Welcome to Monday Morning Chit Chat! I’m so glad you are here. Todays’ post was created with the help of Michele, who asked the following questions of me:
Coffee? What are your thoughts on the perfect cup?
If you know me at all, you know how much I LOVE coffee. My Freshly Brewed Life (my former blog name) was coffee inspired, as well as my book, Coffee Talk With Jesus. I am thankful that at my age (soon to be 49!) I can still enjoy a cup during the day or evening and not be bothered by it.
I love both hot and cold coffee, although I drink more hot coffee in the winter and almost always iced coffee in the summer. For me, the perfect cup of coffee is on the sweater side. Yes, I am one of those who likes coffee with my cream, I like it white! My favorite hot coffee drinks when I buy them are Zebra Mochas (a mix of dark and white chocolate), Cinnamon Dolce Lattes (because I love cinnamon) or a Chai Tea Latte. But now that it’s summer, I cannot get away from the Ice Caramel Macciatto with an extra pump of vanilla.
I believe the perfect cup of coffee is anything that leaves you satisfied after drinking it.
Are you doing any reading just for fun?
I have to admit that reading has been a little difficult lately. I have so many books I want to read, but can’t seem to quite down long enough, or focus my attention long enough, to actually enjoy reading them. One of the many books I have on my Kindle that I thought would be a fun read is this one:
You can read more about it here.
I don’t buy near as many magazines as I use to. Recipes, housekeeping and organizational tips are all found on line and within the blogs I read. However, I occasionally l like to pick up this magazine at my local Wal-Mart:
AllYou is jam packed with helpful tips on organization, budgeting, recipes, make up tips, etc. It also has quite a bit of coupons that I have found useful in the past.
Favorite read in the hammock?
Oh this question has me wanting a hammock so badly. I can just imagine myself climbing into it and never getting up. Especially if I had a good book in my hand with an ocean view to look at. I think the book that is on my shelf that would warrant an all-day hammock read would be this one:
Find it on Amazon.
A powerful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea, Redeeming Love is a life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.
I’ve had this book for a very long time and haven’t been able to sit down and read it yet. I think there will be a lot of healing when I finally am able to read it, perhaps in the hammock while over looking the beach.
I hope you enjoyed our chit chat this morning. Would you take a moment to share what’s in your perfect cup, and/or a favorite book or magazine?
