A Sighing Pot

This morning while getting Sophie's food together I swear I heard my coffee pot sigh longingly...I then realized it had been weeks-WEEKS since I had last taken the time to make a pot. I've had my caffeine fix thanks to Mickey D's, Starbucks, Red Bull and diet soda along the way. Realizing there was no reason not to make some, I went ahead and brewed my first pot of coffee in ages and the smell was heavenly! Since I now have a mug-o-java to sip, figured I'd update here as well.

Life has been hectic these past few weeks with the start of school and all that goes in to it. I have to say that other that a student (not mine) up in a tree outside my window (that class period was shot) and another student urinating outside the portable next door, this year has gotten off to a fantastic start! Life is never dull in middle school!

New-to-Me things:
I found a new lunch option. Actually DH saw it in the newspaper and pointed it out to me.
An apple sandwich!
  • Cut 2 half-inch slices of apple (core out the middle)-I chop up the rest of the apple to eat along with it. You can squeeze some lemon juice on the slices to keep from turning brown.
  • Spread some peanut butter or almond butter on the bottom slice.
  • Then sprinkle with some granola and chocolate chips. Top with the other slice, pressing down gently to make the sandwich.
  • This is my new favorite lunch along with a yogurt!

Another new-to-me thing is the use of different colored highlighters to keep track of the different cable stitches. I stumbled across the idea here -my favorite podcast BTW-and could hardly wait to get a pack a highlighters and try it out. It's great!

I haven't done much knitting other than at SNB, but know things start to settle in a normal rhythm after Labor Day so I'll have more energy/time to knit throughout the week. I have been focused on finishing my reading of The Time Traveler's Wife and am anxious to see the movie! If I don't finish this weekend, definitely will by next weekend.

I do that, too - I won't make coffee at home for weeks (we have really good coffee at work) and then one morning I will, and I can't get over how wonderful the house smells!

And color-coding cables? Great idea! How come I never thought of that before????

The sandwich doesn't get kinda slimy??? And your hands don't get sticky eating it? That would be my only concern.

I don't drink cofeee--but hub does. I'd have to disown him if he paid money for out-of-home coffee--that maker isn't hogging my counter space for nothing!

When I eat the apple sandwich I do usually hold it with a paper towel. But I wouldn't say it was slimy..not at all.

YAY! I'm so glad it works for you, too!

I went to the teacher store on Fredricksburg Road the other day and bought every color of highlighter tape to use on my students' music. It also works well on knitting patterns and it's removable!
