The Grey Matters

If You’re Going To Be A Writer…

…you should probably consider marrying someone who is slightly obsessed with coffee. Not just making coffee or drinking it, but knowing the beans, learning how to roast, and brewing it in at least 5 different ways.

there’s ray

Or, marriage aside, learn to do all this yourself. You just can’t go back to drip or those weird little cups after experiencing the real thing.

Because like me, you might know that having a cup of coffee or tea is just about the nicest way to start a day off. Why is this? I think it’s because it’s warm and cozy (even in the summer), tastes great, and is equally nice to enjoy alone or with someone.

I love drinking coffee on my own. I love drinking it with Greg even more. (And that’s only partly because I usually mess up the measurements somehow.)

This morning my dear hubs roasted his own green beans for the first time. And it worked like a charm.

Greg!

After a morning like this, a writer should surely be able to bust out at least one poem.

And if that’s not enough… grow some flowers. And get a chicken that is cuter than pie.

Happy Tuesday everyone. Try to step out of your coffee comfort zone and brew in a new way today!

Love, Lou

  1. So cute! Posts like this are my favorite. :D

  2. My brother just came back from Ireland and brought us back a box of TEA. Like, legit Irish tea. We’re so excited!

  3. We need to be friends. I’ve just decided this. Mainly because you have a chicken. But also because this post just made me imagine the smell of roasting coffee, which just might be the absolute best smell ever.

    • I would love to be friends :) I’ll tell the chickens you say hi… I just went out to feed them. I completely agree about coffee- roasted coffee- being the best smell possibly EVER. Magical stuff! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
