I woke up this morning feeling like today was going to be a great day! I was going to get a jump on everything I've been putting off. Housekeeping, bills, calls to people I've been ignoring. (I am only human) I was going to get it all done.
Yet this morning I woke up to start that pot of liquid gold only to find out there was none left. This isn't entirely true. There was enough for one travel mug. For my husband's to be exact, who leaves our home to travel to his job. But since I am at home I gave up my cup of happiness to him. Aren't I wonderful? Don't be too impressed. He filled his own cup and left for work while I watched and didn't throw a tantrum.
What is it about that delicious aroma that fills the air? The rich robust flavor, the dark velvety drink that swirls into your cup and that first sip that send shivers of satisfaction from the tip of your toes to your hair follicles?
I have considered myself a coffee addict for at least 10 years. I need it to survive. My life doesn't end, but it isn't pretty!!
Growing up my friends mother had a sign that read, "Don't ask me until I've had my coffee". I am thinking about duplicating it. Seriously, if you find one, send it to me.!!
I love all kinds of coffee, dark, light, flavored, latte's, mocha's, cappuccino's there is a place for all in my addiction. I recently had the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte which I had been craving for a year. It was wonderful and the Salted Carmel Mocha kinds blew my mind.
I even have a thing for Tim Horton's Double Doubles. Until recently I have been getting a regular. But once and while I will go for that large Double Double..in the Christmas cups or Roll up the Rim, those are my favorite. In the summer, I am a huge fan of their Ice Caps. Who isn't really.
As you are probably well aware, I am in very much need of a coffee.
So on that note I am off to see what my neighbors drink and if its coffee, make new friends.
