Sugar or Cream?

Mmmm. . . can you smell it? Mine this morning is actual coffee, a rich breakfast blend from Gevalia that my husband prefers. (Actually he prefers a french roast so dark and bitter it would peel paint ;)). I'm usually a tea drinker, English breakfast or Tazo Passion. But it's cold and windy this morning, and the coffee sounded good, especially doctored with delicious hazelnut creamer.

Calories drank don't count. :)

For your blogging pleasure, I've added two new links to my Group blog listing. The Chatelaines are an eclectic mix of many of my favorite authors; Bonnie Vanak, C.L. Wilson, Cindy Holby....oh, I won't list them all. Stop by and visit when you have a chance.

I've also added Killer Fiction. You know, Gemma Halliday is the only name is their group I think I recognize. But I read one post, then another, and another...and I love their collective 'voice'. I'll recognize their names now when I'm out shopping, and their books will find their way onto my shelves.

Mmmmmm, big stretch. The cats are changing sleeping stations, from one chair to another, and I believe I'm ready for another cup, and perhaps a slice of pumpkin strudel bread. Yes, go ahead and believe it's homemade, if you are so inclined. What a lovely, lazy Sunday morning thought. :)

Thank you for stopping by, and pleasant reading as you meander through the blogs I've posted here or in the post below. Enjoy this tiny reprieve before the preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas must commence...(and if I should have already started, I don't want to know :)...)

I'm like you, Gillian, and prefer tea to coffee. When I do drink coffee, I get the Hazelnut blend, spike it with Amaretto creamer and a dash of sugar. Yum!

Checking out the new sites you listed, thanks for the heads up.

Hey Terry Jo! As dark and rainy as it is here now, I'm also in the mood for some nice, waist-expanding hot chocolate. :)

I start my day with a big latte cup of steaming French roast coffee. And since I only have one cup per day, I definitely make it strong! I find French roast is smooth tasting, as opposed to Columbian, which I find very bitter.

I like my coffee straight up, with no flavored syrups, etc., so yes, I'm one of those oddballs who goes into a coffee shop and orders a plain cup of coffee. My favorite thing to order at Starbucks is a tall Italian to go ;)

Good morning, Lee. :)

Taste is a fascinating thing, isn't it? I find any French roast my husband drinks to be way too bitter and strong for me.

And he would be right by you, ordering the plain cup of coffee.
