Warm Anniversary

Today one year ago I started this blog. Who would have thought that I would have the stamina? To celebrate I had intended to change my housecoat, shave my legs, update my favourites and do a post explaining why my favourites are all fabulous. But it's hard to do that with a cup of coffee in one or both hands. Maybe not so much stamina after all….
Maybe it’s a good time to reflect on some issues.
First of all, writing a weblog is fun in a strange sort of way, and it’s also very hard not to do once you have started. Sometimes, my motivation for writing here is to get something off my chest, sometimes it’s only to have a place to go crazy. The few occasions where I actually feel that having the blog is really beneficial for me is when I write about something and the writing itself helps me to find out what I really think. It’s one thing to talk to people about issues , it’s a totally different one to try to put it into decent writing in a foreign tongue. That’s why Mr Thesaurus is my best friend.
I can imagine that I will stop the writing some day in the future (but not anytime soon), it’s hard to imagine that I will stop the reading of some blogs.

OK….enough yadda yadda. Please step into my office make your comment and leave your present at my bedside table !!
Tell me what did you bring me ?

Hereby a repost of my very first post:

Coffee is warm

She opened her eyes to a dark quiet room.
Warm.... Warm...Warm...
She turned and saw the silhouette of her companion laying beside her and listened to the soft noise of his breathing and after a few moments she was able to see his chest moving slightly up and down.
Warm.... Warm...Warm...
She looked up to the ceiling and followed the moving lights and shadows that inhabited there at night. She considered warm again. Could it be? Warm… As her mother's hands…..Warm. As a summer night. Warm….. As a kiss from a child. Warm….. She placed a hand on his chest to feel his heart beating. Warm…. His skin was warm. He moved and she took her hand away, she didn't want to wake him up. Just wanted to feel... Warm. She sighed. It was probably true….. Warm…. She smiled to herself in frustration. Warm had been bothering her for the past couple of days. Warm was nice, comforting, comfortable, healing, friendly... Warm…. There was nothing else but a tranquil line from start to end. No ups and downs. No extremes. Warm was equilibrium. Warm was lucidity and reason. Warm was predictable, warm didn't have surprises. Warm……. She got up careful not to wake him up. She put on her sandals and left the room, closing the door silently behind her. She went downstairs and turned on the computer and decided to start blogging.

CnC is...Warm

Congratualations, I am leaving one of those coasters that heat up and keep your coffee warm.

I loved your first post. It illustrates so well why many of us are here. Warm is good for coffee, not so good for the skin. Hope you have found some heat.

Warm is the fresh, homemade, chocolate croissant red leaves on the bedside table next to the morning coffee before he tiptoes out of the room.

Happy Anniversary CoffeeNoCream.

I think that blog years are longer than dog years. A whole year makes you a seasoned veteran! I remember that yours was one of the very first blogs I discovered. And then you went on vacation, lol.

Happy Anniversary, my coffee drinking cyber friend.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

Hey Coffee: Happy Anniversary!!!!! Everything you wrote about the whole notion of blogging I agree with. In short, it is a way in which I can share ideas, information, and my feelings with the public...and best yet, receive feedback from those who take the time to share themselves back with me.

I am proud to have you as my blogging friend, if that's what we can be called!

Have yourself a drink of something added to your coffee on me today !

Happy Anniversary!

I brought you a roll of paper towels for all those little coffee spills, and they make passable filters for the coffee maker if you run out. I hope you never run out.

Hey Coffee....I wasn't here at the beginning of your blog, God willing I'll be here at the end. Congratulations on one year!

Mr Thesaurus is my best friend.

Since you love your thesaurus, I bring a new one. Completely updated and leather bound.

Happy Anniversary CnC! I really enjoy reading your blog and I hope to be here for your 2nd anniversary.

Now, what to leave you? How about a mug that says "Damned if I do, damned if I don't?" I think that cup might just help you with some decision making.


Come have fun! Visit my blog at Lioness_girl

One year, you are scrawling
Making us all howling
either from joy or sadness
but always reading with gladness

From Medusa to Manolo
or any other characters forming 'bolo'
About Strike, J and little espresso
Continue please, up tempo.

My present is still to linger
either MarieJo or LiseCarmel I'll bring her
another year Mrs Mug
and criticasters can go 'op me rug'
