Desperate Coffee Drinker...

GRRRR! My trusty coffee maker, bit the dust... I have had no time to pick up a new one,{ while getting ready for, and doing the show, and then the weather took a turn... so glad it waited til Monday!} so... I have been pretty creative, and obsessed, about getting my morning Starbucks down, this last week! My little ironstone pitcher is filled up with water, thrown in the micro, for 4 minutes, grounds are put into the old coffee maker's holder, then placed over my favorite, huge ironstone coffee mug, and I slowly pour the boiling water through, and groggily wait for the wonderful potion, to flow into my mug... and it does...and it has kept me going, through this last week...
The roads are crud, so it will have to do, for another day... I glanced at the old copper tea kettle, I have on an old cupboard, in the kitchen... It is so beaten up, yet so sweet... It's close to 200 years old, and I wonder how many times, a groggy woman like me, filled it up with water, and waited.... Waited for the water to boil, so she could get her morning tea... I'd say, thousands... So, I guess, I'm in good company...
'til next time,
Barb C.

It is funny that you commented about being a gatherer. I have said that before. I rather like the term. Although I think I am leaning towards hoarder. The one thing that I know is that I gotta have alot of stuff that makes me happy surrounding me. PS, not a coffee drinker but use an OLD pot on the stove to make it for my hubby. He likes it better than the new one he got for Christmas. Stay warm.

Barb, sounds like you're like me. Not having my morning coffee can be frightening. To me and others! LOL! Love your creativity!
hugs,

This is kind of frightening. Maybe I'll just go out & buy an extra just in case. By the way, Starbucks instant coffee is really good. It surprised me but I swear it really is. Thank heavens, I do have that. Jan
