Dutch Design Leather, Est 2013

This weeks #weeklyphotochallenge2016, Notebook & Beverage,  should be right up my alley, since I do like making shots of my Notebooks and I love my beverages…specially my coffee. Being Dutch, coffee is a thing that is the pride of every home, at least that is how I remember it from when I was young. Besides, … making coffee in those days really was a thing.


You’d have to measure the correct amount of coffee and add just the right amount of water…, but, as it is with any beverage, people get used to a certain taste, so the only right coffee is the home made coffee you’d drink every day, with a certain blend and a certain strength…


Well I must admit, I am glad that this has gotten so much easier over the years, now with those pre-portioned coffeemakers, there’s really nothing to it.


Obviously there’s still different blends and different tastes. Which means that in our house there are at least 4 different blends, since we all like something else.


I love that you can do that with the coffee makers of today.


Now Back to the Notebook and beverage, there’s a little thing with me and my coffee. I used to drink coffee all day long. Being in IT, there was no escaping that. With my high blood pressure however, my GP told me I should drink less coffee. So I made a little rule for myself.


I can only drink coffee in the mornings and only after 10 o`clock…


and now that I run my own business, I have added some rules to it and am only allowed to drink coffee after I finished the first tasks of the day and get to sit down with my notebook and planner, to plan out the rest of the day.


I kinda like my little rules, they make life easier and following up on those gives me the satisfied feeling that even if I didn’t get anything else done like I planned that day, I still did those things on my everyday list and it still feels like I accomplished something.

Really it is about the little things in Life, especially when recovering from a burn-out, which is still something I deal with everyday.
