree. This time we had a voucher from my sister-in-law from Germany and I felt justified in having a desert as well as an entree and a main course. Yes I know I’m a pig. I chose the tasting plate for the desert. I hope you can see from the picture what a great choice I made. I’m still drooling just at the thought of it.
and with such a magnificent view to be had – what more could one ask.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you Muffin excelled herself this week at dog training. Nothing spooked her and she behaved just as she should and that I finished an enjoyable read Treading Water by Angie Oakley which I recommend and will write a review of in the next couple of weeks. I’ve started the second in a trilogy by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and so far it is proving as good as the first.
So as I have so little to tell you perhaps you can start talking and tell me what you would tell me if we were having coffee. My ears are waggling in anticipation. Thank you Diana for hosting our coffee mornings.
