I'm Deb, by the way. And I write Coffee With Chloe, a little blog where I can stretch my writer's wings. I don't have a particular theme for my blog, I write about whatever is in my head. Somedays I write about my classroom, sometimes about the grandkids or friends, sometimes about my time at the lake.
Hi. I'm Chloe. She writes about me a lot too. 'Cause I'm cute and funny and make her laugh a lot. I hate March. She sits at the dang computer all the time. She laughs and cries over people she doesn't even know! And I'm sitting right here being all cute and cuddly.
Yep, that's Chloe. She's our almost three-year-old Goldendoodle. (She's a Diva) Once in awhile, I let Chloe write a post. She has an unusual perspective on things---she kind of thinks she's the center of the universe. Chloe doesn't realize that writing is an outlet for me, and it doesn't always have to be about her.
We don't go for enough walks, we don't play fetch and we don't spend enough time in the yard. It's as bad as riding in the car to the lake. It's getting nice outside. I can feel spring in the air and all she wants to do is sit at the computer.
I love to write and have been writing since I was in grade school. I started because of the book Harriet, the Spy. When I started this blog two years ago, it was because I was missing writing. My journals and writer's notebooks just weren't enough. I began teaching Creative Writing in my high school about that time, so I often write with my students, trying out the different ways of writing that I show them. The blog is a way to play around with writing.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Hurry up and finish already so we can go for a walk. It's nice outside right now and I've been alone all day. I need a little Chloe and Mom time. And that dang squirrel is in our yard and I need to get ahold of him! Come On!
Well, I guess I'd better go. Hope to see you back tomorrow. Maybe I'll lock Chloe out in the yard while I write tomorrow's post.
