One of the great things about a hot drink on a cold day is that warming feeling that races through your body from the heat in your hand and then from those first few sips. It doesn’t really matter what hot drink is in the mug because it has the same effect: hot chocolate, tea, apple cider, and coffee it all warms the same.
I am in doors drinking my hot coffee this morning and it is warm, but the January weather rages outside. Inside I can’t see the heat rising from my coffee there isn’t a great enough contrast in temperatures but I know if I cracked open the door it wouldn’t be long until the steam would be visible as it misted off the coffee.
If we were having coffee this frosty cold morning I would tell you that we finally popped the quark on that bottle of ice wine we bought way back in July. We bought it when we visited the Dirty Laundry Winery. It was a Hoar Frost Merlot ice wine 2014. We tried it first in the little chocolate cups but I wanted to see the colour. The little bit I sipped from a wine glass showed a soft rose colour. The flavour was delicious. My only complaint is that the bottle is so small.
If we were having coffee I would also share with you the first batch of cupcakes in 2019.
If we were having coffee I would share that I have a guest post scheduled for the 16th of January. I am very excited to have a guest post this month and I hope you will get a chance to pop by and check it out.
If we were having coffee I would also share the link to a couple posts that I enjoyed this week. This is not an extensive list, it is more like a snippet:
