Day 174: Corner View--Coffee Companions

Missed last week's Corner View, which was "street photography," since I take my photos the day of the challenge, and it was snowing and COLD!  So I copped out and stayed home.  Since I blew off last week, today I really felt I needed to do this week's challenge.

Problem?

Uh.  I don't drink coffee!  Although I have to say I like the smell of it, and I used to work next to a place that sold a hazelnut flavored coffee with a smell that I wanted to bottle and daub behind my ears.  However, I don't drink the stuff.

And I know that yesterday I posted a teacup.  Today you're getting another one, I'm afraid.

I've been having some tummy owies since last July, and I can hardly WAIT until May when our insurance kicks in and I can go get it checked out.  The pain comes and goes, but today was a particularly rough day.  In an attempt to calm things down, I brewed a cup of mint tea and honey.  Companion?  Something that I put on the plate because I like them, although there was no way I could eat them today.  A little vanilla and caramel cookie stick.  Yum.


Now off to see what's brewing at Spain Daily.

You really have a nice collection of teacups. It seems like May will be the month for both of us. I'm trying to push off a surgery till then. I hope your tummy stuff will be OK. xo

Maureen: Hey! Whaddya know! I've never tried it, actually. Weird, huh? Never missed trying it, either.

Theresa: thanks!

Otli: Yup. Chocolate is a good companion for about ANYTHING.

OceanGirl: That's sweet. No way I'm taking photos of my corners. Dust bunnies.

Kathryn: It hasn't been behaving itself so far. Spent this afternoon curled up in bed whimpering. Wuss that I am! LOL
