Happy National Coffee Day

Coffee is my go-to drink.  I drink it everyday and can drink it morning, noon, and night.  The caffeine does not seem to affect me although sometimes I get a feeling to switch to plain water and I think it is my body telling me I have had enough caffeine for the day. 

I drink my coffee black.  This is good because otherwise I would be racking up calories throughout the day with my drink.  I do not like drinking coffee with milk or sugar, but recently I have broadened my horizons to start tasting things like latte's and cappuccinos.   This is because I have been volunteering at the coffee area of my church and they serve these things.  I figure I need to know about them.  I think at this point I have to be in the right mood to like them.  I just prefer a nice cup of straight joe.

My sister does make an awesome frozen drink with coffee, milk, & sugar.  It is a homemade frappaccino.  It is fantastic, but lots of calories! 

September 29 is National Coffee Day.  So go get a cup of coffee ( some places are having specials on coffee and some places are giving away free cups of coffee)  and enjoy!

What's up with That?

One needs to have a psychic sense if watching your transportation budget.

Case in point:  I needed gas in my car last week.    Since it was near the end of the month, I thought I would try to hold out as long as I could before investing my dollars in a tank.  But it got down to only 2 gallons, so I went and filled up.  The very next day prices in my area dropped 10 cents a gallon. 

Why, oh why can't I have better timing when it comes to putting gas in my car? 
 Today the price is back where it was 3 days ago.  What's up with that?  

Does gas in your area jump around in price or is it just in my area?
