  1. Hi Lidy
    Leisurely Breakfasts in Bed are a rare commodity for me, since I run a Bed & Breakfast. I will have to be honest, and say I do have that luxury occasionally. My husband makes the best coffee every morning.
    He grinds his own whole coffee beans, and uses ice cold water in the coffee maker. The smell of the fresh ground beans brewing is a automatic eye opener in the morning. There are many times when he brings me a fresh cup of coffee into the bedroom, so I can sit up in bed and go over our daily schedule. Afterwards, It is a peaceful and quiet time, I like to look out the window from my bed, and look at my garden to see what is blooming. I say good morning to my dog Bentley, who jumps up on my bed to
    get is morning hug. When I finish my coffee, it is time to get out of bed and face the reality of the day.
    It was nice while it lasted.

    I love the French Country check assortment of dinnerware, and linens you have displayed. The French glass bottle goes perfect with the daises.

    Thank You for sharing the Home Made Granola Recipe. I am always looking for tasty Gluten Free recipes to serve at the B&B. There are so many Gluten Free Guests nowadays, and so many of the Gluten free recipes are so delicious, that I can serve them to all the guests, and they don’t even know they are gluten free. Have a fabulous weekend.
