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?

I love a clean kitchen in the morning too but I need to clean it the night before- I can see how your morning dishes would be meditative though! I love setting my coffee timer the night before too, I know I sound like a Folgers commercial but the smell always get's me up in the morning!

Oh, I have goals of doing them the night before some day! haha At least for now my system works out for me, because my classes don't start until mid-morning but then I have night classes a lot of nights and never ever feel like being productive after that.

I am so envious that you have a coffee pot with a timer! I would definitely like to wake up to the smell of coffee. My parents used to drink Folgers exclusively so I have had my fair share and I don't think there is anything wrong with living in a Folgers commercial! Unless, of course, it's this one:
