If we were having coffee: Lets all go inside.

Time  to  go inside? 

Welcome  dear  friends I  have  been  remiss  these last  few  weeks  but  I  have lost one of my  beloved  sisters. Unfortunately  her  funeral is  not  to be  held  for over  another  week  and  I  am finding it hard  to  get  back  to normal.

M. liked her coffee  just  as I  did, we  would often put  the  world  to  rights, argue, commiserate, or just sit  in  companionable silence in either  the  kitchen or  the lounge. I may  not  of  seen  her regularly because  she did not live  anywhere near  me but  she was always  there at  the end of  a phone or computer.   I miss her  we all miss her  she leaves a huge hole in our  lives.

If we  were having coffee:The  weather  is  getting  distinctly  wintry, fogs, rain, frost  and  cold so  lets  all go inside  and  be  comfy by  the fire. Paul  and I  can  still entertain  you  all  with tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster  do join in.


If we  were having  coffee:  I would  have to say  that I know I have not  been  posting  as  often  as I usually   but  there is  so much on my  mind  and happening in  my  life  right now. I have  been making  an  effort  to keep up  with  all  your  posts, please  forgive  me if  I  am not  commenting  as much  as I  usually  do  but  I  am still here  and  checking  you all out.

Well that’s  about  all I have to say  this  week so  lets  go  and  see  what Paul  and his  guests  are up  to. I promise  I  shall get  back  to normal  very  soon, please  just bear  with me.

    I am sorry to hear about your sister.
    Very nice of you to make an effort to keep up with all this going on. You take it easy and don’t worry about how you’re not posting and not commenting as much.
    OH my, the fire sure is comfy!

    Ah, Willow. I remember having coffee with my Mom when she was still living on her own – as soon as I’d walk in the door, that coffee pot would be started. And we’d chat about anything and everything. At some point, we ‘d order takeout dinner. I so miss Sundays with my Mom.

    My thoughts will be with you this week. Don’t worry about how long it takes to “get back to normal” – everyone grieves at his or her own pace.

    Dearest Willow, I can’t imagine your pain! I am so sorry for your loss. I am thinking of you and always hoping you are comforted. Take your time and don’t worry about anything else but feeling better! Much love and a huge hug! Lynn

    Loss seems to have touched many of us this week. I can think of nothing I’d like better than to curl up in front of your fireplace and know I could fetch my own coffee and that you’d acept me just the way I am. The world seemed unusually hard this week for many. I’m so, so sorry for the loss of your friend. I understand so completely. I have a dear friend I speak to often on a daily basis and we send numerous messages, etc. We’ve talked of the days when one of us will be no more but can’t stay on the subject long. Neither of us want to dwell on the loneliness that will ingulf us when we no longer have that earthly bond with the other.
    I’m sending heartfelt hugs your way. May you find peace and love within your heart and soul.
