The Coffee Bar

I’ve written quite a bit about coffee, so it seems fitting to highlight the coffee bar, it’s magic, and staying in that magic. In the post Wide Open Spaces, the coffee bar was dismantled to allow room for a work related project. That was in September and the project was complete mid October, and thenContinue reading “The Coffee Bar”

Wide Open Spaces

I dismantled my coffee bar. Didn’t see that coming did ya? Neither did I, and it all fell apart so gracefully. It’s was about a month ago when I began to feel a tug at my heart every time I walked by it, so I knew this was coming. It’s like God always gives meContinue reading “Wide Open Spaces”

The Perfect Cup

I’ve drank some sad coffee this week, and it was of my own making. One morning I made a cup of instant just to use the frother, and it was too strong. I misjudged the balance between the oat milk and grinds. I moved on to the French Press, thinking I wouldn’t get it wrong,Continue reading “The Perfect Cup”

Sunday at Noon

Some days I feel like my life is one big Zoom. It started out as part of my job, but now I love it. I purchased a monthly Zoom account and Zoom with people all over the world. The free version gives you 45 minutes, but we kept running over using a full hour. AtContinue reading “Sunday at Noon”

Life is Good

I woke up at 5:00 am. The house is really dark that time of morning. I reached over to turn on the lamp beside my bed and with one click the room was illumined. Glancing at the floor to my surprise there is a puppo curled up sound asleep. The click of the switch causedContinue reading “Life is Good”

In Responsive Mode

I may be a perfectionist. Yes, I’ll admit to it, but I’ve tried watering that down with, ‘I’m picky, or particular’. None of those words sound very complementary, but they are a part of who I am. I’ve stopped drinking coffee first thing in the morning. Make sure you read that entire sentence, because BarbContinue reading “In Responsive Mode”

To Stay Planted

My friend who I meet for coffee once a month gave me a beautiful mug. It’s a travel mug, which I didn’t have. I usually drink my coffee before leaving the house, so it’s rather liberating knowing my coffee can now travel. The box has been sitting on the coffee bar, and it’s just asContinue reading “To Stay Planted”

In An Instant

As I mentioned in a previous post, my daughter met up with a friend she doesn’t get to see very often. They met on the college campus last year, and the friend moved away to attend another campus. The best thing to come out of college, in my opinion, has been meeting this friend. TheyContinue reading “In An Instant”

Table for Two

My daughter has gone to meet a friend for coffee. They don’t get to see each other very often, because the friend moved, but she sent a text as soon as she hit town. I encouraged her to go and enjoy their time. Gave her a hug and said, “Go get filled up.” That’s whatContinue reading “Table for Two”
