Francesca, who hosts Corner View,
spotlighted her morning coffee.
I decided to show how my day begins as well
since it happens this way every day
at least Monday through Friday.
I get the coffee ready the night before,
but I don't use a timer.
I just plug it in and hit the start button on my way to let the cats up
from the basement.
I have to have a cream or flavored 'something' in my coffee,
and the flavor of the week
is the same as one of my favorite candy bars:
I used to have a protein shake
but now I have oatmeal with soy milk and 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
stirred into it.
While microwaving the oatmeal,
I read the daily Psalm calendar.
The other staples to my mornings
--even on weekends--
are my devotions
and my journal writing.
I can make it through the day without the oatmeal
or the calendar,
but coffee and time spent reading and writing
keep me sane,
as I maneuver my way through
a day of teaching English to freshmen and juniors.
