Coffee, Books & Relaxing In The Sun // Monday Morning Chit Chat
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?
