I’ve already written a post about the little things, but since the request by the Daily Prompt is a little different than the theme of that post I thought I’d write another.
Describe a little thing — one of the things you love that define[s] you[r] world
s but is often overlooked.
Since I talked about my husband, Mr. Rockstar, in my last post about little things, I thought I’d write about coffee for this post.
As I sit at my desk writing I’m usually drinking coffee. (Sometimes sweet tea, Dr. Pepper, or a Starbuck’s Mocha DoubleShot Energy, but eight times out of ten it is usually coffee.) I’m an avid coffee drinker. When I was in my early 20s I hated the stuff. I hit my 30s and fell in love with it. I’m not sure if my taste buds changed, or if it was going to college (in my 30s) or what, but my love affair with coffee began and I’ve been smitten ever since. The little thing that might be overlooked as far as coffee goes, at least for me and my world, is the wonderful thing I call my coffee maker.
Without it I’d be lost. Don’t get me wrong, I know how to make coffee with a percolator, but I don’t own one. My dad does, he uses it when they go camping or when they lose power, but I’m not so lucky. I need to head to garage sales, look on Ebay, go to flea markets and thrift stores and see if I can find one, but right now if I lose power or my coffee maker goes kaput, I have no way to make coffee–and I don’t like instant coffee. So this is an ode to my coffee maker, as well as the half&half that I love, and the sugar or sweetener because I don’t care for black coffee either. There’s a picture of my coffee maker. She was a gift from one of Mr. Rockstar’s sister’s the Christmas before last. And as you can see, there is Folger’s Country Roast, which is Mr. Rockstar’s favorite but my favorite is Gevalia.
Though I love the taste of coffee, as well as the smell of freshly brewed coffee, I also love the warmth and the feeling I get when I drink it. In the wintertime, I mix a packet of hot cocoa with the marshmallows in a cup of coffee and WaLa instant mocha latte :D. Or I’ll make a cup of hot chocolate with half&half and Nestle Quick or Hershey’s Syrup and add it to my coffee (in the big cup you see above) and then add whipped cream and WALA!!! Deliciousness! I’ve noticed that while I am writing I drink a lot more coffee. :D
Hope you have a great one. I’m off to make a pot of coffee…:D
