if we were really having coffee today, i would order mine extra hot. i’ve never understood why people do that, but today i would appreciate the scalding of my tastebuds for the break in the chill.
i would tell you about my slow drive down market street to meet you, and how i wasn’t sure i’d make it through the fog and misty rain. will it ever stop raining? then i would whisper that i truly love it and don’t want it to stop. cozy is a friend of this fast falling autumn, and cozy is a favorite friend of mine.
if you asked me about my week, i wouldn’t have answers. things are both up in the air and settling in at the same time which makes no sense even to a metaphor junkie like myself. i’m just waiting, and sipping, and enjoying the company of a new hometown and a new space to figure that out.
i would tell you how excited i am that my in-laws are coming to our new town this weekend, and how grateful i am that i don’t have a 9-5 to keep me from entertaining and just being with family.
i would ask for a refill, extra hot of course, wrap my scarf/blanket tighter and listen to you talk, hopefully for a long time, so i don’t have to go back out in the foggy mist of fall.
linking up with amy and friends for the first time. because, why not? in this new town i need more coffee dates. looking forward to checking in on the other bloggers there.
not a blogger? not part of virtual coffee? have coffee with me in the comments below, i promise to buy us a scone to share.
