virtual coffee date

It seems like we were just celebrating the New Year and here we are half way through January.  We stop for a season to celebrate and then life just moves on.  The weeks are busy and seem to fly by.  I don't take the time to write here often.  It's not that I don't want to.  Sometimes there just isn't much to say and all I could do is share pictures or a recipe with you.  

Today, I'm going to have a virtual coffee date with you. I'm going to share what's on my heart and mind.
If we were having coffee on this cold, blustery January morning, we'd sit in the living room, I'd serve one of these blueberry muffins to enjoy with that coffee.  I'll share the recipe with you this week.  I'd tell you I gave some to my mom and she almost didn't believe me that I baked them.  They are that good. 

I'm sure we'd have these three waiting at our feet for a crumb to drop, begging with their sweet, beautiful dark eyes.  

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you how happy I am that Michael will be starting a new job in a week.  No more long commute to work.  That in itself is a blessing more than words can express.

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you how I attended the funeral of Michael's uncle this past week.  The stories that were shared of Lino were a testament to the wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend that he was.  He was a man who truly lived life to it's fullest.  He leaves a legacy to all to do the same.

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd probably complain about the weather and tell you how much I long for spring. I'd also tell you that that I've been looking up flights to anywhere warm and my feet just may be in some warm sand before long.  

I'd tell you that I've finally committed to running a half-marathon and will be running the half in Niagara Falls in October.  I know it's a long ways a way, but I for one will need this amount of time to train and will likely join a running group in early summer to prepare.  

I'd thank you for stopping in and tell you your friendship means the world to me.  I'm already looking forward to our next coffee date.  Have a great Sunday.
