Jiva Coffee Cubes

I was recently sent this batch of
Jiva Coffee Cubes to try.

Since we are always curious about
anything coffee, we were pleasantly
surprised by this product from a
couple of young folks in Florida,
who started with a Kickstarter
funding project.

Forget SB's Via, if you want instant,
for camping or traveling, you can't
go wrong with these - some hot
water and you're off.

They are made with Colombian coffee,
and unrefined cane sugar.

We weren't able to try any of the other
products to compare (strong black)
might fit our tastes better and hope to
try that at some point soon.

They also offer flavored coffee cubes,
chocolate and lemonade.

Green tea is soon to be offered
and would look forward to trying
that one also.

Check out Jiva Coffee Cubes on FB,
check out their website here:

Jiva Coffee Cubes

and if you do try them out,
they have small packets of
4 cubes for $5.00 in order
to decide if it's what
would suit you.

Try them out and let them know
where you heard about them.

Taking Action, Smile, Big Brother Is Watching

Whatever course you decide upon,

there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.

There are always difficulties arising which tempt you

to believe that your critics are right.

To map out a course of action

and follow it to an end requires courage.

Money For This, But Not For That

Peace is not the absence of war,

but a virtue based on strength of character.

Take The Time To Understand

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom.

One helps you make a living,

the other helps you build a life.

When traveling with someone,

take large doses

of patience and tolerance

with your morning coffee.

This was my first attempt at a collage puzzle.
Worse for wear sending through the heat of summer.

I will be updating and adding a link to my Etsy shop.
No longer on FB, pass around the link to anyone
you think might be interested:

State Of The World Today & Mary Delaney Book

Started this book and for anyone interested in
history and art forms, you should seek this out.
And goes to show, it's never too late -

In the late 18th century, the twice-­widowed Mary Delany
created nearly a thousand breathtakingly beautiful
and intricate paper “mosaicks” of flowers.
Glued onto black backgrounds,
they were not only stunning but also botanically precise.
Mrs. D., as her latest biographer, the poet Molly Peacock,
sometimes calls her, began this project in her early 70s
and only stopped roughly 10 years later, in 1783,
when her eyesight declined.
Today the collages reside in the British Museum.

 Are we sure it is desirable
for a man's spirit not to be at war with itself,
or that it is better to be serene
 and ready to go to dinner
than to be excited and unwilling
to stop for a cup of coffee, even?

Little Boxes

Too many times in life, people tend
to put others in a little box,
as if we all fit neatly somewhere -

After all these years,
I'm able to accept the
fact I am different,
embrace it,
and not worry anymore
about whether I do
or don't fit in any box -

That's what this one
was made for this past week -
