He-Who-Mows and Makes Coffee sometimes has to reset the coffee maker before I drag out of bed but this morning I was up before daylight to see if the temperature really got as low as predicted. Shortly after I got up, it dropped one more degree to 24º which I think was the low. The greenhouse stayed well above freezing because I set the heaters higher than necessary, still fine tuning.
A blog that I read had links to all kinds of accessories for coffee drinkers on her post this morning. One of the items was a deluxe milk frother. For free I put a little milk in a pint jar and shake hard. Take off the lid and microwave a few seconds for hot froth. The deluxe machine does not heat.
Usually if there isn't much milk in the jug, I just shake the jug hard for instant froth which cools my coffee just enough.
Oh, did you notice the Thanksgiving Cactus? First Schlumbergera to bloom in the greenhouse. I brought it in last night to enjoy indoors. I had to coax a tiny frog out of the outer pot before I left the greenhouse.
Another freeze predicted tonight. I'll wake up to Folgers in my cup and Frost on the landscape. My children never called them soldiers, they said 'Little Army Men.' I think I'll buy a bag of them for Christmas.
Folgers does not know that we use their product. We buy our own.
