Of Awesome Impact: Coffee with Noloyiso #2018BOTY

Day 14 of 25 Days of Blogmas celebrating the best moments of the year 2018 #2018BOTY

The story @Nolo_yiso shared on her blog when she nominated me for an Awesome Impact Award (oh thank you for tagging me by the way)

A guest post by Noloyiso

If you were having coffee with me – well, I don’t have coffee in my matchbox. Maybe I would go out and buy coffee, you know, in the name of hospitality. Or maybe I would let you choose a tea. Tea is my preferencemy matchbox, my rules! There would be a cheese cake – a recipe I recently tried. I also prefer an adventure of the tongue, you see.

If you were having tea with me, we would talk, my Muse, about our daily struggles. I’ve been struggling lately and cannot understand the human selfish nature. We would find some ways to cope with the world we find ourselves in. Over a cup of tea, I would ask you about your life, about what gets you excited. What gets you out of bed every morning.

If you were having tea with me, I would ask you what you think this life is for. What is the point of all the difficulties and all the people we cross paths with. I would want to know what your take is on this. I would want to see if you are living the first half of your life or the second.

If you were having tea with me, I would be constantly checking how your cup of tea was compared to a cup of coffee. I would also share my very easy cheese cake recipe, because of I can make it, anyone can!

Of Coffee With View A View and A Liebster Award

If you were having coffee with me……

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
