Posts Tagged ‘early morning fix’


For the first time, I prepared two cups of the brew early this morning. I was awake at 5am and was at the garden before 6am. I prepared a cup with just a little sugar to go with it. I put it in a small foot  stool near where I was weeding. Two of our naughty cats played around and the plastic stool toppled on the grass.  Oh my!

I have to go back in the kitchen to prepare another cup and this time, I put it on top of our concrete garden table covered by a glass coaster. I don’t drink coffee every day except when I am in the garden this early and there is a morning breeze that plays with the leaves in the garden making the dry ones fall to the ground. Every day I have to sweep the yard. We have a small compost pit at the farthest corner of the garden and all the leaves that I gather are placed there to rot.  This soil mix is one of the best to use when you are replanting.

Speaking of coffee, mom can’t get by without her early morning fix. Sometimes she doesn’t even eat breakfast as long as she has coffee prepared.  We used to let her prepare her own but in the last few months, either the coffee is too much, the sugar too little and she ends up with an unpalatable cup. So what Josef suggested was for us to buy her three-in-one sachets complete with sugar, cream and of course coffee. These instant coffee packets are flavored in caramel. mocha, hazelnut, brown coffee etc. They come in different brands. Problem solved. All you need is to pour hot water and voila, it’s done.

Are you a coffee drinker or a tea lover? I am one of both. I’ve tried turmeric tea yesterday. They say it is good to boost immunity.
