But then my heart speaks up and says these were not resolutions. These were actual things I had prayed over, asked God about, not just flipped off the top of my head so I had something to write. The coffee one almost killed me writing that, because, well, as if you didn't know, I do love my coffee!
Speaking of which, on a little bunny trail here, look what I found. Remember this that I found containing coffee? Well, check this out: Polo Double Black. Men's Cologne. (Not to be confused with Polo Black which is a whole different smell. But same company. I know. Whaaaat? went through my head too!) Ya, so what you say?! Well, let me read you the description.
Spiced fruits: fiery blend of mango and pepper that creates a tantalizing contrast in the overall introduction.
Spiced espresso; a robust burst of roasted coffee is enhanced by our signature spice, Indonesian nutmeg, providing a warm and distinctive flavor.
Spiced woods: the timeless masculine appeal of rich woods merged with the smooth spices cardamom and juniper berry.
Did you catch what was in the midnote? Espresso, roasted coffee. Who knew you could find it in places like this! Maybe if I get it for hubby, everytime I need a caffienne fix I can just go smell his neck.
Now back to our regular blogging. Yes, I was saying I've had on my heart to cut back on my coffee consumption for the sake of my health and the emotional and mental well being of my family who face the fallout when mommy is coming off the caffienne rush. I'm doing baby steps though, because, frankly, I can do without the huge headache that comes with the major cutback. So I'll let you know when and if I take it down anymore, because I know you will all just be waiting with bated breath for that info. Meanwhile, I keep looking for more wonderful stuff to tickle your coffee fancy.
Also from my little list, I gave myself a goal of 30 books to read in 2007. With Katrina's Fall into Reading Challenge, I came across so many great books and I kept a list as I saw them in your lists. So I've published those in my side bar as "Want to Reads". I'll be adding to that continuously as I find more I want to add. Then I'm going to have the list that contains what I actually did read, maybe with a rating, for my own encouragement to accomplish the goal. I've also found sometimes I want to reread a book a few years later, but can just remember the story but can't remember the name or author. So I'm hoping this list will help that. So, I accomplished a goal and made the lists. Yaa!
Now if anyone out there knows how I can actually add a running list into the sidebar without it actually coming up in your bloglines everytime I add something to it, let me in on it would you?
So, to tie in the title of my post, we have lift off on two things on the list. Whew, feeling a little better now.
