No coffee needed for Bixby!
Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at http://eclecticali.wordpress.com
Summer is in full swing, and I’m adjusting to sleeping in, more time with the dog, and a lot less stress! On the topic of stress, I’ve been making an effort to have at least two days weekly where I only drink half a cup of coffee. Let me be honest, yesterday was the second day this week, and my ability to focus was really lacking. I was working on a few of my goals as an author, but I was pretty distracted and quite slow to gain traction. I did make it to yoga, though, and, wow! That is always good for my mood and relaxation.
I’ve been attending yoga twice weekly since summer’s start and going to Stretchzone in addition to more frequent walks. Stretchzone is a place where you do assisted stretch with a person who is usually licensed in Sports Medicine or physical therapy. I really like it, and I’m trying it because having butt in chair to write or laying around reading ( both of which I’ve been doing) can bother my lower back and sciatica.
Seen on Thursday’s walk. Colorful Shrooms!
So what am I up to as an author? Why am I sitting in that chair? I’ve got Detours in Time in audiobook production with an awesome narrator, I’m working on Malachi (work in progress), and I’m starting Undercurrents in Time on the audiobook process. I have to prepare files of scenes from Undercurrents that lend themselves to narration. ( Starting that this week). I’ve had Detours in Time on a Countdown deal for .99 this week which ends Sunday. Detours in Time is a fun, yet thought-provoking read of a woman and a scientist who travel to the future, then back and forward again, and as a result, they learn a lot about their own families and themselves, as well as encountering some moral dilemmas. Can you just observe a train-wreck? That was metaphorical, but think about it. Find out about Detours in Time or download it here:
BTW, Undercurrents, the continuation, will also be on a Countdown deal in two to three weeks. I’ll keep you posted, because someone might be interested!
Today, my dog, Bixby and I are on the road with my boyfriend, Kenny. We’re going to Brunswick, Ga to see his dad and stepmom. It will be a low key visit, with conversation and lunch at his house. We’ll be quite entertained watching my dog and their little poodle chase each other around, though!

The author tasks and goals will wait until tomorrow, after I’ve enjoyed some sunshine! Thank you for stopping by for our coffee chat, and have a great summer week!

Such a cute dog. Good luck with the audiobook.
Thank you, Carol!
Sounds like a fabulous summer! I hope the little road trip was fun. I drastically cut down on my coffee intake a few months ago. I still drink coffee, but less than one cup a day. I added matcha tea (the original real deal, not the sugary stuff,) and organifi’s green and red juice. It actually gives me better, more lasting focus than coffee did. Now when I drink coffee its because I like the taste of it. Best of luck with your audio book!
Thank you! I need to try macha tea.

Hi Pamela. I’m late getting back to the shares I didn’t get to over the weekend, but hope your trip was wonderful. Bixby looks like such a happy guy. I did not know you too were dealing with sciatic pain. in the 18 months leading up to June 2018, I learned how bad this pain can be. In my case the doctor found the problem and a (relatively) simple surgery corrected it and a year later, I’m still getting older but that pain remains only a memory. I hope some kind of solution surfaces for you.
Because you’re interested in stuff like this, if you’ve not seen my coffee share for last weekend (190622) I hope you circle back to do so. I do some thinking out loud about the idea of using a scientific phenomenon as an antagonist and use some space up talking about little known facts of sun spots and solar wind. I thought of you as I wrote it.
Hope all is well. Sorry my visit is so late this round.
Gary, I sure appreciate stopping by. No worries about being late! I will look for your coffee share. I do have trouble at times when I am trying to look at someone site from my phone as far as accessing all the features, but I’m going to check right now. By the way, the assisted stretch just once a week and going to yoga twice a week has been doing a pretty good job on my sciatica, and I also don’t let myself sit down and write for too many hours in a row. Have a great week!
