I realized this morning I had been going too fast too often because.when I wanted to grind coffee, I didn't have a way to grind it, until I remembered I had a very old vintage coffee grinder never used by me, bought at a Thrift Store in Cobb County almost 13 years ago. (My electric one is reserved for grinding flax and my grind and brew coffeepot quit working after about 13 very hard months of a second lease on life)
I then realized I never smelled or experienced that coffee grinding so in a very noisy coffee grinder. I feel like for about 5 minutes a day, that coffee making will be different the slower way. I may even graduate over to using my blue campstove perculator, if I can find all the parts!!!
Slow down and enjoy some of the experiences of life. Sometimes we save more than electrical energy by using our hands or simple tools. We can save our sanity and "downgrade" our high speed to worrying about the speed and keeping some of the stress causing by multi tasking all day to a lower level as well. So at the risk of being trite, please "Slow down and smell the coffee." Literally and figuratively!
I'm sipping and my coffee and really smelling and tasting and enjoying it........SLOWLY.... Have a blessed day.
