Do you like great coffee? You wake up in the morning and you must have a cup of Java or your a freaking maniac. It helps start your busy day . That’s my girlfriend. The whole world has to stop before she has her coffee. Amazing! I do not drink coffee and can not understand why I am put on hold while she drinks her coffee. Diffenately an addiction to caffeine. Luckily for me she drinks zero soft drinks. Could you imagine how hyper she would be if she did. It would drive me crazy. In her defense she only drinks coffee first thing in the morning and she motors on all day.

I patiently wait for breakfast . Once I got tired of waiting and she got upset because I started to fix breakfast. Oh my god, you would think I robbed a bank. She loves taking care of me but it is on her terms, coffee first. To appease my early morning nature she sometimes makes me hot chocolate . Nothing like hot chocolate and banana bread while I wait for her coffee fix. We get up early in the morning because she needs to get things done early. Her arthritis acts up and she is down for the count at two P.M. She tries her best but the pain for her is excruciating. There is not enough pain killers to ease the pain . Besides, she works at not using pain killers.

She loves the coffee in Costa Rica. She does not use a perculator. She uses a coffee press.  Pours hot water of the grinds, waits for it to settle and slowly lowers the plunger down. She loves it. On less electrical outlet that is used. I have to admit I love the smell of coffee . It makes her happy and starts her day off grandly.

Another great advantage living in Costa Rica. Great coffee and beautiful sunrises!

Another Great morning in Lake Arenal

Cumulus clouds puffy white

Blue skies beautifully bright

A gentle breeze calling us outside

No reason to hide inside

My girls and I sit on the veranda

LaLa and LuLu sharing a banana

Corina sipping her Java

Me, eating guava

We decide to go for a walk

Some time for us to talk

Exercise to strengthen our health

Energizing our stealth

Heading down the steep brick driveway

Huffing and puffing our way

Turn at the gate and head up the hill

Up we go exerting our will

To the top of a satisfying walk

Gasping almost unable to talk

We stop and take a couple of deep breathes

Time to sit down and take a rest

Take a drink of my lemon water

Happy we completed our walk and did not falter

LaLa and LuLu happy on our laps

Looks like they will take a nap

Another great morning in Lake Arenal

Time travel
