Greek Coffee

Greek coffee

I love weekends because it's always nice to slow down and take time for coffee. I snapped this photo last Sunday morning as we enjoyed coffee with our neighbors. We always make sure to have coffee with our neighbors on weekends regardless of how busy we may be. Good conversation is so therapeutic.


  1. You are so right about taking time out. The weather is perfect too. We sent the kids out with my in-laws! I'm enjoying some quiet at home!

  2. Liz,
    It's so easy to brush it off- but it's so important and essential to relationships as well.

    Lucky you, enjoy the quiet time!
    My kids are watching cartoons, so it's relatively quiet for me too.

    Enjoy the day! :)

  3. Nothing like a cup of coffee with friends. Have a lovely week.

  4. Εγώ στα Ελληνικά θα σου γράφω γιατί ξέρω οτι ξέρεις.Αφού διαφημίζεις συνέχεια την πατρίδα μου με όποιον τρόπο δεν έχω παρα να σου πώ ένα ευχαριστώ.Καλό σου βράδυ.

  5. @ Ivy...Thank you. I wish you a beautiful week full of creativity & warmth!

    @ Maria...I resisted for so long. I didn't think I had time. But once I let down my guard I realized how beneficial it is. I think that it's something taken for granted. We did the same with our neighbors in the U.S. We always set time aside. I hope that you can find more time to enjoy coffee & conversation. Too bad we're not neighbors it would be part our routine!!:)

    Have a great week Maria! xo

    @ Thalassokrator-
    Ναι, ξέρω ελληνικά ... λίγο. Είμαι εκτιμώ το κομπλιμέντο, είμαι ταπεινωθεί. Η Ελλάδα που ζούμε τώρα και θα ήθελα να μοιραστώ την ομορφιά που μας περιβάλλει, με όλους. Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ για τα καλά σας λόγια.

    Παραθέτω το αγαπημένο μου είναι ότι η υπογραφή για τα μηνύματα μου ...

    Και πάλι, σας ευχαριστώ! Καλή εβδομάδα!:)

  6. A "metrio" for me, parakalo. ;)

  7. Peter,

    Of course! I'll have one ready & waiting for you next summer!

    Have a wonderful week!

  8. Cheryl,
    It's all vital for one's sanity: coffee, passing the morning with neighbors, taking time out...well, maybe coffee is not completely necessary.

    Incidentally, the full pink ball pops up in tonight's sky, hope you'll be able to step out to your balcony and enjoy its ascent.

  9. Biddy-
    yes, I love passing the time with neighbors and coffee. My koumbara is in town from NY and we've had more coffee than we probably need! Love it though.

    The sun is setting so I'll step out shortly. I need to take a moment to breathe! Long day with the munchkins :)

    Have a great month Biddy!!! :)
