Greetings from the Desert!!! Happy New Year! We are enjoying the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Often this can be a time of busyness as stores deal with gift exchanges, people rush to finish the last projects for 2012, and businesses close their books for this year.

Mead Minutes: Learning from the hospital cleaners

Good morning from Al Ain!! Today I created a blend of Ethiopian, Honduran, and Kenyan coffee. The Honduran was a lighter roast. The Kenyan beans were roasted to a very dark espresso. The Ethiopian beans added a bold, moderate roast. Together, each of the differences joined to form a very nice blend. Coffee junkies often […]

Greetings from the desert!!! I had a great walk around the neighborhood this morning. A gentle breeze shifted the warm around, giving a cooling effect. The sun was rising beyond the rocky peak.

Greetings from the desert! Early morning is still a little cool, but the sun warms the air quickly. Spring passed by quickly as the trees dropped their leaves. Our first summer in Al Ain looms ahead. Stories of blistering heat are shared with us ‘newbies’ — I can hardly wait. I already think it is […]

Mead Minutes: Leaving our comfort zone

Good morning!!  I made my coffee, opened the door, and went to descend the steps into my ‘Man Cave’ when I had second thoughts.  Yesterday the winds built to a fury force, lifting up the loose sand and turning the sky a dull brown.  Sand storm.  Although I was safely hidden in my small exam […]
