I’m writing at the very end of our Weekend time this week, so if we were sharing our lives over coffee, mine would be more milk than coffee in honor of Imbolc, which I’ve somewhat been celebrating all weekend long.
We’d also be watching the Super Bowl since that is also going on at the moment.

Hello Coffee Share peeps! This week, if we were sharing stories over coffee, mine would be rather bitter. I’ve developed a taste for coffee without sugar, and just a splash of heavy cream. I need to get some sugar free flavored syrups because I do like the flavors (especially hazelnut), but I’m finding that I feel better with less sugar in my diet.
Come snuggle on the couch with me, and we’ll discuss while I binge some more Ancient Aliens (It seems to be my thing right now). And if you ask nicely, I’ll even share my discount, post-Halloween candy with you.

If you’ve been keeping up with the Weekend Coffee Share posts, you know that the last few weeks of my life have all been about finding that work-life balance. Namely, recognizing that they were completely out of balance, and trying to find a way to get them back into balance.
After spending 48 hours without sunlight week before last, and then beginning last week with food poisoning because I was too lazy to go grocery shopping, I realized something had to give. But I was also aware that some things were already going better… albeit only when I stick to my plan (which I hadn’t been doing).

Good morning (or evening, or afternoon) Coffee Share Peeps! This week I have been in much higher spirits (I think) than the last time I posted. So we’re drinking coffee at the counter height dining table in the breakfast nook while I prepare for the #JustAddTea writing chat (on Twitter). Help me keep an ear out for the laundry; it has to be swapped soon and I forgot to turn on the buzzer for when it’s done.
It’s laundry day…

Over Lughnasadh, I mentioned that I’ve found a way to balance my “real life” with my “spiritual life” using a Bullet Journal. My “real life” includes all those little tasks that are boring but necessary… like chores and a job, whereas my “spiritual life” is what I used to call all the little things I’m drawn to, including my creativity and my desire to help people.
The last few years, I’ve learned that those “real life” tasks are often in the category of “executive functioning skills,” and that is one of those areas where some people on the spectrum (myself included) struggle.
So what exactly are “Executive Functioning Skills?” And how can a bullet journal help?
