It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Creatures of Habit

Even though we don't have to get up early every day and go to work , I still feel like Saturdays are special.
I am still reluctant to get out of bed ..
I move slower on Saturday than I do on , oh, say Wednesday.
So after a very slow start, we made up for it Big Time by walking all over the area we live in.
We were looking for a different fish market, we ended up deciding ours is best ..

We walked past the new mall which is nearing completion, the lights on the staircases are being installed, iron gates / barriers are up along the sidewalks to protect pedestrians from buses and taxis.

( Have we discussed the drivers of buses and taxis here ?
No ? Well, another day, when you are prepared for a scary story)

On the way home , on a very warm, very beautiful Spring day, we felt the urgent need for coffee and some sugary substance with perhaps chocolate added.
So we stopped in a new cafe, Croque Madame.
They need to iron a few kinks out .. new staff etc but it will be a good spot for coffee if we want something different from our old cafe.
Not Likely says my husband.
Ahhh, we are such creatures of habit, the two of us !


  1. Sometimes the tried and true is very comforting. Very funny!

  2. Como en Casa does look very enticing...but familiarity is stronger than one realizes and a very difficult force to pull away from, even if only for a little bit.
    Love the green walls though...
