Each day since Christmas, I’ve included seven chocolate covered espresso beans in my morning routine. This is because, as she does most years, Lisa gave me a bag for the holidays and when I have them … well … they’re yummy, you know? Like most people’s brains, mine sometimes does loops around and asks weird […]
I woke up this morning with a billion things going through my head, mostly things I’m wanting to get done, and also this weird question that I’ll probably blog about sometime (Top 5 List: people you would like to meet with over coffee). Once I’m up, I drop a few kibbles down for the cat, […]
Yes, my friends back home in Indiana, or Minnesota, or Tennessee, or Kentucky, or … yes, I’m thinking of you as I go out to pick my grapefruit for lunch in Tucson. On a more serious note … stay safe, stay warm, and remember there’s idiots out there on those roads!
