my mom has been my favorite coffee companion for the last three weeks. she left yesterday. *sigh*. it's that thing with family and good old friends: you can have coffee, be together and the silence between the talk feels good. even if it lasts for a long while.
those last few days she was here, and i finally got the hang of the granny square crochet project, we would sit together, talk a bit, but also just sit the two of us with our crochet work, sometimes making a break for a cup if coffee, prepared and served by my dad. what a luxury of good coffee company.
she left this beautiful pillow behind for me to look at and admire. i love those granny squares, but i am also really thrilled about that perfect white back of the pillow. so simple and pretty.
i obviously also like to go out and have coffee. in fact, it feels like ages since i went to tel aviv and had a coffee date with a friend. you know, one of those coffee dates that involves a lot of talking, walking around the town, a bit of shopping, some nice food, and - of course - a cup of coffee.
anyway, i think i need my morning coffee now with my dad, my coffee companion these days. and if you're looking for company, then let jane of spain daily introduce you to coffee companions around the world.
