Since then, I've spent many mornings sitting at the counter rehashing weekend activities, families, and just about everything else with the girls here. I consider the owner a personal friend and her smiling face welcomes me whenever I come home from being away.
Of course, the coffee has ruined me for any other kind, even Canada's famous Tim Horton's blend. Kat roasts her own beans and I can smell the roasting from my house some days. I crave her coffee when I'm away, so much so that I've had to invest in a bag of ground coffee to take camping. That and my French press, of course. C'est magnifique!
Today is the last day to submit a comment to qualify for one of my dish towels. Here a close up of the detail on my favourite towel. I've been embroidering like mad these days. I find it very relaxing. One evening I was feeling especially anxious about something or other, and I pulled out my stitching. Within minutes I felt myself calm down. Better than Valium or Ativan I say. Not that I've ever needed to take either of those. No sir.
And here's the busy little bee. I wish bees (& wasps) were as cute in real life. And I've always wanted to see a little day with a smiley face.
To sweeten the pot a little, I will include a small sample of the beans from my favourite cafe with each tea towel, or for non-coffee drinkers, some tea. Tra-la-la...
