A Cup Of Java Anyone?

Taking a break from too much time in front of the computer today and enjoying a cup of java. I found myself daydreaming and watching the birds outside my window. What a pleasant break in the day.

The "new" antique cup & saucer in the photograph was a gift from my son and his wife. Isn't it lovely? A very nice, and much loved, addition to my collection.

Just thought I would share the recipe for the afternoon java.

Fireside Coffee
2 cups coffee creamer
1 1/2 cups hot cocoa mix
1 1/2 cups instant coffee
1 1/2 cups sugar (I add less)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Mix 2-3 tablespoons with one cup of hot water and enjoy.

I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee.

  1. Your posts are nice breaks from working at the computer!! My fireside coffee is all gone, but you've inspired to take a break with a cup of tea and see if I can spot any birds out there. Thanks!! :)

  2. Sounds yummy. I might have to try that tomorrow. The mug is just beautiful!
