Good morning fellow writers and readers.  I hope last week was good for you and your weekend was wonderful.  This week we will be getting two furry additions to our family – cats :).  Everyone is very excited and we are in the process of preparing the house for our new members. 

Whenever I give a room (or the house) a good cleaning, I inevitably come across something I haven’t seen in a while, that I forgot I had or forgot I bought.  So that’s what inspired today’s prompt. 

It’s your choice. Write about:

a) finding something you thought lost

b) finding something you forgot you had

c) finding something completely unexpected

Have a wonderful and productive week!

Thursday Favorite Things – My Mug Warmer

I love my morning cup of coffee and everyone in my life knows it.  I have small gifts from friends and family that say “Instant Human – Just Add Coffee”, “I haven’t had my coffee – don’t make me kill you,” and “I’m only as strong as my coffee and hairspray.”

However… I usually drink only that morning cup.

And frequently, it lasts me for hours (I’m typing this at 10:30 am, and my mug is not empty even though I poured it at 8:30).  For a long time I ended up reheating it in the microwave so that each sip would be warm.  Until a friend gave me the Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer and changed – and improved – the way I enjoy my coffee every day.

This lovely gadget, which retails from $8-10 depending on where you purchase it, allows me to have a warm cup of coffee from first sip until the last.  It sits next to my computer keeping the mug just the right temperature, so if I’m distracted from my desk for a while (and who isn’t), when I come back – it’s waiting for me, ready to enjoy again.

It’s simple, does the job is supposed to do, doesn’t take up much space, isn’t expense and makes my life a little happier.

How many things can you say that about 🙂
