Coffee Shops Again :)

Slowly things are improving and I am venturing out a little after a year of being isolated most of the week. Yesterday I went to one of my favorite coffee shops and I brought something with me.

I printed out the first ten pages of the book I am writing based on my short story Jessica’s Encounters at the Harbor Coffee Shop. I am doing a fine tooth combed edit. I plan to go to the coffee shop again today with the next twenty pages to edit.

The coffee shop I went to is locally owned. I am not a Starbucks guy. I prefer to support locally owned businesses. The one I went to has a large blackboard that someone changes the art design periodically using chalk. The manager is the one who gave me a set of corny jokes a few months ago.

My hope is to finish the final edit of my book in a few weeks. My plan is to donate money from each sale to organizations that fight Human Trafficking like Love Justice. Spring break for my morning class starts this coming Saturday, so I should have plenty of time to get it done.

So my day today will consist of watching church service online, and spending some time at the coffee shop editing. The coffee shop has few people whenever I come, so social distancing is easier. I plan to return to church in person after my second dose of the vaccine.

One fun little realization hit me after my first dose of the vaccine. For one year, I have been waking up whenever I woke up on Sundays with no alarm clock. If I slept too late, I could still watch the worship service on YouTube. My second dose will be in four weeks and then two weeks after that it will okay to be more public. So six weeks from today I will use my alarm clock on a Sunday morning for the first time sine March 2020, I look forward to being there in person, but not to an alarm clock. ๐Ÿ™‚

What is your Sunday going to be?

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. It looks like everything is slowly going back to normal for you. Praise God.
    My Sunday is over and I did all I planned to do, Church in the morning, and Church in the afternoon. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Have a glorious Sunday.

      1. Yes, Iโ€™m good!! McKenzie turned 13 yesterday and I wanted to hope on blogger chat but had pizza and cake balls to make before the party started at 11:30…so I missed blogger chat BUT the good news is that I didnโ€™t burn food!!!! Whoo hoo!!!

        How are you? Iโ€™m sooooooo excited youโ€™ve been able to hit up the coffee shop, and I agree the home owned ones are fantastic to support!

  2. Good to see you getting back out there! Being isolated is no fun and definitely not normal.

    Iโ€™m going to watch church online and go pick up Sunday lunch with my daughters to bring home. My oldest daughter spends the night on Saturdays and is with me on Sundays. ๐Ÿ˜Š I usually pick up lunch for my parents as well and go see my father for a few minutes, but he is beginning to venture out to have service on the last Sunday of the month. He misses his members and I can understand that. On Sundays, I like get a car wash, go for a walk, relax a little, work on my planner, meal plan, get my schedule and everything lined up for the week, finish up any paperwork I didnโ€™t get to yet for work, go through my emails, straighten up my house, go through my stack of papers/mail, and make a clean slate.

    I also love listen to praise and worship in the background and lots of preaching while Iโ€™m doing stuff and making dinner. I can never get enough of praise and worship or good preaching. I love Sundays. ๐Ÿ’• Iโ€™m hoping to go back to church soon. I miss worshiping in person.

    Have a great Sunday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The atmosphere at the coffee shop fuels your editing time. I am still attending online church after all of these months. My wife and I will be navigating the vaccination process in the coming weeks.
