“He poured still boiling coffee into the mug and then filled his own before setting the pot down on the ring of stones they had laid.” –Frank Roderus
I know it’s still gray light, but I saw you ridin’ in so get yourself in here and have a chair. Coffee’s up; try to keep it ready. Ahhhh, for kitchen blend – it tastes pretty good. That shows to go you that I’m not a coffee snob. Kitchen blend? That’s when there’s only a few spoonfuls of coffee left in the bag and you put it in a canister and add to it and add to it. Pretty soon, you have several types and there you have kitchen blend. Hope you’re not offended.
I’m tempted to go back to boilin’ coffee, at least on Saturday. The new fangled pots with all of the buttons look fancy in the kitchen and might save a little time, but there’s something about boiled coffee. One thing for sure is that the aroma floats through the kitchen and into the rest of the house. Maybe I just need aroma therapy.
Speakin’ of aroma my friend, my wife did somethin’ sorta mean the other night. I saw she was makin’ biscuits, and she told me to get to sleep before she put them in the oven. Well, I took her advice (like always) and went to sleep, but I started dreamin’ or somethin’ and woke. It was the smell of those biscuits in the oven. But I disciplined myself and went back to sleep, and right after I made coffee the next morning I ate one. My only regret was that is was not hot, right from the oven.
How ’bout that! I stayed away from politickin’, preachifyin’, and philosophyzin’ this mornin’. The ol’ gizzard is right happy this mornin’. But I can’t let you go without this word from the Holy Writ. “The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, shining brighter and brighter until midday.” (Proverbs 4:18, HCSB) When we have the Lord with us on the trail, things sure do go better.
Hey, now, don’t you go hittin’ the trail without checkin’ that cinch.
