My favorite

Anyone who knows me knows that I love coffee.  It makes me happy, sooths me when I am not well, wakes me up in the morning, helps with my headaches and is generally yummy to me.  I love the smell, the taste, and the feeling of a warm cup of coffee in my hands.  Over the years, I have become picky about my coffee.  I know a good cup of coffee and I know what kind of coffee I really like.

So I wasn't sure what to expect when decided to try the coffee food truck, Cafe x Clarke C2, I saw outside of Canadian Tire here in Yarmouth between 7 and 2.

I will say that I had heard of their daily supply of fresh baked lunch pies.  From the way people describe them, I can only assume that they are all kinds of yummy!  The man behind me in line that I spoke to said that he gets one every day for lunch!!  I find it interesting that they sell out of the lunch pies every day when the day I went they weren't even on the menu - they must be good!!

Now I can't have flour but I brought Prince Charming with me and he tried the apple cheddar scones and he was amazed at how delicious they were!

I got a medium sized, medium roast (they also offer dark roast) black coffee and it was wonderful!  It was definitely the sort of fabulous coffee I could see myself becoming addicted to!  It was so good.

The man who served us was really friendly and informative.  He provided service with a smile (actually he made laugh too).  He remembered the customers around me which is always lively to see.

This is definitely the sort of place that I love and I will be going back for a coffee on one of my trips to the many stores nearby.

I Love It

Whenever I need a break, my favorite thing to do is drive down to the waterfront and enjoy the beauty.  I love the boats, the water, the sea gulls, and all the sights, sounds and smells.   It sooths me.  I love it.

On another note, anoyher hhing I love is how my kids are so creative that it amazes me sometimes.  Princess Magpie took a birthday hat, and piece of printer paper, some glue and a black marker and created witches hat!  Then the two little girls played dress up. I love these girls!

Do You See This?

This beautiful boy is autistic.   This beautiful boy doesn't sleep.   This beautiful boy can be loud.  When I moved into this ramshackle duplex, I met my neighbors and discussed my beautiful boy with them.  I told them all about him and asked them to tell me if he was too loud.  Over the past couple of months, as I discovered just how run-down this house is, I checked in with them to make sure he wasn't too loud and they reassured me he was fine until 1:30 last night when they bashed on our adjoining wall so loudly they scared the girls.  I was up all the rest of the night trying to keep him quiet but today I am exhausted and sad.  I don't know what to do.  I am working with my beautiful boy but there is only so much I can do.
