Each of the 10 days will have a different subject to find a photo for. Today’s is ‘Coffee Shop”.

***

We don’t usually go to a coffee shop. Once in awhile we’ll get a hot chocolate from the Starbucks place in our Barnes & Noble book store, but that’s rare.

Here’s one fairly close to our house…we drive on by. Once a year we’ll go in to buy a gift card and a package of coffee for my daughter for Christmas.

My favorite and closest coffee shop is…right here at home!

I buy my coffee here:

And make my coffee how I like it here:

Join me tomorrow for the next photo challenge day which will be ‘Writing’.

Hope you enjoy my thoughts about coffee. Thanks so much for coming by.

So, what’s to say about coffee?

I like coffee a lot. I start out the morning with a hot cup of it, with the Coffeemate French Vanilla cream flavoring powder. Sometimes I do get the liquid kind. I use half and half cream sometimes, too. Yum!

In the afternoon, I’ll have another cup of coffee, and then right before bed, I’ll have another. The caffeine doesn’t bother me at all, and in fact is so relaxing, it helps me sleep good. It’s always been this way.

Funny, I’ve never had one of those specialty kinds of coffee, like latte, espresso, or any of the many other kinds of coffee. I don’t even know what all they are called. I did have one tiny sip of espresso once. Never wanted another.

I like my coffee really hot, so have to keep warming it up. I haven’t wanted to try it iced or cold, but coffee ice cream is good.

Here’s my usual coffee mugs. Well, the one with the alien is mine. I bought that when we visited Roswell NM. I also use the red mug a lot.  The one with the bat is my husband’s coffee mug. My daughter bought it for him when they visited Carlsbad Caverns NM.

The next photo is of my Keurig coffeemaker, and also my antique drip coffee pot, which makes excellent coffee. 🙂

Today’s prompt word for SOCS is ‘guess’. To join in, and also see other entries, click the above link.

Guess what? I don’t know what to write about, today.

Guess what? It is pouring down rain, at the moment. It wasn’t a few minuets ago, when I went out to feed the cats. Maybe they got a bite or two before it started raining.

Guess what? Family from out of state are here visiting.

Guess what? Whatever we find to do today, it will be done in the rain…unless it stops raining.

Guess what? I’ve already had my morning coffee, and now I’m drinking iced tea.

Guess what? I probably should go get something on besides my pjs, in case we find something to do, or somewhere to go…in the rain.

Guess what? I wish you all a lovely day! 🙂

THIS ISN’T MONDAY?

THIS ISN’T MONDAY?

Well, I thought for sure today was Monday. I was even looking up songs with Monday in the title. At some point I finally realized today is Sunday. haha

I guess that’s what happens when I get up so early and not being quite awake while I’m drinking my coffee. So, I just played some games. Here’s a photo of the reflection of the game I was playing in the coffee. (Candy Crush Jelly)  I took the photo at 5 a. m. and had already been up  since 4:15, which is my usual morning. 🙂

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday!

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – OLD & NEW

Standard

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – OLD & NEW untitled

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Old and New

***

We are to find things that are opposites, like old/new. Here I have two kinds of coffee pots. The old one is a vintage, drip style coffee pot, from the 1950s, made by the Wearever company. You heat the water, then pour it into the top part, where the basket holds the coffee grounds. The new one is the modern Keurig  Coffeemaker, which uses the K-cups type of coffee, which comes in all kinds of flavors. Either coffee maker works great. We most times use the new one, but have the old one as a back-up if needed. It heats up the water on the stove, so no electricity is needed. 🙂

Every evening, without fail, I pour water in my Keurig coffeemaker.

I also, get out my coffee cup, and put it under the spout.

I put in a little coffee pod, where it goes in the machine.

The next morning, all is ready for me to turn the coffeemaker on,

pull the handle, and out comes the hot coffee in less than a minute,

filling the cup just right. 🙂

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 25/16

***

So, I’ve been drinking all day. That’s not unusual, but I’ve drank more than usual, I think. You see, I’ve had a headache all day long. It isn’t terribly bad, but it just keeps nagging at me. My remedy for that is to drink, and drink some more…caffeine, that is.

I usually start off a day by drinking a couple cups of coffee. Right after that last sip of coffee with cream, I start in on iced tea. Then for breakfast, I usually have a small cup of milk, followed by more iced tea. I keep refilling my glass (actually plastic, but that sounds weird…I refilled my plastic…) It is one of those insulated kind, with a top and a straw that you see everywhere these days. I like them, because I have a thing about knocking a glass/plastic over, spilling it all. That’s why I like the top on there.

Now, if we go out to eat, I’ll order a coke, DP, or Pepsi. That’s about the only time I drink those. Anyway, middle of the afternoon I’ll have another couple cups of coffee, then more tea until almost bedtime. Then another coffee last thing.

But, when I have a headache, like today, I up the caffeine amount. It seems to help, most of the time. Along with that, I’ll take Tylenol or Motrin, and eat some chocolate (any kind, but candy works good). You know, more caffeine, meds, and hot, hot coffee! So, I had lots today, along with added bottles of water, to keep hydrated. It’s hot out here in TX, and we were out in the sun this morning, looking at an animal exhibit at the Science Spectrum. That was interesting (I petted a camel, llama, goat, kitten, a snake, and a skink).

So, I just finished drinking some coffee, and working on iced tea, and next up will be my late afternoon non-alcoholic beer, because, why not? I love the taste of beer, but don’t want to get the dizzy/tipsy feeling. I have that all the time anyway, with vertigo, and balance problems (and walk like I’m drunk anyway).

Well, that’s my daily drinks. 🙂
