As the days grow shorter
And the temperature drops
We end the evening in the living room
with after dinner coffee
And sometimes a sweet.
After dinner coffee is the rare time I use a mug.
And it comes as no surprise that the mugs are blue and white!
We don't have dessert every night -- the coffee is really our dessert
for we always have a good pour of cream and in the evening a spoonful of sugar.
It's my sweet way to end an evening.
But sometimes, there is dessert!
Pecan bars, not made by me but made by The Upper Crust in downtown Overland Park
Since there's a sweet, it's all piled on a tray
and the tray is placed on the living room coffee table (how appropriate!)
And since there is a sweet, the coffee is taken black.
Some of us, however, isn't an after dinner coffee fan.
Preferring instead to take a nap while coffee is sipped and dessert is eaten.
Begging done at dinner can wear a dog out!
