Great Coffee Great People

As sure as the day breaks in Portland, you will find me sipping a cup of hot coffee.

On warm days, I sit on the patio with Ginny, my Goldendoodle, who wonders when we are going for her morning walk.

In the winter, we sit by the fire listening to soft music.  If it is raining, Ginny is much less interested in going for a walk.  She is a fair-weather girl!

Age is merely…

Age is merely the  number of years the world has been enjoying you!

I can’t remember where I found this little quote.

I placed it on my kitchen counter and look at it occasionally.

It makes me smile.

I like this view of aging.
