coffee break

illy.jpg

It’s definitely a misnomer for me to break for coffee; I’ve been working late into the night as night stretches into morning and then back again after a few hours of sleep at 6:30 to cram it all in. Coffee fuels the madness. It accompanies me always, I have a favorite blue cup with a lid that my kids sometimes trip over (I adopted the habit of setting it on the floor by my feet rather than next to my hands by my keyboard after a certain incident last year; but I don’t want to name any names.) It’s not the coffee I need a break from, it’s the hours upon hours of editing three years worth of photographs as I launch this business formally into the Virginia Chapters.

I’m very excited about the new clients I’ve added and the prospective clients I’ve been corresponding with, and I’m anxious to show off the redesign of my website which will complement this blog — the fruits of three years worth of photographs, two weeks of editing them and one hard drive failure.

The official launch of the new site is maybe a week away. I’m not sure. Maybe 10 days. I’m taking an extra few to venture off with my family, to go sip coffee in a glass coffeecup, with a saucer, without worry of bumping the table and any of it splashing around.

  • Christine - cats I can’t do, but coffee AND Greece with a local AND my camera? Flora, you’re a girl after my own heart! 🙂

    I am half Greek, you know, my father…which might explain why I’m still drinking the same cup of coffee I poured over an hour ago?ReplyCancel

  • Flora - You need to come with me in Greece in order to really get Coffee break. It takes the average Greek between 2 to 8 hours for one cup of coffee. Google it… you’ll be amazed. Or if you prefer there’s a book on it… We are the frappé nation afte rall.ReplyCancel

  • Guy Wire - Your coffee photo in color is a real lipsmacker – not a word I use wantonly. Enjoy your extra day’s off. You’ve certainly earned them. And drink some of that kickass coffee for me.
