Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at http://eclecticali.wordpress.com
Have a coffee, hot or iced, a tea, or whatever you like. For me, it’s an energy V8 juice. I’m still experimenting with reducing my coffee dependency. We can sit on the porch if you like. I must warn you, it’s 80 degrees and very humid in this corner of Florida today!
My dog Bixby will gladly join us. He likes to hang out where his people are. Just water for Bixby! He is looking dapper since he got a haircut yesterday, for that matter, so did I!
As a teacher, my summer is almost over, but a new school year is just beginning! July went by in a flash! In case you weren’t aware, teachers not only bring home work throughout the school year, but many teachers are currently shopping for classroom supplies already, checking class rosters, looking up student information, and already doing the background work to know their students’ need. I started that Friday. I wasn’t getting paid. It only lasted an hour; I had so much else to do. So, I’ll get off that soapbox now and ask for your prayers and positive thoughts for this new school year.
On the writing front, I am awaiting beta reader feedback for the WIP, Malachi. Ellie’s story is becoming a work in progress, more to follow later. I’ve spent at least a week going though the narration of Detours in Time to compile editing notes for my narrator. I should finish the last chapter today! It will happen soon, I can feel it! That and, I am waiting on a 15 minute checkpoint from a separate narrator for Undercurrents in Time. I really felt it needed a female voice, and I feel confident of my narrator. I can’t wait to share the news when these audiobooks hit the shelf at Audible! Since I already brought up the weather, let’s move on. Also possibly pertinent, is that I am making an effort again to grow my Mailchimp newsletter list. If you are an author, you may also know that everyone says we need a list, but I am still trying to make it work for me!
Also in the writing arena, I posted a poetic response to Friday Fictioneers about a week ago. I’d love for you to read it: https://pamelascanepa.wordpress.com/2019/07/29/break-the-endless-loop-amwriting-fridayfictioneers/
That’s all I’ve got for now. I hope you all have a wonderful week, and if you take your coffee hour on the porch, be sure to cool off afterward in front of a fan, and water the dog! Summer break is almost over for me, but summer is still in the air!

Thank you 🙏
I cam so close Pamela to teaching as you do, but one professor I had in college waved me off. It was so long ago, I don’t recall his reasons. Looking back I’m glad he did. Knowing now what I do, I don’t think I could do the job with such grace as you, and so many others I know do. You are heroes in my book.
Thank you, Gary! There are many who even work much hatder than I do, putting in extra and volunteering to help with summer orientations. There is no end to the need for volunteets and the prep work for teaching. Have a great week!
As a teacher too, I know where you are coming from! The entire week before school starts, I go into school to get things ready for my group of kids.
Yummy, thanks for the cold milk! I’ve cut my coffee back to one small cup a day, too. Been drinking fruit juice and iced water lately. It’s soo hot/humid here in Northern Kentucky. I just finished the summer childcare program at church and hope to be called back for the fall/winter semester. Hoping to be a teacher’s aide in the preschool area. I feel I got to know the littles in the past few months. They grow oh so very quick. Each has their special gifts, unique difficulties. Teaching kids is soooo cool! I love it! Wish I could afford to get licensed to teach history, or literature/Language Arts, but I’m happy to be an assistant, too. Thanks for the cold milk this week. Hope you have an awesome start to the school year.
Thank you! I hope the job with pre-schoolers comes through and you have a great year with them!

I do, too. I’ve been happier the last few months than I have been in over a decade (since the last time I worked at a preschool). Their joy is so very contagious.
