Coffee

The morning would have probably be a more appropriate time to place this blog, but hey…now it is! It has been a while. My recovery is going fine, just fine, not great, not bad, just ok. Time to have fun again -sometimes I need time to recover from that- time to train and I am still making progress in the whole recovering process, although it’s sometimes very slowly…

One thing that has kept me going was coffee…. the topic of this post ;-).
Let’s start at the beginning. I can remember that right after the accident I felt sick every time I smelled something…and definitely the specific strong scent of this black warm drink. I made all my visitors chew gum before they came near me…ugh!

In Holland I guess I still didn’t care….a couple of times people brought the better version of the popular drink from the cafeteria – hoping that it was better than the hospital version- but still…no….

Cappuccino…maybe I like that…? No again….

After the hospital when I was home for a short bit I dared to try it and I guess I occasionally liked it, or just a sip of it. The months following in the rehabilitation centre it became more of a social thing the coffee moment. The moment I tried to – in my wheelchair back then-  drink coffee at the cafeteria with my mum, ended in a early wrap up because I needed to lay down….in bed. But…when I started to enjoy the black poison again I was so grateful for all the visitors who brought some…from home or Starbucks!

Recovering means a lot of alone-time. And from the moment I got home in January, this alone-time was often filled with making cups of home-made cappuccino or espresso for myself….and really enjoy them!

One step later was to invited people over for a coffee. And I guess all my friends know now how my coffee-machine works…because they had to make it themselves :-).

Since a couple of months I am asking others to make coffee for me and my friends, because we can meet up in a cafe or a restaurant….sooo so good!

But this weekend surpassed all of these coffees….:-) My sister is getting married in August so my other sister and I organized a bachelor-party (how is that called for a girl??? a Bachelorette?). As she loves Italy and really enjoys her cup of coffee every day…we went to a Barista course at 5×6. For two hours we were totally in the world of coffee, or actually of the latte-art (do type is in at youtube…awesome!). And we had so much fun! What started of as making-a-mess, hilarious figures (nothing near the example) and a cup immersed with milk….ended up with a few great latte-art-cappuccino’s and six very happy girls!!
