Cinnamon Roll coffee? Gingerbread coffee? Autumn Harvest. Can it get any better than this?
I met Debby at Mimi's at East Chase for lunch today, and she had a surprise for me - several, in fact. She and Mike are making sure I'll not lack for good coffee experiences. I think it's a conspiracy. There were some samples of these seasonal coffees with a beautifully-wrapped piece of candy that I hated to unwrap - for about 2 minutes.
Then for my birthday - I may can stretch it out to Christmas at this rate - she gave me a holder for all those little K-cups that are so hard to store. She must know that when reach in my cabinet, I sometimes have a cascade of little plastic cups tumbling out when I'm searching for what I want.
Mama got a candy too.
She's such a good cousin. Thanks, Debby. And also for making me laugh a lot at lunch. We kind of planned our Thanksgiving dinner that we're going to put together. I can't wait. There aren't too many of us. We're both husband-less at the moment, and my children are scattered all over the country, but we have her boys, Hunter and Clark, and Mama, and hopefully another cousin Bobby will join us and take us exploring around the lake where his parents had a cabin in the 50s and 60s. We'll have way too much good food and stay up late talking. We'll see if we can prod Mama's memory for some family secrets. Maybe the promise of that would lure Sherry and David to come for dinner. Mike will be in Issaquah for Emily and Ryan's Thanksgiving feast. Wish I could be both places.
When I got home, there was a For Sale sign in my front yard. I knew it would be there, but it still surprised me. Tomorrow is the day I spend the whole day wrapping up loose ends (hiding things) and getting ready just on the off chance that someone will come look in my corners and cabinets and behind the shower curtain and in the closets. Ugh.
