Never wait until afternoon for the first cup of coffee

I have a keurig on my desk at work and usually keep the little keurig cups  close by…I'm apparently out.  He put a new box of dark roast Starbucks beside the Keurig at home this morning..but I remembered putting a couple of K-cups in my purse yesterday.  Unfortunately I didn't remember using the K-cups yesterday…. Never fear, I had instant Folgers coffee just for times like this.  I had a headache of epic proportion…I knew it was a caffeine headache but I just did not want to drink instant Folgers coffee.  I knew I had to do it and I did and it was exactly what I expected…blech.  I'm home now…decided to make myself a good cup, sit down and blog.

4th of July is my second favorite holiday…I'm a patriotic sap.  Flags and bands and soldiers and parades make me very emotional.  I love to feel it…yet sometimes I hate being the only one crying thru the National Anthem.  Next year on the 4th of July, we will probably be living in Missouri…I really wanted to attend the Yankee Doodle Pops Concert at the State Capitol in Des Moines last night with 100,000 of my best friends…but he needed to get some things done around the house and so did I…so I sucked it up and didn't whine.  Went to work at 10:00 this morning so didn't get to attend the Newton 4th of July parade…the location of the Newton fireworks this year has changed to a different park and I heard that there are going to be more ground displays than actual fireworks in the sky…bummer…doubt I want to get mixed up in the chaos of everyone trying to find their way around the new venue..so…I'm just going to listen to the Sandy Patty version of the National Anthem and be done with the holiday.  If you haven't heard her arrangement…you are missing something spectacular.  You don't have to love or hate Sande Patty and christian music to enjoy the head to toe shivers when she hits the high notes!

Until next time….
