Saturday morning plans include coffee

A half hour ago, I listened to the National Anthem play through my open window. Living on a Naval base, it is one of the things of which I never tire.

I did not leave my place yesterday at all, other than to move my trash and recycle bins back up from the curb. I had plans to do get some things done, but just did not feel up to it, as I was not ready to deal with anyone that was out in the Black Friday mess. Today, I have to be up for it.

I have to figure something out to bring for the potluck tonight. I may opt for a pasta salad, or bring the butternut squash dish that I shared here two months ago. That may require less time to make, though I have to go out for the ingredients for making either.

I have to get to the post office to mail out two more postcards--one to the Ukraine, and one to northern Norway. I have to admit that getting notification of one to Norway, actually excited me!

I also need to stop by the credit union, and (of course) a Starbucks for my cup of black coffee. Call the latter one of my guilty pleasures in life. I know I can make it at home less expensively, but there is something about the ritual for me.

Have a great Saturday!

You are so right,Though we can make coffee at home,it is something special when we can go out to indulge in our'' guilty pleasures.''

emoticon :smile: I do not even get anything other than a cup of black coffee, as a rule. I do not like highly sugared coffee drinks that seem to be the rage. Yet, I still spend $2 on a black coffee. Some think that is foolish. LOL

And there I thought that you would have all the ingredients you needed in your freezer! Enjoy your coffee. I think it is the "people watching" that makes the ritual special?

I obviously haven't gotten out this morning. LOL It's just a few minutes before noon. And I am going to swing buy the store and buy a ready-made dessert. To hell with cooking! LOL

A treat is a treat no matter what it is. A plain black coffee or a speciality brand. On a Saturday if you did not do it yourself it is a treat. Just enjoy.

Good luck with your Saturday plans. I would go crazy if I stayed in the house all day.

Saturday is nearly over with only 15 minutes left. Perhaps Sunday's will be better.
