Monday Morning Coffee


I love coffee (and tea!), and I love a good chat with friends.  With the kids home on winter break, the last two weeks were a wonderful family-centered time. That ended this morning, with the start of school for the kids and work for the adults.  But there are compensations, among which is some adult time with friends. So enjoy a coffee or tea, whether it’s morning or not, along with me.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask how your Christmas and New Year’s were.  Our holidays were lovely, and after a week off, I feel so relaxed.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about a play I saw called Marjorie Prime.  The play itself was interesting and moving.  And the production was perfect. But the sublime acting made the entire experience.  I feel privileged to have seen that kind of talent in a tiny theater with less than 100 seats.  And every time I see theater, I think, “I should see more theater.”

If we were having coffee, and you were a pen person, I’d tell you I’m totally in love with one of the new inks I’m testing now.  I want to give it a more thorough workout before reviewing it, but it looks like a great one.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you we had to get a new clothes washer unexpectedly last week.  Boring.  But this new one has a window so you can see the clothes go round.  I have to admit that there’s some entertainment value in that.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I’m trying new contacts this week, which are great, except I had to run out to Walgreen’s to get emergency reading glasses.  If you’re under 40, have your fun now.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask what we’re all making for dinner tonight.  Having to make real dinners is part of the downside to being back on a normal schedule.  But I’m upping my game starting now.  Winter is a good time to cook.

And then I’d get to hear what’s new with your life.  I hope things are going well.

  1. I looked up the play. It does sound wonderful – very moving. I’d love to see it, and it looks like I might after a fashion – it’s being made into a movie. Unless they change it too much!

    Small theaters are amazing! It really has that immediacy and intimacy that elevates theater into something more than a less elaborate version of the cinema, no matter how elaborate or minimalistic the actual stage production itself.

    I thought most washers had a window? Except for a few smaller ones that load from the top? Still, it IS fun – and sometimes helpful, letting you see that red sock of doom before the drum’s filled up with water so you can take it out 😉
