If we were having coffee – I’d be in my jammies

img_0367If we were having coffee this lovely Saturday, I would have started without you. I simply couldn’t wait. I awoke earlier than I’d wanted to and got started on the first cup right away. I’m actually on my third cup. It’s a small cup though, the big ones haven’t been washed yet and since it’s no longer my job to wash them, I opted for the last clean one available.

Dish duty has fallen to my youngest son, he’s not very good at his job. He’s nineteen, so it’s not like he can’t reach the sink. The least he could do is make sure I have a clean coffee cup. He KNOWS how important my coffee is to me. I did clean you a cup though, it’s one of my favorites and big enough to hold plenty of fresh brew.

I’d also beg your pardon for still being in my pajamas. I’ve no intention of taking them off until this evening when I change into clean ones before bed. It’s that kind of day.

It’s not a bad day, just a quiet, lazy kind of day. So far anyway.

Have you done much Christmas shopping yet? I realized yesterday I’d better get on that. It’s still not beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here. I’m trying to find the spirit for it, but it’s hiding well this year. I’m lost in memories of Christmas times when our children were still children and their excitement bubbled over and found a way straight into my heart.

Oh, I spent yesterday at the book store. Alone. For several HOURS. My husband dropped me off and drove away to do his own thing. It was a silent hour and a half in before I realized I’d forgotten my phone at home. Bliss, I tell you, it was bliss. Later, when I checked my phone, there were six missed calls and three texts from one son, two texts from another, and a call from a number I didn’t recognize. It was a lovely, lovely afternoon.

We should meet for coffee at the book store sometime. It’s my happy place. Books and coffee. Perfect.

So, what’s on your Christmas wish list this year? Something special, I hope. Most of the time, my husband lets me pick out something I want and then makes me wait till Christmas to have it. Works out well for me, he usually has a couple of little somethings I don’t know about to surprise me with as well. He is ridiculously hard to buy for. I’ve known the man for thirty years, and still . . . This year we splurged on a giant new TV for him. I didn’t make him wait. Now I just have to find something to wrap up and put under the tree for him.

If I ever get the darned tree up and decorated anyway. Am I the last one without a tree? Maybe tomorrow. Unless you want to meet up at the book store for a cup, some conversation, and maybe a new book or two; I’m totally down for that . . .

  1. Meeting for coffee in a bookstore sounds like heaven. Maybe we’ll both leave our phones behind for a bit. We just got our tree up last night. I finished my shopping this weekend but really haven’t thought about what I want for myself.


  2. Uninterrupted time in a bookstore sounds like pure heaven to me. Today was a jammie day for me. Sometimes the day just calls for comfy clothes and relaxation. I don’t have a tree up yet, but I’m not planning to put one up. We have the Christmas lava lamp and the Christmas flamingo, and those are good enough for me. Every year since we moved here I think, “Maybe I’ll put up a tree this year” and then I don’t. We go to family and friends rather than family and friends coming to us, and that’s the main reason why I don’t bother. I have trouble shopping for my husband, too. Forty years of marriage and I still don’t know what to get him. Ah well. I manage, and it’s usually a big surprise.

    Thanks for the coffee and the chat! 🙂


  3. Spending time at the bookstore sounds wonderful! I need to find a gift still for my Mister (my significant other) but have no clue what to get him. 😕 It seems like shopping us so much harder for adults. 😄 I’m usually happy with just books- the two on my Christmas Wishlist are books written by fellow bloggers- A Journal For Damned Lovers (a book of prose by S.K. Nicholas who writes the blog that also has the same title of his book) and Sack Nasty (a book of poetry) by blogger Ra Avis who writes the blog Raursaur.

    Shopping for my Mister is difficult as well. 😕 I have no clue what to get him. 😦

    It sounds like the end to your weekend is going well! I hope you have a great upcoming week!


  4. You are not the only one without a tree. We borrow the local Inn’s tree so as not to bother at home. I decorate, but we don’t go as far as tree in the house any more. I agree that there is no place closer to heaven than a book store. Thanks for the coffee. I came in may Mrs. Claus red robe, so I am at ease with your pajamas.


  5. Something to be said for the blissfulness if uninterrupted “me” time…. And as for being in Jammies- No “pardons” needed. I was doing same yesterday and probably would be doing same today except there’s stuff to get done today – all around house, so who knows might stay in Jammies as long as possible.


  6. I like to spend time in bookstores. I used to spend a lot of time. Now I keep up on Amazon and Goodreads. I have found so many good authors I never heard of before. Our TV is old but we don’t watch enough to buy a new one. Have pleasant week.
