Caffeine Jitters / Enjoying the “now” in the afternoon? / Leo Tolstoy quote

morning babble / Monday 07-26-21

This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much.

Happy Monday! Today’s the day that I have the big tank move in Reading, PA. If you hear any screams – well, it could be pain / it could be joy.

I ran. #207. FYI – I run a 5k every day! It’s not just a minute and then I call it quits for the day. Again, just an FYI. 🙂

I cold-showered, but my daughter didn’t doodle in the calendar box. She was already snuggled down in her bed with her warmed up corn bag when she said that she was sorry for not doing it. Made me smile . . . I then grounded her for a week. Just kidding.

Tried using my Moka pot yesterday afternoon – actually, that part worked. It’s the Cafe Cubano that I’m still struggling with. The sugar whipping is not going so well. The whipped sugar rises to the top to form a thick, foamy layer that resembles crema. This layer, called “espuma”, is made of whipped sugar. That is so not happening right now.

But then – something happened to me that hasn’t happened in ages. I really reacted to all the caffeine and sugar. My heart went racing and I had to sit down in our house library just to get it together and calmly breathe through it all.
