The Longest Month

Coffee is good, all of the time…even in the hottest month of the year.  However, while August is my least favorite month of the year, it is kind of like Christmas Eve, Eve.  The anticipation of September and months again having ‘Rs’ is exciting.

Here in the south, though fall begins in September, don’t be fooled…it is plenty hot.  One will not really need to break out the sweaters and sweats for a few more weeks.  That said, let’s raise a mug to shorter days, cooler nights and primo coffee drinking weather.

New ‘Mug Of The Moment’ – RIP

This is a first for us in the ‘Mug of the Moment’ category…a tribute to a fallen mug.

Sadly, we report one of our favorite mugs fell (pun intended) to the laws of gravity and has gone on to that great Shelf in the sky.  It now Rests In Pieces.

Coffee Mug - The Mountains Psalms

This was an exceptional mug for two reasons.  (1) its design kept the coffee hot longer and (2) it mentions the mountains.  Coffee and the mountains, two of our favorite things.

Because you never know when something like this can happen…don’t forget to hug your favorite mug today.

Happy New Year!

We have a new ‘Mug of the Moment’ coming to us from Lisa Poulos Williams of Suwanee, GA.  Lisa is an amateur photographer and took the amazing picture herself.  She got his mug from one of her favorite coffee shops and and says, “The color is my ‘gotta have some peace in my life today’ blue.”

Thanks for sharing with us Lisa…we’ll see you at Three O’clock!

Months With R’s!

“Spinning around in circles, living it day to day,
and still, 24 hours, maybe 60 good years,
it’s really not that long a stay.” ~ Jimmy Buffett – Cowboy In The Jungle

I hope to have many more trips around the sun before I venture to the great Beyond.  In the meantime, I am basking in the joy that, for me at least, comes in celebrating the end of August.

We are just a couple of days into September and yesterday could not have been more perfect.  I started off the day in the best room of the house…our screened porch, with a cup of ‘nectar from the gods’ in one of my ‘game day’ mugs and it was so cool outside, I needed a blanket over my legs.  (Grabbing a blanket was a quicker option than changing from shorts.)

My beloved Bulldogs played a good game, I completed one of those projects I have been hitting the snooze button on for many months and the end result was great!

We kicked off a new season of ‘Time For Dervin’ (www.timefordervin.com) and the early feedback has been exciting.

I got to start playing my ‘A Nip In The Air’ playlist, which are songs that remind me past autumns, cooler weather and, of course, months with r’s.

College football, oysters back in season, breakout the sweatshirts, sweaters, apple scented candles, trips to north Georgia, hot chocolate and fires.

Now, I am up early enjoying the day of rest and looking forward to just that.  I intend to milk every day I can while during this season because it seems time continues to fly.

More laughing, more simplicity…less of anything else.

See you at Three O’clock!

 

Mug Of The Moment

Yea, yea, yea, I have said it before and will prolly say it again.  I hope to be more active with fresh content here.  In the mean time, here is my newest mug of the moment.

We got this at an art show in Chattanooga, TN the weekend we were there to see Brian Regan, one of our favorite comedians.
