my daily coffee
My friend Jessica is doing a project about coffee and requested that I send her a photo of my daily cup of joe. I ended up with these two.
In the first picture, I set my cup on the windowsill because I wanted to show off how beautiful it is. I have a small collection of coffee mugs. Some were given to me by other people and some I purchased for myself, usually secondhand. I love collecting strawberry things for my kitchen so when I found this one last year I knew I had to have it.
In the second picture, I am working on yesterday's dishes. I don't have a dishwasher and I have found the best way to stay on top of dishes is to do them first thing when I wake up in the morning. It sometimes feels meditative even. I love starting the day off with a clean kitchen!
Do you have a morning coffee (or tea? or something else?) ritual? What elements are essential for you?
