This week I’m trying the Colombian Especial from Newman’s Own Organics. You already know I like organic and Newman’s products tend to be good, so it seems like a good choice. There are several different Newman’s coffees to choose from: Special Blend, Breakfast Blend, French Roast, and Colombian Especial.
From the [...]
I haven’t had a new picture made for my driver’s license since I moved to Florida ten years ago. Since my license got stolen, I had to go down to the DMV instead of ordering a new one online. And lucky me, I got a brand new photo on my brand new license. [...]
Our toy poodles are cute. And smart. But with the smart comes easily picking up some bad habits. Like trying to get to our food when we’re eating. Like jumping on people when they come to the door. Like barking at everything that drives, walks, jogs, or hops by our [...]
From past experience, I know that I tend to like single origin coffees better than blends, and I’m trying to buy more organic products for our family, so when I saw Seattle’s Best Organic Sumatra, I thought it would be the perfect pick for this week. I bought it at my local grocery store, [...]

I’ve recently read a few articles on which coffee is “the best.” There’s this article in Food and Wine magazine on the Top Ten Boutique Roasters. And then I read this from Consumer Reports and I got to thinking…
Now y’all know I love my coffee. I’m always trying different bags of beans [...]
I love Mother’s Day. I love being able to say, “Sorry…you can’t do that/watch that/say that. It’s Mother’s Day.” It only happens once a year, so I figure that I have to take full advantage of it.
I wish I could say I’m Queen of the house all the time, but my royalty [...]
This morning my husband caught me half-asleep on the sofa. I was waiting for the coffee to get ready and thinking about the new book. When I told him I was thinking–definitely not sleeping–he said something along the lines of, “Oh, yeah, I always think with my eyes closed.”
Apparently this is something I [...]
