Coffee Exchange update

I joined a Coffee exchange but have not heard from my partner. She maybe MIA. I will wait until next week and then I will let the exchange hostess know.

The exchange hostess asked everyone to share their favorite coffee mugs. I have two. One I have only had a few months but find I use a lot now and the glass one I have had a very long time. They both keep the coffee nice and hot. The brown and blue one is about to take a trip. I am being sent to work in Lousiana on Sunday so this cup is packed. I hate the plain cups in the extended stays we are housed in.

Also, we were asked to show our favorite coffee spot. I live in a town with one stop light, a blinking light at the end of my street, a grocery store, and 2 pizza shops. They also have 2 coffee shops that are as different as night and day. One is a combination religious gift shop and coffee shop. They have a comfy sofa and lots of chairs and tables. They have a few pieces of dessert and bagels if you get their early. Every time you go in, there is a different person working so you never get to know the staff.

The other shop has one table and two chairs, lots of delicious desserts and of course, coffee. This second shop is called Main Street Sweets and is owned by two very nice ladies, Wendy and Jennifer.

I truly like the atmosphere of this shop, it is a 5 minute walk away and you can buy bite size desserts for 50 cents. So if you have not guessed, my favorite shop is Main Street Sweets. I went down to take these pictures today and get a cup of their Gingerbread Latte and found myself walking back not only with the Latte but a piece of some delicious pecan something. Made the trip worthwhile.

The exchange also asked that you complete a questionnaire on your blog or the exchange blog.
Here is the answers to my questionnaire:
1. WHOLE BEAN OR GROUND: ground. It is easier for me since I am in hotels most of the time.
2. FULLY-LOADED OR DECAF: Fully loaded of there any other kind?
3. REGULAR OR FLAVORED: I prefer Flavored.
4. HOW DO YOU DRINK YOUR COFFEE: Lots of half and half with Splenda
5. FAVORITE COFFEE EVER: Creme Brulee..Unfortunately, I have not found a place near me that sells it.
7. FAVORITE TREATS TO HAVE WITH YOUR COFFEE: Oatmeal or Peanut Butter cookies
9. YARN/FIBER YOU LOVE: Natural fibers
10. YARN/FIBER YOU HATE: Synthetics
11.WHAT'S ON YOUR NEEDLES: I have three projects going, socks-fingerless mittens-a purse
12. FAVORITE COLORS: Everything
14. ANYTHING YOU REALLY LOVE, REALLY DON'T LIKE, OR JUST NEED TO GET OFF YOUR CHEST: I have to go back to work and it is not fair. I will have to fight with the masses to fly home for Christmas and then back to work the day after New Year.

Also, I am looking for a wife for my son...he has a great job, loves to travel and have fun. No stuck in the muds need to apply.

Until next time...have a great day

Can he knit? M-m-m-m, I heard there's a website for Mothers to look for dates (or rather future wife) for their son. Interesting concept. But my daughter is already married with 7 kids, LOL.

Your favorite coffee shop sounds nice!

Love the pics of the shop. Fun meme, too! Hmmmm does your son know you're wife-shopping for him? lol How will you top that next Christmas?

Louise said...

Unfortunately he can not knit but if that is the only problem, he will be knitting by the New Year. No, he does not know I am wife-shopping for him. I think that it is best that he does not find out. LOL

Louise I can't believe that you really put that out there for the world to see. You crack me up! You told me that you were looking for a wife for your son.... I didn't know that you were telling everyone.
