The Sunday Salon: I ♥ coffee

The Sunday Salon

I love coffee. I mean: that smell, that taste, that buzz, even the appearance of it steaming away in a cup. And the effort that a good barista puts into getting it just right – it’s a joyous thing. Did I mention I love coffee?

Until this week I had not drunk coffee for about six weeks, since I had a flare-up of irritable bowel syndrome. Having to eat and drink more cautiously for a while is fine (in fact, when my lupus flared in the meantime it was quite helpful – when thinking through brain fog, fewer choices = good) but damn I missed coffee!

I agree

So this week, feeling miles better, I treated myself. I have also read some good books, including The Light Between Oceans and the first few volumes of Y the Last Man by Brian K Vaughan and Pia Guerra. Life is good.

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better and you’ve read some interesting books. I love coffee, too. I’ve got one of those machines that make the perfect single cup… too tempting.

    Oh, I LOVE coffee, too, and haven’t had any yet this morning because it’s so early and my grandson is sleeping on the sofa in the living room. Even when I tiptoe to the kitchen to turn on the coffee pot, I risk waking him!

    Glad you can enjoy your coffee again.

    Lol. I love coffee, too. It’s so sad to have to hold off for a while, but so great to come back to it!!! 😀

    I don’t drink coffee. I gave it up years ago. Apart from one mug of tea with breakfast, hot water it is for me. Maybe a green or a red tea if I’m pushing the boat out.
