Coffee And Links July 16th: Time Well Wasted!

© Holly DeWolf- Coffee Mug Doodles

It's hot, like Krakatoa kind of hot! My coffee mug doodle was definitely inspired by the stifling weather we have been having. Actually my mug doodle was a toss up between a hot steamy theme and silly SharkNado spoof. I may still do that one. Stay tuned! 

Question- Do you find it hard to work/concentrate when it's really hot out? Do you take frequent breaks? Go to the beach? Nap frequently or do you love the heat waves? 

Let's get this post rolling! Since we are pleasantly distracted having coffee, how about some humour? Comedians getting coffee is fitting I think!
