I've switched back to coffee in the mornings ever since my sister convinced me to order the Gevalia coffee pot and Breakfast Blend coffee. I don't know why I ever hesitated - it was $14.95 for a nice coffee maker and 2 pounds of coffee.
Until I got the Gevalia stuff, I'd had a series of cheapo Wal-mart coffee makers that made absolutely horrible coffee. Rather than trying to solve the problem, I'd just stopped making coffee at home. Now I make a 4-cup pot each morning, which fills up my thermal travel mug and gives me a few extra swigs for home.
Today I carefully wrote out instructions for my husband so that he could make coffee for himself, too. I don't blame him for not knowing how; I never could figure out the whole measurement and coffee-to-water ratio thing either until I had a measuring scoop and some directions.
In other news, thank you to everyone who voted for my Kaboodle pages! I just found out yesterday that I've won a $100 spa gift certificate in their BlogHer promotion. Woohoo! I haven't even received it yet and I'm already researching local spas and trying to figure out what kind of massage I want to get.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
