what a lovely way to start the day!

I am NOT a coffee drinker. And no, that's not just because I'm Mormon (as people always assume), it's more because I hate the taste of coffee. I love the smell of it brewing, but the taste does nothing for me.

However! I have a wicked sore throat this morning.....the kind that makes me dread the next time I'll have to swallow because it hurts so bad. So I wanted something soothing....I had a bite of ice cream this morning, I thought maybe I could numb the pain but that didn't work (although Rocky Road is a great incentive to get up out of bed!). So as I got off the trolley this morning, I walked into Starbucks cause I thought maybe something warm would soothe my throat. I was going to get a Chai Tea Latte, which is the only thing at Starbuck's I've found that I can handle, when I remembered it's Automn now so they have their seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte! So I got one of those, forgot to ask for Soy milk but I did ask to hold the whipped cream. $4 later, I no longer cringe with pain every time I swallow (although it still hurts a little), and I feel all warm and cozy and ready for a forecasted rainy weekend, Oktoberfest, hopefully lots of knitting & reading, and maybe a fun Automn craft w/ my girls!!
