Wisdom for a Friday

Welcome to my Friday. I'm not really sure where it's going, but my guess that we're headed soon to an approaching Saturday. If you follow me on Facebook (and you should) you'll know that I'm on the verge of breaking up with Mr. Coffee. I'm waiting for him to finish his job right now and supply me with a few cups of coffee which will invariably become cold in the lag time between adding soy milk and equal and then a few sprinkles of hawaij, a Yemenite spice mix. The main problem with Mr. Coffee is that he's become cold. I mean, how much does one have to do to warm up coffee? I feel like I give so much of myself to him. Some people attribute their creativity to a muse. Mine is to my coffee.
So now he's finally done. My coffee is in my cup. My cup is on the table. My hand would be on the handle if I wasn't presently typing. Can someone explain why my pricey dishes chip all the time, but my dollar store coffee mugs can be pitched at concrete and they'd probably not even suffer a scratch? I'm currently considering replacing all of my dishware with these gems from the dollar store. Yeah, sure they're ugly. But what's ugliness when it will last forever? I mean, who wouldn't want a forever filled with ugly, sturdy things? We can call these things "eclectic." They're not ugly. They're eclectic.

  1. Hey you!!! Been meaning to stop by and give my hugs and kisses for a hearty mazal tov! On the recent published and on the new very classy, very mature blog!!!

    RE your coffee the parent-teacher conferences last week a teacher who was much busier than I asked me to make her a cup of coffee, but with strict directions: 1. take a spoon of instant and a spoon, not heaping of sugar. 2. pour milk into it, 1/4 to 1/2 cup filled. 3. Mix well and then MICROWAVE for 1minute. 4. take out, stir again, and then add HOT boiling water........

    Re-invent the israeli in you and give this a try......let me know how it works for you. HUGS....


be kind.
