It really is the time of year when new hot drinks are being introduced. It is making me look forward to red cup season!
As well as the introduction of the Pumpkin Spice Latte this year, Starbucks has brought out a couple of other drinks including the Salted Caramel Mocha.
I treated myself to one of these yesterday and it’s okay. It is very sweet and a bit too much in grande size. I went for skimmed milk and no whipped cream, but it was extremely sweet. I also didn’t taste any salt until right at the end. I don’t know if that meant it was left at the bottom of the mug or if it sat on the top of the foam. Either way if I get it again I’ll be sure to stir it before drinking.
It has been weird being off work. I don’t feel I’ve gotten anything done, but I am definitely more relax. I enjoyed going to coffee shop and reading for a bit. I also have given myself a rest. I know exercise helps, but I also know I push myself hard and therefore giving myself a night off is a luxury and indulgence for me. I have also been doing a lot of thinking, but it’s not getting me far at the moment, so instead I’ve been watching lots of movies!
