“Jimmy, do you smell that?” I asked my husband who was snuggled
under the covers next to me in the queen size bed in the guest room in my son’s
house in Vermont.
“It smells like hazelnut coffee,” he replied as he sat up in
the bed. “Now I smell bacon and toast,” he added.

coffee that was on the counter next to the toaster.
I watched as Michelle opened the single serve envelop and
poured its contents into the mug. Here is your coffee, she said as she stirred
the contents into the hot water just before she handed me the cup.
“Humm! This is delicious, Michelle,” I pronounced after I
