struggles in the life of the gypsy potter...

we are very fortunate to be staying with our friend roni this week while we dismantle the gas kiln... she has a lovely home on bow lake. staying in other peoples homes has it's challenges.
 roni has one of those keurig (sp?) one cup at a time coffee makers.  jeff and i drink WAAAY to much coffee to use that.  we have bought 2 boxes at $7.95 ea. in the last week. YIKES!
yesterday we saw a french press in roni's cabinet...  so last night we bought some coffee.  i woke up this morning realizing i had never used one before... the internet is a wonderful thing...

i found some directions...

then couldn't open the can of coffee because i had no clue how to operate this can opener and didn't want to have to find directions for THAT online!  luckily i rummaged through the drawers and found the old fashioned kind. being a lefty i am somewhat can opener challenged anyway... so i have a good excuse.

here we go!

ahhhh.... two steaming cups of coffee
meesh mug on the left... roni brown mug on the right (yep... she's a potter too!)

so the first round of coffee was a little week... the next one will be better.  BRING ON THE DAY!!!


  1. Coffee(wonderful as it is) tastes SOOOOO much better when served in a handmade ceramic mug!

  2. I have one of those coffee makers (I think I still do - somewhere in the packing); I used to take it on camping trips with my pre-ground coffee; when I didn't have electricity it worked great.

  3. jeff had a beautiful drip coffee maker that he had made years back. unfortunately it broke a few months ago. and you are right Linda- they are great for camping etc.. the coffee tastes great from them too. once we are settle jeff is going to make a new one.
