I’m in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
The happiness I seek…
…coffee, keeping the world safe for thousands of years. To paraphrase Ben, and I think I have before, “coffee is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.” And that He wants everyone in my house to survive mornings, obviously.
Trivia: Coffee was first consumed in the 9th century, when it was discovered in the highlands of Ethiopia.
BeckyB: ON SALE! 30% off!
Me: I WANT!
Trivia: Coffee was first known in Europe as Arabian Wine.
I can totally see that. With fewer calories. And I’ve heard that the caffeine burns a few calories. Not as many as running, but every little bit counts.
I’m in heaven
And the cares
That hung around me
Through the week
Seem to vanish
Like a gamblers
….like the cup of Donut Shop Macadamia Nut freshly brewed into my mug is quickly vanishing. *Yum*
The dog is safe, the cat is safe, the Hubs is safe. I love you all. I love the world. I love the idiot squirrels stripping branches off my trees and burying the hickory nuts in MY PLANTERS dammit.
Trivia: The heavy tea tax imposed on the colonies in 1773, which caused the “Boston Tea Party,” resulted in America switching from tea to coffee. Drinking coffee was an expression of freedom.
I know I like to drink it freely.
I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me
Half as much…
…as perusing greenmountaincoffee.com and giving serious consideration to Chocolate Glazed Donut and Cinnamon Roll. Then I will go for a bike ride with the hubs this afternoon. And I rode yesterday: 21 miles, 1:18:05.
Trivia: In the ancient Arab world, coffee became such a staple in family life that one of the causes allowed by law for marital separation was a husband’s refusal to produce coffee for his wife.
This would never happen in my household. Hubs is an extremely intelligent man.
I love to go out fishing
In a river, or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much…
…as watching someone else fishing on the lake while I brew another cup and curl up on the patio –
