Morning Trance

coffee

You danced for me this morning

Steam rolled up from the top of my mug

twirling and twisting in the reflection of the lit up screen

I watched mesmerized, slowly passing my fingers through

the warm steam like it was fire.

I was in a peaceful trance for those

few precious moments.

Let the day be as calm as it is now.

 

 

Happy New Years!

I hope you have all made your new years resolutions, and have your bottle of bubbly waiting for the ball to drop and share a moment with someone you care about, or if you are solo tonight hug your favorite lap buddy whether it be a cat or dog. Everyone deserves a squeeze on new years. 🙂

Have a safe and happy New Years. Here’s to another great year! *Clink*

The Constant

 

The constant never changing daily routine of my gravitation towards coffee in the morning is something I will never get rid of. Unless I find a tea that tastes as good as my morning brew, but even that is a slim to none chance.

It is almost the new year and we plan on bringing the Good with and leaving the Bad behind. Start the year off right with a renewed strength in ourselves and the life that is laid out before us. We have the opportunity to grasp it with two hands and a dedicated heart taking full advantage of a full year to make some drastic changes, or let the dream hide on the shelf collecting dust and pass us by. I vote number one. What will you do?

I made a cup dedicated to this. Follow the link Coffee and check it out 🙂

Coffee and Words

Words, Coffee, Music, Dance, Laugh, Live

Each of the above has a special place in our lives and different tunes due to our emotions, feelings, environment. Each can play off of each other…enhancing, enriching and making that moment one to remember.

I have laughed over strong espresso with the ones I love.

I have cried over a plan cup of black coffee in the morning on my porch in the morning sun.

I have sang with my to go mug of coffee while dancing to music in the yard picking up leaves.

I have drug myself up the stairs to the kitchen just to get my lively hood from the coffee pot.

I have spoken sweet words of thanks to God over my Coffee as the steam hits my nose.

I clutch my cup with two hands, held it close to my chest and believed I might not stand without it.

I love life, I love laughter, and I love Coffee.

I drink way more than I should, and I do not regret it… 🙂

Snow and Coffee

It is time for Buttered Rum! Unfortunately I do not have any at this moment 😦

Remember when we were kids and it was so snowy at night that it was light out? It is fun to see it that way now outside 🙂 I love winter.

 

Stay warm, Drink good drinks, love your lover, share laughter. 🙂 Be happy

 

Is there such a thing??

~Ode to Coffee~

Coffee, oh my Coffee

is there such a thing as too much?

I jitter and I shake

My heart burns and tummy aches.

but you are still there through and through.

I love you in the morning, mid-day and late afternoon.

You make me feel happy,

as I lay awake at night.

There is no better thing than coffee,

please don’t ever leave my sight.

Hawaii | Coffee, Pre-Cup

Cool Post about Coffee from Tree to Cup. 🙂 Thank you for the post!

Free Time

I have five coffee makers to brew coffee in five different ways. There’s the drip maker, espresso machine, the ubiquitous Keurig, French press and this odd contraption that allows me to make a 24-hour cold brew. Do I need them all? Umm, nope. But when has need mattered to a coffee aficionado?

You’d think with all the coffee gadgetry I’d know every last detail about how coffee is grown and processed before its brewed and hits the cup. Not so much true until last week when I went to visit a friend in Hawaii. It’s merely a coincidence that my first trip to Kona comes right as he bought a coffee farm. Really.

The first step to learning about coffee, pre-cup, is to locate a coffee farm. Alright, that was easy. Now there’s the matter of knowing when to pick the coffee fruit, or what I learned are called cherries…
