Athens, Ohio, that is.
My DIL Erika and I were on our way to Wiggin Street coffee on Saturday morning. She spotted the deer as we walked up the hill at Kenyon College Swim Meet.
At the Great Lakes Fiber Show there were patrons lined up for OTT’S coffee, These customers were following their favorite vendor- OTT’S coffee stand! they came strictly for the coffee. Had zero interest in fiber! One woman said she’s waited two hours in a line for this coffee goes wherever they are. Fortunately my wait was about fifteen minutes. Well worth it. I order the Sea Turtle Mocha Latte which one nice man said is their number one seller. Sorry I ordered the smaller size after I sipped it
Ritter’s Diner breakfast? It’s been a while.
This is a guest post from Maura. Look what she found! see the second photo
Everyday there’s a different saying written on the chalkboard at La Prima Espresso Company in the Strip District. I stopped in to get a coffee on my way to Ohio last week. Their coffee is so good. I took a bag of beans and a bag of ground to my Ohio families.
There are cranberries and pumpkin for American Thanksgiving.
Coffee, conversation, a little knitting refresher, too. She came bearing gifts of pastry from La Gourmandine. thanks Jen.
The title of today’s post was created by my friend Joanne in Florida . We were talking on the phone about the different types of mugs people have in their homes. Think about the clunky white mugs in a diner, sometime decorated with a single stripe near the rim. What do your mugs say about you?
One afternoon my friend Vincie made a cup of tea. She asked me “ Do you prefer a thick lipped mug or a thin lipped mug?” Hmmmmmmm. I can tell you I had to think about it. Here’s what I learned about my preferences.
When I make a cup of coffee with a paper filter in a cone, I’m choosing a thick lipped mug. When I make a cup of tea I find I’m reaching for a think lipped China mug. I’d never really thought about my preferences before she asked me. I usually choose a family picture mug in the morning.
So I asked a few friends and family, who follow the blog, to send me some photos of their mugs. Mug racks snd mug trees seem out of style although there are hundreds of stock photos of them available .
What kind of mug do you choose? Do you have matching mugs or a hodge podge, mismatched collection? thin lipped, thick lipped, white interior, or whatever is on hand?
