Coffee Talk




It's a cloudy Monday morning, with a chance of rain in the afternoon, but with a week ahead of sunshine and warmer temperatures, I look forward to getting out and doing some spring clean up in my yard. A little rain in the spring is not a bad thing, because I know these showers in April mean flowers in May! I was up bright and early this morning to bake some yummy cranberry orange muffins to enjoy with coffee in my new flowered mug; perfect for spring. Sometimes it's the little things that start a week right.

Coffee talk this morning is about a quiet weekend, spent reading, watching a little tv and taking a long walk. It was Master's weekend too, so this golfing household was riveted to the final rounds of beautiful Augusta National Golf Club. The blooming azaleas were a welcome sight for this northerner's flower starved eyes. I am happy to report though, my wild daffodils that I planted in the fall are coming up and will be blooming soon at the edge of the woods.

I also watched some baseball ( the Tigers are 6-0 to start the season), started a new mystery series that I love and am now halfway through ( Jane Whitefield books) and was riveted by Call The Midwife on PBS. Downton Abbey may be over for the year, but the great BBC shows keep coming and I am finding this season of Call The Midwife very good, even without Nurse Lee. The other characters have stepped up remarkably to fill the void.

Happy Monday!



  1. Hi Vicki, your coffee and your homemade muffin look so good! It's a perfect way to start the week off! Hope you have a nice day. New makeup is always fun too.

  2. Looks like a nice coffee morning! I think Call the Midwife is SO good this year. I can't wait to watch this week's episode on the DVR!

  3. I love Call The Midwife, too, and agree with you that this season is great!

  4. Hope you enjoyed you muffin with your new mug! It's a perfect start to a day. We've been having a healthful egg McMuffin made at home lately. I love the show Midwives and was able to watch the previous season on a blog that has all the links to the BBC's show.

  5. It's so true that something like coffee in a pretty mug, and fresh baked muffins can be such a happy start to the day!

  6. Haven't see this latest season of Call The Midwife - can't wait!!

  7. You do such a great job of reminding us to enjoy the simple things and the quiet moments in our lives! Thank you for that!
