Weekend Coffee Share, from a Safe Distance, of Course….

Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at Eclectic Ali.  If nothing else, we can keep in touch online, sharing a cyber latte, tea, or whatever you like!

I just came back from the Auto Shop where I was watching my son change my battery. He works there, and texted to tell me it wasn’t too busy.  Man, time flies! Photo circa, 2018.  I am quite proud of how well he is doing, learning to be an adult.  He asked me how my day was going and opened the door for me.  I guess I raised him right!  Friday night, I went with him to the Mexican restaurant down the street, an upbeat placed called One Night Taco Stand.  We enjoyed it and ordered a drink.  I felt so brave being out in this time of much fear of other people.  Now, however, I am thinking a lot about my 77-year-old mother and her health and safety.  The three of us all live together, and I’d hate to bring a virus home to her.  So, I am not going much of anywhere today.  I’m editing a book and reading a good bit.  I wrote a flash fiction response to the Ragtag Community’s Daily word prompt.  Click here to give it a quick read:  Isolate (Flash Fiction)

Having sat outside with the dog for 10 minutes in the sun, I’ve been back indoors other than driving out to the Auto shop.  I also had signed up for an online course in Mindfulness and started some of those modules today.  It is something I enjoy learning about that is also very good for me, helping me to not be too worried or anxious during this world’s events.  I’ll do more of that and the editing this week, since public schools have an extended Spring Break for two weeks now.  Above, I am sporting what is now called Quarantinehair.  Yes, there is actually a hashtag for it, found on Instagram. It is quite an easy ‘do, no brush!

Have a good week, my friends.  Do not stress too much, but stay healthy and safe!

  1. Looks like the online community are going to experience a bit of a boom as people stop traveling unnecessarily.

    I am wondering how long I can keep my hands from face never knew how many times it. Oh maybe I am just now aware of it

  2. Hello Pamela, I agree, this is one strange new world we’re living through. I did not realize that your mom lives with you so absolutely, you need to be careful for her sake. I wish my mom were still with us (She would be 85 now) but we lost her in 2002 to an aggressive cancer that actually started back in the early 60s as breast cancer – which she beat and lived long enough to raise all 3 of her kids and see us married.
    I so wish she were still with us. She was something special.
    Anyway, I’ve made some progress on our project but – you gave me such a great idea, it’s taken some time to research it and make things fit. I do hope you like it and am anxious to get the next draft to you.
    I think you are in for a bit more adventure than I estimated. . .
    TTY soon I hope. Perhaps with everyone in virus lock down, I’ll have fewer distractions. I’ve already had multiple events or meetings cancelled by our local lock down.


    1. Bless you too, Gary. I had spring break last week in this is now another week that I have off. I have an editing a book, which is great fun. I got news that Friday I’ll get training for online teaching and then we will be doing online teaching, for how long I don’t know. Hopefully the rest of the year, because we cannot play this safely enough.
