A small, but brightly decorated coffee spot makes me wish I still drank coffee, plus was awake to do so in the am. Village coffee shops here come n go, but are always popular places to hang out. I miss that. I quit coffee about 8 years ago.

Do you always visit a coffee spot?

I quit normal coffee a year ago, and now just drink decafe. I never drink coffee outside the home at all, and never visit a coffee spot!

When we are in the states occasionally I'll go to Starbucks and have a Caramel Frappe.

Just Starbucks on the weekend. Beyond that, wherever I can get my morning fill works for me.

Just Starbucks here and there. I prefer going to the independent coffee houses, but the ones in my path have closed (probably from being squeezed out by Starbucks.)

LLcoolJ, I think I remember reading that in a blog post awhile back. Congrats on the accomplishment! I never started the decaf thing at all. I want to hang out in a coffee place, but there's nothing I want to order!

G, But you do seek coffee at places in the AM... I guess Starbucks is eveywhere now! They have wifi too, huh. I used to visit Dunckins every day.

Lynn, That's 3 for Starbucks already! Sad to hear the little guys got pinched out! I hope this sunny little place stays up for awhile. Luckily there's alot of morning foot traffic n retirees around here. Happy coffee place hunting!

i just quit coffee, cold turkey, when I went on a long wilderness hike, quit sugar and beer too, have lost 20 lbs. God is so good.

David, I think coffee is one of the tougher habits to kick, due to the length of the behavior, the attached behaviors (ie coffee shop hanging out) plus terrible caffiene withdrawal head-aches. Then there's trying to feel alert when you're weary... Beer is also hard, as is soda which I quit also.

20 lbs is wonderful! congrats!

What did coffee ever do to you!?!?

At 6:48 PM, Blogger Neo said...

And beer too! Jesus H! What the hell would I ever do if I visited you? Knit???????

Neo, Migraines!

Neo, Sorry, I don't knit! You could walk to the coffee shop n drink what you want. But I won't have any... I'll have green tea.

That is SO CUTE, Snag! What a wonderful-looking little coffee spot. Reminds me that I have a photo of Kelly when she was 6 beside a cute little cuban coffee hut, all decorated up so colorful -- right next to her was one of those signs that read.... "all unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy." :)

Your morph is neat. I thought it was an ATM machine at first. :)

Actually, so funny you mention coffee, as I said out loud to myself only about 30 minutes a go, "I'd really like another coffee, but I'm gonna be a good girl and have some water." And I AM! And get this ----- I went for an apple for dessert over one of those granola bars, which is more like candy. Lunch was 3 frambled eggs. (cross between fried and scrambled.) and one small slice of multi-grain and seed bread.

I'd-a been bouncin' off the proverbial walls if'n I'd succumbed to a coffee. I think I do have a can of decaf here somewhere, I should look for it. Jim mistakingly bought the decaf for me a while back.

Yes, I do have a coffee spot, but go there only once a week, Tuesdays when Kelly has her 2-hour gymnastics class. I have a decaf, and once in a while a biscotti.

JanF, it is a cute-looking decor, n started up after the one across the street in the purple victorian closed, which was the last spot I hang out- because they had coffee house musicians n BBM in there often.
Sounds like a good sign to get parents to watch children!

It is tough to figure out the original from the altered isin't it? Why I set them up altered first alot here-
I thought "frambled eggs" was a Rypo for a sec there- That's what I make too- Mostly formed into patties to eat inside croissants with cheeze . I miss the Microwave for heating those up!
I used to have 3 large coffees per day n still not feel awake! Now I only get sinus head-aches which aren't as bad... Thanks
