In keeping with my idea to post something of a positive nature, that involves simple things that occur in our daily routine, I am adopting "Frivolous Friday" as a header for a weekly blog. These posts are not earth shattering events nor are they of the inspirational variety. Instead , to quote a current catch phrase, "it is what it is". If there are such events in your life I would be happy to learn of them and with your permission share them on this site.
The topic of this weeks blog is COFFEE. I need to make you aware that there probably are few people in this world that hate getting out of bed every morning as much as I do. I need all the incentive I can get to drag my sorry self to a standing position!! The aforesaid coffee, is just the trick needed to affect this transformation! My wonderful husband, who, incidentally arose between 0400 and 0500 everyday for 39 years, does not have my "condition". He is the brewer of early morning coffee, if for no other reason than to have company while drinking his morning beverage of choice.
Now, it is necessary to say that the type of coffee is , of course, a personal preference, but the basic java does the trick for me if it is percolated in our ancient electric coffee maker.There are many additives, cream, sugar, milk , honey or any combination that pleases you. I have enjoyed many delicious flavored coffees that are particularly enjoyed with the company of friends and/or family. There is something to be said for just lifting the lid of the large can and smelling the unadulterated ground coffee beans! Mmm, take a deep smell..... isn't that lovely??
One other fact I must mention, though, is that I just drink coffee ( at least on a regular basis) until 11:00h. After that it is tea..... but I digress and that will be a blog for another day, perhaps!
