Coffee Conversations

image via
Hello, hello, hello! 
I unintentionally slept through my alarm this morning, so I’m already feeling behind the curve. Then I remind myself that I’m “at work” before most people are who have to travel to their jobs, so I relax a little. If I had it my way, I’d be up at 5am every morning starting work. However, staying up until 11 something the night before doesn’t exactly make waking up before the sun easy. I’ve got some “in studio” work to do this AM and then I’m hoping to head to a coffee shop to work on some computer stuff this afternoon. Apparently, it’s national coffee day, so maybe I’ll get some free drip coffee out of it! 
I’m not so patiently awaiting the arrival of our headboard! It took me over a month to find one that I even liked and then it was supposed to be delivered Wednesday. Now, when I check the tracking information, it’s just sitting somewhere with Fedex with no update. Once I get this beauty in our home, the last thing left to do is the wall with our wedding photos! 
I just started listing to Malcolm Gladwell’s, Revisionist History podcast yesterday. I only listened to one episode, but I’m enjoying it!  
If you are a fan of chili and you haven’t tried this recipe, YOU MUST! I added celery and halved the recipe, which was the perfect amount for 6 servings. I can’t wait to make it again! Also, it pairs really well with this skillet cornbread, which is amazing. 
There are three new candle scents for Elisabeth Ashlie this week, did you hear? Vanilla Latte, Warm Tiramisu, and Cozy Cabin
I’m in the market for a new book and considering starting this one this weekend – I’ve heard so many good things!
My goal this weekend is to talk Mike into going to a pumpkin farm to get some pumpkins and apple cider donuts.  
Have a great weekend!

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesnโ€™t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639

  11. I'm behind on my blog reading but The Apple House in Linden, VA is famous for the apple donuts and their BBQ makes it a perfect lunch spot if you are out for a country drive (also the wineries in that area is nice too). -Mary

I have never been this dissapointed and sad in my life before. I really want to thank my stars I took courage to contact him and for all his tender kindness towards assisting me and giving me exactly what I requested for in the hack. You can also take a bold step t contact him and findout about your cheating spouse: CYBERHACKPROS@GMAIL.COM call and text +1 512 605 1256
