Oooops! This is what happens when you dunk too many gingerbread men in your Christmas coffee.

Celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas includes giving gifts each of the 12 days to someone we care about. Why not treat yourself to the gift of a great cup of coffee, along with some little tarts — or a chocolate bar — or some peanut butter cookies — or some of all three.
Not only is it Day 8 of the 12-day celebration, but it’s New Year’s Day, after all. And there’s no better way to welcome in 2020 than with coffee and sweets. Enjoy!
Coffee and Reading: They go together any time of the year. But when reading A CHRISTMAS CAROL, if you don’t have a great cup of coffee at your side — well, all I can say is,”Bah-Humbug!”

Still buying presents?
Well, don’t forget your coffee.
It makes all those activities more fun.

Coffee’s a great companion
— or undecorating —
the Christmas tree.
I’m thinking that next year, I just might
decorate my tree with coffee mugs. 🙂

What? You didn’t know?
Well, it’s true:
Snowmen LOVE coffee too.

Christmas is just a little bit merrier
with a great cup of coffee.
I decided to make this post the first in a series called “12 Days of Christmas Coffee.” I hope you enjoy the series. Merry Christmas!

If we were having coffee together today, I’d be serving you my Folgiers half & half blend. I love Folgiers. I generally enjoy Maxwell House coffee as well. Many of my family members and friends use the Keurig coffee makers, and they’re okay, but the coffee just doesn’t taste as good as it does when I brew my own by the pot.
If we were visiting today, I’d probably tell you about a new series of Christian ministry meetings I’m holding at the local civic center, because they are on the top of my “to-do” list. The first one was last month and went very well. The people who attended said they were very blessed, and the second meeting is scheduled for August 15. So I’m busy, busy, busy trying to get out all the advertising and notifications throughout the local media.
I would probably also tell you that I’m feeling pretty guilty because my house really needs a good cleaning, but telling you about my guilt is probably as far as I would go. I probably won’t do much actual cleaning this weekend. With the meeting to plan, a prayer meeting Sunday evening, and my newest journal project hanging over my head, I just can’t seem to focus on the vacuum, the dust rag, or the dishpan.
I’m sure, if I gave you plenty of refills on coffee and some cookies to go with them, you’d be sure to sympathize with me and agree that the cleaning should come farther down on the list than those other jobs. Oh, and that reminds me: I was going to pick up a new package of chocolate cookies when I was at Wal Mart a couple hours ago, and I forgot!
Not to worry, though. I have enough cookies left from some packages I bought last week — and some M&M candies as well. I’ll be fine.
Well, enjoy your coffee this weekend and be good to yourselves. I’ll try to get around and visit several of you and try out your brew before the weekend’s over as well.

I’m going to close this series with today’s tea party. I hope you all have enjoyed this little jaunt with me into the world of coffee (or tea occasionally). It’s been an effort on my part to de-stress and get back to just having some fun with my website. It has worked pretty well, in that I am more relaxed now. However, duty does call, and being the type of person who has a particularly adamant sense of responsibility, I will get back to doing my serious writing now. Not that I won’t slap something else whimsical up here again soon — but today I MUST work on finishing the 5th edition of my healing book — and one of my novels has been waiting a long time for its revisions and its ‘sprucing up.’
So welcome to my tea party. Have a cookie and a cup of tea on me, and have a happy day.
I mentioned on Day 7 that I might include a post or two about hot tea as well as coffee, so let’s talk tea today. Some people consider tea a British drink. Well, it may have been once upon a time, but for my lifetime, it’s been as American as coffee. I often have both hot tea and coffee in the same day. My favorite, by far, is English Breakfast Tea, but I enjoy many other kinds — including herbal teas. A box like the one pictured — with a huge variety to choose from — is a great prize. And I definitely prefer bags to loose tea. No matter how carefully I strain the loose tea, I still have aggravating leaves in my cup. So you can just call me a “bag lady.”

Ooooh, more stresssssssss! But that’s okay, because I know how to get to my “Happy Place.” Just pick up one of my delightful books by Miss Read, add a fresh-brewed cup of coffee, and I’m there! 🙂

This whole past week of posting mostly nonsense about coffee has been so relaxing I just may do it for another week. I might even throw in a cup of tea for my British friends. I do enjoy a cup of hot tea frequently too.
Whatever your drink of preference, I hope you enjoy your day.
