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 to have a coffee chat this weekend or maybe ice tea as the temps have risen to the near 70’s or higher at times of the day, almost every day now. It rarely drops except overnight sometimes. I am still complaining about the heat in my 6th floor apartment. I still have the air on to try and bring it down some. The fans are going too! I doubt we will have too many cold days from now on. I pay electric so running ac from April to October or November is running up my bill. I actually had to pay my first electric bill since I moved in a year ago. It was $1.95 LOL! I qualify for help from the state for my electric bill and I don’t pay for heating although it is hardly on so the bill wouldn’t be much if I did pay for it, but I’m glad I don’t anyhow. What helped last year was the cooling grant I qualified for because of my asthma. I need the air to keep my asthma under control and help with the wheezing during very humid days. I don’t know if that is available every year or not. Halfway through the year we did get a supplemental one which was what helped keep our bills low along with the monthly discount from the state.
I have been reading a lot of books and web sites on writing memoir. I even laid it out in Word and started filling in the chapters. Trying to find the section of my life to write about was a little harder. Memoirs are just small sections where an autobiography is your whole life starting with “I was born on…” I decided on my marriage, running just prior to and my husband joining the military and those military years, then through getting out and on until the divorce. Still trying to decide if a paragraph at the end on what led me to be who I am. I believe childhood is part of what makes us who we are as adults.
Tomorrow is brunch with the BFF. Wait all week for this.
My pain is just so bad right now. And to top it off the pain doctor cut my pain pills from 4 a day to 3 a day. Still trying to find out why she cut them. Having to wait those 2 extra hours allows the pain to really get a hold of me before I can take the next pain pill.
Have a great week everyone!
