#WeekendCoffeeShare: In Which I Finally Have a Few Free Moments

If we were having coffee, we’d probably be settled on our big purple couch, or perhaps I’d roust Tank out of his spot in one of the big brown reading chairs so you could sit there. But we’d be at home, me in my pajamas and lots of books scattered about, probably on my second cup of coffee of the day already.

Little Jedi is away for the weekend with his grandparents, and there aren’t any photography gigs going on today, so it’s quiet around here for once. The week has been all-around quieter than things have been for the past month or so, and it’s been nice. Today, I’m in the middle of writing some guest posts and building back up the queue on the Monster while I have some free time.

And tonight, we’re off to another show. One of the things I love about this city is the never-ending list of things to do. This show is Storyville Rising, a burlesque cabaret based on New Orleans’s infamous former red light district. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the show, and it stars a few familiar faces and a few folks I’ve never seen perform, so I’m excited to see what it’s like.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m glad things are settling down a bit. I’ve begun to get into the routine of working in the afternoons at the nonprofit, and spending the evenings with the family before working on blogging and photography things into the wee hours. That’s actually a nice schedule for me, as I’ve always been more of a night owl than a morning person.

The new job happened just as A to Z was starting, too, and I didn’t spend quite enough time prepping posts before the challenge this year. I worked hard to keep the posts going up and keep the comments answered, and that didn’t leave a lot of time for other blogging—-including reading others’ blogs. I’ve been able to spend more time doing that this week, and that’s a nice feeling.

And now, I’m off to write more, and off to visit coffee posts for chats. Link up your posts below, and feel free to use the #WeekendCoffeeShare tag on Facebook and Twitter.

  2. So glad you’ve had a chance to relax this weekend, the show sounds exciting. I have to say that sitting drinking coffee/tea surrounded by books sounds like my idea of heaven. Your new routine sounds ideal, I’d love to have that kind of balance, sadly my kids have stopped my night owl ways.

  4. It sounds like your weekend is leaving you some breathing space. I hope that you enjoyed the show.
    I have the feeling that blogging is something that we often have to make time for…

  5. I’ve always been more of a night owl and less of a morning person myself. My weekend does not promise to be very relaxing, but may prove to be a good one. I kept my precious granddaughter (age 3) last night. While I loved it, I got very ill in the later evening. Hope it does not come back as we have plans laid out for the whole weekend.
    I’ve made my post at Life & Faith in Caneyhead.

  6. I love a house where books are scattered about, those are my favorite kinds of places to visit! I’m about to have my second cup of coffee as well, so that I can be functioning enough to write my own coffee post! Your show sounds fantastic, I’d love to see something like that. Let us know how it is!

    1. Oh, there are always books about in our house. Generally there’s just the few books I’m reading that are off shelves, though this weekend I’ve got lots of them out so I can reference them while writing.

      I’m really looking forward to it!

      My husband is a writer and comedian and works with a lot of these other performers on other gigs, and he introduced me both to the shows and to some of the people who make the shows happen. It’s been a lot of fun—something I really enjoy about living here.
