Coffee Log, Year 2, Day 5


Coffee: Sumatra Medium Dark, Trader Joe’s Brand

The forecast says its strolling weather. And by ‘forecast’ I mean the three families and half-dozen kids that are hanging around the apartment playground.

I took a short walk around the complex. Here’s what I saw:

Three 3-foot girls in pink puffy jackets skipping on stones in the creek-bed. Two old men – completely unrelated to each other – both wearing ball-caps and working hard at that sort-of-scowl-sort-of-smile you expect of a grandfather. One dog walking, ignoring it’s owner, and another dog upright behind a black fence watching people walk by. So many cold winter trees. It’s almost spring but they haven’t caught on. A few cars. And a 2nd floor railing that’s still strung up with Christmas lights.

Strolling weather – my favorite time of the year.

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
