I have finally discovered a purpose for the electrical outlet on my front porch. Its main purpose is certainly not for plugging in Christmas lights since it is right by the front door and people would trip over the cord as they enter my house. Plus, I can count on one finger how many times my husband and I have actually hung outside lights.
No, I have discovered a bigger and a more important purpose for the outlet on my front porch…grinding coffee beans in the dark, in the wee hours of the morning when no one else in the house is awake!
Most mornings I can wait until my son is awake before my morning brew, but this morning I was eagerly ready for my liquid manna from heaven and my hubby and son were still sleeping peacefully.
But, I had a slight dilemma.
No ground coffee.
my hero out on the front porch.
I filled up my grinder with my beautiful beans and quietly went outside to grind them to perfection. Grrrrrrrrr!!!
Ahhh! The first cup of coffee everyday always tastes so good! Even though I just had some yesterday, I still get somewhat giddy as I listen to my coffee machine produce this warm, flavorful goodness for me again…just 24 little hours later.
It’s a new day.
Another day to enjoy coffee!
