{virtual} coffee

Good Morning!
If we were meeting for coffee today, I'd ask you to come over to my house.  Let's sit on my comfy couch and talk for a while.  I think there's 1 or 2 homemade donutsleft, would you like one?  I'm still on my chai tea latte kick, and I'll even pull out my new kitchen gadget, a milk frother, so we can have foamy, frothy milk with our chai tea latte.

If we were sitting down this morning, I'd have to share that my aunt came to town for a visit over the weekend.  It was so nice to see her and spend time together.  We had a break in the rain and were able to enjoy some sun and fresh air.  We visited the local outdoor mall and ran into one of my students and his family.  It was fun to watch my little guy be able to play and run in the fresh air.  He seems to be on the mend, I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Here's a picture of my dad and my aunt dancing together during our quick glimpse of sun on Saturday!

I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with my husband's work schedule for winter.  He's been able to be home a little more.  I snapped this picture the other night.  My boys were hanging out together, doing the nightly reading.

I'd also have to share that I'm buried under report cards right now.  They go home on Friday and I've made some progress, but I'm starting to feel the crunch!

The last thing I'd share is that I've been cooking and baking up a storm (partly procrastination and avoiding report cards!)  I got a new cookbook last week when I was at Williams-Sonoma.  I've made a couple recipes, and they were both a hit!  I'm looking forward to next week and trying another one.  The book is called One Pot and its worth checking out!

Before I rush back to report cards, I'd ask what you've been up to.  Any news, any special visitors to your home?  Thanks for stopping by!

For another cup, head to Lucky13 or Grey Umbrella.  Have a great week, let's make a date for next week!


  1. Actually, I've had a BUNCH of visitors lately! It's nice to have them...but I'm also looking forward to some "normal" time again. Glad you had a good time with your aunt!

  2. Yes, please on the donut! Your aunt looks like a lot of fun. I don't miss report card time {I taught for 9 years}

  3. i can always find so many other things to dow hen i should be doing something else, i am famous for it, so i feel ya with the report cards! what do you think of your milk frother? i've thought about buying one but not sure if i would use it or if it's just another useless gadget to sit in my drawer? thanks for coffee! : )

  4. i will take a donut this morning! good luck finishing the report cards!

  5. Amy-
    I love the milk frother! Its fast and easy and makes my tea lattes just that much better! Less excuses for stopping at Peet's on the way to work!

  6. Hi! Thanks for the thoughtful comment you left! I really appreciate the prayers for my brother. I'm now following you and will see you around. Have a wonderful evening!
