Time For Coffee!!!


  My son tells me all the time that I should #1 own stock in Starbucks, and #2 that I need to invent a sippy-lid for the top of the coffee pot, because my coffee cups just keep getting bigger and bigger….. Maybe he’s right 🙂


I found this megacup yesterday at our churchs’ bookstore. Miss Sarah had just unpacked the “trial shipment” of 2 of these and didn’t even have them on the shelf yet *grins* so, of course, I told her I “had to have” one and begged her to PLEEEAAASSSEEE put one back for me until they went on the shelf. She is such a sweetheart that once she saw they were already in the computer, she went ahead and sold me this baby now. YIPPEE!!!!! They will be getting more in (esp. since everyone who saw them wanted one) so if you would like one to go to www.walkonthewaterbooks.com and ask about them, in case they aren’t on the website just yet – and tell them Shady sent you!! 🙂 However, be forewarned – this baby holds approx a 1/2 pot (of a 12 cup pot) of coffee at a time!!!! Fez (one of my “adopted” teenagers) said it would make a great soupbowl too. Probably, but mine is just for coffee, and maybe Hot Chocolate. Hehehehehe.  



Anyways….today is the start of my 72 hour Quilting Marathon, so I need all the caffeine I can get….wish me luck –  on the quilts, not the caffeine! 🙂 LOL  


It actually snowed last night!!! No accumulation, but it looked very pretty for a few minutes, big fluffy flakes and all. We’ll see if we get anything else today – weatherboy’s not sure yet. Today’s the perfect day for it to snow if it’s going to though; I’ll be in the sewing studio, roast will be in the crockpot, Christmas music playing, and cinnamon apple candles burning all over the house! 🙂 My kinda day 🙂 Oh yeah, did I mention I’ll actually have the house to myself to do all of this?!?! Yaayyy!!! I love my family – but today is not the day to be entertaining them. 🙂 I have work to do 🙂 If I get enough accomplished today, I may even see about making some Christmas Cookies later on tonight. That’ll be their “reward” for letting me get this stuff done. 🙂 We’ll see…….

Well, it’s off to the studio I go, coffee in hand… Here’s wishin’ Y’all a warm, safe, happy and productive day! I’ll talk to Y’all more later:)
