New Cookies: Le Petit Normand

I picked up some French cookies from World Market the other day called Le Petit Normand. They’re a basic biscuit with a milk chocolate back. They were Ok, nothing to write home about, though.

I then sit at my desk and open the news or write on my blog, all while listening to some soft music. This helps me gather my thoughts from the previous day and prepare mentally and emotionally for the  day ahead. It’s like meditation in a sense. I might read the bible or look at some pictures. Regardless what I choose to do, I definitely enjoy my coffee with some cookies ;). Continue reading

Unique Coffee and HomeGoods

I typically get my coffee from HomeGoods (where I also get my scottie dog  cookies). For some reason, Home Goods style really appeals to me. I like the atmosphere and the unique foods, spices, utensils, and furniture they have. One of my favorite coffees is sold there: Unique Coffee Roasters.
