I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. If you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.

I’m sitting here watching 11.22.63 on Hulu and totally digging it. I’ve tried reading the book over the years but I just can’t get into it. Actually, that’s not true. I start reading it, then I put it down and forget. All of my friends {the Stephen King fans anyway}, kept telling me that I needed to read this book. As an history person, they just know I’d love it. When I’m reading it, I’m totally absorbed but life happens. I pick up other books. The Walking Dead returns. My family wants to eat. Anyway, the miniseries is engrossing. And I’m only a few minutes into the first episode.

The Hubs and I are trying to downsize. You know, reduce expenses — cut back on cable, force the kids to be a little more self sufficient, etc. We’re one of those couples who had kids before we got married and then had several more together, so we never got to do the dating and living without kids thing, so we want to do it now. Our kids are in their twenties and thirties. And, quite honestly, we’re not getting any younger, you know? And we kinda feel like it’s time. We have the camper, we want to go exploring. And we want to make some memories. We’ve been looking into selling the house too. I really want a craftsman or a bungalow style house, but I don’t see many of those here in Georgia.

Did you read that Selena Gomez’s best friend gave her a kidney? That’s intense. Would you do that? Could you do that? That’s love, ya know? Not gonna lie, I kind of envy that friendship.

Some guy went on CNN to defend 45 and did so in one of the most disgusting and sexist ways possible. I don’t know why people are shocked. If 45 can confess to assaulting women and still get elected, isn’t it only reasonable to think some of his supporters would think it’s acceptable to reduce women to their body parts as well?

Politics, y’all. This is what life has become.

Now, it’s your turn… What’s going on in your world? Anything have you scratching your head or belly laughing? Is there a book I absolutely must add to my TBR Shelf? Have you cooked or ordered anything tasty?

Cheers,
