A {Ho Hum} Virtual Coffee

Good Morning!

I'm here and it's the morning. Are you surprised? I know I am.

If we were really meeting for coffee today I'd offer you a piece of the most delicious pumpkin pie ever {that I made, I might add} and a cup of Starbucks Breakfast Blend in a nice big mug.

Then we would cuddle up on the couch in front of the fire and I'd ask you about your weekend. I hope you did something fun.

We went to the Iowa game {of course} and tailgated {of course} and froze my bum off, which was a tad surprising since the damn weather man said it would be sunny and 65 at game time. Ummm, yeah I don't think so.


The game was a nail-bitter like usual. I wish for once the Hawkeyes would just win one, without all the drama. And we even played Michigan, who is supposed to stink {no offense to my Wolverine friends}. Seriously, I can't talk any shit about my team, because we are quickly becoming sucktastic lately.

My view of the game...The guy next to me was literally 7 feet tall...oh and a MI fan.
So, enough football talk. How did you spend your extra hour yesterday {if you got an extra hour} For those of you who don't participate in Day Light Saving Time, do you feel that you are missing out or does it really matter to you? I'm beginning to wonder what the big deal is. It's only an extra hour, is it really necessary. Oh, well I'm not in charge of the world {darn it} so not my decision.

Anyway, I also want to let you all know that I'm hosting a Drop 'N Shop open house on the 19th. Vendors include The Pampered Chef, Stella and Dot and Thirty One. Since I know many of you won't can't drive the hundreds of miles to visit me just to shop, I'm offering my blogging friends some special deals leading up to my party. So keep an eye on the blog for details {probably on Friday. Hint. Hint.}

Oh, and I also want to direct you here. G's birth story was featured on Sarah's blog yesterday. If you have a minute stop over and say hello. She just added a bouncing baby boy to her Heavenly Life and he's a cutie pie.

Well, since it is so early I do have to head to work. So have a GREAT day, and don't forget to tell me what you are thankful for today.

I'll meet you at Amy's after work, so we can continue the caffeinated conversation.

thanks for the 'coffee'! I wish that extra hour had actually felt like an extra hour but, I had a grandson visiting and his inner alarm didn't care! LOL

Thanks for the "coffee". I am drinking my own Starbucks (Via Columbian roast, made over ice) as I read, actually. Wishing you could send me the pumpkin pie!

There's nothing better than going to a football game and tailgating in the fall.... NOTHING! And my Defending National Champion Auburn Tigers aren't having the best year..... but all the teams that have beaten us are in the top 10.... so that's not so bad, right?

Oooh, curling up in front of the fire with a cup of coffee sounds divine!

Sorry to be joining the party a little late!

Thailand doesn't do daylight savings and I wondered how it would be. Turns out, it doesn't bother me at all! Switching that hour was always a big adjustment for me in the States, and now there isn't anything to have to adjust to. The only thing I notice is that the sun seems to set earlier during the summer months, but it's no big deal. I get up around 6:30-7 a.m. every day and the sun is always just rising, which is nice. I HATED getting up when it was still dark. Granted, Thailand is close to the equator, so I imagine we would experience less of a shift than places closer to either pole.

Oh! Coffee by the fire! So lovely; especially after a game.
