Of Coffee With View A View and A Liebster Award

If you were having coffee with me……

An orange coffee mug

If you were having coffee with me, I would be glad that you joined me. We would be sitting on a bench, enjoying the amazing view of Mutare (Zimbabwe) from The Christmas Pass.

If you were having coffee with me, we would watch the sunset, and see the city come to life as the bright city lights come on.


The coffee we would be having; lets just say; if coffee was Motor oil; then the coffee in the our cups would be High Octane Fuel for high performance vehicles, its freshly ground and I got it from a coffee plantation, watched it being roasted and ground.

According to the GPS on my phone the coffee plantation is close to some mountain over there somewhere in Mozambique looking at Zimbabwe or maybe it’s the opposite, in Zim looking at Mozambique, no one there really knows the boundaries and the are no boarders. I guess we might as well as be all boarder jumpers, I did not pack a passport but I definitely crossed boarders.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I tried to draw a picture of the scenery but I ended up drawing cars instead. For the longest of time I have been fascinated by really fast performance cars with big bright headlights, big engines and lots of space in the trunks.


Now though, I am older hopefully wiser, I have come to appreciate the nerdy smart cars, with more brain less brawn those environmentally friendly economic, they get you where you going, with a solid dependability.


If you were having coffee with me, Subtle Royalty nominated me for the  Liebester Award. Thank you very much, her blog is one of my new fave.


And these are the questions:

1. White or Black? Why?
Black, because I am just the way I like my coffee strong, hot, sweet, black and oh so sweet. And milk tastes like cow to me.

2. Coffee or tea?
Coffee because it is hard to begin a story with, IF you were having tea with me …..but my friend Sarah can begin an interesting tale over a simple cup of herbal tea.

3. Rain or Sun? Why
Rain. I like to dance in the rain, I love the smell of the damp Earth when it starts to rain, I want to scoop up the Earth and inhale deeply and eat it ….is that weird?

4. What keeps you up at night sometimes?
Watching the lightning and wondering if the flashes in the sky are not aliens taking pictures of us? The universe is too mindbogglingly big for us to be its only inhabitants.

5. Religious?
I believe in a God, looking down in love

6. Something about you that you’re still trying to wrap your head around.
Why do baby’s clothes have pockets? I mean its not like they keep cars, money or even keys.

“So what do kids have in their pocketses precious?”

7. Worst habit?

I never start doing something I can’t do well, because if it is not worth doing well, then its not worth doing at all.

8. Idealistic or Realist?
I am a perfectionist I guess that makes me idealistic. I dream grand dreams

9. Your best post on my blog. Why? (I’m a little narcissistic sometimes. 😉
This post here… because I just thought about it while sitting in a bus, a random lady started singing out loud, and I realised she is my voice crush, and I remembered the question you asked about having a crush.

10. Do you believe there is that one person out there for you? Like happily ever after and all
I am a dreamer….. my happily ever after walks and talks

The award keeps getting passed on so that readers can discover new blogs








  1. Wow man…where you are in Zimbabwe looks beautiful. I also think you brought up an important point about baby’s clothes. I mean, why do babies need pockets? The only items that are small enough to fit in those tiny pockets are probably choking hazards anyway.

    Lastly, black coffee is the best coffee. I don’t see any point in adding artificial flavor to a beverage that already tastes delicious.

  2. Oh goodness, I love coffee! I unfortunately haven’t had as much as I ought, and I’m not a complete purist, so I do have some cream and sweetener in there. One way or the other, it’s amazing stuff.

    And I just about died laughing with the picture of Gollum! That was just the perfect place to bring him up! And really, why babies have pockets is a valid question. I’m pretty sure it’s for the cuteness factor, but still. 😛

    1. Hi Natasha
      Glad you stopped by, confession I am not a purist either…sometimes I use lots of sugar and indulge myself with a healthy dollop of full cream milk….

      hahaha Gollum is priceless ☺☺
      P.S. I have seen cute adult clothes without pockets so that pretty much rules out the cuteness factor lol

      1. Haha, glad to not be the only one here who isn’t a purist. 😛

        And you are right. I don’t know. The pockets are kind of cute on babies, though. No point to them, but cute, I think. 😛

  4. I just laughed out loud in the computer lab from reading the one about babies clothes needing pockets. besides people looking at me weirdly, im going to be thinking of the designers reasons for this mind boggling fashion choice. Good read. also…you’re weird, then again. such is life.

  6. This was hilarious! I, for one, love the model cars. They sure look better than any contraption I’d draw and call a car 😀

    1. I am much better at drawing people than inanimate objects…….
      Confession I have always wanted to draw a concept futuristic car I have never seen before….. while at drawing cars why are cheap cars so ugly…. I mean seriously is it that much more expensive to draw nicer looking cars, cause the amount of metal plastic rubber and other things is more or less the same????? hmmmm
      P.S. Drawing cars is easy, try drawing a human nose gosh that is hard followed by the fingers and toes

  7. Gorgeous photos. Though I am wondering about those cars. They are metaphorical cars. ?

    Great answers. I love walking/dancing/splashing in the rain. And making up silly stories about tea. 😄 Those are tough questions…particularly #4. You’ve mentioned that before in a comment and I still don’t have an answer.


    1. hahahahahaha the cars are definitely more than they seem….more than meets the eye ^_^
      you win the prize for spotting them I shall draw you a pair of purple galoshes/wellingtons for splashing into metaphoric rain puddles ♦♦

      hahaha I guess nothing is ever clear cut this or that, a simple yes or no even white or black, sometimes you walk the fine grey line between choices.
      and sometimes you can’t stay on the fence ☺☺
