The coffee is bitter and warm. I sip slowly having chosen a table near the balcony. I have a clear view of the silky blue sky and the cotton ball clouds that are lazily drifting across that blue expanse. The sun is dazzling and I am instantly thankful for everything this morning has offered. There are small geckos and large lizards within eye sight and I enjoy watching them basking in the sun. The hum of conversation sets a lively background noise as families move through their morning routines. I sit back in my chair stretching my legs out in front of me and crossing them at the ankles. I am completely relaxed.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that skating for the boys ended this week. So, I will have 2 nights a week back where we aren’t running around like chickens without heads. I am happy about that because 5 nights a week has been a bit too much.
If we were having coffee I would have to cut it short today but not before I wished you happy holidays!
