The Weekend’s A Brewin’ via Samsung Galaxy

It’s Friday morning and even though it is late August it feels like Fall. Cool crisp air with a slight breeze.

After a brisk walk with the dog and taking the kid to her Summer program I decided that today was a REAL coffee day – not a Keurig morning.


I ground my beans into a coarse consistency. I took a deep inhale of the scent now wafting up from my grinder. It is a good life indeed.

My electric kettle has the water bubbling within a minute and into the French Press it goes. I patiently wait while it works its magic.

As soon as my timer goes off – yes I need a timer. I get impatient or distracted, both things = not perfectly brewed coffee.

I gently swirl then slide the pressing mechanism down and fill my cup. After a splash of almond milk I am good to go.

I take my warm mug decorated with my daughters second grade artwork on it and bring it to our porch swing.

I slowly observe, savor: the warmth in my hands,  steam swirling up from the mug,  aroma filling the air, smooth rich flavor on my tongue and heat coursing through me.

My senses are alive. I bask in the glory of the moment, of the quiet stillness of the morning.

Ten minutes.

That is what I gave myself.

Ten minutes.

To relish in the glory of simple things, little moments, happiness.

Then off to work for one last day before the weekend.
