That scent of coffee is mixed with a cocoa smell this morning. It is the perfect time of year to mix a little hot chocolate into the coffee. It isn’t anything to fancy; there is no whip cream or chocolate drizzle and there is no chocolate sprinkles either. It is just a nice simple flavour change to in the coffee mug. In December you can’t go wrong with hot chocolate. Next time I think we should try our coffee with After Eight Hot Chocolate mixed in. Would you like a shortbread melting snowman cookie?
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have been working a bit on the Christmas House. Some of you might remember me sharing this project last in July. Progress has been slow, but here are a few pictures. As you will see Mr. and Mrs. Claus are checking out the progress on the new joint workshop (upstairs) and bake shop (downstairs).
If we were having coffee I would tell you that we have had snow since November 2. It snowed in October a couple times but it melted, this November snow stayed. Looks like it is going to be another long winter. The kids love it: snow forts, sledding, snowmen… They love the hot chocolate after a long outside adventure. We have a coffee crisp hot chocolate right now and it is truly delicious. The holiday season is on us now.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that November was Family Violence Prevention Month and one of the events was Go Purple. These were two of my Go Purple images that I shared on November 21. I was also lucky enough to attend the Diverse Voices Conference in November. It is such a great Domestic Violence Conference with great speakers, information, wonderful networking opportunities, and an environment full of people passionate about making a difference in the realm of domestic violence.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that we put up our Christmas decorations last weekend and later today we are planning to make our gingerbread house. The holiday fun doesn’t stop there. We have plans to make a Christmas cake next week and of course there is sledding, Santa pictures and Christmas light looking.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am still thinking of trying my hand at post-a-day blogging starting in January and part of that plan is to be at coffee share more than once a month. Now, if we were having coffee I would ask you how you have been since we had coffee last?
Weekend Coffee Share is hosted by Eclectic Ali.
