I don’t have many indulgences, but fresh ground coffee beans for my coffee each morning is one of them. Before my shower, and before I’m even awake, really, I stumble to the kitchen, pour beans in the grinder and get the coffee started for the day.
This is also a sign to the kitties to run to the kitchen and line up for treats. Sad are the mornings when I’ve forgotten to stock up on treats- I try to pass off their regular food but they know better and walk away in disdain, tails twitching.
No matter how busy the morning, I try to grab a few minutes by the window, cup in hand, enjoying the first few sips of my morning brew. But the best mornings are the ones with no agenda and no deadline, to savor an entire mug and ease into the day.
