Welcome and come on in. Before we start would you like a beverage – I have almost everything in the hot drink department and you are limited in the cold drinks to water, water or water with cordial. I do have fizzy water that you are welcome to try.
As we drink our coffee lets give some thought to those that have already been effected by Cyclone Irma and those that are waiting for it to arrive. I know that waiting feeling but I’ve never experienced anything like Irma and I know how terrifying it must be. I hope everyone stays safe.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that unlike many parts of the world our weather has been beautiful as far as clear skies and warm temperatures. Our only need is we desperately need rain. It seems ironic that parts of the world are getting much more than they want and some are getting little. With weather such as ours it is difficult not to have had a happy week. Monday started off with yoga, Tuesday a massage, Wednesday a coffee with a friend who is now in the States, Thursday a skin cancer check and Friday lunch with Mum and a romantic dinner for two followed by the theatre Friday evening. The only fly in that perfect week was the doctor discovering a mole on Roger which is being removed on Monday.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I saw the David Williamson play “Jack of Hearts”. The playwright is probably the best known in Australia and has done screen plays for 24 films including Gallipoli, Pharlap and The Year of Living Dangerously. It was a superb production and very funny. For an amateur theatrical company the acting was superb (I doubt could have been done better anywhere.) Mind you most of the actors have a background of some sort in the theatre. If you live or visit in Noosa you should go and see this play.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I am excited that I am going to be hosting a writing competition for Carrot Ranch in October. Keep your eyes open. I will be telling you more about it in the coming weeks.
I have finished reading Girt by David Hunt. I haven’t laughed out loud in so long when reading a book it was a real joy. It was so good that it is the first book in years that I have been guilty of disturbing Roger’s pursuits to read him passages out loud. He is reading it now. I’ll do a full review on it sometime during the week. My writing is still scant but I can feel it is about to burst forth.
Now it is your turn. How was your week? Has your weather been warmer/colder, wetter/drier. Have you read any good books or seen any good films? Thank you for dropping in for coffee and thank you to our weekend coffee host, Diana, from part-time monster for having us and giving us a place to meet up.
