Coffee Talk {living outside the stacks}

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.

When we were kids, we were taught not to eat just anybody’s cooking. No matter how hungry / thirsty we were or how much we wanted a piece of candy or what have you, we had to look to my mother for approval. She would either shake her head yes or nod a no and we would reply, politely, with “yes, please” or “no, thank you.” We used to think my mom was just being mean and controlling, but when we were old enough to understand, she explained that different folks do different things in their kitchens {e.g. lick spoons and reuse them, allow cats to sit on the counters, etc.}. But the one thing she never ever warned us about is someone using their breast milk to make brownies for a school bake sale. I kid you not. Some woman used her breast milk to make brownies for a bake sale and then didn’t understand why folks were angry about it. I cannot scream “Ewwww” or “What the heck” loud enough. Side note, I’m also disgusted by birthday cakes for this very reason. I do not want to eat anything that has someone’s bodily fluids in or on it. That is beyond gross.

Those of you who supported Donald Trump, are you still good with your choice? Asking for a friend.

So when The Hubs and I were shopping for a new desktop for me, I had my choice between black and white. I chose white because it fit with the light and airy feel of my office. Part of me, however, was already cringing at the thought of a cruddy looking keyboard and, sure enough, it has happened. How in the world am I supposed to get it white again? It’s driving me nuts.

I need a personal trainer. Someone to keep me accountable / motivated. Y’all, I got on the scale the other day and YIKES! Not only that, my pants and skirts are more than a little snug. I mean, I’ve been doing better with my steps and I’m eating better, but I’m not seeing any changes. If anything, the scale seems to have bumped in the wrong direction. I’m beyond discouraged.

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?
