981. laverne

Let me be clear, Laverne and I are not friends. She is the neighborhood cat who began visiting us last summer. She started by simply startling me (and giving me the heebie jeebies every time). Then she tried to make things better by bringing us freshly killed mice. I think she brought us about 8 in one week. Sometimes still moving. Now she just hangs out here, and shows up every time I am in the yard. I have no idea why she bothers me so much. She’s about the same size as our old cat, Mocha (who I kind of loved). She is a fine, designery and somewhat aesthetically pleasing color of black…but she just annoys the heck out of me. After last week’s rain I went out to check the garden, and there she was…in my coffee picture! At least she had the good sense to pose.

980. coffee cohorts

My coffee drinking friends at the studio. Just trying to get everyone in on the action before the project ends. 4:00 on a gloomy, busy and distracted Thursday afternoon.

979. orange and black

In reality, it’s my studio coffee mug on top of my filing cabinet. But in my imagination it’s my inner happy dance that Alex is headed to Oregon State University in the fall. Not that I am happy she’s leaving, but I am delighted for the adventure that is ahead for her. I will wear orange and black, but I don’t think I will ever be able to wear a shirt that says “Beaver Mom.” I do have my limits.

Can I say that Koreans know how to make deliciously addictive hot cafe mocha? Yes, please! With whipped cream on top of course!”

Coffee at the local coffee shop surely sounds nice. A good way to start out a nice Spring day! Support your local everything!”

976. 3:00 pm

I had to give up and give in. The experiment is over. I need more than three cups of coffee in a day. I need more than three cups in the morning. I suspect I need three cups just to be able to speak. Pathetic, but truthful.

975. 9:30 am

Second cup at the studio. This is where I (foolishly) believed this is all I would need for the day. What was I thinking?

974. 6:45 am

I (foolishly) thought I could cut my coffee down to two cups a day. This was day two. My early morning strategy was to use the French Press, which only made two cups (one would be shared with Steve, because I am the sharing kind of wife), rather than the drip, which offered me a never ending cup of coffee. I knew I was in trouble at 7:45 am.
