Coffee and … A Happy August

It’s Wednesday. It’s nearly the end of the month. It must be time for coffee and a list of happy things. Join me?

The Coffee:

This week, I’m drinking another Steampunk coffee. It is the Pepe Mijahuanca, a microlot from Peru with tasting notes of vanilla, lime and jasmine, and it’s been helping me through some long work days and late nights of reading!

The Happy Things:
