An essential start to my morning is a good Cuppa Joe. Without it I just can't get going. I rise before everyone in the house except for our boxer Angus and the cats. The cats want breakfast and Angus needs to go outside and take care of his morning "dooties". Everyone else is asleep. The house is quiet. Just me and my hot Cuppa Joe. I will drink it black but prefer to have cream with it. Taking a sip, feeling it warm my insides and start to run through my veins, getting me started with my day.
When the warmer mornings of spring and summer arrive I move to the back patio to enjoy the smells and sounds of early morning and watch the sun rise over the mountains and rolling fields of wheat. What could be better while enjoying my morning Cuppa Joe?
