#WeekendCoffeeShare: 2015, June 28 – July 04

Gonna keep this short…  I’m seriously behind on my writing for Camp NaNoWriMo.  Won’t go into details on that, you can head over to Taini Writes for more.  I did however wanted to share a quick cup of coffee for Part-Time Monster’s – Weekend Coffee Share.  I must say, I really enjoy these and Diane does a splendid job of putting it together.  Speaking of coffee…  For me I’m pretty set on 2 cups each morning.  That seems to be what my body likes.  I’ll sometimes go 3 (and there has been times where I’ve only managed to get 1 cup).  I told you before about my coffee smoothie (if you missed it you can read here).  I also made an interesting coffee-banana smoothie that wasn’t half bad.

Not really coming up with anything super exciting (or even unexciting) from this last week – that’s not to say I sat around doing nothing.  Seems the week is pretty much just a blur of the normal everyday crap that happens around here.

I really hate to run like this.  I hope you all have a super awesome week…   Like I said, WAY behind on writing goal.

An Interesting, Coffee-Banana, Smoothie

What do you do when you got some left over coffee smoothie and an over ripe banana that needs using??  Why you make an interesting smoothie, of course…

Basically, I threw in the left over coffee smooth – which consisted of iced coffee, almond roca  creamer and ice cubes – the one banana (after cutting off the bad parts), A couple Tbsp of creamy peanut butter (but you can use crunchy if desire, we just happened to have creamy on hand), a couple tsp of honey (maybe a Tbsp??), and flax seed….  Mix in Blender on blend.

It actually came out, surprisingly, pretty good.  The only thing I forgot to add (that I had planned to) was a small handful of chocolate chips.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: 2015, June 21-27

Time once again for another WeekendCoffeeShare 

For starters, can I interest any one in a Banana-Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter (maybe on the Peanut Butter) cupcake w/ chocolate & Peanut Butter swirl frosting.  I say maybe on the Peanut Butter in the cupcakes because it is yet undecided if I will add a small amount of peanut butter to the cupcakes.  As soon as we’re done with coffee, it’s back out to the store (I was already there once early this morning) to get the rest of the ingredients needed to make cupcakes.

Let’s see…..  Ohhh, I volunteered at Butterfly Boutique again.  Last week everything in the store was 50% off with  pink tagged items being 75% off.  Looking at all the merchandise we have on stock, several of us came to the conclusion that we need to have the half-off sale go throughout the entire summer.  The trailer, where we keep overstock is full of clothes that should really come in and be put on the sales floor…  The problem is that the sales floor is so full there’s no room for new stuff.  Have I mentioned that everything that is out on the sales floor is from donations??  and all the proceeds (basically whatever isn’t needed for rent & utilities) goes to Springboard Girl’s Home (for girls 13 – 18 years of age who struggle w/ alcohol & drug addictions and things like that).

Guess it’s been a pretty quiet week all-in-all.   My son came home from his second summer camp, on Saturday. but I’ll get into that over on our family blog.

Before you head over to check out out my family blog, I’d love to hear how your week was.  Hopefully it was just the right balance of excitement & relaxation to fit your needs.


Share Your World 2015: Week 25

Joining in (a bit on the late side) for Week 25 of Cee’s Share Your World challenge. 


What did you or did not like about the first apartment you ever rented?

Never had an apartment.  The first house we lived in was just under 1000 square feet on the main level.  There was also an unfinished attic and basement which (from looking at various online sites) would make the house a total of 1349 Sq Ft….  Of course the attic and basement weren’t of any use to my husband as he couldn’t get up and down the stairs too well (and now wouldn’t be able to at all).  The one thing I didn’t care for was that the kitchen was so small that if you had two people in there (especially with one being in a wheelchair) you were practically standing on top of each other to work. The other bad part was that if you had the oven door open  you couldn’t get to the back door or to the basement stairs.  And if you were outside or in basement you couldn’t get into the house.  Another thing with the kitchen was the fridge .  If you had the fridge door open you couldn’t get in and out of the kitchen to the the rest of the house.  From my husband’s point of view, getting into our bedroom was a tight fit as was the bathroom.

What kind of art is your favorite? Why?

I don’t really have a favorite type of art.  I like artwork, but couldn’t really say what kinds I like best…  Definitely landscape type art – Hillsides, country, flower, mountains, hills, etc.  Can’t say I’m a fan of abstract art as much, but won’t say I hate it either – just not my favorite.  Course if you were to ask me how I’d value a piece of artwork, I wouldn’t have the foggiest clue.  I know, when I look at something, what I do and don’t like but no idea if artwork would be considered “good” or “bad” or what it would be worth

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?

No Siblings.  Only child….  So does that make me the oldest, the middle, and the youngest all rolled into one?? ;-P.  I did have 2 stepsisters of which I was the oldest.  I was 10 years old when their mom and my dad married.  the youngest was 5 years younger than me, the oldest of them about 2 1/2 years younger.  I actually got a long better with the younger one at the time.    Haven’t seen or heard from either in years.

Complete this sentence:  I’m dreaming of a white …. (and no you can’t use Christmas as your answer)

Snow…  Ok, I know that’s skirting the border of “White Christmas”….  Haven’t seen a good snow since we moved from Oregon back in 2007.  And haven’t seen any snow at all since moving to Arizona 2 years ago.   I do recall that we got a bit of snow (not like what we’d get in Oregon) while living in Fort Worth…  I’ve got a video of my son playing in the snow… Hold on a sec and I’ll find it…  Ah, here it is

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

My son spent this last week at the second of two boy scout camps he went to this summer.  The first one, this was his third time going; The second one (which he comes home from today), it was his first time.  I’m excited to hear how it went for him.  I’m pretty sure the first thing he’ll want to do is get on his computer after being gone a whole week ;-)  He mentioned, while home last week (in the middle of 2 camps), that he’d like to “work” at one of the camps next year (I think he was referring to the camp that he’s been at three times now).  He said that he can start doing that (working there) at 14 years —  Shit,  is my son really going to be 14 here in  just over a month *gulp*, make that *GULP*
