Ultimate Coffee Date for October ’22

It’s that time of the month…



time to join up with Coco & Deborah
for their ultimate coffee date.

1. Over coffee… 

I’d tell you that I’m looking forward to more hiking….

Boating Sundays will change to Hiking Sundays.

Until it gets too dark, Trail Thursdays will continue.

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I have NOT been to NYC since July so I arranged for a college reunion there.

These are the friends that I spent a year in France with.

We’re going to see the exhibit on The Little Prince: Taking Flight and going out to a French restaurant.

<strong>The Little Prince: A New York Story </strong> A drawing by Saint-Exup&eacute;ry at the Morgan Library &amp; Museum.

The exhibit is at the Morgan Library (where I’ve been wanting to go after reading the book below to see the Belle da Costa Greene exhibit.)

I plan to stay overnight to do some running and sightseeing on Monday.

not sure if I’ll get to see a sunset or sunrise but I do love this pic… Thanks Cari.

3.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that after a 3 month membership to Peloton, I’ve ended it again.  I only paid for one month but I used it even less than before. That $$ is best spent elsewhere.


Nothing against Peloton. It’s me!!

I haven’t been on my stationary bike nor do I work out.  I used it a few times for outdoor runs but most runs this summer have been with other runners.

3 times in 3 months!! But actually they were all in the first month. LOL

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I’ve been crossing my fingers that my (free) gym that closed during the Pandemic would re-open.

and now the equipment has been removed 😦

I guess NOT!!!

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that it’s been two months since we got our new cat. His name is Macch (pronounced Mack) which is short for Macchiato. I didn’t name him after the coffee (although I do like caramel macchiato) but after the tuxedo kitten that I fell in love at the shelter.

Here’s an update:

    • He hid in the basement for the first 4 weeks.
    • Then he started coming out of hiding for food and playtime.

    • Now he lets me pet him but he still won’t come upstairs much and is afraid of my hubby and other cat.

    • But there has been a lot of progress and he is so darn cute (and purrs loudly.)

Happy Running! What’s new with you?  Please share.

  1. Mack is extremely cute. Gizmo was always afraid of men, but he did tolerate my husband. He was really scared of my Dad (but then again, so was Lola, my Dad could be rough).

    I don’t think I’d hang onto something I’d only used 3 times either.

    Have fun in NYC! I love The Little Prince. It’s been so long since I read it but it was a childhood favorite.


    • Macch is getting better with me. Not as cuddly as he was in the shelter.

      I’m more excited about the Belle exhibit and seeing Cari. it should be fun. And that book has such an amazing message.

  2. We are due for another NYC trip again too but I don’t see it happening until after the 1st of the year. The hubs goes for the day sometimes but I don’t tag along on the short trips. Have fun with your HS friends!

  3. Macch!!!!! I love him! Yes, you just have to give him time. Like you said he’s already made a lot of progress. It’s good you adopted him- a lot of people don’t want a shy, older cat. I’ll bet he sat in the shelter for a while. How does your other cat like him? Our cats barely tolerate each other (sigh!)
    I just read Coco’s comment, ha ha. I think Peloton is doing just fine without us! That’s such a bummer your free gym closed… yes, it doesn’t look like it’s going to re-open.

  4. I am SO envious of your upcoming NYC trip! I am not a cat person (#allergies), but little Macchiano is adorable 😉 Bummer Peloton wasn’t a great fit for you, but it’s definitely not everyone’s gig. It’s been a surprisingly great fit for me, for which I’m quite grateful.

  5. Yay for more hiking! I’m hoping to do more of that soon as well!

    I’m always up for new books to read, so I’ve added The Personal Librarian to my to-read list! :]

    Sorry to hear about your gym! I hope you’re able to find something else that works for you! Mach is super cute — hopefully he’ll open up more and more soon! ❤
