crazy hot

Saturday February 28, 2009

Sometimes on Saturday mornings we go to Kopplin’s to get an almond latte and currant scone for me and mocha and almond croissant for Jake.

Kopplin’s has the best coffee in St. Paul.

I like my drinks really really really hot. Hotter than boiling? Not possible.

I waited in the car while Jake went in. When she handed him our drinks she said, “Almond latte. Crazy hot.”

It was delicious.

Allisa made me this felted coffee cup holder — very eco-friendly!

Yes, that is “We are the Champions” playing in the background.

Yes, Judy did not listen to us when we said “Come in” and that is embarrassing. Usually, she is pretty obedient but when it comes to snow…apparently she thinks she can do what she wants!

Oh, no you didn’t Judy!

yesterday was spring and today is a blizzard

Kitchen Rooster

I have a rooster piggy bank in my kitchen. Do you?

Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Isn’t it fabulous?!

Bryan, Chanda and Fiona stopped by this morning to drop off some loaves of bread from Breadsmith — just because that is what they do. They are so nice.

I am currently obsessed with cinnamon toast and hope I can restrain from eating the entire loaf myself. Have already had three pieces this afternoon.

Then two former co-workers, Stacy and Kate, came over for lunch and we had a lovely time catching up!

Jake, Judy and I went for a walk after they left and the weather was just perfect.

They say it is going to snow again (which I don’t mind at all) but today felt like Spring and the tulips on my dining room table made it even more so.

It is good to be happy!

Judy tooted when she jumped up on the table to see what I was doing – it happens all the time but still makes me laugh! She is so funny!
