Sometimes you drink a little wine – you do silly things – but you always smile – but – to start my day before some wine is ” COFFEE ” !
For those of you who do not know me – I have always gotten up EARLY !
Like I am up by 5:00 AM. every morning – I only need 6 to 7 hours of sleep and then I am wide awake.
Have been this way since my youth ! I would wake up – my bedroom was the front upstairs bedroom – and right outside the two windows – was a huge Maple tree.
It would be full of birds chirping in the morning -and that bedroom faced East.
So – the combination of Sun light coming in and the birds singing – well -that was my favorite before I was old enough to drink coffee !
I was raised in my early years by my grand ma – she was a widow and had moved in with us.
My very first time I can remember having coffee – was when she made me ” COFFEE SOUP ” for breakfast – as she called it !
During the depression when she had her farm and family -11 kids – they had to improvise to feed everyone.
And one of the staples living on a large farm was -they had milk from the cows –
they bought barrels of flour ( homemade bread ) – big bags of sugar – and raised pigs for side pork !
So – ” COFFEE SOUP ” became a norm for them – coffee being a treat for the whole house – and she would make bread and rolls – pies and cakes all day long.
She would slice me a big thick piece of home made bread – put it on a plate – a piece of side pork that she fried –
then pour coffee on top of the bread – a little milk and sprinkle sugar on it !
To this day I remember that and how good it tasted with that side pork !
That was my introduction to COFFEE all those years ago.
And – another lunch time feature from the depression years – was Milk off the farm and white crackers and sugar mixed together !
Although I have never had either since – I was raised that way !
Today – first thing is fix my coffee – a little flavored cream –
and I try to have flavored coffee – not strong – I tend not to like strong flavors – beer included –
and I do not really like wine unless it is a little sweet !
Sipping my coffee while blogging –
sitting in public with a coffee and people watch –
between church services – getting a cup of java and talking.
Those are the little things in life that as you get older – you cherish.
Much like I do in my memory of my grandma.
COFFEE became a staple in my life along time ago – and since I am up before dawn –
it is all the more tasteful in the quiet space of peaceful thought !
My wife – Sherry – does not drink COFFEE –
she is a TEA drinker – I think that is the SWEDE coming out in her !
Hope you like the blog today –
a little bit of nothing on nothing !
