If we were having coffee…
Recent ½ marathon time: 2 hours & 10 Minutes
The scent of hazelnut is prominent in the room this morning. It’s a bitter sweet smell that is punctuated with subtle woody hints. The flavor, as it washes through the mouth, is simply creamy hazelnut. It is warm and welcome. Can I offer you a cup?
A lot happened in just the span of a week, a lot of heavy stuff that coffee helps to drag the feet through. My younger son had a pretty hard time. He was slapped by a staff member at his daycare. Less than a week after that he was very sick and had to get an IV which he now refers to as a “water needle.” In between those things out male boxer died. After 11 ½ years of sharing our lives with him he has left a very large hole in our lives.
As if all of that wasn’t enough the puppy managed to eat around 4 of the leaves off of my coffee plant. For a large and clumsy beast she was very graceful and quiet while sneaking these toxic leaves from the plant. (The plant was up on a table by the way and not in an easy to reach location.) So, we had to watch her closely for a few days. She has the guts of a tiger shark though!
Anyway, as March is wrapping up April’s A-Z challenge is rolling out before us. The Space Between Bookstore is my writing topic this year.
The scent of coffee has faded from the air and the day is slowly shifting into gear. Time to retire the coffee mug and sludge forward into today…
