Coffee, Books, Life.

Mmmm, coffee. I’m pretty sure it makes the world go round. I’m not a tea fan. I’ve tried a couple different kinds and it mostly reminds me of hot dirt water. Green tea may be the exception, but I’ve only had it iced from Panera. To be fair, I think black coffee tastes like dirt water too. Mine is filled with creamer and sugar and that’s the way it will remain.

I haven’t baked a thing yet this year. While I was feeling bad about that, I realized that I will be baking my proverbial balls off in the next couple of months. First, I’m throwing a baby shower for my sister-in-law. I’ve never thrown a baby shower, I don’t even like babies. I have room for like, 5 children in my life and when these twins are born, they’ll occupy the last 2 spots. Second, birthday season at work is approaching. It’s three months straight of birthdays and I’m pretty much always picked to make the desserts. So, I guess I’ll be making up for that soon.

I’m currently absorbed in and loving, The Crimson Campaign. I read the first book in the trilogy YEARS ago and just neglected to continue because as I’ve said before, I have series ADD. I received another approval via Netgalley and I still have to squeeze in that children’s book before my free month of Kindle Unlimited is up. I need more spare time!

Add to that, should my coworker fail to be able to go, I’ll be going on a business trip for work at the end of February. My spring suddenly became so busy.

Anywho, I was just having a morning of coffee and contemplation. What do you think about while waking up with a cup of joe or hot dirt water?

  1. I’ve never thrown a baby shower, or a shower or a baby but I couldn’t think of anything worse than going to a baby shower.

    Coffee for me is the same as you. I like it sweet and strong just like meeeeeeee. Haha cheesy huh? It’s my one liner every time someone asks how I take my dirt water. I like tea. Has to be sweet and strong too. I’ve been drinking tea since I was two years old.

    The title of this post reminds me of a singlet I bought for my wife that reads “Coffee, Books, Sunday’s” It’s very her.

    Where are you going on your business trip? If you’re coming to Australia please bring me gingerbread pancakes.

    1. Haha, if I go on the business trip it’s to Orlando, Florida.

      Baby showers are pretty awful. I like seeing the person open the presents I brought them and sometimes the food, but that’s it. Luckily, it’s going to be a quick, easy shower as the mother will be on bed rest in the hospital. So the plan it’s just to have some sweets, have people drop off presents, say hello to her via Skype and then they leave. Really, that’s my kind of baby shower.

      I think I might like tea if I tried it with sugar and cream. I keep forgetting to try it that way though.

  2. I’m one of those rare (not really) weirdos who likes coffee AND tea; however, I love the description of “dirt water.” Literally laughed out loud. I used to take coffee with my sugar and cream, then I completely cut out both and drank it black. I’ve found a happy medium now with just enough. I’ve had to cut down on the caffeine because I was pretty much using it to stay awake long enough to do all the things, and my heart had some problems with that. It doesn’t complain as much with earl grey tea.

    You have fur children. They count 😀

    1. The fur kids DO count and I’ll just go ahead and say they’re better than real children. 😉
      I actually had to cut back how much sugar I put in my coffee, it was out of control. Fortunately, I only need about 1 cup of coffee to be able to wake up and handle my day. Rough days of course require a shot of espresso and then I drive my coworkers insane. ;3

      1. I’ll agree with you on that because I don’t have any yet lol. They’re definitely easier to take care of…well, not dogs. Cats are super easy to take care of, but my dog parent friends have to be home at certain times and can’t leave them alone for long or at all.

        Damn…I wish. I’ve been drinking a cup in the evening to get anything done. It helps, but I have to be careful I don’t drink it too late.

  3. I would cut someone for some coffee right now. Or anything vaguely caffeinated, really. lol I’ve cut a lot of caffeine out lately, but today I am feeling the fact that I’ve had none. -_-
    Yeah, baking is such a double-edged sword. It’s awesome seeing people love the things you baked, but then it sucks because they designate you to the role of baking bitch any time there’s a work function or birthday or something. 😛
    Let me know what you think of jazzed up tea if you get around to trying it. I always wondered if it would help. I’d imagine it must, right? 🙂
    I can tell I need caffeine because I’ve been making typos all day. Where I typed “birthday” earlier in this comment, I actually typed “birthing”. lmao How horrible would a work birthing be?!

    1. If there was work place birthing, I’d quit lmao. I could really use a coffee right now but it’s 8:30 pm and there is no way I’d go to sleep at all after that. I’m such a grandma lately. Ready to be asleep at 10 pm every night.
