More Coffee Screwups

image

This morning I made coffee and got in the shower. The toasty aroma greeted me warmly when I came out of the bathroom. I went to get a cup.

CURSES BATMAN! No coffee pot under the strainer basket. Coffee had overflowed and was all over the counter.
i had to go get my bath towel to clean it  up.

In my own defense, our coffee maker is very complicated. You have to be a mechanical engineer to disassemble/assemble it to put the filter in. Then program it for how many cups, and how strong, if you’re using the built-in bean grinder. Then enter launch codes, authorization codes, retina scan, fingerprint scan and you’re ready.

It’s very complicated for someone who wakes up as brain-dead as me.

Hopefully I got it now, and I’m done screwing up.

Oh, and I’m glad it’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight I’m going to see Mad Max in 3D while the Wife goes to a jazz thingy at some restaurant with a bunch of friends. I abhor jazz. It sounds random to me.

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coffee Disaster

This morning coffee went all over the countertop. I’m late from cleaning it up. (and sleeping an extra half hour)

Last night I had a dream a volcano went off. I was with a bunch of people and I looked up the mountain and saw black smoke coming out of the ground in two places. I yelled “LOOK!” and everybody looked and it blew up. We started running and rocks and dirt was landing all around us. 
And I dreamed I was sorting coins in alphabetical order.

Have a good day

Finally Friday

I’m glad it’s Friday.
Monday I start a school for work. I’ll be in Miami all next week.
Hurricane season hasn’t even started and there’s a storm out there. Tropical Storm Ana.

Yesterday it was nice and sunny. Today should be the same. I’m riding the scooter to work for the first time in over a week.

I ordered an espresso tool from eBay. It is like one my Mother-In-Law has.  I love it. I am excited.

It has a scooper on one end and a tamper on the other. Greatest thing since sliced bread!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Friday Is Coming!

It’s Thursday, but that means that it’s Friday on the other side of the international date line! And Friday is speeding aroundthe globe, headed our way!

It’s supposed to rain this weekend, and while I’m normally not a rain fan, we really need it. Yesterday the weather was showing some major rain between Miami and Havana. Now it’s not looking like so much rain will be coming  :-(

I got a new backpack, very similar to my old backpack and I’m happy with it.

And now it’s time for me to make lunch, and get ready  to head off to work. And  get cuppa coffee #2!

Enjoy your day!

The First Post Entitled “Friday”

I almost typed “Friday” for the title, There’s probably several that have already been given the same name.

But it is Friday! Hooo-Ray!

Today I have to take part 2 of the real estate test. I do not have high confidence on passing. I found the section on contracts most confusing and contradictory at times.

Tomorrow is mini golf with friends followed by food and American football. Hopefully that’ll be it for weekend plans. I just want to veg out.

Here’s a tip. Get some of the cheap hot chocolate mix that comes in the pouches. Make it using coffee instead of hot water. Super good!

Have a good weekend!

Cigars Are More Like Pie & Coffee Than Cigarettes & Tobacco

image

I miss my Cigars. I haven’t smoked a cigar in probably 8 or 10 weeks.

Cigars are more like pie and coffee than cigarettes and tobacco. I used to smoke cigarettes when I was in the Navy, I quit when I got out. With cigarettes, you gotta smoke a cigarette every 10 minutes or you go crazy. Cigars, if you’re on a plane or in  a meeting, no big deal. You never NEED a cigar like a cigarette smoker needs a cigarette.

Nope, cigars are more like pie and coffee. After you have a good slice of pie and a cuppa great coffee, you sit back and think, “Dang, that was good. I look forward to when I get to do that again.” You don’t become addicted and need pie and coffee every 10 minutes.

Exactly like a cigar.

Happy Thursday

Happy Thursday! Almost the weekend! Above is a picture I took just now, because the picture makes the post! Or ruins it, as may be the case here.

I got nothing planned to post about. The weather’s been good, works been sucking it and I’m living for my time off.

I think my Windows Laptop died. I’m pure Android now. On my laptop, the display is too dark to see, I can pull the plug and reboot it, but after the screen saver kicks in, and then it goes to sleep, it won’t come back when I move the mouse. If you stand at the right angle, you can see the display is there, just too dark.

Tomorrow is Friday, unless you live on the  far side of the date line, then it’s Friday already! YEay!

Rainy Winter Friday

Oh what a difference a day makes!

Yesterday was sunny and hot, today is cloudy  and cold.. It rained hard yesterday afternoon and last night, today, promises more of the same.

Today I was going to load up the kayak and head for East End to try and find the wreck I saw from the air. However the weather isn’t good for such ventures. So, at the moment, I don’t know what I’ll do today.

I’ll just have another cuppa coffee,and give it a think!

Happy FRIDAY!!!

Harder To Wake Up

image

It occurred to me this morning that it is getting harder and harder to wake up. Yesterday I skipped my exercises and slept an extra 45 minutes. Last night, went to sleep around 9:30, slept good, but still had to wrench myself out of bed with a crowbar. No problems once I’m up, it’s just the act of getting up that seems harder.
Why? Tell me why!

Have a gooood day!

Two Days Till Thursday

Well, Monday is gone. now it’s Tuesday. payday is day after tomorrow.

Last night we went to dinner at Macabuca. It was pretty good food and there was a nice sunset.

image

Yesterday in town it rained hard almost all day. West Bay didn’t get drop. I couldn’t go on my beach lunch yesterday because of the rain and I was on the scooter. Now it’s nice and clear but I wonder it’s going to rain again today. 30 percent chance haha!

We’ve had a new coffee maker now for about a week. I suppose it makes acceptable coffee. It is one of those Keurig kinds with the canister.

My studying has been going extremely slow. I’m afraid I’m going to have to get up even earlier in order to study and accomplish anything.

That’s it for today. Have a terrific Tuesday!
