Ultimate Coffee Date – May

Hello beautifuls! I am teaming up for another coffee date with Deborah, Coco and Lynda.  Thank you for having coffee or tea with me while we chat and catch up.


If we were having coffee… I would tell you about our weekly visits with Dan’s grandma.  She lives in FL most of time but has been in PA with her one son since late autumn 2015.  Even though they are “close” is was not close enough to see her often.  She is currently floating between rehab facilities within an hour from our home healing from a broken shoulder she suffered in a fall.  It’s unfortunate that this is how we get to see her.  But we are making it a priority to visit 1-2 times a week.  She just got the news that she is healed and can go home real soon. We would like her to stay in PA but she is home sick for FL.   At her age, 96, we just want her to be happy living out the rest of her life where she will be comfortable. She still has a sharp mind and we will miss her stories when she does get to go home. We will just have to make a trip down to visit her someday.

If we were having coffee… I would tell you I am starting to have food issues ~ Again. I am not sure if it is sugars or gluten. I plan on doing a total detox next week including alcohol. I am hoping the detox will do a few things: Help me feel better, find the trigger foods that are causing the major bloating/stomach pain  and jump start some weight loss. I see my doctor in two weeks and so I hope we can figure this out.

If we were having coffee… I would tell you that I am glad it is May but frustrated with all the rain and cold temps.  Ok, the cold temps.  The constant rain and lack of sun I can deal with.  But come on mother nature! It’s May!  Can we have some days that get above 65?  My feet are rejecting my shoes and are begging to be barefoot…

If we were having coffee… I would tell you that I am happy with my yoga practice right now.  I am taking a step back and really focusing on my breath and movement.  I am not worrying about progress.  The past two weeks I have really taken things back to basics so to speak and have been loving every minute on my mat.

If we were having coffee… I would wish you a very happy Mother’s Day.  I will be having dinner but I am not sure of the plans yet.  I am leaving it all up to my MIL and sister. Whatever they want is cool with me.  Just tell me when and where!


If we were having coffee… I would tell you my job is heading into busy season.  So, if I am suddenly silent, you know why.  Life is good but this time of year does not leave much leisure time for posting, reading or commenting.  You’ll see me around though.  I can’t stay away too long!

If were were having coffee, what would you tell me

  1. I hope you’ll figure out your food issues! How awful that you have to go through this, I’m so sorry. Stomach pain is the worst, closely followed by bloating 😦
    But I’m loving that you’re loving your yoga practice! I’m really enjoying Kino’s #MayIBeginYoga2016 challenge, it’s awesome to go back to basics! There is so much more to basic postures like Downward Facing Dog or Warrior 1 than meets the eye.
    Have a very happy Mother’s Day!

    • I am really looking forward to this doctor appointment. It’s with a new doc so I hope she is patient and ready for my research and lists – ha! I never go on a regular basis which is my own fault. Should be interesting!
      I decided with yoga that I needed this step back. I was putting unrealistic goals in my head and got frustrated with myself. I got into yoga because of wanting to do crow and firefly. But it turns out that I loath arm balances! And that’s OK! I am still a yogi. Just like you can still be a “runner” and never register for a race.

  2. It’s so great that you’ve been visiting your grand-mother-in-law (?). I’m sure she appreciates the visits! ! And how awesome that she is otherwise doing so well at 96! I haven’t been to yoga for a few weeks and I am missing it! Thanks for joining the link up!

    • Oh yes! Grandma is a great story teller. She had a very interesting childhood. I am using this time to pull out new stories. We will miss her when she goes home.
      Thanks for hosting this link up!
