Rambling over Coffee: Not posting immediately after reading the news AND it's that time of year! PEPPERMINT BARK COFFEE!!!!!
My goal of not posting right after I read the news is probably a good thing.
Although I read some news articles this morning, it was over 40 minutes ago and although I'm still circling a few of the topics through my brain; dissecting them and commenting and hashing them out, I'm not all fired up and posting when I'm so frustrated I can't put my thoughts together as I'd like. My brain works at warp speeds compared to how fast I can talk... (and I talk FAST - I'm a Northerner! Ha ha). And although I type quickly as well, I grow frustrated that I can't talk or type as fast as I think. By the time my brain sends the signals to my mouth fingers I'm already another 'mile down the road' in my thought process. So I probably end up sounding like an idiot because it seems like a waste of time to try to say what I wanted to say 7 seconds ago, as my brain has already processed it all and went on to 9 different things in those 7 seconds. And I get bored so easily that my thoughts/comments/arguments from 5 seconds ago are already 'old' to me and I've moved on.
My husband tells me this isn't how the average person thinks. But I know it's genetic because my son processes this way and to some extent, my youngest daughter. The oldest daughter takes after her Dad and from what I'm told... normal people. Ha ha.
Coffee this morning is my 'regular' I've been drinking for some time now. Starbucks Sumatra. I haven't blogged about new coffee in a while because I really haven't been trying any. I had to drink a different brand/flavor about 8 weeks ago when I was out of Sumatra, but I restocked and honestly just haven't wanted anything else for a long, long time.
The only thing I've been noticing this week is that I have been preferring the one and ONLY flavored coffee I really, really like: Peppermint Bark Coffee!!!!! I don't know what it is about this ONE coffee flavor/brand but it's really the only flavored coffee I can stand to drink... and I can drink it daily to replace regular black coffee throughout the winter months. I don't add sweetener or anything to it. I love it just the way it is.
Note on the coffee: It's out now, but you have to find it and stock up on it! It always sells out quickly. You can find it locally at your Walmart stores and sometimes grocery stores but it flies off the shelves pretty fast from what I've seen.
I have one Walmart that is out in the country, in a small town near me that keeps it in a very strange 'end cap' style place in the dairy section. I'm SO GLAD THEY DO because a lot of people don't notice it there and I can usually find it. I've found it there the last couple years... and I'm due to head there today for some groceries and YES I'm going to check. As a matter of fact, the only reason I've been able to enjoy it this week is because I snagged 2 boxes LAST spring before it disappeared for the year. I've tucked them into the back of my pantry, waiting for the cool weather of Fall.
That cool weather hit this week and those boxes came out, and have gone so quickly I think I've only a few k-cups left... so I'll be looking at Walmart today for more.
It's currently (as of this morning's post) available through Amazon. I've added some links to this post. But if this year is like most years, they'll sell out too. AND NOTE: The Holiday Buzz blend LOOKS similar on the box but it is NOT the Peppermint Bark style I'm talking about. :)
