It's Tuesday, it's Tuesday...
Ready for coffee?
I am but I have to tell you, I have not been looking as forward to my morning coffee
as usual because my steamer/frother thingy on my espresso machine is broke.
So, let me tell you how I have been making it the last two weeks, don't laugh though.
I make my espresso as usual, then I fill my regular coffee cup with a little milk
(but not as much as I did before), then heat it in the microwave for about two minutes.
Then I pour a little (I never measure) milk in a glass Mason jar with a lid and shake it for like a minute.
Yep, you read that right, I shake it by hand, really good. Hence, the hillbilly part.
Add espresso to the coffee cup of milk then scoop frothy milk out of Mason jar with a spoon and
add lots of cinnamon. I love cinnamon and can never have enough.
I think I am going to coin this The Hillbilly Latte...whatcha think?
Sunday afternoon the kids and I went to a little town festival/art fair thing while Eric was
home painting the front porch. I'm not going to go on and on about what a wonderful day we had because honestly I was a bit grouchy, the kids fought way too much, the festival wasn't quite the way they made it sound online, Wyatt spilled a whole cup of lemonade on me as soon as he got it and my foot stuck to my flip-flop every time I took a step for the next couple of hours....
and yeah, I was a bit grouchy.
only favorite part of the little festival was the old cars, I love, love, love
the old ones from the 1950's. And check this one out...it's like a sign, right?
Like I should have it.
Like I should have it.
Oh and the best part about Sunday was that I thought I would go home a different way (ha)
but actually got a bit lost and went about a half hour in the wrong direction but ended up right in front of an antique mall twenty minutes before they were about to close.
Yeah, so the whole getting lost in the country thing never really bothers me, I love drives
through the country and it ended up being good anyway.
I scored a vintage camera, a couple little Holly Hobby bowls and some super cool
vintage birthday candles. It was good.
And we will be going back on purpose, not on accident, because we didn't even
get half way through the place.
So, that was our exciting weekend.
How was yours...did you do anything fun?
If we were really meeting for coffee I would have to ask about school...
Have you started yet? How is it going?
And if not, when do you start?
We are into our second week now and it is going well.
Wyatt likes his teacher a lot and he seems to be adjusting fine.
We have preschool orientation for the little lady Thursday, along with dentist appointments
for both kids. She starts school next Wednesday so I am going to have to come up
with a plan to keep myself busy next week.
Well, that's about all for me this morning....I'm going to finish my coffee out on the patio while the kids climb the tree playing indians..then in a few minutes I will remember that I didn't even fix
Wyatt's lunch yet and it's time to leave for school and we're gonna be late. Cause that's how I roll ; )
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday and thanks so much for taking time to stop here in my
little spot for coffee this morning!!
