“Excuse me, Miss? Your slip is showing,” she said. The embroidered cats on her sweater looked accusingly at the offending strip of white muslin peeping out from under the yellow skirt.
“Oh, it isn’t a slip, it’s part of the skirt. Just for decoration, but thanks anyway!” Said the Miss as she added dollop of cream to her coffee.
“I guess they were trying to make it pretty or something.” She said woefully as she walked out of the lunchroom.
“Um, yes, I suppose so,” Said the Miss to the coffee pot.
I don’t know how many times I’ve posted about popsicles this summer, but it has been so hot popsicles seem to be the answer. Here is another recipe that I really want to try: Coffee Popsicles! Don’t these look amazing with the cream at the bottom? Yum!
I woke up late, but somehow time slowed down and I am still on time. I really like my outfit. It’s warm outside (albeit overcast, but that reminds me of California and home). And, I’ve just discovered I like black coffee. This day is off to an amazing start!
Do you like random? Here is a picture of a hedgehog that is too adorable for words.
And now I am randomly going to quote some Lent appropriate Shakespeare just to top off the morning:
“Fear no more the heat o’ the sun,
Nor the furious winter’s rages;
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone and ta’en thy wages:
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.”
- Cymbeline, 4.2
In Scandinavian countries the feast of St. Lucy starts out with the oldest girl in the family waking the others with coffee and danish. A crown of candles is also involved.
Personally I am of the opinion that every morning should start out with coffee, candles and baked goods. Mmmmm.
A dear friend of mine brought this adorable espresso cup back for me from Rome. Its from the Sant’Eustachio! A cafe I would have frequented multiple times during the day if I had lived close enough and had enough spending money while I was living in Rome. They make the worlds best cappuccini, EVER.
Without further delay. . . cuteness.
Look! It has finger dents, so that you don’t have to worry about losing one precious drop because the cup slipped out of your fingers!
It was wrapped in their napkins! I think I always had two or three of these floating in my purse while I was living in Rome.
The bag it came in! I am not going to spare you any details. Plus it has all their contact information on it! If you want to learn more about the actual Church that is next door and the saint, click here and here. Also, yes, the deer’s head with the cross is also on Jagermeister bottles. The deer’s head with the cross harkens back to the ledgend of St. Eustace (Sant’Eustachio).
Enjoy the light, the coffee, and a day of rest.
