I haven't posted much lately.  I am keeping busy, busy at work and at home, and most recently the camera was used to photograph the car, which we hope to sell!  Probably not through the blog, so no pictures of it.  It's been/being replaced by a "gently used" Toyota Tacoma, which the bank owns...my first vehicle financing....

Anyway, I wonder if I am lagging because I am caffeine-free at the moment.  Many, many moons ago - back in 1995, I gave up coffee for Lent.  The PNW espresso - hanging out at coffee shops (not old enough to hang out at a bar) phase was a good thing to give up for Lent.  The consequence was that I didn't start drinking it again - herbal tea, apple cider, cocoa, and such made a fine substitute.  Not to mention that shortly after I was a poor college student who didn't have disposable income for fancy coffee. 

If you came to the conclusion that I gave it up for Lent again, it's actually the opposite.  I just started drinking it again.  Oh sure, I have sipped off Tom's coffee at Santa Fe Baking Co. (it smelled so good), and there were a few occasional cups with a packet of hot cocoa after a late night, and once in a while Thomas would make a French Press of it on the weekends and allow me a mug of it, but only a few in twenty years.  BUT Thomas received a Keurig for Christmas, and I have started drinking again.  I wasn't sure if it was a good thing or not, but it smelled good.  (I'll have to post later on the special beans I love.) And it looks so yummy with all that cream and sugar swirling around in it. 

I am not trying to develop a habit, generally a cup every other week.  Two weeks ago I lamented over a headache I developed in the morning and then wondered if it was because I skipped the cup o'joe.  Not sure if the body can process an every other day habit, but I noticed I am lagging again today.  It might not help that I sometimes have 16 oz of coffee on the mornings I do drink it . . . it's so good!
