I just love the look of the 'crema' (the thin layer of foam at the top of a cup of espresso) when it includes the chocolate used when making a mocha. . .
. . . it looks so soothing & almost perfect! . . .
. . . almost.
. . . ahhh. . . there. . . now this is one of the comforts of home that I do love.
I have to admit that it's so fun to get away. . . but for me, it's even better coming home.
Last week, I took a working 'retreat' to San Diego. . . (where I grew up & my Dad still has a timeshare). . . & while a had a great time, I actually came home a day early. The weather was beautiful most of the time - but at the end it was turning a bit messy. . . & since I drove there & the weatherman kept mentioning that the mountains could get snow. . . I decided to head home a day early.
I got home on Thursday evening. . . & I've been kept very busy the last few days shipping orders that came in while I was gone. . . (thank you for all you who ordered from the website!. . . your orders have been shipped!) & while I had great weather to travel by last Thursday, it seems that the storms that were approaching California at the end of last week. . . have made their way here. So, we've had a couple of grey, windy, cold & drizzley days. . .
. . . perfect 'mocha' weather! (. . . but then, almost any weather is perfect 'mocha' weather to me!)
