Let me tell you about this dog… – A Weekend Coffee Share Post



If we were having coffee this weekend, I would welcome you, and tell you that I am relieved that my friend’s dog is okay. I was worried about the puppy all day yesterday because she is still so little (and cute), but she seems to be fine now. I would also use this as the major excuse, why I did not get as much work done yesterday, as I had planned to.

I would then make you a coffee in my new French Press. Never owned one before, always went for the traditional machines or the espresso machines, but I decided to try it anyway. Can you taste the difference between this one and a standard coffee machine? I am sorry I can’t. But they take away less space, so when I send my daughter off to college, she will get one of those.

We are having chocolate oatmeal cranberry cookies today (vegan). I am hungry, haven’t had much of a chance to eat, because I had to catch up on yesterday’s slacking, so excuse my manners if I shove a few extra cookies into my mouth. I hope you don’t mind. No worries, there are plenty, I made extra. The apple pie in the fridge (also vegan) is not for us, though, it is for the above-mentioned friend, who could really use a treat right now – and can’t bake worth a darn. Sorry, but being a friend means you know their strength and their weaknesses, and embrace them both.

I would tell you, that I would have three things on my agenda today that are a must:
1. Visit the blogs on my list I did not get to read yesterday
2. Write as much as content for the two holiday projects I have coming up (they are kind of secret, so I have to show you, but I can not let the cat out of the bag over the internet yet)
3. Write the outline for the script I have in my head. It isn’t a complicated script, but it was originally a story idea, that just would translate better on screen than it would in a book. Simply because it has a lot of physical action.

Once I wrote the outline, I will be able to define it better, and present you a short synopsis. Still working out all of the plot holes in my head, which are the size of a Florida sinkhole at the moment.

What are your plans for the day, the weekend? Any special projects you have in place, or something that did not go as planned, but worked  out at the end? Why not add your thoughts and plans to the linky  right here.  (Via Part Time Monster)

I hope you enjoyed your stay, and will join in again next weekend. I am always baking something – I can’t help myself – so always come hungry!

  1. I picked up a French press this summer. I use a percolator for my coffee and do notice a difference. The French Press is smoother and so deceiving – it doesn’t taste as strong so i don’t realize how much I’ve had to drink until I get jittery. I make my coffee -very- strong. Maybe i just need to skip it do espresso.

    I hope you have great weeknd. I’m glad your friend’s dog is OK.

    • I have a tendency for making strong coffee, and I was raised on it, so caffeine has no effect on me – actually tried it without coffee for two weeks without side effects, I usually drink 4 cups a day at least. As for smoother, I guess that depends on how great your filter is in the regular drip version. I find that makes a big difference, as well as the quality of the machine.
      Blessings, and have a great weekend as well.

  2. I have only ever used a French Press once and that one time I was young and uneducated in the ways of Coffee. I knew I had to plunge it down, but I didn’t realise that I was supposed to wait first and then plunge only once. I pulled the plunger back up and plunged a second time! I ruined my whole French Press of Coffee. I was sucking Coffee Grains through my teeth for the next three days. Not the most pleasant of feelings or tastes I can tell you.

  3. Hi Claudia,
    Good luck with all the projects. I’ve been working on the Proust Questionnaire in preparation for my motivational memoir. I’m only up to Question 3 but it’s been fascinating and I’ve written quite a few posts about it already. Have you look at it yourself? That’s what I’d ask you over coffee! xx Rowena

  4. I don’t drink a lot of coffee but when I do I prefer it from a cafetiere (which I think is the same as a French Press). A tea drinker at heart I can’t be bothered with the faff of using hubby’s coffee machine. Hubby a builder, who loves his coffee often gets teased for using his one cup cafetiere on the building site. Hope you’re having a great week.
