Saturday Morning Coffee

Come on in, friend; I’ve been expecting you! It’s a chilly Saturday morning after the abnormally warm days we’ve had this week, so the coffee’s fresh, hot, and strong.  Continue reading “Saturday Morning Coffee”

Saturday Morning Coffee

Sunday Snapshots

Food & Drink featured prominently this week:

IMG_3527I’ll try anything once; even chocolate-covered maple smoke bacon soda.

Yes, you read that sentence correctly.

First Impression: It’s not that bad.

Second Impression: Just a tad sweet . . .

Third Impression: I’m drinking carbonated chocolate syrup.

Fourth Impression: Oh dear Lord, that aftertaste!

Final Impression: This is vile; the bottlers should be charged with crimes against humanity.

A former student now living in Maine brought me a 12-pack of Moxie!

With patience, I can make this last for six months.

For the record, I still have 3 of the bottles I received on July 4.


Slice of Apple Pie

I baked three apple pies this week.

My apple corer/peeler/slicer no longer cores or slices.

Sadness.

My mother called to confirm I’d bake one for her and Dad when they visit.

I’d count that as a success.


ChipotleI went to Chipotle for the second time in my life.

I don’t normally photograph my meals, but this one just looked so good on the tray.

Mine is the one on the right.

I ordered the steak bowl with black beans, vegetables, mild salsa, sour cream, and cheese.

I’m not a fan of guacamole.

I like avocado and mayonnaise on their own.

Together, not so much.

I walked downtown

By now you know I took pictures of bricks:

Of course, I also made time for books:

Casual Vacancy NotesI found this relationship schematic in the front of A Casual Vacancy. I’m sure it will make sense at some point, but I’m more concerned with the fact this was written in a library book.


 

Package from England (Blink of the Screen)Another package came this week!

Royal Mail and USPS delivered my copy of A Blink of the Screen by Terry Pratchett.

My TBR continues to grow.

Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you . . .


Also, I finally caught up with my Reading Challenge!

Goodreads Challenge

 

It feels good to be back on track.

Except – as of today – I’m already behind again.

I’ll make it up this week.

Maybe.

Probably not.

What did I do this week?

Well . . .

I finally finished my shrubbery; Kelly oversaw the final cleanup.

The foreman always has the cushy job!

Kelly on Brick Steps
A friend visited from Georgia; we went bowling!

Bowling with Nicknames
Obviously these are not our real names; can you guess who I was?

Oh, and here are the scores:

Bowling with Nicknames ScoresWe were supposed to visit the Outer Banks; unfortunately, he was called back to work and we didn’t go.

Sadness.

The trees fell.

More Sadness.

Goodbye TreesThe United States defeated Germany in the Women’s World Cup Semifinals.

Even More Sadness.

USA v Germany Women's World CupHowever, this week America celebrated its Independence Day!

Despite my post yesterday, I’m still proud to be an American.

I wore my traditional Old Navy Flag Tee:

Enjoyed some Moxie:

Chowed down on burgers, hotdogs, chips, pickles, potato salad, cupcakes, cookies, and strawberry shortcake!
