I’ve just learned about a fabulous Swedish custom known as fika.  I never knew that a word existed to describe one of my favorite activities.  Fika is the idea of taking a break in the middle of the day to have coffee and a little goody with your friends.  I love the ritual of coffee.  Grinding really good beans, brewing the brew.  And the smell!  Glorious!  Then sitting down with that hot cup.  Pure bliss.  

I haven’t been able to have coffee in two days, because I’ve been sick with the stomach flu.  Tomorrow I can’t have it because I have a long trip to make across Wyoming on my way to Colorado.  My bladder, coffee, and road trips don’t mix.  Ahh! but when I get to Colorado, I can enjoy fika with one of my very favorite fika companions – my Lalie!
