#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : LOOKS LIKE SNOW!


#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : LOOKS LIKE SNOW!

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”!

*********************************

It is just after 10:30 PM Sunday night and the long predicted snow has started. It is light now, but supposed to be for 2 days so who knows what it will bring. The bad thing is this week is full of doctor appointments. Hoping that it amounts to nothing. I can no longer shovel so depending on what we receive in inches will depend on whether I have to cancel or not. I live in a senior high-rise apartment dwelling and they don’t want us out and about until they have cleared the driving and walking areas. Heaven knows I can’t physically do it so will have to wait until tomorrow and see what develops.

I could use a nice cup of hot tea right now. I have my windows open since I live on the 6th floor and the heat rises. Rarely do I have to put the heat on and my windows are almost always open and while inside I live in shorts all winter.

My body is still aching more than usual due to the fall on the concrete floor here on  my knees. Public housing, so no carpets with padding just that indoor/outdoor carpet that covers the concrete. Ugh! Not my first fall either.

Day 10 Prompt –Billowy blobs and booby traps,

Billowy blobs and booby traps.

Piles of junk, bound for mishaps.

Clean that up my mom will always shout.

Other wise I will throw you out.

This is a home and not a barn.

I just tripped again, oh gosh darn.
