Happy Starbucks Day!

It’s Friday! I always treat myself to a venti Carmel Macchiato on the way to work on Fridays. Yum!

I’m looking forward to the weekend. Thee is supposed to be bad weather coming in later today, and for me bad weather means more time to stay home and read and write. I can’t think of a nicer way to pass the time time than to sit by the fire with a book and my dogs and a cozy quilt.

I’m nearing the end of a book I’m reading now and so I’ll probably be on the prowl for something new this weekend as well. It’s not that I don’t have a number of as yet unread books in my bedside table, but really one can never have too many books on hand! With the bad weather in the forecast, I’m thankful for my Sony eReader because I can buy books without ever leaving the comfort of my home.

So, I’m treating myself to Starbucks and a new book. What treats are you giving yourself this weekend?


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. It sounds absolutely lovely – sitting by the fireplace with a good book and the dogs.

    I’ll probably do the same – minus the dogs! Also get a bit of writing done, too.

  2. What a lovely way to spend a snowy day or a rainy day. I love my fireplace. My little Shih-tzu, Caesar, has learned to appreciate the warmth of it as well.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    I have already treated myself for this weekend (hopefully my book will arrive in the mail today or tomorrow). I bought “A Cup of Comfort for Writers” and can’t wait to start reading. Some planned Christmas shopping for the grandbaby (FUN!) and catching up on some much needed writing.

  3. Have you read Secret Life of Bees yet? If not, gotta put it on your list. Don’t know what my weekend holds yet, but a nap for sure.

  4. We’re supposed to get some cooler temps here today too. SO I might stay home all day and do some reading as well. We went to the Christmas play at church last night so it’s nice to be lazy today. Wish I had the dog to cuddle with!

  5. Melissa – enjoy your cozy day!
    Ang – have a wonderful weekend!
    Angie – yes I have read The Secret Life of Bees and enjoyed it immensely.
    Terri – enjoy your cozy day too!

  6. Your treat sounds perfect!
