Ever discovered that the answer to your problem was right in front of you? That is what happened to me. I was making a pot of coffee – Ducks ‘n a Row RUNS on coffee 🙂 – and looked at the plastic lid in my hand. “Oh my goodness – a black COASTER!” I exclaimed. The size was perfect. The color was perfect. It was soft plastic and unlikely to scratch a desktop. And, I am an avid enough coffee drinker that I would soon have a whole set.
First, I put one under the little vase of flowers that I received as an end-of-the-year teacher gift from one of my preschool students. No worries about drips from that one. Problem solved!
Another went under my hot cup of coffee. Perfect!
