Weekend Coffee Share 8/3/19

COFFEE. GOLD BORDER -- Luiz Jorge Artista - PX

If we were having coffee together today, I’d be serving you my Folgiers half & half blend. I love Folgiers.  I generally enjoy Maxwell House coffee as well. Many of my family members and friends use the Keurig coffee makers, and they’re okay, but the coffee just doesn’t taste as good as it does when I brew my own by the pot.

If we were visiting today, I’d probably tell you about a new series of Christian ministry meetings I’m holding at the local civic center, because they are on the top of my “to-do” list. The first one was last month and went very well. The people who attended said they were very blessed, and the second meeting is scheduled for August 15. So I’m busy, busy, busy trying to get out all the advertising and notifications throughout the local media.

I would probably also tell you that I’m feeling pretty guilty because my house really needs a good cleaning, but telling you about my guilt is probably as far as I would go. I probably won’t do much actual cleaning this weekend. With the meeting to plan, a prayer meeting Sunday evening, and my newest journal project hanging over my  head, I just can’t seem to focus on the vacuum, the dust rag, or the dishpan.

I’m sure, if I gave you plenty of refills on coffee and some cookies to go with them, you’d be sure to sympathize with me and agree that the cleaning should come farther down on the list than those other jobs. Oh, and that reminds me: I was going to pick up a new package of chocolate cookies when I was at Wal Mart a couple hours ago, and I forgot!

Not to worry, though. I have enough cookies left from some packages I bought last week — and some M&M candies as well. I’ll be fine.

Well, enjoy your coffee this weekend and be good to yourselves. I’ll try to get around and visit several of you and try out your brew before the weekend’s over as well.

  1. Sounds like a nice visit, but I still love my Keurig. Especially since I am the only one who drinks coffee here. Dan is a tea man. 🙂

    1. I actually drink a good deal of hot tea myself. There’s a lot to be said for it. I’m generally carrying around a cup of something hot wherever I go because I don’t do cold drinks much at all. And I get aggravated at restaurants like Long John Silvers, Taco Bell, Arby’s , and a few others that don’t offer customers anything warm to drink with their meal. I don’t do well with cold drinks when I eat a meal, and I generally don’t do business with restaurants who won’t offer a warm drink alternative.

        1. I would but I absolutely hate flying (and can’t afford it anyway), and my car is so old that I don’t know if it feels up to such a long trip. One of my best friends for decades and still a frequent prayer partner by phone lives in Lakeland, with her family, and they offered to fly me down to visit them. But my flying experiences have been pretty negative, and I cannot stand being cooped up in such close quarters with so many people with no way to step out for a bit. I don’t fly unless the Lord makes it a specific ASSIGNMENT. And He hasn’t done that for a very long time, for which I’m grateful. 🙂

          1. Was in Lakeland today. See, we could have had coffee if you had taken your friend’s offer. 🙃🤔🙂👍

  2. My #1 favorite is CDM, from New Orleans, with chickory. I usually purchase Maxwell House Smooth Bold locally, and add a tiny bit of chickory to the dry grounds. But when you want COFFEE, well, coffee can be COFFEE… just as water is water when you’re dying of thirst!

      1. Ooohh, don’t rule out a bit of chicory with CDM or Community Coffee. Brings me home to NOLA for a cup. Add a beignet and worldly problems melt away for a moment. But then again, a good tea or coffee works just fine as well. Stop by anytime!

    1. That would be great. Maybe someday. I’d love to visit Australia and New Zealand as well, but I’m not sure how likely it is that I’ll get there. Two years ago I had a student in my writing class who was from New Zealand. She’s originally from the States, but has lived in N.Z. for many years with her husband and children. But they had come to the States for 6 months to have a long visit with all of her family, and since she is a writer, she wanted to take my class. It was interesting to learn how much of her normal life was the same and how much was different from ours over here. Getting to know her — and you (via the Internet) — has sparked my interest in your corner of the world.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
