Weekend Coffee Share 8/20/16


If we were having coffee… well, we wouldn’t be. Not yet. It’s barely light outside. I’m dog-sitting for my daughter and her sweet Bella seems to think my wake up time should be 3:00 a.m. It’s not.

Nonetheless, I gave up at 5 a.m. and here I sit, eyes half-mast, cold brew coffee not sitting well in my empty stomach, and plotting a very early nap. Like maybe as soon as I get the dogs fed.

I could go out in search of those golden hour photo ops I wrote about yesterday, but the morning sky is hazy today, and the only thing golden I see out the window is my parched lawn. I guess it’s more of a dark straw color, but “golden” makes it sound much more appealing. And almost intentional.

The postal delivery guy accidentally stuck my neighbor’s water bill in my mail box the other day, and when I took the bill over to the neighbor I joked that I guess I could have paid it for him. His response was, “You wouldn’t want to, I’ve been watering my lawn so much this month.”

Hmmm. Did I detect an unspoken “…and so should you,” clause at the end of that remark? Nah. My dead lawn just helps make his look that much greener. I’m actually doing him a favor. Maybe he should be paying my water bill.

It’s getting light outside now. I’d better go feed the dogs. Then I can take my nap. Who cares that it’s only 6:30 in the morning? Not I.

    I like your 5 am thoughts…especially about the neighbour’s lawn, it’s exactly the stuff of early morning thoughts. LOL!

    I guess the lawn comment struck a cord in several of us. I like your lawn. I have mixed feelings on lawns in general. It’s beautiful when it’s green but there’s always a cost in terms of water usage and chemicals, probably more stuff too. Brown grass is good grass! Grow rocks, I say.

    Thanks for the coffee.
    Everyone in our household has been trained to sleep-in on weekends, or at least leave us to. UNfortunately, the neighbour’s dog is taking more work…and their owner.
    Hope you’re having a great week.
