Sunday, May 16, 2021
I know this is Sunday but picture it.... Thursday, May 13th, the year 2021, an old woman emerges from her boudoir to participate in a normal, beautiful, pastoral day. The sun is streaming through the dog nose printed windows, the crumbs on the counters from kids midnight snacks are distracting but she's on a mission to get her morning espresso made. Fresh beans ground, the rituals bring joy to the old woman. Alas, a burning smell and the machine gives up it's last foul bit of brown lifeblood. The woman, heart broken, makes strong tea with hopes this will divert the ravaging effects of caffeine withdrawal. Cup after cup of tea brings no relief. The old woman dashes to her computer to order a replacement machine, grabbing car keys flies out the door, in pursuit of dark brew. The ensuing headache and irritability must be fed! Trader Joe's and a bottle of cold brew coffee bring relief to the bitter attitude and raging headache. May 15th, the old lady sees the Amazon prime truck in the street, prayers immediately emitting from her lips.....and YES, the driver bounds up to her door with the adorable machine. That old lady is me, I immediately made dark brew and another for my son. It was rich and smooth, so satisfying.
I am not going to lie, Thursday was fraught with a whole lot of frustration and bad attitude here. I yelled at my son, I ate inappropriately and generally had a MAJOR MELTDOWN. Today I am back in the saddle riding toward, happiness and the pleasant day of health.
I absolutely love this meme.
