That's why hubby had a pantry added on. It's an old farmhouse style kitchen which is next on our list of remodeling. No. Kitchen table. I want one, but hubby wants one of those stupid space wasting islands. Right now I just have to shove all the appliances over when I am making noodles, pies, or anything that requires space. It's a pain at holiday time. Its a gorgeous old brick house and we?3 been restoring/remodeling for 6 years. My dining room is beautiful, but lots left to do.

Gack! Nothing like a spoon of grounds to perk one up... Personally, I prefer a Cupid fresh ground Blue Mountain Peaberry.

Starbucks over here can't get to grips with the idea that an Americano is BLACK. It - doesn't - have - milk - in - it! I've started asking for "a black Americano" but 9 times out of 10 I still get the little jug of milk with it.

Costa are usually the same but the other day when I asked for a black Americano the lad behind the counter looked down his nose and carefully explained that "an americano IS black, madam". Oh dear, that was me firmly put in my place!

A doctor friend tells me that when she was in her last year of med school, she, and most of the other med students, would put a teaspoon of instant coffee under their tongues for a quick pick me up.

Coffee...IV...there were nights I prayed for that! Decided that the half and half probably wouldn't be good like that.

I was firmly convinced that all teachers needed a shunt so they could mainline coffee in the morning! My students knew that I was not a person to mess with enforce I had my coffee. Many mornings as I dragged into my room, the kids would say "go get another cup of coffee. We'll be good til you get back!" even now in retirement, my hubby reminds me to get enough coffee to be semi human! Hey! I'm just not a morning person!!!! ; )
