Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap Topic of The Week

The Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap Topic of the week.... you know you were waiting for this, weren't you? (I hope my pal actually reads these with a cup of coffee so I don't bore her to sleep, LOL)

What is the ideal setting for enjoying the perfect cup of coffee? Who would be there - or would you be alone? Inside or out? Morning or night? With food or just the steaming cup of Joe?

My house is always so LOUD. A lot of noise all day long. The kids, the husband, the TV, the music, the video games, the rustling of papers, it is just so LOUD. Even when they sleep, they all sleep so LOUDLY.

I get up before everyone else does and if I remember and if I have enough time, I make myself a nice cup of coffee and sit there in the stillness of the house before everything begins to move and shake and wake up. I sit still and quite, enjoy the peace without a care in the world, clear my head without a thought except the scent of the coffee and the stillness of the house before the day begins.

Then in a few moments it can get LOUD all over again.

Although today, I enjoyed a nice slice of homemade pumpkin pie with my coffee too

I know! Before I had kids, I never truly appreciated the beauty of pure silence. Now I definitely don't take it for granted! :-)

lol. I guess it's feast or famine - sometimes I long for it to NOT be quiet here :)
