i'll stick with it, thankyouverymuch.

Caleb: "You look depressed. Are you?"
Me: "No...I'm just letting this coconut stuff settle. I ate too much." Anna made coconut millet for breakfast. It's...different. Good, but different.
Caleb: "No, but you look really....depressed. You haven't had your coffee yet, have you?"
[yes, i have a scarf on. weird. and yes, i have a thing for photobooth-like photos. ;)] 
Me: ""
End scene.
What does that tell you, besides the fact that I hadn't yet brewed any lovely dark roast to brighten my day....well, I was tired. Reading until midnight and sleeping through your alarm doesn't do you any favors. I'm trying to kick the habit.
. . . After that morning scene, I happened upon this article. About coffee, obviously. Well, more about caffeine.
No joke, I didn't search for it or anything. It just......was there.
So....point is??? I'll stick with it.
Some people who've been addicted for a while, say they're in it more for the taste than the caffeine now anyways.
I'd have to say the same.

And this is what I feel when I think about Spring showing up....
By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. 
The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, 
the trees a deeper green. 
The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.
[Thomas Merton]

I'm off to work on that John Bible study......I swear I haven't done a single page since the beginning of December. That blasted month that seemed so busy...... Aaaaaand I'm finally getting around to doing my laundry. Running out of all sorts of necessaries.....Yay for clean clothes.
Have a lovely Wednesday!

Do you ever write a post without having a cup of coffee in hand? ;-)
