My Coffee Routine

There is something preciously soothing about making a pot of coffee: the whir of grinding beans as the aroma hits the air; pouring water to the tippy-top line; hearing the drip-drip of Breakfast Blend while I slather peanut butter on two sides of bread. There's a chill in the air which makes the promise of a hot drink even sweeter. Thick socks on my feet, and a soft sweatshirt blanket me while I assemble school lunches like a factory drone. And even though I struggle to meet the early morning, the promise of a cup of coffee awakens my senses and brightness my sleepy little corner of the world.

Today I'm grateful for coffee in this one simple life.

What morning routine do you love?

  1. Nothing like the smell of fresh coffee...but most times a grab a Diet Coke before hurdling kids to the bus for school. After having Diet Coke, I balance out with a cup of Decaf (-:

    1. There really isn't, is there? I smiled at your Diet Coke routine, one of my favorite people did that too.

  2. Coffee (even if it's decaf) in the morning, tea in the evening, and hopefully everything in between falls into place :-)

  4. I love waking up and making my coffee too. First I make my kids breakfast and while they eat, I make my pot. So relaxing. :) I love walking my daughter to school in the morning too.

  9. I too am in my fuzzy warm socks - big sweatshirt and a blanket - sitting in the dark with our dogs... in my favorite chair - absorbing the smell of the day - feeling the warmth of my coffee steaming into my face and warming my hands.......... ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. oh, then I have to snap out of it and get ready for work!
    cheers, dana
