Something I learned during my recent semester of overwork and overstress was the joy of coffee.
I've always loved the smell but didn't enjoy the taste. Or the buzz. I was one of those annoying people that when I got out of bed in the morning, I was AWAKE!
Until this semester. Sleep was at a premium and rarely restful. I found myself needing a bit more kick in the morning to get myself going. Or, more accurately - restarted.
And then, I tasted this:
Meijer's brand "Michigan Cherry" coffee. Yummy. And smells a bit like heaven.
But doesn't taste so good with this:
The peppermint helps to settle my often queasy morning stomach.
So since I am now a regular coffee drinker, I find myself in need of some cool coffee cups. I love a good stoneware mug. I have a "blue moon" mug that I picked up at a festival years ago that I've always stored pens in that I'm now re-appropriating for morning coffee. But there's also these:
A nice reminder...
While making time to bead is never in question for me, sometimes I still forget to slow down and enjoy my morning cup of coffee.
I guess I'll have to practice some more.
