Thursday Thoughts on Coffee Mmmmmmmm

a-cup-of-coffee-399480_1280I LOVE my morning coffee!

But I have a little secret: I only started drinking coffee when I was about 25 years old. I never used to drink it because I have a sensitive stomach so I steered clear for a long time. That was until I started working in an office with a woman who drank 10 cups of coffee every day.

Yup you read that right… 10 cups!

Each morning I arrived in the office, my nose would instantly be filled with that delightful smell of fresh brewed coffee. Oh it smelled so good!! Eventually I caved in after the 5th or 6th pot was made one day. I finally joined in the coffee drinking ceremony. At first I could only get through a half a cup because I wasn’t used to drinking coffee at all and I would get the jitters. And I’m sure you know what happens to most people when they drink coffee 😉 I don’t have to go into those details.

Soon enough I had my routine: 2 cream and a whole whack of sugar!! I know it’s bad… but soooooo GOOD!!

Soon after that I bought my very first coffee pot which was so tiny you could only get about 3 cups out of it, so it was perfect for my minimal coffee consumption. Now I have a beautiful espresso maker combo with a pot on one side and a press on the other.

Then I discovered iced coffee!! Oh wowsers do I ever LOVE iced coffee. I could probably suck back an iced coffee in under a minute.

Now I am hooked. I know a lot of people think drinking coffee is really bad for you and some even try to stop drinking it. But not me… I LOVE my morning coffee 😀 And it’s full of antioxidants! I only have one cup a day and a lot of the time I don’t finish the whole thing. I’ve switched to coconut cream and organic brown cane sugar to try to avoid white sugar and dairy. I also love my coffee strong so I use the espresso setting on my coffee maker. Mmm mmm!! xox coffee-424763_1280

How do you like your coffee in the morning???

Thursday Thoughts on Procrastination and Excuses

~With a sudden move during the holiday season, it’s been difficult to keep up with my blog posts. I now have a very long list of things I must do to move out of my place, get the Christmas stuff organized for my family get together and make a smooth transition into a new home.

Seems easy enough… but now I have even more excuses not to write. Oh no!shield-417827_1280

Before I had the normal everyday excuses such as:

Oh darn the dishes should be done now so I simply can not write on my blog or my novel!” 

Now the list of excuses includes:

I must scrub my stove and fridge so they look brand new!
I have to pack and organize these clothes so I can figure out which ones to donate!
Renting a truck…I should probably do this before Christmas!
Oh wait, this bottle of wine is half full… better drink it before the move!
I have to get rid of stuff…
I can’t focus…

The list goes on and on. Talk about the ultimate procrastination station!!

This kind of feels like de sha vu only with more things. Am I just making the same old excuses? Probably.

Wait what was I talking about?

I had to take a picture of Santa to become an Instagram sensation…Santa Limonata Santa


Hang on I’ll be right back to finish this post after i do this one thing…
