Weekend Coffee Post April 16, 2017

Sunday, nooooooo! Well, it is what it is, I suppose. This weekend flew by! I suppose that means I had fun! It wasn’t too bad of a weekend, as far as quickly-flying-by weekends go. My iPhone’s weather app keeps telling me it’s in the 70’s but I’m calling shenanigans. I’ve been freezing since last weekend and I’m just basically ready for summer. Beyond ready for summer! Either that or I need to move somewhere tropical! That would be lovely!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that today was absolutely wonderful! The Mister and I and the kids went to the parent’s house and dyed hard boiled eggs and then had an egg hunt! It was a lot of fun as always and I think this year was one of the most challenging years as far as our egg hunts go. The Parent’s were really getting creative with their egg hiding spots and we even had to do a few “Hotter, Colder” clues. Our eggs turned out wonderfully though and overall everyone had a lot of fun!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I’ve recently discovered a blog, ambroseandelsie, on WordPress that is an unraveling novel, post by post. It’s a story about a girl who falls in love with a vampire, but then there’s a gargoyle, and then there’s competition and hunters, and, and, and… I’m hooked which actually surprises me because honestly it’s not really my genre of preference but I can’t get enough. It’s (in my opinion) very well written and I’m excited to see what happens next! I do very much admire the writer, she is very consistent with her scenes as far as the whole story makes sense to me, there aren’t any gaps of “Well wait, that doesn’t make sense.” The story is just flowing and I adore it.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that reading this story of Ambrose and Elsie has once again inspired me. I’ve told myself, “I can do this. I can write fiction.” and already the ideas are swirling around in my head. I don’t actually know if I can write fiction because I’ve only ever finished one fictional (based on facts) story that I keep telling myself I need to edit, but that thing was painful enough to write the first time, I don’t know if I can write it all over again. I actually think I deleted every chapter I wrote of it just because the thought of reading over the words again sent me into an anxious mess. I’ll get around to playing with ideas, I’m sure…

All in all this weekend was a good one. It was relaxing, although I have laundry I still need to dry and fold/hang up, sleep to catch up on, mental preparations to go through for tomorrow. I’m hoping this coming up week will go smoothly and stress-free. I could use some stress-free days. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that this upcoming week is smooth sailing! Until next weekend!

  1. Ah, 70s would be perfect 😉 (It did get into the high 80s yesterday, but will be down in the 40s and 50s for a high later in the week).

    Sounds like a good weekend. I hope you have a great week ahead (even if today i Monday 😉 )

  2. I’ve heard that writing can be therapeautic and just as therapeutic can be deleting or trashing the words that were written… I don’t know, but makes sense to me. Hope your weekend actually wasa good one.
