This morning I woke up and decided to look back on what I had written yesterday. After adding a few words, changing a few sentences I hit the ”Publish” button.
So it this journey has officially begun.
The day so far has been uneventful. Yesterday almost seemed like summer since the cold spell of early January snapped this past weekend.

Where to start?
As is said start from the beginning.
I’m Stephanie Georgina. Not a name that I have ever liked. Stef or Stevie even less. Although for a time in the 70’s when Stevie Nicks was popular, I did give Stevie some serious consideration.
One day when I was about 8, my grandfather said to me, “Hi Sunshine”. I liked being called that and I started to call myself Sunshine. Well, at least during my school days and into college. In the late 70’s Sunshine started to seem too much of an old hippie name. I shorted it Sunny. And been Sunny most of my adult life. I have recently gone back to Sunshine. Being an old hippie now seems to be what I want to be.
So please just call me Sunshine.
I have been thinking about doing a blog for awhile. I’m now nearly 60 years old, and semi-retired, living in the area where I grew up after being away for a long time. In many ways it’s familiar, but there are also a lot of new discoveries.
Recently I was sitting listening to music and getting mellow with a friend. We started talking about life, liberty and happiness. I happen to mention that I had thought about doing a blog in the past. The conversations went something like this;
“Why don’t you start”
I answered, “Because blogs are so 2000’s.”
“Maybe, but why not start one. I’ll help create it.”
My friend is much more technology literate than I am.After deciding on a theme, “The musings of an aging wannabe Flower Child” we put it together and here we are.
Why ReHeated Coffee?
Short answer – I had always thought that in ways blogs were ways of using yesterday’s coffee to tell their story. And I wanted to use yesterday’s Coffee. But that domain name was not available. Thinking more about how yesterday’s coffee is fixed, we realized that to drink it needed to be reheated.
So here we are the beginning of ReHeated Coffee.
As an overweight woman nearing 60 there are a few things I have come to accept about me and my life:
– I am plus-sized – OK, maybe a bit bigger than plus-sized;
– I have stretch marks, My tummy jiggles and My tits sag;
– I’m still interested in Sex – Just others may not be interested in having sex with me;
– I’m Bi-sexual;
– My once long dark hair is grey, although still some what long;
– I am an orphan – Both my Mom and Dad have died;
– I am a moderate liberal;
– And I love where and who I am.
Where will this blog and my musings take me?
That is a good question, one that even I don’t know for certain.
For the past few years I have been the caregiver for an elderly relative and during that time I had plenty of thoughts going through my mind that I should have put on paper (although in the 21st century I suppose it’s to put it in the cloud), but didn’t. I sometimes regret that and some of the postings here may be me recalling those times.
I’m not an artist, but I appreciate art of all types. And at times even dabble in artistic ventures. For now I’m a writer. Probably not a very good one, you the reader can judge for that yourself.
I am a fan of music of the 70’s and may look revisit the Music of the ’70’s
I am thinking I may do some poetry. Or erotic fiction.
But mostly I suppose it’ll just my thoughts.
