Good Mornings for a Monday (January 14) January 14, 2013 / By / 5 Comments A few things I said “Good Morning” to on this Monday… Crafting notions procured for a few projects this week. We have some friends from the US arriving tonight, and staying with us for a few days. One of the projects is for our guest bathroom. I guess I’d better get started! We love our Moka pot. I talked to my sister until nearly 2 AM yesterday. It was wonderful to catch up with her, but this morning’s alarm was a little brutal. Please don’t ask me the vintage of these PJ shorts. The fishie faces still crack me up, after all these years. And who doesn’t need a giggle on a Monday morning? Although, I suppose it’s time to get moving, and into some proper clothes.

[Except on the days we might…miiiiight…make a second pot. 😉 ] Hope you enjoy every minute (even the ones when they’re driving you crazy!) with your family!

I suppose you don’t, but I have been wanting one for awhile and keep reading “IT WILL POISON YOU.” I don’t know how much of that is fear-mongering. Anyway… The other question is …do you have a guest bathroom and not a guest bedroom? I guess I am confused as to how big a bathroom could be that it could fit a bed in part of it. Holly KN January 15, 2013 at 10:49 pm - Reply Legit question, but I don’t pay much mind to aluminum fears. I use stuff that comes out of aluminum cans, and I wrap leftovers in aluminum foil, and who knows what’s in stainless steel anyway? We never noticed a metallic taste, and now our pot is pretty well seasoned. All coffee aficionados have a favorite method, so I can’t swear this is the solution for everyone: But we love it. KMN likes really strong espresso-like coffee. I like my coffee with lots of milk, but not super thinned out (like drip coffee + lots of milk gets) – more latte style. The moka pot’s product works great for both of us. Heck, I live on the wild side and sometimes drink the last bit in the afternoon, after it’s sat in the pot for 6 hours… I’m counting on something else killing me before the aluminum. 🙂 Funny story. We have a guest bedroom, with a guest bathroom. The “master bedroom” in our apartment is actually the smallest bedroom, area-wise, so we made it the guest room. So guests have their own bathroom. We stay in a larger room that’s about half a step from another bathroom. And there’s a third, half-bath as well. I’ve never lived anywhere that bathrooms outnumbered residents before.
