cappuccino on table

“What can I get you to drink this morning?”  She was tall and thin with mid-length hair pulled back tight against her head to form a small pony tail in the back.  A few strands pulled free from the bonds of the rubber band to fall across her forehead and threaten her eyes.

“Just a cappuccino please,” I replied.  “Oh, and a water.  That should do me for this morning.”  She disappeared around the corner, leaving me alone with a view of the street beyond my red cloth covered table.

The restaurant, more of a cafe really, was small with a dining room, deck, and a pastry case boasting all sorts of Italian sweets.  I gave them a good inspection upon arrival. Continue reading “Hindsight”

If we were havIMG_20160408_194710083ing 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?

If we were having coffee, tonight I would be drinking this Gevalia Cappuccino that I found the other day at the grocery.  That’s it in the pic above.  Yeah, I know that it’s not a real cappuccino, but that’s okay.  It’s really good and simple too.  Just pour some powder in the bottom of the cup, and let the Keurig do the rest.  Amazing!  You should give one a try, but if that’s not your thing, I’m sure we can hook you up with something.

So we’ve put yet another week of 2016 behind us, and are looking forward to the future ahead.  What’s that future hold?  Let’s see.

  1.  Work should be getting back to normal.  That means that I can start running and training the way I wish I could have over the past month.  The Spartan Super is coming fast, and I need to be ready for it.
  2. I’ll keep writing everyday.  So far, I’m up to somewhere north of 1000 days in a row on The Magic Spreadsheet.  That’s at least 250 words a day for over a thousand days.  I plan to keep that going.

That’s really all that’s on my list.  Oh, one other thing.  I signed this site up for the Amazon Affiliate Links program in order to monetize the site.  I don’t expect much from it, but it’s a great experiment and that’s one of the fun things about blogging.  The fun of experimenting.  So let’s see where it goes.  I promise that I won’t club you over the head with ads, and if things get annoying, they’ll stop.

With that said, I’ll let you go.  We’re going to watch “Fear The Walking Dead” and then head off to sleep.  Hope you guys have a great week!  Thanks for stopping by.  God bless!
