The grains on my spoon are miniscule like powdery sand. The grains are a mix of tan, cream and a deep brown. I take pleasure watching the small compact particles pour slowly from the spoon to fall into the bottom of mug. The transformation in the grains once the boiling water hits them is magical. As the mug fills, the hot liquids becomes a warm tan colour with hints of frothy bubbles. I am excited for that first taste. I usually only treat myself to this instant coffee beverage mix during the Christmas season. My Maxwell House Café French vanilla is a creamy sweet coffee flavour and it was well worth the wait!
If we were having coffee I would start our conversation with happy holiday wishes! I hope it was lovely. Ours was fun and the kids were entertaining.
If we were having coffee I would share with you that I was successful in completing my 2000 piece General Store puzzle before December 24th and had it cleaned up off the table. Something about this puzzle drew my husband in and he was very active in helping me finish it. It was such a challenging puzzle that he was insistent that we leave it completed on the table for a couple days to enjoy. I have a second 2000 piece puzzle for some time in January. I was looking for a puzzle board for it but I can’t seem to find anything for that size puzzle except the roll up mat so it will go on the coffee table again.
If we were having coffee I would share a couple pictures with you of some of the last antics from Jingle Marshmallow.
If were having coffee I would also share with you that my older son had a bit of a terrifying accident a few days before Christmas. We flooded a skate rink in the backyard. The boys were out skating and trying to shoot the hockey puck around. I heard the commotion. I didn’t see it happen. Anyway, the long and short is that he managed to slice his own wrist open with his own skate which was on his foot! It was a gash that was an inch wide and about 4 to 5 inches long. Stitches required. He is doing good and healing up. I on the other hand am sure this parental experience peeled away a few years off my life. Good grief it was terrifying. Thankfully, no tendon damage or anything like that and it certainly didn’t slow him down Christmas day.
If we were having coffee I would wish you happy holidays. I will see you in 2021 for a virtual cup of coffee. 2021 will see me having a few less virtual coffees I think. My goal will be to stop in once or twice a month and I will be using this image as my feature Coffee Share image in 2021.
If we were having coffee it would be time for me to pass you the coffee pot.
