#WeekendCoffeeShare Labor Day Edition

If we were having coffee this weekend I would invite you to relax on this cloudy day with a long glass of iced tea. I am drinking white blueberry now because it is refreshing. The news cycle is anything but refreshing, so I hope you have some personal stories of good cheer. My own good news is that I will be working my regular shift processing and trimming weed on Labor Day. I love my job and feel very lucky to be allowed a lot of flexibility with my schedule. I hope I will not need to call on that flexibility to serve on a grand jury for up to six months, two days a week. I could work around it, but I sincerely do NOT want to do it.  I don’t think I can be impartial.

I must report to the court on Wednesday morning to convince them I am not the person they want. The process involves hearing testimony from cops to decide if there is probable cause to indite for felonies. I have the absolute worst relationship with the TPD and do not believe cops because of the direct experience we have had in our neighborhood. I do not fear police brutality, but am totally afraid of police mendacity, which I think takes place all the time at all levels of authority. I just don’t trust them to have the public’s best interest at heart.

My writing is still sluggish in terms of productivity and on the dark side.  I wrote a poem about piracy this week that I continue to examine myself to figure out the deeper meaning.  I wrote about places I have been in the past, but changed the century.  I think I need to try this device on longer pieces.  I did a tea review because I am truly loving the white blueberry.  I started telling true stories on Facebook live at my desk.  I bought a piece of software called ecamm live that enhances the experience.  For instance, you can create a scheduled livestream and notify your peeps when it will be live.  I plan to do a few each week in a regular time slot.  I have not fully examined or used all the cool features of the software. I have only done two stories, but am compiling ideas for the future.  There is a Skype feature to do interviews.  I think it will be a fun new tool to use.

Halloween will be extra fun this year because my car is “volcanic orange” with black details.  When the weather cools down I have a large wardrobe that matches my car.  I am still working diligently on trimming down my possessions in order to sell my lot with a barn full of extra junk in storage.  I have made good progress in the garage, and some in the office. I have tossed an unbelievable amount of old and useless paperwork, some of which belonged to my long dead parents.  There will be more discovery of my ridiculous hoarding when I excavate the barn, I am sure. The task of tidying is not so difficult if taken a little at a time.  The process of discarding useless stuff is rewarding as well as revealing. I just need to remain diligent until it is all gone.

Can I offer you another glass of iced tea?  Tell me how your muse is treating you these days.  I sincerely hope none of the coffee sharers has been hit by Harvey. It is good to know Diana is dry enough in New Orleans to host the party this week.  Join us on the weekends by reading, commenting, or submitting your own coffee share post.  Thank you for stopping by this week.

wow. Those are great plants. Where did you find the ecamm live? What webcam are you using? I would love to have a barn. I would love to turn it into a space for working out or turn it into a something else. I love hearing about your plans!

I hope you manage to get out of the grand jury if that is what you really want. However, I would advise that you not go in attempting to be eliminated. They can see through it all. Just answer their questions honestly. I hope it works for you.

Corina, I can be totally honest and be rejected for grand jury. I do not plan to tell any untruths at all.
