WOD Challenge 03-07-21 My Thermos

Good morning everyone!

I love my coffee Thermos Dave got me about a year ago, it keeps my coffee hot instead of lukewarm like cups can do. It can be closed to keep it hot for hours, not that it takes me that long to drink it! You can tell when it’s getting time for a new one if your coffee doesn’t stay piping hot for at least an hour.

Every once in a blue moon, I might drink coffee in a regular coffee cup or mug, if I want more than the Thermos holds (about 14 oz) and I need to drink it in a hurry. ☺️

Enjoy your Sunday with a hot cuppa!

SoCS-Coffee, Tea, or Me, The First Flirty Book I Ever Read

Buenos tardes mis amigos!

Today I am participating in Linda G Hill’s SoCS prompt which is “coffee, tea, or me?”

I remember being a young teen and wanting something more “grown up” to read, so I took this book “Coffee, Tea, or Me” by Donald Bain from Mom’s collection on her floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and proceeded to enjoy it without her knowledge. I’m pretty sure I got in trouble for it, but I thought it was worth it. The book was written as factual in 1966, yet was later to be revealed that it was a work of fiction. I remember it being pretty scandalous and much of it was over my naïve little head. Still, it felt like I was getting away with something, which of course made it that much more fun to read! Another one I read and Mom felt was too “adult” for me was “Jaws”, by Peter Benchley. After I finished that one and walked away nonplussed, I guess she decided my reading level was up to par and didn’t question my choice of reading material anymore. 😉
