Coffee Shop Musings

CoffeeIn addition to being swamped lately, I think I’ve been inadvertently hiding from my blog after my last confession.  Not to mention, life hasn’t been all that exciting lately.

Although… I must say, I was pretty excited to find a tiny, thumbnail-sized piece of solid poo in Elsa’s diaper this morning.  Oh, the joys of not having to clean up a poo-splosion.  It’s the simple things in life, really.

10 Simple Enjoyments (right now, at this moment in my life, and in no particular order)

  1. Listening to a table of regulars at my favorite coffee shop, specifically a group of older men.  In some ways, I guess they remind me of my Dad and how I envision him chatting it up with his peeps.
  2. A quiet trip, by myself, in the car, listening to my 80’s hairband music at whatever volume I choose.
  3. A leisurely stroll through Target to pick up essentials, then stopping by the clearance racks to peruse possible deals.
  4. Elsa’s excited smile, first thing in the morning when I walk into the kids’ room.
  5. James’s lady-killer smirks.
  6. Almost daily chats with at least one member of my family.  Sometimes about absolutely nothing, but always filled with a bit of humor to brighten my day.
  7. Those haphazard moments when I’m inspired to try something new.
  8. Weekend golf outings with Pete.  Who would’ve known I’d be a golfer?!
  9. Snuggling up on the couch and watching a favorite show with Pete at the end of the day.
  10. Crawling into my cozy cocoon at the end of a long day for, what I hope to be, a good night’s sleep.

Coffee cup is empty, blueberry scone is resting comfortably in my belly, Fairy Poppins is taking care of the kids, I’ve got some errands to run, and the sun is peeking through the clouds.  Today is going to be a good day.  Oh, and I’m feeling a good, satifsying poo coming on.  Aaahhhhhh.
