photoblog image .....gezellig, een kopje koffie, coffee.....

.....gezellig, een kopje koffie, coffee.....

.....Gezellig, een kopje koffie....

'Gezellig' is a real Dutch word, almost not translatable,  it is more a feeling, the cozy feeling of drinking a cup of coffee with a dear friend and have a nice talk.

Millions of people around the world love nothing more than to start their day with a steaming cup of coffee. The smell, the taste, the caffeine lift and the shared experience of coffee have become a staple of our modern life and culture.

In addition, there is significant authoritative information available that drinking coffee has many benefits for our health and well being.

 

Please read:

'What's new?' coffee and mental performance, an interview with Dr. Astrid Nehlig,

I sure hope your very dear friend does not get sick and tired of coffee, Astrid! Or is that even possible??

This image is more than Gezellig! It's a Likey for me! Ontzettend bedankt, meer dan je weet.
Picturit: I think my friend never gets tired of koffie, at least I don't hope so.
You are so right, it is more than gezellig, dank je wel dat je er een likey van gemaakt hebt, it is yours....maar dat weet je al, graag gedaan, meer dan je weet.......

A beautifully and funnily composed pic -with wonderful colours and reflections and informations... -and very Dutch- ik weet wat je meent- ja, 'gezellig' en 'lekker' zijn enkele van de belangrijkste Nederlandse woorden, maar'hart en ziel' en een 'goede reis' en een 'gelukkig begin' enz. zijn verdere woordjes die ik vandaag aan mijn hoofd heb - met de beste wensen en hartelijke groeten van Philine
Picturit: Philine, eindelijk heb ik de tijd om deze reactie van jou te beantwoorden, ja, hart en ziel, een gelukkig begin, dat zijn woorden die heel veel betekenis hebben, maar ook 'gezellig' 'lekker' zijn gevoelswoorden.
We moeten gewoon geduld hebben en hopen op een goed einde, de avakntie was in ieder geval goed, we hebben er alle drie van genoten.
Dank je wel Philine,
Astrid.
My daughter Kathryn likes Douwe Egberts Koffie. Me, I'm a tea drinkersmile

I see you have your own brand of coffee now! I love coffee too, but like to start the day with tea. Coffee for me is at 11.00am - coffee break! Have a wonderful holiday and come back refreshed smile

Picturit: We had a great time in NYC, a city alive for 24 hours, I start the day with koffie, but I drink only one cup, if I am alone in the house.
The rest is water.....
Astrid.

I wait for mine until 11am - tea first thing (very English) - it gives me something to look forward to, especially if there is an almond croissant to go with it!
Picturit: You really know how to enjoy life!!!!!
I start the day with water/fruit/bread/coffee/ and every other day a run in the polder.....
I enjoy that too...and it keeps me fit.
Astrid.
Nicely contrived table top shot Astrid, enjoy your break.
Picturit: We had a great time, thank you as always, Brian.

Excellent picture of my favourite dutch brand - after Palm. And the border in Douwe's colours.

You slipped a little my dear, the reflection of Astrid 2008 reads PUNTEN DOOS. Heh, heh.

I am taking a break this week also. Met een lekkere bakje ook nog.
Picturit: Geweldig, het was ook een punten doos, ik bewaar hier mijn punten in voor gratis tonguetongue geschenken, o.a. die glazen bekers.
Hope you had a nice break and yes the koffie was very good.
Astrid.
très belle photo
Picturit: Merci beaucoup!
Astrid.
That was sneaky of you, Astrid, posting a cougheey image when my back is turned...LOL I like this but am baffled as to why I cannot see the reflection in the table of Astrid 2008.
Picturit: tonguetongue I am not sneaky...erm.....am I not??? This was a tribute for Ginnie for it would be her first day working at Starbucks, it was the least I could do, I was flying this same day to NYC...
erm..my refelction.....oops..that was too difficult...grin
Astrid.
Such a nice crisp image. Great lighting and composition too!

Enjoy your holiday Astrid. smile
Picturit: Our holiday was just great, we loved every second of it, I will post some pictures.
Thank you for your nice words about the picture.
Astrid
Excellent arrangement and composition. Great use of lighting and reflections. Lovely tones and the clarity is perfect.
Picturit: John, thank you so much for this great compliment, this was/is a tribute for Ginnie who started working at Starbucks, I am so proud of her, she is my best friend, this was the least I could do.
Astrid.

Hulde voor de foto en de beschrijving (gezellig smile)

Hoop dat je een goede vakantie hebt!
Picturit: Die vakanti was geweldig, dank je wel, 'gezellig' is zo moeilijk om the vertalen, het is een gevoel, maar mijn complimenten voor de Vlamen, die kunnen het zo mooi in echt Nederlands zeggen, wij moeten er om de haverklap een Engels woord doorheen gooien.

Nice composition! There is so much to look at and enjoy in this shot. Think I better go fix a cup of coffee... smile
Picturit: A day without at least one kopje koffie is not lived....grin,
it is our biggest brand in The Netherlands, I only drink one cup a day though.
Thank you for your kind words.
Astrid.
Hope you are fine; I like the blue sheen on the right of the photo.
Picturit: Thank you Wim, excuse me for my late reply, much is going on right here, I try to post this week though, like last week,
next week I will be visiting Tracy and meet Chad, Chris and Bill.
the blue light was my TV in the attic...wink
