Nevertheless, what would I do without coffee? Particularly after staying up late watching people willingly destroy their knee joints on moguls, and staring blearily at packs of hunched-over skaters go circling round and round an ice rink like schools of sharks? And it that weren't bad enough I stayed up after the broadcast and read a couple of chapters of Gervase Phinn's Over Hill, Over Dale for about half an hour before switching out the light. Ding-Dong!!!
So how am I faring today? You may judge for yourself.
|Coffee! I can sleep when I'm dead! Or after the Olympics.|
Coffee is a way of life in this household and I have the vintage percolators to prove it. Sadly, my favorite one died last week. It started leaking a bit and I noticed something rattling around inside the heating element. My electrician husband examined it, declared it unsafe and unrepairable, and so I have reluctantly retired it. The silly thing only lasted for--what?--fifty or sixty years? What is the world coming to?

These are simply felt, fake fur, googly eyes, and pom poms, with magnets glued to the back. They're easy to do--no talent and no pattern required! I suggest you whip some out forthwith. They'd be fun to make with your kids, as well.
Okay. Gotta dash--er--crawl off and do some housework.
By the way, I did reopen the shops temporarily and, in honor of the Olympics, you can type in coupon code 22OLYMPIC at checkout and get 22% off your order. The sale ends with the games do, though, so don't delay! I'm not listing any new stuff right now, but trying to clear out what's on hand.
