Yesterday morning I went down to the kitchen to make my morning pot of coffee. Hmmm . . . While I was putting the ground coffee in the filter, I noticed an ant crawling around on the counter. That's not an oddity in our kitchen, so I promptly squashed him, washed him down the sink, and went on in preparing my coffee. My next step was to take the back part of the coffee maker out to fill it with water. As I was taking it over to the sink, I noticed that the ant had invited his friends to come crawl all over that part of the coffee maker! I rinsed the water canister out as well as I could, sending quite a few ants to a watery grave. Hopefully I got them all. But, what can a little protein matter, right? Coffee, any one?

These are a few of my favorite things . . .

As stated in my last post, I'm enjoying a more relaxed pace of life out here in California than I knew during my grad school days. Today, I've decided to share with you my favorite thing to do out here. My parents live about a ten minute drive from the ocean, so when I have a nice chunk of time, I like to hop into the car and drive to downtown Carlsbad (the next city south of here) to the Starbucks there. I usually get my standard - a grande peppermint latte. Then I grab my coffee and my book and walk the five minutes down to the Pacific ocean.

See the pictures below. This is really what it looks like. :)
