Yes, it's Friday again. I went for my walk today. It was warm again and pretty nice. The only bad thing was the wind. It was blowing pretty fiercely again! I got home and then had quite a while to relax before my workouts. I did those, did my French, and then got ready to fix some lunch. I did so and then pondered if I wanted to go to Starbucks. I did want to go, but I didn't feel like going either! I ended up not going.
Later, I did run to the post office. I had two letters and considered going to Starbucks while I was out, but I didn't. If they would just bring back the cascara syrup. I miss it so much. It was my favorite thing at Starbucks ever. ;_; I still can't believe they discontinued it... again!
So, no Starbucks for me today from Starbucks, but I did have several cups of Pike Place roast at home. I don't think I mentioned that one night last week, I wanted to check out a local convenience store to see what coffees they offered. I went in and they had Cinnabon coffee. They had little cups for samples so I tried it. I had tried something similar one year when we were leaving the beach. This tasted like that did, so I got a 20oz cup and filled it up. I looked EVERYWHERE for a lid and there were none! I finally just had to put a soft drink cup lid over it until I could check out. The lady said the lids were over next to the coffee, but they were not! I got it home, somehow, and I had some Starbucks venti/grande lids. That fit so I put it on and enjoyed my coffee. The coffee was pretty tasty, but it was so awkward trying to carry it and not spill it! Sheesh!
Since I know they have other varieties, I'll go and try those on another occasion and I'll be sure to carry a lid with me just in case. :p OH! LOL Speaking of coffee, my friend and I went to Martinsville a few weeks ago. I mentioned this in a previous blog post. I mentioned that after we ate, I got us both McDonald's macchiatos. Well, I also told you that they were sort of bleh. While we were driving home, she mentioned that they needed some more milk or something.
I piped up and said, "I have creamer and honey in my purse!" She cracked up. I told her I loved coffee and always wanted to be prepared! LOL! I have the honey packets in an Altoids tin and the creamers, they are powdered ones, in a little random mint tin. I don't really use sweetener in my coffee anymore, but they are there if I need them! I even have a little straw in there as a stirrer! Yes, I love my coffee. :p If I had the right container, I'd carry some of the little creamer cups! LOL!
Anyway! Now that I've proven I'm a total nut job, I'll end this post for now. I want to play some Pocket Camp and read more on my coffee book. Mmmm, coffee!
