Today is my birthday.
They don't give you the day off at work, so I burned a vacation day.
Actually I took yesterday off to take Scherie to her last visit with the surgeon and decided to take today also.
Early in the day I went to my sons store where he is remodeling and did some electrical work for him which I will finish today. Then we went to the appointment where we reviewed her MRIs and progress and we thanked the surgeon and God.
After that, our very close friends, who had moved to the other side of the mitten (and were in town for a week of training due to his long deserved promotion) stopped by to visit.
We grilled some ribeyes and had a really nice visit.
I've just hit print on a letter to my son and Scherie is about to wake up whether she knows it or not as I must be fed.
I'm drinking a cup of coffee as I type this.
I am not satisfied with the blend.
It is Folger's Black Silk.
I've been drinking various French Roasts over the years but have become disillusioned of late.
I am not a fan of Starbucks, and am not rich enough to afford Dunkin' Donuts or Tim Hortons (my favorite purchased brew) on a regular basis.
I'm leaning towards 8 O'Clock which my sister in law drinks, but brews so weak I can't taste the coffee. I haven't brewed a full strength pot of it yet.
It seems like nothing I brew smells like COFFEE when I bring the mug to my lips.
