Saturday Photo Hunt

Today's Photo Hunt word is one of my favorite words!!

C O F F E E 
Click here for a list of Photo Hunt words

Mom here: I have loved coffee for as long as I can remember. Currently the brands above are
in my pantry..(not stored on the bed).  Sometimes I add cinnamon to my coffee.

 My Dad used to jokingly say,
my Mom put it in my bottle when I was a baby...No true but I will admit I come from a long
long line of coffee drinkers.  No family gathering is complete with a a pot of coffee brewing.
No matter the time of year. 

The perfect mug makes the coffee taste better too.  Here are a few of our favorite coffee mugs
l-r our bird mugs, Grove Park Inn mugs, Tryon Palace and The Swag mugs
and Mom and Dad mugs our Daughter and sil gave us for Christmas last year.

Of course the perfect mug and the perfect coffee is complete without the perfect coffee maker and
grinder.

Carrots: The rest of the story

On April 5th mom was trying to convince me to eat a carrot
click here if you missed that saga.  I had a hard time convincing her I don't like my food to be technicolor and most of all I'm a meat eater!
Below you will see me plundering* through Mom recycling bag that she takes to the grocery store every Thursday

*too bad plundering isn't a Saturday Photo hunt word..this would be a great Photo.

Actually I was hot on the trail of something 

It had an earthy scent..you know kinda like catnip...
I gave several bags a sniff...

then lo and behold out of no where I found it...
the carrot bag OMCs I love essence of carrot
probably better than essence of catnip
I rolled all over it trying to absorb every last ounce 
orange aroma
Hey mom next time just give me the carrot bag w/o carrots...
it is divine...
Oh and I learned another interesting fact about the word carrot from my very smart friend Bertie the most handsome Wirehaired Fox Terrier.  He was recently translating one of his scientific papers from French to English... he said French for a 'core' of rock translates back into English as a 'carrot'! 
Bertie you are so smart and funny!!  Thanks for sharing this tidbit Bertie I had no idea I'd be able to use it.

We hope to have some flowers by next Friday!
