That is also possible.

I am drinking a cup of mocha flavored coffee, a package of which I bought this morning when I shopped for groceries. I was going to buy regular ground coffee but I saw this instead. The package was a little smaller and a bit more expensive but I figured I was worth the treat. 

I am trying to decide if it was indeed worth it and I think that maybe it is not special enough. The coffee does taste nice but I think it does not taste special enough to repeat the experience at that expense. I do like regular ground coffee well enough and I do not really need a special flavored one unles it really makes a difference and this one does not. 

So that is another lesson learned and the next time I get coffee I will know what to choose and that is ordinary ground coffee from Douwe Egberts. That probably is what all the cafés serve and their coffee always tastes good. I suppose I will not be going to a Starbucks near me any time soon. I will bring two packages of ground coffee with me when I go to the States so I will not be deprived and go through withdrawal.

The grocery shopping was the usual good time it always is and I managed to stay right within my budget and that is because the fish was on sale. I didn't have to look at any of the other meats having decided that fish will be the only one I will eat from now on. I bought eight filets and the extra one will be for when the Exfactor eats dinner here when we go see the James Bond film. 

Besides goat cheese and goat yoghurt, I can't find amy other goat milk products at the supermarket. I am sure there must be more but I will have to try to find out where I can get them. They are a bit more expensive so I can not stock up on them the way I would with cow milk products but I do enjoy eating them and they are good for me and I do have to get my calcium in. 

I just bought two tickets for the James Bond film for Wednesday next week and printed them so we are all set. If I leave it up to the Exfactor, we will never go because he was supposed to take care of this and was very vague about it. He can pay me back the money it cost me and we will have dinner here first leisurely because the film does not start until 8:30 in the evening. I do like to solidify my plans and write them down in my agenda. 

I was walking through the living room this evening in the semi darkness and banged my knee into the edge of the coffee table because it is black and I did not see it. Right through my pants, I got a cut in my knee and it hurt and I said a bad word. My jeans are okay, there is nothing wrong with them, thank goodness. I am not normally that clumsy and I blame it on the fact that I was on my way to turn a light on. My intention was good. 

It is very easy to get caught up in the little details of life and to get bogged down in them and forget to be thrilled to pieces by the very fun things that are also constantly happening.  I have got a lot to be happy about and sometimes I forget all about it. I think that is when it is time to count my blessings. I will have to make an inventory and add them all up.  I am sure the good outweighs the bad. As a matter of fact, there is very little of the latter.

All sounds good except the injury.
