thimbles full of coffee
I do love my morning cup of coffee! After getting all the girls off to school, I curl up with my oatmeal, fruit and a mug of my favorite vice. I spend about a half an hour checking in with my friends on Facebook or catching up on my blogs. It sounds silly, but that little bit of relaxation gets my day off to a good start. Working from home, I enjoy that bit of connection before beginning my day.
Sooooo... this week, we're on vacation! My morning cup of coffee has been interupted. I almost brought my favorite mug, but opted not to because it is breakable. This week I am drinking out of pink thimbles, instead! Sunday morning, my husband and I laughed as we tripped over each other making multiple runs to the coffee pot for another 1/4 cup of coffee.
This morning, I opted for a different solution. I enjoy an uninterupted breakfast. So I grabbed two thimbles and filled them up! My ten-year-old caught me taking a picture of the little mugs and asked why I was doing something so silly. My 15-year-old laughed and assured her, "because she's mom. It's what she does!"
Ah! Coffee and kids who understand my zaniness! Gotta love a vacation morning!
Have a happy day!
