{Virtual Coffee}

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

It's Tuesday.
Time for a (nother) cup of coffee.
So go grab a cup and join me for Virtual Coffee this morning  afternoon.
And if we were really meeting for coffee this morning I would tell you...

*that this morning called for a trip to Starbucks since we had to pass right by it to get to Target anyway. Instead of my usual I got a Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte. Hmmm...I think I'll stick with my regular mocha next time. Starbucks is just too expensive for me to be test-driving a new flavor and while it was okay it wasn't what I was looking for.

* that after Target & coffee for me and petite vanilla bean scones & milk for my little partner, we met up with my sister, went to the park, ate lunch and made a quick trip to Pier 1. It was a good morning.

* today was Day #3 of Kindergarten and so far it is going well. I have volunteered to help with dismissal in the afternoon for the first two weeks so I have been around checking things out. I'm glad to be able to see a little of what they are doing in class,  how Wyatt is doing and I have learned that I really like his teacher. A lot. So far, so good.

* i saw Eat Pray Love over the weekend. I liked it. A lot. I liked the book a lot too but they were very different, as expected. I had already kind of tried to separate the book and movie in my mind and tried not to even compare them at all. It pretty much worked. And I have two words for you: 

*I intended, I said intended, to add a link-up thingy on here so that if anyone else wants to link up to
Virtual Coffee on their blogs they can. I think it would be a fun way to visit other blogs and just have coffee all week, or all day long at different places. The only reason I have hesitated to do it before (besides figuring out the linky-thing which really is the main reason!) is that I think it would be kinda pathetic if the linky-thing sat there empty, not linked-up at all. Haha.

* that the rest of the week the temps here are supposed to be in the low 80's. LOW 80's! I am so excited and am looking forward to opening all the windows and  turning the a/c off tonight. Wooot!

Well, that's it for me today.
What about you?
Please, do tell.
I'm listening.


  1. Beautiful pictures, I especially like the one of your daughter looking up in the tree. I enjoy your Virtual Coffee posts, gives the reader (me) a look inside your days, and they all sounds fascinating.

  2. i love that you did a linky! i'll link up later i the week if it's still open.

    so glad to hear that you like his teacher and that you guys had a good day. i feel the same way about starbucks. i stick with a skinny 2 pump vanilla latte every time, except when pumpkin spice lattes and peppermint lattes come out for the holidays.

    if we were meeting for coffee i'd tell you that i finished fixing up my chairs and now i feel like taking a long nap. i'd also tell you that i'm crazy jealous that it's going to be in the 80's where you live. around here we are in a heat advisory. still.

  3. You sound good, Amy! And your day sounded great! I totally wish we had a Starbucks...well, we do...but it's on campus and not conveniently located. Did I tell you this before...how I'd be this crazy mom who drug all her kiddos out, walked a mile, juggled them all in and out of Starbucks...all for a stinkin' five dollar latte! But don't think that I haven't though about it!

    Oh...and I would love to link up! Will it be up all week?

  4. Officially linked!! Although, I used my name instead of my blog name...oops. Sorry.

    Thank you for sharing virtual coffee! Great idea.

  5. Oooh! I'll link up tomorrow if you'll keep it open! Love it!
    (and man... I so needed a Starbucks today...)

  6. That coffee does sound nice, but I am usually disappointed when I branch out at Starbucks. I always head back to my Vanilla Latte!

    And - you did add a linky thing! What fun. I may try to link in when I am having my next cup of Jo! Tomorrowish :D

  7. Oh my word, that's a sweet coincidence that the pics I took today were totally coffee...
    Well, it kinda IS, considering my camera is misplaced at the moment! Heh heh.
    Thank GOD for Mom's nice Canon.... :)
    Aw, so happy Kindergarten is going well! That's exciting, dear. :)
    Um, yeah. The cinnamon drink doesn't sound all that hot. I kind of stick to basics...I'm slightly a creature of habit. I just might link up! Prayerfully will pack some thoughtful time in here before midnight. LOL. It's 9:22pm.

    Oh, and the vanilla bean scones sound amazing.
    And the pic of her climbing the tree in her dress?? Adorable!

  8. I gotta have coffee and go today...I'm in the trenches of kindergarten.

    I'd love your help at dismissal. Ours has been *insane*. One of my little ones got tired of waiting for her ride and decided to sneak off. She went back to my room "to play". Nice.

    I had a heart attack.

    I'm glad your little guy is adjusting well. After the first week or so it becomes old hat. The routine sets in and the jitters are gone.

    I want to see EPL...but I'll wait for DVD. And yes, Javier is *smokin'*.

  9. How I wish we had a Starbucks nearby! I do have a lovely husband who makes coffee with an Italian coffee machine which makes up for it! love reading your coffee posts :)

  10. New follower, for I am a lover of coffee & chit chat any day

    I concur, starbucks is far too expensive to TRY all different flavors. I'm a carmel macchiato girl myself.

    Also... Javier- Mmmmmm!

    I look forward to reading more!

  11. this is great! i love your idea... wish i had something to link up... i'll be back next week!

  12. I'm a day late and a dollar short, but I love this idea!!!!! :) I'll be joining you for coffee on Tuesdays now!

  13. Thanks for this fun link up. Looking forward to more "coffee" with you soon!

  14. how fun. I'm hoping to join you for coffee as well next week. I love coffee and coffee talk.

  15. Yeah -- kindergarten is good! My kids need to get back to school. Late nights, late wake-ups -- yes, we're ready for a change. And I'm sleeping like a log with this cool weather. Heat makes me cranky.

  16. I linked up! I'm excited:) Sweet---it's really cool to meet the ladies like this, ya know?

  17. I saw Eat, Pray, Love too. Really liked it. Made me want to travel and take pictures. The scenery alone was worth the ticket price for me. :)


leave me a comment...you know you wanna.
