Here's to You!

Is there anything better than sitting across a small table from a friend while enjoying a delicious cup of your favorite coffee? (Okay, if you prefer chocolate or tea, just pretend that's what's in the cup.)
Being without my electric coffee pot before, during and six days after Hurricane Gustav, I was still able to enjoy my coffee addiction, thanks to my trusty old aluminum drip pot. It's my #1 hurricane preparation supply item.
I'm not sure if my metabolism isn't working at all, if I'm just sluggish from years of sleep deprivation, have the peculiar propensity shared by many writers, or if I have a borderline case of Attention Deficit Disorder. In any case, whatever ails me, the ground bean nectar seems to do the trick. Without a watch or clock in sight, I can tell you when it's within 5 minutes of 3:00 in the afternoon. Time for a nap or afternoon java.
Tell me about your caffeine preference and how much of it you consume per day. What's the best cup you ever had? And if you're wondering what brand I prefer, I'm a lover of our own homegrown brand -- Community Coffee and the CC's Coffeehouses dotting our city; especially their Cafe' Special. You can shop on line now too, which displaced Cajuns just love!
Hmmm, maybe I'll host a contest of some sort soon (count the coffee beans in the jar?) and send the winner a pound of that delectable blend.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I gotta admit, I'm not a coffee lover. My grandfather gave me some coffee when I was a girl and I hated the taste. He also told me that if I drank coffee, it would turn my knees black. Whether or not this has anything to do with my distaste for coffee now is unknown. *grin*

I do, however, enjoy my morning Diet Pepsi. That is my drink of choice. And since I just had a few Dove Dark Chocolate Promises for dessert, I can say that it's been a good day. :-)

I am terrible, terrible, terrible about caffeine- I have a mountain dew problem, and I drink several a day. I can't even come up with a number, that's how bad it is!

I love my Deep Creek Blend - roasted right here in the little town of Waynesville here in our Smoky Mountains! I even got my "Community Coffee Drinkin'" husband to love DCB -- haw!

Now, the only thing missing with my cup of coffee is my friend sitting across from me *sniff* miss ya sister friend!

Melissa: Yeah, I think Grandpa "ruint" ya for coffee, but glad you found another system booster with the Diet Pepsi & Doves! (Hey, one cancels out the other, right?)

Colby, my middle kid (son, 17) does the "Dew" too! At least I've gotten him to switch to diet and store brands.

I'll be there soon, Miz Kat! Can.not.wait! Hope you got me a big arse mug.

If you go to the mountains, you can't tell Cathie. The Brevard, Ashville area is her favorite place on earth.
Great place to find some cool stuff and people.
