Happy National Coffee Day! Daily Rituals Rock!

Today’s the first day of the rest of my life, and I love starting my day with coffee.

From turkishcoffeeworld.com, I learned that the coffee plant, was coffee-ode-to-72-pix-copydiscovered in Ethiopia in the 11th Century, 400 years before my historical novel series started.  It has a white blossom that smells like jasmine and a red, cherry-like fruit.

Doesn’t that sound appropriate, for such a magical bean?

Back then, according to that website, leaves of the so-called “magical fruit” were boiled in water and the resulting concoction was thought to have medicinal properties.

Well, yeah! It starts my day! Coffee, and reading my emails. Add a granola bar and I’m successfully launched into a new day!

Wishing you a great new day! If you like novels, please check out my 3dcrimsonsecret200x236Coin Forest series, set in fifteenth century England. History, made passionate.  Thanks!
