What’s in the Coffee Grinds?

Last weekend’s baking outcome:

It was served to me in a tiny cup with a saucer. It was painful when I was told not to drink it all because I usually drink way more than a sip. The experience watching this cup of coffee being prepared and made up for the small size of the mug. The slow speed that it was poured into my mug at allowed lazy pillows of scented steam to waft into the air.

As I swirled the coffee sledge in the bottom of my cup I could feel anticipation building. I topped the mug with the saucer and flipped it towards me then waited for it to cool…

If we were having coffee I would ask you if you like my ghost/Halloween themed coffee introduction this week? And if we were having coffee I would share a link to a response post from my photo prompt the week before. It is a great little story and I recommend popping in for a read: Not Forgotten.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am still slowing reading my way through The First King of Shannara. I am enjoying the read but I am really going at a 1 to 2 page a night speed. It has been so busy lately, but I am happy to get even those couple pages in here and there. What are you reading?

Mi cumpeañas es el doce de Octubre de mil novecientos setenta y nueve. And as such, tengo cuarenta años (40). If we were having coffee I would tell you that last night we celebrated my “unbirthday” and it looked like this:

For any of you who might be wondering, “unbirthday” is from Alice in Wonderland.

If we were having coffee I would I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving as I head off to make our big dinner. Have a great weekend!

  1. Happy birthday! Looks like quite the celebration. And so what happened with that coffee strong enough to give someone a caffeine buzz from six paces? You were waiting for it to cool and suddenly we are in Wonderland celebrating unbirthday number 364…. I hope you have a great (birthday) weekend and a wonderful week ahead!

    1. We had a bit of fun with it. It should be a busy weekend with Thanksgiving dinner to prepare today and leftover day tomorrow, haha. Hoping the weather holds a bit too so we can get outside a bit. Hope you have a great weekend and week too!
