This Monday morning I did the same ritual, came downstairs at 5am for a coffee and to check my emails.  To me it is the most peaceful time of the day, it’s quiet and this is the time I gather my thoughts for the day ahead.  For the last 2 mornings I thought I caught something out of the corner of my eye but did not really pay too much attention to detail. Then it happened again this morning!!!!  I opened the pantry door and there it was…..a mouse, making himself very much at home between the containers.  I screamed at the top of my voice, (am sure I woke the whole neighbourhood) 

I try to keep my home spotless at all times and grew up with the belief that they are notorious for disease carrying.   I just don’t understand how he got inside.  As I’m typing this, I feel someone or something’s watching me 24/7.  You can bet your sweet ass that I am going to clean everything out in the pantry, and as sad as it is, put down a mousetrap.  Definition of a mouse:- An animal which strews its path with fainting women!  How will I ever get through this day?  HELP!!!

What is that little speck I spy
From the corner of my eye
Surely nothing…just my mind
If I turn what will I find?
Having a coffee in my kitchen
Something’s scratching my intuition
But I feel safe here in my house
OH MY GOD!!!   IT’S A………..MOUSE!!!!!!

Thanks oxo

I have a confession….I am addicted!!!   Cold, hard and totally addicted.  As I am writing this blog, I am surprised that my adrenal glands are even functioning properly.  It normally starts very early in the morning.  All of the warning signs are there the minute I open my eyes!  COFFEE!!  I drink it everyday, I drink it alone, I drink it to feel good, I drink it to start my day. (Yes, I also have a coffee machine in my bedroom upstairs)

I know… is a stimulant.  It makes me motivated and focused for about 45 minutes before that voice in my head starts telling me….I want another!  Coffee is ruining my life people!!  Some might say that coffee is not as destructive as an alcohol addiction… my opinion it’s every bit as bad, or worse.   And I totally need another cup right now!!

The smell of coffee is just enough to make me smile with glee
Just sit me down with a cup or two and I will live happily

The taste enriches my mouth with every sip I take
No I don’t want cookies, brownies, or a chocolate cake,
I just want the beautiful cup,  that I can even make 

I can drink cup after cup, even popping a seam
because you know I won’t explode
after drinking such a large load

After I finish my coffee delight 
I will be up for the entire night

Dancing, and jumping, and wiggling about 
I am purely hyper without a doubt 

I am as crazy as can be
Just after I drink my love, the coffee

So throw that tea away and the soda as well 
I just want my coffee, can’t you tell?

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
