Sunday morning. Nothing better.

Sunday morning

Cabin Door Coffee

Boots here.  There is something that is just so satisfying about going through your Sunday morning ritual.  Make coffee. Get paper.  Find crossword puzzle.  Relax.  Proceed with the day’s mind challenge.  Exercise your brain muscles.  It all sounds like so much fun, doesn’t it?

coffee-beans-759024_960_720Are you, too, a Sunday morning crossword person?  The sort of person who subscribes to the local rag just so that you can get your daily (or weekly — depending on the circulation of your paper) dose of crosswording?  And if it’s not crosswording, maybe your Sunday morning is devoted to writing or reading or listening to NPR or watching the dogs sleep or writing in your journal or talking on the phone with family.  Maybe it’s time to pay bills or to sort through the stack of paperwork that has grown throughout the past week.  The one thing all of this Sunday morning fun has in common is coffee.  Good ol’ plain and simple Joe.

Today, enjoy your coffee experience.  Drink it straight up black.  Dress it up with sugar and sprinkles.  Vanilla syrup, lavender syrup, almond syrup.  Nutmeg, cinnamon, or cocoa powder.  Ristretto or long or perfectly-timed shots.  Non-fat, whole, or breve.  No matter how you take your coffee, take some time today to just enjoy the world.  Think about the traveling that your coffee beans had to do to find its way to your kitchen.

Coffee grows all over the world.  Appreciate the geography that has gone into you enjoying your favorite morning drink.  When I think about drinking a beverage made from beans from Sumatra, I simply marvel at the splendor of it all.   This week we are going to be talking about the different parts of the world that grows coffee.

I don’t know about you but I feel pretty lucky that we have the opportunity to partake in such a satisfying morning ritual.  Don’t you agree?  Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Morning Coffee

Boots here to wish you a Happy Happy Sunday.  I don’t know about you but there is something special about the leisurely perspective that a Sunday morning has to offer.  Sunday is a day to sleep in, to go back to sleep to resolve a weird dream that has an awkward or disturbing ending, and to make time to stretch before getting into a vertical position.  Sunday is always a great day to join the human race.

It’s a day to get caught up on bills, make out a weekly to-do list, and organize the hodgey-podgey stack of random little notes to myself that have accumulated during the week.  A day to squiggle more notes on my white board on the wall and to micro-erase the things that I did manage to get done in the previous weekdays.  In short, I love Sundays.

And one of my favorite things to do is to grab my journal and doodle some drawings or scribble some words onto the page.

But one thing that is not a leisurely activity on Sunday morning is making my coffee.  I just can’t wait to get my Joe brewed and commence Operation Catch-up.  Sunday Morning Coffee is one of those week-long-awaited luxuries that I just don’t want to mess around with.  I’m not one of those people who starts a load of laundry or empties the dishwasher or sweeps the front porch before I brew my coffee.  No.  Sunday morning is about getting caffeinated and investing some focused attention into my one day of the week that says I can prioritize my preferences — which always feels like a brighter degree of great.

I just ordered one of these planners (click on the image or link below) and it is one heck of a goal organizer.  The best part is that it focuses on breaking down your goals into baby steps so that you can find your way more easily.  Do check it out.  I am really loving mine!
