My favorite part of the day is having my morning coffee. There's nothing better than the smell of coffee brewing while I get the hounds their breakfast and morning treats, take them outside to do their business and then settle in with a nice hot cup of coffee. It's quiet and the day hasn't started to escalate yet. In the summer it's even better because you can take your coffee outside and enjoy the gardens and birds at the same time.
This is my morning coffee sanctuary.
Yes, that is Fred in the backgrounmd who has already found a piece of crud from the garden to chew on.
Here..... let me get closer.
nom, nom, nom......
Whatever, I'm in my peaceful place.
Above is my view from where I sit. I don't know what it is about the pink floozy but Freddie won't touch her. She still lays there guarding that darn antler while Fred eats garden crud! I'd take the antler, but if Freddie's that scared of her, I don't know what she'd do to me. I say just let sleeping floozies lay!
This is my little set up while I have my coffee. Laptop, phone, and my half crocheted dishcloth that I only started yesterday with encouragement from Dip-Dip and the Bridge. Check out her post today and see all the dishcloths/potholders that were crocheted by the Blogsville Ladies Crochet Society. I will be finishing mine today and I can't thank her enough for the tutorial on her blog. I don't have that one on one help since my Mom passed away. I would always just call her when I got stuck. This helped me so much!
Back to my morning coffee. Below of course is Good Gloria which by the way my husband has started calling her Eva LongGloria. (sigh)
That's her outdoor bed from when we first got her last year and it's still her favorite spot to lay when she's not in the lounge chair or loveseat with me.
And this is Fred after I put him back in the house so I could enjoy my morning coffee this morning!
I won't be out here too long this morning though as we are having another heat wave that started yesterday and it's already 22 C and I can feel the humidity starting to build once again. But hey, I'm not complaining. It's Friday and the start to our long weekend as Monday is Canada Day. So hubby has a three day weekend! Yay!
I know the U.S. holiday is July the 4th so you may like this recipe from Theresa's Mixed Nuts . They are Patriotic Pops! I am going to make red and white ones for our Canada Day barbecue.
