It's time. This relationship just isn't working anymore.
I met you at Wal-Mart in early 2006 off Eastway Drive in Charlotte. You came home with me. Mornings have always been our special time together. There were also many late nights, sometimes working together until sunrise and beyond. I'll miss you, Mr. Coffee.
Now it's been almost 4 years. We've had some good times. We've been through some bad times. But it's over. The chamber has a leak. Even when filled to capacity, it only gives me 3/4 of a cup of tepid coffee. I'm worried that all the escaping steam will ruing my new cabinets. I could move it, but I think it's just time to say goodbye. I have drip style coffee maker in the cupboard. It's just not the same. The flavor turns muddy and dark before the second cup is poured. I guess I'll have to find another soon. Maybe I'll do that when the kitchen is finished. I should do some painting today. Or maybe I'll curl up with some literature from work that I need to read and drink the last cup of coffee.
It's 41 degrees and cloudy. The cat and I laid in bed this morning watching the birds outside the window. We're still waiting on the rain they promised last night. 181 fruit and flowering trees were unloaded and put in place at the store. Blueberries, blackberries, grapes, and raspberries arrived on Tuesday. I hope someone is watering them this morning.
12:02pm - It's finally raining. It's a light rain so far, but the radar shows storms rolling in this evening. It's 39 degrees.
I sowed 8 more quart sized containers today. Four each of Hardy Orange and Ligustrum "Howardii". I'll use these in the neighbor's corner. I think my loropetalum are gone. The cold was just too much, too long, and they weren't well established after being moved in the fall. I'm going to wait a few months before ripping them out, just in case.
Off to work in 40 minutes.
