Coffee Break

So life keeps happening… Yet again I’ve taken some weeks off from the blog, and here it is Monday morning again and I have nothing to share.

I thought I had figured out a nice schedule of topics, seemed easy enough to cup coffee once a month, visit a shop once a month, etc. But weekends are family time, and soon the blog went on the back burner again.

I thought my 15 minutes of writing every morning would eventually lead to more blog posts, but instead I spend more time writing a personal journal. Only now, as we enter a new month, am I attempting to write a short blog post during my daily writing time.

Nothing much has changed in my ability to taste coffee over the past year, at least not for the better. I blame my diet, to a certain extent, too much salt and sugar dulling the senses, but I also fight over-extraction on a daily basis. Perhaps I need to start sifting my grounds, but that’s one more step in a process I’ve tried to slim down to only what I enjoy.

I’m also lowering my total coffee consumption, shifting to tea in the afternoon, trying to limit my caffeine intake. I’m not in my 20’s anymore, and with two young children, sleep isn’t what it used to be, so I need to pay more attention to my health and fix a few things before it gets even more difficult.

So I’m on a coffee break, for now.

When time permits, I’ll share photos and stories from coffee shops we visit, but I may not drink so much black coffee for awhile. I might continue to share my thoughts and experiences with minimalism, as we still have a lot of decluttering to do around the house, but again, it’s all a matter of time.

Family comes first, and work has to fit in there somewhere, so I’ll write when I can and promise nothing more. Thanks for reading these wandering thoughts.
