Bleary-eyed, I stumbled out of bed this morning and into the kitchen Only to discover that ... I am OUT OF COFFEE! *SCREEEEEEEEEEEEAM!*
My favorite coffee (so far), and the one I always buy, is Quartermaine House Blend. YUM! But, yesterday, I used my last beans to make coffee for myself and Caroline to drink on the drive to Scarylandia (aka. Virginia).
What to do? What to do?
Like a crack addict looking for his next hit, I searched through the cupboards, where I discovered a previously opened bag of Gevalia Amaretto Coffee. That would have to do.
Surprisingly, it is not undrinkable.
Meanwhile, I need to start thinking about the furniture I want for my study-to-be. I want a hutch-like desk ... possibly about 7 feet tall. Yesterday, while waiting for John and Kristen, Carolyn and I wandered into an Amish furniture store on Duke Street (I think).
My furniture buying policy is that I don't buy crap. If I'm going to make an investment in furniture, I want it to be good, solid wood and I want it to last for my lifetime. I do not want IKEA/Target pressed wood formaldehyde-filled cheap pieces of crap.
The Amish furniture was awesome, but they didn't have exactly what I'm looking for. However, while wandering around the store, I remembered that in Northern Maryland there are a couple of places where Amish (or perhaps Mennonite) furniture makers from Lancaster, PA, sell their wares. Carolyn said she would drive us out there sometime. So, I need to get on the ball and find out where they are.
And, now, I must go get ready to meet people for brunch. *woot*
