Community over coffee

Meet Shelly. She's one of my two "regular" commentors (and by regular I mean she's posted more than once). She's offline right now, *(^&%$ computer problems. This pic is from one of our early morning coffee times (mmmmm, make that CARAMEL MACHIATO!!!). Funny thing is, when we meet for coffee after school drop off, we usually chat it up til lunchtime. On this particular day they were giving out free bananas. Starbucks/bananas, Starbucks/bananas...doesn't quite go together but then I learned it was to hype their new summer drink. I'm sticking to my favorites.

Good stuff, just hanging out. That "being" thing.

People may have a bone to pick with Starbucks, but personally I'm GLAD for whatever part they had in the coffeehouse revolution. Evidently I'm not the only person who thinks so based on the insane number of people willing to stand in line to cough up four bucks for a hot cuppa joe. Maybe Starbucks (and other local like places) is the "Cheers" of our generation.

I googled God & Starbucks, you'd be amazed at the number of related posts. Here's one I found interesting; here's another. Hope you enjoy reading them with a steaming mug of something good in hand :).

When I was in college, my friend's boyfriend worked at a Starbucks Kiosk in a Seattle mall. He was talking about it one evening - telling us that it was going to "Take Off" and be this huge success. He told us we should buy stock.....I bet he's laughing now.

I take it your icon doesn't mean you're the Queen of Coffee, huh?

Robin, my daughter is TOTALLY a "Carmel Machiato" addict. But here in the desert this time of year... it's the "iced" variety.

Things are pretty exciting around town lately, because we they just broke ground on our third Starbucks!

That makes us "trinitarian", right? ;)

Hmmm, the south, heat & humidity, maybe I should venture out. We've actually considered buying our own espresso maker but the sticker shock (of a "good" one) keeps driving us back to SB.

Trinitarian, huh? Sounds like a cult. ;)

LOVE LOVE LOVE me some Starbucks (or Caribou here in MN) either one is good with me......but.....all those calories -

I made the mistake of looking at the nutritional information....I haven't had one since ....doesn't mean I won't again, just means I have to "allow" for it (cause I am trying to be good - note I said trying..hehe)

Look away from the light, cheeky...for me, ignorance is BLISS (and served up nicely hot & steamy)

A steamy hot cup of coffee I love, but what makes it sweet is having REAL conversation with a friend! I'm learning much....keep talking...and thanks for exploring with me!

Oh....and it's good to be back in cyberspace!:)

My boss is the caramel machiato... but she can't hold her caffeine. She has to drink half now and half tomorrow.

she shivers like a chihauhau.... and her eyes get big, too

reminded me of how depressed I am about being an unknown Starbucks drink (even though I don't do Starbucks -- maybe once or twice)

Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often) to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...
