Run. Dog. Cat. Cat. Me.

Everything you need to know about running and life and any other random crap I find bouncing through my mind like a ping pong ball. And always be sure your shoes are happy.

Heaven…I’m in heaven…

I’m in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
The happiness I seek…

…coffee, keeping the world safe for thousands of years.  To paraphrase Ben, and I think I have before, “coffee is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.”  And that He wants everyone in my house to survive mornings, obviously.

Trivia:  Coffee was first consumed in the 9th century, when it was discovered in the highlands of Ethiopia.

Text *Boink*

BeckyB:  ON SALE!  30% off!

Me:  I WANT!

BB:  Really?

Me:  YES!

Trivia:  Coffee was first known in Europe as Arabian Wine.

I can totally see that.  With fewer calories.  And I’ve heard that the caffeine burns a few calories.  Not as many as running, but every little bit counts.

I’m in heaven
And the cares
That hung around me
Through the week
Seem to vanish
Like a gamblers
Lucky streak

….like the cup of Donut Shop Macadamia Nut freshly brewed into my mug is quickly vanishing.  *Yum*

The dog is safe, the cat is safe, the Hubs is safe.  I love you all.   I love the world.  I love the idiot squirrels stripping branches off my trees and burying the hickory nuts in MY PLANTERS dammit.

Trivia:  The heavy tea tax imposed on the colonies in 1773, which caused the “Boston Tea Party,” resulted in America switching from tea to coffee. Drinking coffee was an expression of freedom.

I know I like to drink it freely.

I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me
Half as much…

…as perusing and giving serious consideration to Chocolate Glazed Donut and Cinnamon Roll.  Then I will go for a bike ride with the hubs this afternoon.  And I rode yesterday: 21 miles, 1:18:05.

Trivia:  In the ancient Arab world, coffee became such a staple in family life that one of the causes allowed by law for marital separation was a husband’s refusal to produce coffee for his wife.

This would never happen in my household.  Hubs is an extremely intelligent man.

I love to go out fishing
In a river, or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much…

…as watching someone else fishing on the lake while I brew another cup and curl up on the patio –

  1. I have the exact same Keurig. I use it every single day, and I love it. Rejoice and be glad!

  2. I might have to switch TV over to QVC again… Love it!! When I went on vacation in Kona, Hawaii, some years ago, I went to a coffee plantation and a coffee tasting. So much better than wine tasting. I was in heaven then! Enjoy!!

  3. I found myself singing along… Love that song…and my Keurig. 🙂

  4. I agree about the coffee-heaven connection. Ahhhh…especially when the pets stir early in the morning. My Dad (whom I trust with all things culinary and who makes what my husband calls “cowboy coffee”) gave me a surprising coffee tip lately: Sam’s Choice Sumatra coffee is one of the best ever, even better than Starbucks Sumatra (which he beats into submission as a fine powder). Guess what–he’s right! (you Keurig fans won’t know what you’re missing)

    • I’ve had a Cuisinart Grind ‘n Brew for years that makes the best. damn. coffee. ever. And I still have it. But something about fall coming and cooler weather has me loving Cinnamon Roll or Coconut Mocha in the morning right now. I do not think it makes the best plain coffee, tho. I think the plain coffee in the Keurig tastes slightly metallic. I’ll have to tell my mom about the Sumatra, tho!

      • The Sumatra was a great surprise. I’m not a great fan of WalMart, but not totally against the place either. I’m going there regularly now. I was given a great gift of a coconut coffee from Hawaii once–I think it was Tiger brand. Not for Keurig, but luscious stuff!
        About the Cuisinart…I would love to have one that ground the beans right before brewing! However, we bought one Cuisinart that sounded the most obnoxious alarm when the coffee was finished brewing. It was NOT the thing you needed when trying to be quiet and not wake the rest of the family! The company told us the only way to disarm the thing was to cut the wire. That was the last Cuisinart we ever bought…
