Do, do, do, looking out my back door

Rest assured, the coffee situation has been rectified. The el cheapo Target brand is steaming in my mug as I type. I have long opined that if the fancy coffee places or craft breweries that are all the rage depended upon me for success none would exist. I like plain black coffee and ordinary American lager beer. For the hoi poloi my tastes may be rather pedestrian, but you should have discerned long ago I am about the basics, not the pretense. But if you like a double caramel Frappuccino or an extra-hopped IPA, good for you. Enjoy. We don’t have to agree. 

It looks to be a gorgeous day here in Hoosierdom. I have yard work to do. The garage needs cleaned out in preparation for winter. I might find a few minutes to sit on the patio and ponder my blessings and read a bit in the sunshine. Nothing stirs your soul like watching the leaves turn.

Soon those leaves will be on the ground crying for a rake. For now, I can enjoy their beauty. 

Have a great Saturday, mon amis.

Beautiful trees.

Merci beaucoup

I don't get it. We are seeing only the fewest of the leaves on the tips of the trees barely changing color yet. I guess it hasn't been cold enough yet? If so, I can wait. I'll enjoy yours.

We buy the WalMart "Donut Shop" Arabica coffee.
It is inexpensive (Or cheap) and wonderful.
Visitors leave our home and are converted.

Jean, I cheated a little. That hard maple turns early. Just a little left is another tree, leaves green as a August. The maple in the front yard is a light green at best, still weeks away from turning while the Bradford pears will hold on until a December.

Graybeard, the Walmart morning blend (yellow box) is my favorite coffee and I choose it above any other brand, expensive or cheap. Alas, we were at a Target, and I wanted coffee without driving across town to a Walmart.
