New Coffeehouse Hangout

Hey all

I think I am doing well enough to post up here first. I at times walk to the store and so on to get air and to clear my mind. A few days ago I decided to go into the coffee shop that is a few stores down from my salon. Qualia Coffee is its name and I call it a "Indie Coffeehouse". They have a cat which is a win/win for me and the staff is pretty nice. Sample tasting and a diverse group of people makes a trip worth while. I enjoy finding new things to give me motivation to blog to you all.
Enjoy moi two pics below.

Sad Announcment

Hi everyone I want to say that I will be on bereavement for a few weeks. Its been a long week for me and finally yesterday I had to say goodbye to my oldest furbaby Izzy. I am to pieces and I need to collect my thoughts. Bella and I are very happy that family and friends are being so supportive. Its only her and I now. I tell people its very hard losing a family member. Furry or not they are your family what makes up your family. I am so blessed to have had her and she came to me when I was so down. I love her and will never ever forget her. I wrote about what happened bellow.

Thank you

RIP Miss Izzabella-Ka Sawyer I wanna say thanks to all the heart felt words from everyone. I'm so attached to my two cats it's breaking my heart that I lost one. It's hard being alone, family four hours away each direction, working a lot and finishing two degrees. I held on as much as I could but when they did cpr on her and I was crying and just to pieces the nurses or doctors couldn't calm me but suddenly she opened her eyes and calmed me by cleaning me. I stopped crying instantly and everyone in the room started to cry. I knew then that she was telling me that she was ok with leaving and Bella-Tomo and me would be ok without her. She was 14 my feisty little girl. I see she made the final decision again. I respected her wishes. I'm going to be ok. It will just take a while.

Coffee Conversations : Coffeehouse Attire

Happy Friday 


What are your plans for the weekend? I plan on getting work done and maybe some coffee and conversation. I have a slight headache so I think I am for once taking it easy tonight. The pic above is from Peets Coffee . Ever been? Its a Cali based company that is starting to make waves here in the DC area. I think they are cool.

Which brings me to this thought: I like coffeehouses that people dress and be themselves and not so much suit and tie thing. I mean do you want that all the time?

 The dress has nothing to do with someone's personality all the time and they can be a mean person and still dress up or have that company's' proper attire on ,so I hope many mainstream companies get a hint and see that most of their traffic are younger people. Saying please and thank you in a uniform doesn't make the company better. I think the concept was taken a bit overboard and it is losing meaning, but that's just me. I see that certain shops that as they would call "mom and pop" shops are down to earth, nice dress like you and I and you can hold a real conversation with.

Any thoughts on that ? I would love to hear it in the comments below.

Some great news

Hey all

I have missed you, since everything has calmed down I am back! I have some great news! My blog now will have its own address!!! Ah both of them will to be exact. This blog will be under my main blog and I am so excited. So I think a small little very intimate five people outing is necessary to celebrate? A coffeehouse would be nice.

Stay caffeinated

Happy National Coffee Day !!!

*I had a bad internet outage yesterday but I didn't forget about it, I had written it ahead of time just added pictures*

Happy National Coffee Day!

You know I was happy! Not only did I have coffee from everywhere but I shared with friends and family in this gloomy time we are having. I was very educational to them and they loved me explaining the different aspects of coffee to them, like...

  • Espresso- compressed coffee steamed

  • Latte- Espresso and hot water

  • Cafe au lait- Coffee and milk 

Starbucks double shot ( espresso) on ice with 12 pumps of classic( syrup)  and breve ( half and half)  or soy; its funny when I send my friend or my mom to get one for me they all confused and I repeat it slow lol.

 Did you take advantage of free coffee today? I did and so did people I know who kindly messaged me their pictures,

Ah the joy of sharing that caffeinated joy with everyone. Here are some fun facts that I have looked up over the years and tried or discovered,

  • If you really want a jolt drink a light roast coffee, it is not as dark as dark roast being that it didn't sit and soak for a long time. Therefore making it a lot stronger than dark roast; dark roast is great for a flavor boost.
  • Try to have your last cup by noon, because it takes all day for the caffeine to be used up in your body.
  • If you do not like coffee try certain teas that will give you a boost, or better yet ice coffee seems to do the trick.
  • Carbonated coffee is a new trend here in the states but not in places in Europe; where its a staple.
  • Watching calories?  skim, half and half, and soy are great add-on alternatives.
  • Coffee doesn't stunt your growth, thank genetics for that one.

Until a week or so from now stay caffeinated
