Coffee and Competition – Corona Café Austin Texas

My three friends and I were headed to a quilter’s studio to check out her hand dyed fabric (stay tuned) Anne needed REAL coffee.  Tucked away on Corona Drive in a mini strip of businesses was Corona Café

These two men were going to play disc golf but the rain kept them inside on Saturday morning.

“We felt like doing something competitive.”  So here they are in Corona Café playing Scrabble.

The barista made us excellent coffee.

Naiman was so nice.  I asked him about his name.  His father got it off the back of a car but it is a Mongolian warrior. He told us we could look it up.    Naiman

Matt Carries Freshly Baked Croissants

He was headed to Enrico’s Biscotti Company.  I was headed to Ohio.

Wait, may I take your photo?  I wanted to get out the real camera, not the phone.

I was parked just in front of his truck

He was so nice.  His name’s Matt.  He baked these down on 31st Street and was bringing them to Enrico’s Biscotti. If you saw the movie The Bread My Sweet/ A Wedding for Bella, you’ve been inside bakery.

And this is the part you are never going to believe.

I watched that very movie (renamed A Wedding for Bella) not twelve hours before I ran into Matt taking the croissants to the same bakery in the film. If you click on the title above you can read Roger Ebert’s review.  All filmed in Pittsburgh, right in the Strip District.

School Breakfast at my Desk

A two hour delay again this morning.

For the first time in three years, I got breakfast from the cafeteria the other day. The “bagel” doughy and sweet but I was hungry.

You can see a pair of #35 knitting needles peeking out on the left.  Coffee provided by my neighbor the librarian.School Breakfast

Me on Big Screen TV, Sort of

When I parked the car to go to coffee this morning, I saw this huge TV on the sidewalk, waiting for the trash.

(Another title could be Trash Selfie?)

Me on Big Screen TVYes it was really windy.

The inviting scene as I parked the car.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Warmth

Warmth is what we seek this time of year.

Old School Coffee at My Sister’s in NYC

When I woke up in Mary’s apartment this morning, after an 11 hour sleep, this was the welcoming sight. She was heating milk and making coffee. Last night we took 3 subways to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw the tree lighting with the Neopolitan Baroque Creche (stay tuned) Today it’s art and photography excursions but getting fortified first.  A bit grainy on the iPhone shots.

Glass of Coffee Refraction on the Way to School

A new weekly photo challenge will come out Friday afternoon. I posted a gallery of light through crystals already but –

Here’s what I noticed on the way to school ( I didn’t get to the Drive-Thru)

I saw the light refracting through the glass pattern onto my coffee and out the other side of the glass.

I don’t think I was looking for refractions last week prior to the challenge.

This one presented itself.

(And yes, you’re right. The pink and orange is a gift card from Dunkin Donuts.)
