In keeping with past themes like The Commoner's Favorite Things. I'm beginning a bittersweet ode to summer of 2012.
The best thing this summer was I decided NOT to work. I swallowed the guilt of money not earned and decided I really needed a mental vacation.
I'm so glad I did this. I'm recharged, refreshed, and ready for the next 175 work days (less if the initiative fails).
This week I'm going to do a rare daily posting as I look back fondly at the best Summer 2012 had to offer (Trip to NY not included).
Well here is one of the things I loved about this summer. I present to you Coffee.
I disappeared from Starbucks this summer. I never really passed by one and certainly wasn't going to get in my car in the morning and drive there.
I'm an early riser-up with the sun and the birds. That's all year long 7 days a week. But in the summer you can make a cup of coffee at that time and you can sit on the couch and watch TV-(Still ESPN-no local news for me).
You can read a magazine, or a book (more on that another day), do a puzzle, play face book and then go get another cup. Then you can decide what to do. It doesn't matter you have all day...
So my first offering of what I loved about summer 2012-My morning cup of Joe.
