A sip every now and then will most definitely keep you warm, awake , Chilled,sane among other sound attributes not to mention the quickest way to do away with those Continue reading “Cold &Caffeinated flashbacks”
With this rain and some of us have not marked ourselves safe for the rains happening in Southern Kenya! Where again is Southern Kenya? Any way I will do that when Ndakaini dam gets full or at least the task force on the same gives its report when the rains are not yet over because if it does so after the rain season is over what will be the use of their report?
It is raining. I am stuck in the office. Yet again I forgot nowadays it always rains every evening , I wonder who should get the blame for my forgetting,I guess my middle name should take the blame, as for ‘ME’ it wasn’t me!
The attitude that I am trying to pick of late is “no fretting…”
Do not get it twisted though, I have always been a ‘no fret’ kind of person save for two things ;
- A constant stare-I do not like to feel people eyes on me…(working on it!)
- Slow traffic (how can I deal?)
The other day an Ex- friend of mine (we have down graded from friends to being acquaintances) told me they will be applying ‘my attitude’ on stuff!
While I am working on the above two issues, my general attitude is “Why fret while you can be ‘easy like Sunday morning’ and let the universe take care of its own? In any case the sun must rise tomorrow morning and still set as it usually does in the evening.”
…and in the spirit of coffee,
Coffee, fret ’em dark circles,a rub a time
Coffee, fret ’em weird wrinkles,a rub a time
Coffee, fret ’em damn nerves,a sip a time
No fret ,’em odds favor us,a chill a time
Above all our creator is in charge. No fretting.
Had it not been that someone was picking her up at the bus stage she would have alighted in the middle of the traffic and walked the remaining distance. More so she did not know her destination so all she could do was practise a little patience in the more often than not standstill traffic occasionally counting the number of cars on the other lanes.

The coffee expo was held at Dedan KImathi University (Kamukunji grounds) in Nyeri county and was sponsored by Fair-trade Africa. It all went down on the 23rd and 24th of November 2017.
Among the various stake holders in the coffee sector present was the Alliance of Women in Coffee (AWIC), who had a stand where they were showcasing their work . Their stand had a range of items on display like several blends of coffee, AWIC branded T-shirts , AWIC branded Shirts and sisal bags which could not have come at a better time since the ban of plastic bags recently.

Jack stretches out his feet on the coach and places them on a stool that has on it his phone and a glass half full of juice. Under the table, folded twice in a rather awkward way is a newspaper and by the look of things the reader had not found much fascinating in it or maybe the lazy Sunday effect had taken charge, judging in the manner in which it had been carelessly shoved under the table.
