A sweet nutty scent drifts in the air. It takes a moment to lock onto the notes of mocha that travel with it. My choice of a mocha swirl coffee this morning was a good one. It’s full bold flavor dances over my taste buds and warms my insides, and as the caffeine begins to help the fog of sleep lift all the things I want to share crowd into the space the fog vacated.
First, my online nutrition course ended early last month and I am happy to have that dedicated time back for writing. A number of projects have accumulated and I need to focus on them. Talk of projects leads me into the second thing I would like to share. I wrote my memoirs during NaNoWriMo in 2016! I started editing it twice but didn’t get far either time. I recently picked it up feeling exasperated that it has sat so long. However, the gap was wonderful because I got the distance I needed to make a good run at the editing. Continuing on with writing news I am happy to announce that I have regained my research wind for that big writing project I had discussed over coffee so many cups ago and I am eager to actually start to draft.
Second, I am very excited that it is July because one of my favourite weeks of the year happens in July: Shark Week! This year Shark Week starts on the 22, and the countdown is on. If we are having coffee on Saturday July 7th then there are 15 days between this cup of coffee and Shark Week. I am not sure what this year’s shark cakes will look like but here are some images from last years.
I will try and remember to share the new shark cakes at our next coffee date.
Anybody else a Shark Week fanatic? What does July have in store for you?
Well, I can almost see the bottom of my coffee cup but before my coffee is gone completely I have one last thing to share. I have been doing some thinking about what to do with my blog next year. Since I started to blog I have been a post-a-week blogger, and I am wondering about challenging myself in 2019 by doing the year as a post-a-day blogger. Any of you post-a-day bloggers have any comments or suggestions about this?
Thanks for the coffee, have a great day!
