It’s not fair! – I love coffee – the good stuff. I got hooked on a Greek vacation. When I visited Brazil I brought back 10 kilos (while everyone else was bringing back….other stuff). Same thing with Hawaii. All those places have great coffee – strong but never acidic or bitter. When you have a GI health issue the first thing they tell you is to stay away from caffeine. That happened to me early in life. It’s just not fair that someone who treasures coffee as much as I do, is limited. I met a woman who can’t drink it at all so I am grateful that I can enjoy a modified version. By the way, decaf is not the same as the real stuff no matter what they tell you.
Flipping words – In explaining to the beloved husband that a course of action had been decided long ago, I used the expression “that boat left the station.” He corrected me with the word “dock.” I think I really wanted to use the word “train.” Do you screw up idioms? Do you care? (My stock answer to correction is “Whatever!”)
’92 was a great year – I’ve been cleaning out for weeks. I found a doozy this week. (Doozy is a word my mother loved!) It was a can of sunburn reliever spray that expired in 1992. That survived two states, three houses, divorce and Y2K. You can tell we don’t get sunburn in this house!
A visit to remember – A blogger buddy and her husband stopped by while on vacation. The funny thing about blogging is that you think you know someone just from reading their stories. Sometimes that’s true and sometimes not so much. In this case Debra from The Blessings of Animal Companions, looked like her picture and her personality (and her husband’s) were exactly what I thought they would be. They are animal people (those are the best people). We probably bored the beloved husband to tears with stories. (Oh, don’t worry. He still owes me big time from his class reunion dinner.) Animal-centric folks should visit Debra here. She blogs about her pets (lots of them), her clients (she has a pet-sitting business) and her experiences helping out with trap-neuter-return for feral cats. Great stories and wonderful pictures.
My cat update – Since Jake’s death, I now have three (yes three) cat beds that are not being used (previously fought over). Go figure…..
So how was your week?
