Greetings! I recently stumbled upon some interesting blogs all beginning with the statement, If we were having coffee. I found the posts to be quite interesting and decided I would give it a try. It was originally started by a blogger, Part-Time Monster.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that today is the last day of my Spring Break and tomorrow it’s back to reality.
I’d tell you that I’ve enjoyed my time off. I didn’t get as much accomplished as I would have liked, but I did manage to get a few things done during my time off. There never seems to be enough hours in the day, even when you don’t have to work.
I’d tell you that I have NOT worked out my entire vacation 😮
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my daughter has enjoyed her time away from school and dance. She does however miss all of her dance friends. I took her and one of her friends to Sky Zone, a local trampoline park. They had a blast!
I’d tell you about First Friday. It’s a local event held on the First Friday of the month at the local Children’s/Art museum. My daughter enjoyed all of the hands on children’s exhibits and I have to admit, I did as well :-). There was a live band and an open mic contest. Also, Friday was the reveal of the new MLK exhibit! What many don’t know is that Martin Luther King, Jr gave his I Have a Dream speech in the small city of Rocky Mount back in 1962 prior to giving the speech during the march in Washington, DC in 1963. What rich history to learn about the small city of Rocky Mount!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about the professor from NC State who was able to locate the speech that was given in Rocky Mount and have it restored. I’d tell you about the book that he has published that describes the correlation between King’s speeches and Langston Hughes’ poetry.
I’d probably go on and on about the subject of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and all of the history that I’ve learned, but you’d probably get bored and start rolling your eyes at me.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve decided to move to a self-hosted site! For my non-blogging friends, that means I’ll be able to monetize my site without all of the red tape. It’s all mine! I’d ask for your blessings and support.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve been having allergic reactions all week! My face has swelled, my eye has swelled, my hand and my wrist. Benadryl has been my best friend this week. You’d probably ask me if I’ve been to the doctor. Thousands of dollars later and an Epi-pen prescription, I have no answers as to why I experience swelling.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that dating in your 30s is way different than it was in your teens and early 20s.
If we were having coffee, you’d probably ask if I’ve found “the one.” I’d sip my coffee, smile and tell you to stick around for a while and maybe you’ll find 😉
If we were having coffee, what would you share?
Til next time…
