Had Your Coffee Today?

April 21, 2010

Mmmmmmm!! I just took my first sip of coffee this morning, and oh, does it ever taste good! I used to drink quite a lot of coffee, always had a cup nearby. Now I usually only have one or two cups a day. I'm not really sure why I slowed down so much. I recently cut out an article that says how coffee is good for you.

According to this research, drinking three or more cups of coffee a day reduces stroke risk by 48 percent. Another study found that people who drank three to five cups of coffee a day had a 65 percent lower risk of developing dementia than those who drank little to none. Research also shows that coffee may help prevent Parkinson's disease, type-2 diabetes, liver cancer and gallstones.

Obviously this is not true if you are pregnant. During pregnancy, less coffee is better. More than 200 mg of caffeine a day (one to two cups of regular coffee) increased the risk of miscarriage in pregnant women by 25 percent.

Now I shall have a second cup of coffee, and share some photos with you. Today, I have another magnolia tree for you. I took these photos Monday on the way to my doctor appointment. The tree was in someone's front yard, and the owners were out working in their yard. I stopped and asked permission to take the photos. This is such a pretty flowering tree.

And this is a close-up to show it's beautiful flowers.
Today, I have some laundry to do
(scatter rugs) lol, and then I think I might just do a bit of designing. I need to make a few more elements to finish up the month of June DD's, and then I'll be caught up through September. I also want to build up my supply of QP's. Tomorrow, I will have another QP freebie for you to match the "Spring Sunshine" kit.

I'm off now to start my day. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a splendid day.
