Yes we can coffee!


The holidays are behind us, all presents are unwrapped, the Christmas tree dismantled and decorations stored away, we even got rid of the pine needles on the rug, "les buches de Noël" made room for "les gateaux des rois" at the bakery, winter sales have started today. All signs the new year has begun. But let me get back to the holidays one more time. Right before we left for the holidays, I found this present in our mailbox: the Obama "Yes we can coffee". It was definitely this season's coolest present! So, thank you, Liz, for thinking of me. It was MUCH appreciated! When I told M. I would brew some coffee from it on the 20th of January, which is not only inauguration day but also K.'s birthday, she got a little upset. She thinks we should leave the package as is. It's way too special to be cut open, she said. Initially a Hilary-fan she turned into a real Obama-adept. A couple of days ago, she spent some time in her room working on an Obama-report. Not because she had to for school. No, just because...

As to me, I'm a bit puzzled now whether to open the package or not? I have a little less than two weeks left to make up my mind...

Stukjes of "cursiefjes" die verdienen om eens gebundeld te worden.

I can't decide whether or not to open my own bag either! I'm glad you liked it -- when I saw it I thought of you. My favorite part is the blend of Hawaiian, Indonesian and Kenyan coffees. I wish I could be sharing a cup with you next Tuesday. Instead I'll be here alone (Tom and Adam are leaving for 2 weeks in Sydney on the 19th). xo, L

Oh, Liz, I agree. It would be so nice to have a cup of coffee together -- anytime! Adam and Tom are lucky - Sydney doesn't sound too bad!
