I usually buy ground, regular drip, my grinder is broke.
This time of year, there are often Holiday Blends available, and many flavored coffees - do you drink flavored coffee?
I do like some, but not nutty flavors in coffee, and not vanilla alone either.
Do you enjoy special blends? Yes
How do you take your coffee? Black.
Decaf? Absolutely not.
Do you prefer drinking from a nice thick mug, or a matched cup and saucer?
I like a nice thick mug.
Winter and Holidays - PLEASE be descriptive! Your pal will need this information to be sure to put together a package you will enjoy!
What is your favorite part of Winter?
I like when we get a sometimes rare snow storm that would prevent travel so I could stay cuddled up inside. I love the fresh snow, and the crisp bite in the air. I don't like a whole winter of that, but in December and January, it's OK.
Do you celebrate a holiday in December, and if so, which holiday? Christmas
If you celebrate Christmas, do you put up a tree?
I haven't in a long time, but I might this year.
Would you enjoy items related to the holiday, or would you prefer a Winter themed package?
I really would prefer a WINTER themed package.
Do you collect anything?
Shells, seaglass, and lately, yarn.
Are there any holiday or winter-themed items (Snowmen, Angels, Snoflakes, Santas, etc) that you collect? I like Snowmen.
Do you wear scarves? Mittens? Hats? Yes to all.
What is your favorite holiday or winter treat?
Please share a favorite Winter or Holiday memory.
hmmm...going back to when we were little kids and had a hill behind the wooded area behind our house, we used to sleigh ride, so much fun. When I went back to the neighborhood as a grown up..that hill didn't seem so big anymore, but man, we had a blast when we were kids!
