Coffee Makes My Days Delicious

This post is part of the YummyMummyClub.ca and HALLS Vitamin Drops “Daily Dose of Delicious” program. HALLS Vitamin Drops has asked me to share my “Daily Dose of Delicious” with you. I received compensation as a thank you for my participation. This post reflects my personal opinion about the product, provided by the sponsors

With five kids, a blog that keeps me busy full time and a cross country move looming, taking care of me often gets pushed to the sidelines. I make sure to get the kids fed and off to school, hubby off to work but more often than I like to admit its 9 am before I finally have a chance to breathe, never mind sit down. As soon as I can, I set up my one indulgence for the day, my “Daily Dose of Delicious” if you will.

That one step in my daily routine helps center me before I tackle whatever the day holds in store. What is my indulgence? It’s one really good cup of coffee. I take the time to brew it the way my Dad taught me – using freshly ground beans, boiling hot water and perking it in a glass French Press. While it steeps I find myself leaning in to get a nose-full of that fresh coffee scent.

When my coffee has brewed long enough I give it a quick stir, press it and pour the coffee into the biggest cup I can find. I just love the feeling of warmth and comfort that I get when I wrap my hands around the mug and take a sniff. Into it I add one sugar, and real cream then I savour that first sip. I make an event of that first cup coffee, enjoying every nuance of the experience before settling in to get a day’s work done.

Coffee time is also twitter time, another “Daily Delicious” moment in my day. While enjoying my coffee, I catch up with the latest news in the twitterverse, watch a little local news and sometimes even find myself putting my feet up to enjoy an episode of daughters favourite show with her snuggled in close.

  1. Great post Julia! My mother has always enjoyed her first cup of coffee in the morning too. She has a ‘don’t talk to her rule’ until she has her first cup of coffee! lol! I never got into the coffee habit, but the way you describe it, it sounds SO delicious! But I do like iced coffee. Weird, I know! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you Angie for stopping by. I have to wait til my kids are off to school most days before indulging, but it makes it that much more enjoyable. I have a bit more time to sit and enjoy before running off to do something else.

  2. And I forget to say that I loved reading about your daily dose! (applevalleygirl was me! I just updated my profile! )
