I love my coffee. It's a well know fact among my friends. Most of our outings include a stop at Starbucks or Brickhouse. I start the morning off with a grinding and a percolating. Every morning. I do it before showering, getting dressed or brushing my teeth. Addicted? No, just well prepared.
This morning I am particularly in need. We had a busy weekend. Both kids are sick with some kind of profound snot producing cold. My wonderful husband took care of them while Wok (grandma) and I got ready for Switcharoos. After sorting, cleaning, ironing, tagging and inputing over 200 items, I am nearly ready. I have to go through the toy room now but will have quite the load. Switcharoos is our local consignment sale. It is HUGE. Twice a year Switcharoos starts off a domino effect of children's consignment sales in our area. This year not only am I consigning, but I'm also working the sale. But, thanks to Wok, I have just over 200 items ready for the sale--I'm ahead of the game.
Hence the need for coffee. I'm whooped! Today I still have two sick little ones to take care of. They are camped out in front of the tv with juice resting eating bananas and crackers.
The pictured mugs are my favorite ones. The top one I made at one of our local clay painting shops called Color Clay Cafe. My oldest and I went there for one of our "dates". It is great, it holds about 20 ounces of that carmel yumminess. Add a bit of milk and sugar and I'm in mommy heaven. The second is from my dish set and holds about 8 ounces. I love the tankard shape. If I let myself I could easily become a coffee cup collector. But we don't have a lot of space for such a thing in our kitchen so I figure if I don't start then I won't continue it. For now, these two are my favorite at home mugs.
Enjoy your monday while I wipe noses, fetch juice and snacks and drink lots and lots of coffee!
