Let's Talk Java
Okay, let's talk coffee. Are you having yours right now? What color is the mug? Mine is red. As you can see in this pic.
There's been a little change up here. I dug around last week and found my old Cuisinart and it still worked. There are cold mornings when I want two cups of coffee. And though I get pretty good prices for my Keurig K cups, I just can't hardly make myself have two in one day.
The rest of the set up is the same here in the kitchen. Of course I love coffee so much I also have one on a repurposed potting bench in the dining room!
I have tried a lot of brands. For the Keurig K cups, probably my favorite is good old Folgers. I can get those pretty cheap too.
For the Cuisinart, I really like Dunkin' Donuts. I get mine already ground. I don't have a grinder. All I need is one more thing to put somewhere.
I didn't start drinking coffee until my thirties. Then I stopped for some time and took it up again about oh, ten years ago. I really like coffee when I have breakfast out. But I've only done that once since moving to Tulsa, so I'm a home coffee drinker.
I had a really great friend who's passed on now, and she use to smoke. Back in the day of course when it was popular to ask a man to light one for you. Never having been a smoker (oh, I tried some. Didn't like the taste), I asked her what she loved so much about smoking.
She told me it really wasn't the actual smoking as much as it was the ritual of it.
Well, I have a ritual of getting up, doing yoga stretching for about 20 minutes, then my shower. Then I go sit in the living room where one of my laptops is, the one I work on most, and have my cereal. With fruit if I have any. Then I get up and make myself some coffee.
Oh my, do I love the smell of that while it's brewing! I remember when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter, I couldn't go down the street that had the McDonalds on it, because the smell of coffee wafted out to the street and made me sick to my stomach. Not much got to me but coffee.
I love to work online, sip, read some emails, sip, and so on.
I take my coffee with one Splenda, a bit of half and half and some vanilla flavored coffee mate. Give her a stir and off to the living room I go. The dogs snuggle in with me and my day gets off to its coffee drinking start.
I rarely if ever drink any in the afternoon. Haven't all this year. I'm pretty much strictly a morning coffee drinker.
All right, I've prattled on enough. Your coffee probably needs topped off. Tell me about you and your coffee. And feel free to comment on the comments.
