Things I miss badly

In no order of importance

1. coffee-I quit coffee for the summer. I can't drink hot drinks when it's hotdamn! out outside. I miss the ritual of it. Usually around 10am all my morning stuff is done and I head out to the patio with my cup, a book or newspaper to sit in the sun and ignore the telephone. If it's too cold I sit by the eastern most window.

2. bikeriding-Again, the heat, mygawd the heat! I'm not a morning person so waking up early to avoid the 90plus heat is totally out of the question. I would only get out of bed before 8:00 for two things: Peanut asking to go out(which never happens because he's not a morning pup either) or someone's paying me to get up. Even then I'm not fully functional until at least 9:30 and there's a 70% chance of bitchiness until 10:00 coffee time. I'll try to go out tomorrow though, I'm dying to look for shark teeth. I never used to complain about the heat and actually, I'm not now. I still rather enjoy being hot but I can't tolerate as much as I used to. Ever since my thyroid was removed I have no temperature control and being too much of one or the other makes me feel nauseas.

3. Cap'n Crunch cereal with Crunchberries-OK. I know they still make it, but the Crunchberries aren't red. They have blue and I think green ones and it tastes awful. In this case, change was bad.

4. Hawaii-I'm not even going to go into why. It should just be self explanatory. And my question is, does Hawaii miss me? Nope.

5. Eating whatever the hell I felt like at whatever the hell time I felt like eating it. I found a place that makes Oreo cookie ice cream milkshakes even better than Dairy Queen's Oreo cookie blizzard and dammit I could order a large one every day for the rest of my life.

6. This baby.



I didn't buy that outfit. Honest...

I am a total sucker for Peanut Butter Captain Crunch, and about once every 3 or 4 years I let myself have some!

Yeah. That one's good too. I really liked the red crunchberries....

Jamoca Almond Fudge here.. and I haven't had it for a very long time. My thighs thank me but I still have an occasional craving.


Peace,

Drink cold coffee. I know we've had this discussion before, but ritual is important. Or you could drink something like chocolate milk. (My coffee is mostly chocolate soy milk anyway so it's kinda the same thing for me.)

I tried cold coffee, I didn't like it. I do sweet tea or cold chocolate milk instead but not everyday like in the winter. Ritual is important-good point.

I miss being able to eat whatever I want whenever I want too - mine is an age thing I think - the food tends to STICK to me now.

Your nephew is gorgeous. No wonder you miss him.

I can't leave without coffee! Not even the thought of not having it is like killing me.. :P

That’s a wonderful list—and I understand every item on it.

Iced coffee. I actually like it better than hot.

Hawaii - I was only on Kauai for a week (my one and only time in Hawaii) and I cried like a baby when I left. It is THAT wonderful.

Eating anything I want - the list of what I can't/shouldn't eat grows longer daily. I think by the time I am 80, I will be down to plain non-fat yogurt and oatmeal with extra wheat bran.

Ohh, what a cutie he is. And Auntie Sweet Pea is pretty cute, too.

I miss Hawaii, too.

I hope it cools off enough for you to ride your bike soon.

I miss being able to live on junk food. Face it- it's delicious.
As much as I love veggies, fruit and fish, I would (maybe, for the right buyer) sell my soul to be able to eat whatever I feel like and not look like a whale.
