Directions from ECLECTICALLI

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from Friday, February 8th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday, February 11th at 7am (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!


If we were having coffee, I would be drinking iced tea because I hate coffee and it’s still hot. You may have coffee or tea, whichever you prefer.

It is hot enough again to have the ac on. I do have the fans in the bedroom running because I like it cool when I sleep.

My pain is becoming much, much worse. I don’t know what to do. I can barely walk and my knees are terrible. I may have to resort to a walker non-stop. I would hate to have to use a wheelchair. I still drive, I have to and getting around with walkers and/or a wheelchair would be difficult while driving, but no one to drive me.

My breathing problems are still problematic.  It is hard to sleep when you feel as if you can’t breathe.

My writing has slowed down some and I added a new possible project or projects as I have several book ideas and I haven’t finished the memoir my life as a military wife. Chapter 4 is up now. I am spending so much time sleeping that there isn’t time for anything else.

I would also tell you that Sunday is still brunch with my BFF. We meet every Sunday including this morning unless something comes up, which isn’t often. I look forward to it. We go to a place called Friendly’s. I don’t know how far they go across the USA. Maybe just NJ and PA for sure. They have had a half-off breakfast 7 days a week for years now trying to stay in business and when we went today, they changed their menu and there it was half off only Monday to Friday. We had to cut down on what we normally order and people were walking out after seeing there was no more half-off breakfast on the weekends. We could have told them that. Even the wait staff don’t expect it to last long. Most of these restaurants have closed already and the few left have cut down on the amount off.

We found a new food pantry that lets you select your food, so we don’t have to lug all that stuff home and deliver 3/4 of it to the community table downstairs. I drive my neighbor and he lugs it all.

Time for a breathing treatment as it is almost time for bed and I want to be able to sleep.

Enjoy your weekend.
