The coffee turned out great, Bill. I need it to get going for my ballet class this morning. Then my infusion in the afternoon. Followed by our dress/tech rehearsal this evening. Nicely busy day with some interesting activities.

Cheers, all. flower

Quiet day here so far. Gotta go to the library again since the DVD I got yesterday isn't playing and that is so annoying.

Hello, hello. It is 26F/3C degrees out there. It should be warmer today, into the 50s. Not too bad for the performances of our short plays tonight and tomorrow.

Starting on the first cuppa freshly brewed Arabica coffee. There is more java, folks.

Any of that coffee left? Gotta have something to keep me awake during the GOP half of today's impeachment hearing. Fortunately, the President's thumbs helped break up the boredom as did news that his political guru, Roger Stone, was convicted on all seven counts of fiddling with the truth.(slurp) Man and boy I needed that. ;)

Yes, seems as if there is SOME good news on the political front.

I've been outside cleaning the gutters of leaves in preparation for winter snows and ice. Also trimming back the purple hyacinth vines up and over the trellises and pergola.

I'll cut back the decorative grasses later this season.

I could use some nice hot herbal tea. Something like Zinger with hibiscus flowers. So good. And I will wish our Sara a spark to get our next Scamp adventure out for our admiration. And break a leg to Larry for his performance tonight and tomorrow night.

Good morning, everyone! Just been too busy to stop by this week. Nice to catch up with everyone's news.

Sara, I hope you get some inspiration for your next wonderful Scamp story soon! And hope the performances go well, Larry!

I haven't come across a Zinger since my trip to the states as a student, Elizabeth! Delicious! I'll grab a coffee and join you.

There is a fresh pot of coffee brewing now.

I see there is a newly created play/ballet called The Snow Queen that our arts center will put on in February. It will be a mixture of ballet and other forms of dance, along with singing and acting dialog. The auditions are in January. I will be considering whether I should audition for it. That's on the horizon after The Nutcracker in December.

But tonight is the short play St. Peter. That will be the run. Two nights.

Hey, how's it going?

Just finishing my second cuppa coffee. Still time for another before I need to leave for rehearsal.

Last night was fun. The second and final performance of the short play St. Peter. Then a pleasant cast party to chat with others in the cast and crew.

I'm feeling tired but I still have to get going to get this one rehearsal for the week completed. No others until next Sunday.

Have fun, folks.

Larry, glad I am to hear your thespian life is in order. But,remember well and bear in mind those words of eternal wisdom: Do not overdue it least ye be overdone. Well, okay, that's more a paraphrase than an exact quote, but you probably get the message. ;)

Howdy, folks. How's life? Just popping by for a quick visit. Not much doing these days. Winter is here, though it's a bit warmer than it was at this time a week ago so we might lose a lot of the snow. No writing happening. Nothing's really clicking and time isn't on my side in any case. That will likely change at some point.

Currently sipping an orange pekoe leavened with lime juice (just squeeze in a wedge).

I like to write something a little eerie or spooky for Hallowe'en every year. "Haunting" is what I went for this year.

Good day. I have the coffee brewing. Not a bad day today. It is a lovely 39F/4C degrees outside with clear skies.

I had the sinking feeling that my WiFi was not working this morning. I could not get my computer to move. A simple unplug, wait ten, replug, and it was going again.

This week is looking a little empty. I do need to take the 2012 Prius in to get maintenance before we go down to my sister's place for Thanksgiving next week.

Time to check the pot.

Morning, Larry. Glad to know you have things under control in the Land of Oz -- and thanks for the coffee.

Me, I have great news to share: there is a new joke on the 'Funnnies' forum and it's an Aussie story.

Don't bother thanking me. Just another fine, free service of:

Relaxing with the morning cuppa. It's fresh and hot.

The day is really nice outside. Temperature is 48F/9C degrees which is okay since it will get warmer as the day progresses.

I wonder if anyone has heard anything about the eBook we were going to put together called the Dirty Martini Anthology. That simply disappeared from our consciousness didn't it?

It didn’t so much disappear as it was pushed aside by some items of major importance in my personal life. I’m still keen on the idea if others are interested.

It's certainly on my mind. I'd happily be a part of it. I'm sure the folks who stop by here in the coffeehouse will make their thoughts clear, as well. Thank you, Maggie.

I'm sitting in a car dealership now. I had regular maintenance done. However, they discovered the starter battery is bad. I have to get it replaced. So, instead of about sixty dollars for the service, I will end up paying about two hundred and seventy more just for the battery and labor.

Life is good. Right? flower

I second or third or forth the idea of the Dirty Martini Anthology. What a wonderful idea Larry.
Just having a gift cup of Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea. A friend that is addicted gave me the teabag trying to get me hooked too. Mmmmm well, she may be right.

Good morning all! Nice to pop in and catch up with everyone's news. :)

Grey and dreary day here today. I'll grab a coffee while I glance over the day's to-do list. Even hoping to squeeze in a bit of writing!

It's book group tomorrow and my turn to host, so I'll make the dips and things ready today and make my living room fit for visitors!

You are a busy lady, Cynthia. What is the book the club members are reading?

Coffee is fresh this morning. And the weather is acting rather nicely.

There is a gent mowing the lawns in the neighborhood. I think this is the penultimate time. Chopping up the leaves on the grass with his mower. They will be testing and shutting down the sprinkler systems this coming week, I think.

Morning, afternoon, evening to all. Larry, talk about shutting off lawn sprinkler systems reminded me that in Dallas, with its long, hot temps and soil with a heavy clay content, folks don't water their lawns so much as their homes to avoid/delay/mitigate foundation cracks.

Cyn, I'm with Larry about wanting to know what book your group will be dissecting.

And is it just me, or has L**h gone down in a most major way?

Good coffee.
