The smell of a chocolatey rich dark roast fills my nostrils and brings a smile to my face. I take a moment to imagine the hot bitter liquid sliding smoothly over my taste buds leaving them craving the next delicious sip. Now it is time to bring those imaginings in line with reality.
If we were having coffee I would start with an apology because I made a sad discovery after we had coffee last. I was randomly searching around my WordPress site and I came across a number of pending comments that were waiting for my approval. I am a bit dumbfounded by it to be honest because I don’t use the setting where comments need to be approved so it isn’t a spot I have ever checked nor do I get messages saying those comments are waiting. So, for those of you who left some very involved and lovely comments I apologize for my oversight!
If we were having coffee I would ask you if you even wonder what it is that compels you to write? Perhaps maybe you know? I ask because I re-read my very first blog post and that very question was where I started. If you have a minute and want to check it out, it is a fast read, you can find it: HERE
If we were having coffee I would share with you that have a new Keurig. After almost 11 years it was time. My old Keurig started doing weird things a while ago like not filling a cup and turning off on its own. I was sad about it and I didn’t want to replace it and with all the new options I felt overwhelmed thinking about it. Anyway, I am going to be creating a coffee bar as a re-finishing furniture project soon and so I used that to help me pick my new coffee maker.
If we were having coffee that would lead me to my next item for sharing. The weather is here for me to start back-up with my furniture project. I started with this chair and turned it into a piece for my home exercise space. Next is a stand that I would like to re-finish for my TV and then the coffee bar.
If we were having coffee I would end with sharing images from my youngest son’s birthday cake. My house was to hot when I was icing so I am a bit disappointed with the appearance but the flavours were a hit: banana frosting, marble cake and homemade strawberry filling.
Hope you have a great month and I will be back for a virtual coffee July 25, 2021.
