Peach State says: The Simple Joy of Coffee!

There was tingling chill as I reached the kitchen this morning in my bare feet. The flick of a switch sheds light on my morning as I press the VIP switch “ON” and proceed to clad my shivering toes in warm socks. I finish and return to the routinely important process and wait for it… I pause and breathe in….Ahh!

“The Simple Joy of Coffee!”

A genuine-shoulder-relaxing-scent wafts it’s way capturing all of my senses.


It’s true! Very few words are spoken in the first 15-20 minutes of the morning….
Translation:Hubby and I are too busy sipping and enjoying the first tastes as we finally come to the realization another day has started! Sadly there are days when we cannot seem to get enough coffee and we find ourselves a bit out of sorts! ( What? I was trying to say it nicely!). The neatest thing happened Christmas evening…my hubby, feeling quite neglected by his oversized coffee cup, found his way into the kitchen…ALL BY HIMSELF! He pressed the required buttons and filled the correct filters and came away with a flavorful brew. “Now if I could just get him to possibly make me a cup when he strolls into the kitchen….” (Whack!) It’s okay…I am awake now!

I will be content to making my own…whenever I want a smile-provoking-cup-of-caffeinated-warmth!


Enjoy and repeat! Ahh, The Simple Joy of Coffee!

Is your cup still full? Do you need more? “I do!”

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
