ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 7

Vacination number 2. Done and done. I feel good. I knew that I would. That’s a song, in case you don’t hear me singing. Although I know that my limited exposure to the world isn’t going to dramatically change, there is a feeling of relief that my body is now digesting this inoculation. And as a bonus....The SUN came out . That makes everything brighter and greener and more positive. Sunday brunch/ lunch is coming up and because three members of the family have commitments, the 4 left have voted for an all American ,stick to your ribs,calorie laden,high cholesterol,need a nap afterwards breakfast. Bacon, eggs cooked to order( probably in bacon fat) hash browns, donuts and muffins. And lots of coffee. And thinking about coffee.. I have a new procedure. My coffee just hasn’t tasted special . So I went to Google and found  out what makes a special cup of coffee. I measured my measuring. I was way off. Just not right. I went to my digital scale . Measured grams and ounces against what I was using. Now I use precise measurements and the coffee is perfect.To facilitate early morning weigh ins for water and coffee, I premeasure  my coffee and put them in baggies ,stored in a closed container. Empty the baggie into the filter basket,pour in cold water to the mark  that I made on the coffee  carafe, press “ on”, and in a few minutes, I have my perfect cup of coffee. Sitting here ,in the dark , before the world of Port Townsend is up is a special ,quiet time. Worth the effort.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
