A foggy morning with Godiva Pumpkin Spice
My allergies have been out of control lately. But even with the yellow and crimson leaves falling off the branches and sending their allergens into the air to torture my sinuses, I can’t resist a morning walk with Miss Daisy.
This morning it was misty and brisk. The fog was so thick that I could only see Daisy’s tail swaying in the wind. It looked like a rattlesnake before it strikes its victim. Even still, I knew enough to pull the leash (and Daisy’s head) up when we ventured into heavily trafficked geese areas. I know what Daisy likes to eat. And it’s gross.
We spotted beautiful trees still full of leaves, but not for long I’m afraid.
The sun rising through the mist along the river looked exquisite. I imagined being a sailor on mornings like this, thick with fog, and trying to steer a ship down the blanketed river.
After our morning adventure, I arrived home chilled to the bone and looking forward to a mug of warmth. Lucky for me, the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program sent me some Godiva coffee a few weeks ago.
Up until last year, I hated coffee. I always wanted to be that person who went to the coffee shop, read a book, and sipped on a cup of hot, creamy coffee. But every time I tried coffee, it made me gag.
All that changed last year when we received a Keurig brewer from Dennis’ sister for Christmas. I discovered in time that a few packs of stevia and a healthy dose of creamer is all I need to make coffee irresistible.
I even bought a K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter last week so that I could enjoy the Godiva blend. You just put the grounds in the filter like so…
…and then place the filter into the cup and screw together.
Easy, a little more environmentally-conscious, and more cost-effective than the disposable k-cups.
Oh, and that pumpkin spice- delicious with a bit of French vanilla creamer and 2 packets of stevia in the raw.
It warmed me to the core. You can find me at that coffee shop.
