Weekend Coffee Share #SOLC Day 10

Grab your cup of coffee and sit in a comfortable chair around this oak table and let’s chat! I am having my regular black coffee this morning. I am on my third cup though.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers March Slice of Life Challenge. Teachers all over the world are posting on their blogs daily and at the TWT blog and then comment on at least 3 posts. There are lots of teacher-writers there I follow regularly and I have already met new ones. I started participating the year I went to Hawaii for spring break so I think that might have been 2006? 2008? I have been doing this challenge for a long time.



If we were having coffee, I would tell you I have had a great time this week connecting with other bloggers and teachers. I always love chatting with people through the comments. As a writer, it is exciting to see what jumps out to people and resonates with them. I learn so much from everyone.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I had a Google call with one of my writing friends which was completely fulfilling to me! We are not geographically close enough to meet in person. She helped me realize a few things right in front of me.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I am thinking about hosting a gathering surrounding the Bradbury Trio. I think this would lead to a great reading and writing discussion. Read my thoughts about it here.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I received another rejection. Sticker went in the book! I received some feedback so that made me happy.

If we were having coffee I would tell you, the time change is something I abhor. I wish we didn’t do it at all. I usually say it is jet lag without the trip. This year I have to travel by car for a sporting event for my daughter. Monday is going to be ROUGH.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I loved this chat with you today! I would love to hear something wonderful that happened this week for you. I want to hear about what or who is inspiring you!

Happy Sunday!

  1. I just finished my first half cup. I can’t seem to drink a whole cup without heating it up several times. I loved this format and may try it and will share it with my students as we explore blog writing in the coming weeks.

  3. I indulged today with cream and sugar instead of my usual skim milk. I’m a morning person, so I don’t really mind the time change. But maybe tomorrow will be another story. This week I am looking forward to some warmer weather, finally, and a trip to my daughter’s classroom as a mystery reader.

  4. We ARE having coffee together. I’m sipping mine now. I, too, abhor time change. I like your description: “Jet lag without the trip.” I also like your attitude regarding the rejection slip. Feedback is most helpful.

  5. I’m sipping my coffee, and it’s my first cup, so your comment about the Bradbury Trio confused and fascinated me. I think you meant that you WOULD be thinking about hosting a conversation because you really are doing it– I went and read your other post. I am in AWE that you are starting that up AND doing the SOL. If we were having coffee I’d want to hear A LOT more about your book stickers (and your writing life) as I also have my share of rejection notices.

    Fun slice to read!

  7. I love this format, and this morning, I am joining you with a bottle of water. Oh, my cup of coffee is coming soon, but I need to get rehydrated after a busy Saturday. I would tell you that it was another good week of teaching and writing. I would also tell you that I do enjoy this Sunday morning chat. Have a great day!

  8. I loved this so much, I had to write my own! Thank you for the inspiration, as I had no clue what to write when I sat down this morning. I’m right there with you on the time change and jet lag without the trip is an accurate description of how I will feel for the rest of the week. SIGH.

  9. This format inspired Elisabeth and me as well. You were friendly, open, chatting and all the things I would want in a coffee companion. If I were having coffee with you I would want to really listen and hear more about the Bradbury Trio & your book. I would chat about blogs we have read and enjoy your company.

  11. I love this format – and your writing style is really well-suited to it. I’m happy to hear that you got feedback with your rejection and still impressed that you are doing the Bradbury trio. I may have to stop by for coffee again soon. 🙂

  12. When I had breakfast this morning and I drank my coffee, I thought of your post from last Sunday and anticipated this one. I was not disappointed.

    Reading your blog and those of so many other teacher/writers has been inspiring to me. I wish you more of the similar inspiration you report–as well as the spirit to power through the rejection you received this week. I hope to read in a future post the good news of an acceptance. Good luck.

  13. I think this coffee share format is one of my favs this year. I’m so glad you shared it so I could be inspired. I agree about the time change! I wish it didn’t happen. This week is going to be rough.

  14. I never understood in years of teaching how one hour could impact the entire week. Kids just come in a bit off, and so do we. Or maybe they follow the lead of adults around them.

    Either way, good luck finding a rational explanation for why we even do DST. I’m luckily living on the equator where we don’t practice it, but it has its challenges for communicating with family, lol (“what time is it there, anyway?”).

    Good luck with the jet lag, I enjoyed coffee together! 😉
