This morning I woke up to a cold, wet nose in my ear and a warm, purring body laying on my arm. It was before the sun rose and it felt far earlier than it actually was. On mornings like these, when I just want to stay in bed snuggling the cat I have to remind myself that I used to wake up even earlier than this to go running before even the busses were running. Sometimes that is enough to get out of bed. Today, I realized I might need a little bit more than that - like a good cup of coffee. We've been up late the past few nights and it's starting to show! Eventually, The Boy reminded me that we both had to be at work and I slowly pulled myself out of bed, put myself together, packed some food and got on my way.
Traffic was unusually light today, which made me happy but got me to work well over a half hour early, which meant one thing: a Caribou stop for a latte. It was cold this morning - well into the thirties - and I wanted something hot as part of my typical yogurt and granola breakfast. My coffee beverage of choice is the soy milk latte, so that's what I went with and I definitely did not regret it. It was the perfect complement to my containerized yogurt-and-granola breakfast today.
Of course, the shot of caffeine (that I most definitely was looking for) was very helpful in overcoming my sleepy feelings this morning. In fact, I think I'm about to go get another cup of hot coffee right now.
See you soon!
