Coffee-Preferences

Since the lockdown began around year and a half ago (how time flies!), I’ve taken up an interest in coffee.

Lord, don’t you care!

Earlier this week I was struggling to do my workout. I just did not want to do it. So instead I spent a long time thinking about writing up a new workout plan instead. Perhaps I needed to go for another P90x run through…then I thought about how I’d need a new pull up bar…so…
