Coffee Time Sketch

It is cloudy this morning.  Not hot and pretty nice out.  I thought I would post my sketch before going to sit on the porch.

For Scavenger Hunt 492

Number 9, coffee - sketched on my iPad with Brushes and my fingers

I have to say that I drink quite a bit of coffee.  I have had to drink decaf for quite a few years so I am not as addicted as I once was.  I still enjoy a good cupa!  Gene gets my coffee ready to go in the coffee machine so I just turn it on when I get to the kitchen and by the time I fix my rice cake snack, the coffee is brewed.  I should say our rice cakes.  I have Gene a bit addicted to the snack in the morning.  I put cream cheese, peanut butter, coconut oil and dried cranberries (or raisins or blueberries or bananas) on them.

He has made the coffee for most of our lives.  I tease him that when he travels that I just miss my coffee in the morning, not him!

Yesterday evening I was drinking my coffee and checking Telegram on my iPad while Gene watched the news on TV.  I started sketching my coffee in my glass thermos cup, (thanks, Brandon) and then remembered that "coffee" was on the Hunt list.  Nice.  Gene likes his coffee in a thermos cup to stay hot.  I do not like to drink out of metal or plastic, so I really like these glass mugs.  I prefer any glass/ceramic mug to plastic or metal.  I do like to drink cokes out of cans but that is it.  Hmmm.

A new Scavenger Hunt starts today, better go get the list.

Painting desire, where are you?????

Nice sketch of the glass coffee mug. I like that Gene makes you coffee. Jerry makes himself a big pot of regular that he drinks all day long. I make my one cup of decaf in a French press. I like making it that way. Enjoy yours!

Joan, thanks. Coffee brings so many memories. Parents, coworkers, artists, etc. I feel a post coming on. Ha.

I need to send you some of Shay and Lindz' coffee. Do you have a grinder?

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, No, no grinder. Well, Gene got a tiny hand crank one and it takes about 10 minutes to grind enough for a cup. Ha. I'm sure we could come up with one for special coffee, though. We did try some of the coffee last time we saw you. Yummmmmm.

really nice digital sketch :) no coffee for me, too many nights coming home smelling like a coffee pot from Timmys and I think it just taste burnt lol

Jennifer Rose, I'm not a big coffee drinker at restaurants or fast food locals. There are a couple of restaurants we frequent that have good coffee, otherwise not so much. It does often taste burnt.
