I'm reminded of this video. It has some very coarse language.

Mid-morning-full-throttle-nap-attack. One mug of Colombian followed by another mug of French roast.....black of course. Should do the trick. The company supplies the coffee so it is of questionable quality but as long as it contains caffeine I'm certainly not one to complain...

I have just found out that the flavored creamers cause my blood sugar to go up. So no flavored creamers for me. :frown:

Yup, and that is why you HAVE to become a back label reader. If it ends in ....ose, you know it is some kind of sugar. Sucrose, dextrose , fructose, lactose, etc. You get the idea.

I am diabetic also. But I am able to control it without medication only because I read the back label on every thing. I have found some canned tomatoes that have sugar in them. I didn't buy them.

*creak* Hey, anyone in here? Whoa! That's a lot of dust! I was thinking I'd pop by and check out the kitchen for any good coffee and maybe find a book in the library. Looks like I need to do a quick clean up first.

*opens windows* AHHHH! Better. I'll just wipe stuff down and toss a pan of brownies in the oven. That will bring folks running. Now where is that vacuum?

Blast from the past. Haven't seen this thread is ages.

The brownies are wonderful, thanks for popping those in the oven. I dropped off a pound of Panama Boquete Finca San Sebastian that I roasted yesterday evening. Love the Caramel/butter pecan undertones in this one.

hey girl, so good to see you, stranger! sorry for the mess. i guess you were on vacation, but in august our well ran dry during the drought. there was a delay getting someone to come out and work on the pump, so we had only whatever bottled water we shlepped in from home. it got pretty sketchy after a few days, what with no running water and the toilets not working. i decided to close the place down until the well situation is resolved. it was a slow time around here anyhow, with people busy with summer projects and vacationing.... did you see, alix, i left notes both at the front and back doors 'splaining things, and left a spare key in its usual place. i didn't have time to make arrangements with addie to take buttons and dommie with her for a visit. addie's is the kitty's favorite 'home away from home' when they need temporary housing.
i scooped them up and took them home with me, just as a stop gap measure, you know? they've been tearing my place apart for the past month, staging nightly--raids? races? hunts?, chasing god-knows-what in the wee hours, and eating me out of house and home. i'm sure buttons and domino are ready to come home, too, and i am looking forward to a decent night's sleep. so good of you to tidy up around here, alix. i need to pick up a few things, but i'll be back with the kitties and help with the cleaning. are you staying for a while? we have a lot of catching up to do, we'll make some coffee, and mmm, what's that, brownies? they smell divine....
