Mmmm Just a Cup

I am not in the habit of drinking coffee on a regular basis. I am heavy tea drinker :) 
The times I like to drink coffee are usually at restaurants. Its my dessert when eating out! I love enjoying my steaming cup and conversing with Benjamin. Enjoying the moment. 
And O the smell is heavenly! 
I love walking down isle at the grocery store where the fresh coffee beans are. When I was little, my sister and I would race to that part of the store to smell those freshly ground coffee beans. Its a very happy aroma a safe aroma. It reminds me of my dad. Waking up and knowing that dad was in the kitchen, because I could smell the delicious coffee brewing. 

Well, today I don't know why, but I just had to have me a cup. I pulled out our little French Coffee Press and made myself some. My brother Nathan has a very happy ritual of 3 O clock coffee. If its the weekend he makes himself some very special expresso or grand authentic coffee, locks himself in his study and pulls out some history books or his Bible. He did it as a teenager and still keeps up the practice. It makes me homesick thinking about it all! :)

All that to say I love my coffee! LOL ;)



Lisa said... is yum.:-) Although Scott is the one who totally lives on the stuff. For Father's Day I got him a Keurig single cup coffee maker. I hope it was a good purchase.;-)
