If we were having coffee, I’d apologize for my absence of late. The bad thing is that I don’t even have a reason for it. Or even an explanation. Saying that night after night, week after week passed with opportunities to plop my but down and write, but I decided not to doesn’t seem like a reason or an explanation. I’ll say that I was in a funk and leave it at that.
Anyhoo, it’s great to be here, sipping on what I’m calling a cappuccino. The fact that it’s not a real cappuccino is almost irrelevant, as the milk is frothy, the coffee is strong, and there’s even a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Sounds like a real cappuccino doesn’t it? Sadly it’s not. It’s just a concoction that I made in that new Ninja Coffee machine I was telling you about a few weeks ago. Up until tonight, all I had brewed was regular, but good, coffee in the Ninja. Tonight, feeling a bit more adventurous, we have cappuccino knock off that works quit well. I’ll be happy to fix you one up! It’ll only take a minute.
There you go. I hope it’s good. So, what have you been up too since last we talked?
Me? Oh, I’ve ran a couple of Spartan Races and an 8K (that they misdirected the runners on so that it ended up being almost 10K) over the past few weeks. They were all fun, and things that I should have written about right here on this page, but I digress. We know that didn’t happen.
That supposed 8K was disappointing. Had the course been marked right, I would have had my best 8K race time to date. Not saying that I would have won or anything, but you know us runners are always looking for a Personal Best. Oh well, maybe next time.
You know, sitting here, pecking away at these keys, it just feels right. Like maybe I shouldn’t have been gone away so long. I know better than to say that it won’t happen again, but maybe, just maybe the next time I feel a hiatus coming on, I can think back on this, and stave it off. Or, maybe not. We’ll just have to see.
Thanks so much for coming by. Oh sure, you can absolutely take that cup with you if you promise to bring it back next week for a refill.
What’s that? Yes, good point you have there. I’ll try to be here with the coffee. Until then…
Thank you so much for stopping by. It does mean so much! Here’s to hoping you have a great week, and may God Bless You!
