Mornings are rather quiet here at my patio apartment. My Yorkies, Abi and Charlie, are here of course. And my friend Israel usually joins me for coffee.
Since I like to wake up slowly without bright light, I turn on this little lamp of 40 watts. It provides enough light to make my breakfast here on the counter and prepare my coffee without harsh overhead light.
I have a coffee bar set up on a rescued kitchen cart I spiffed up and painted. The vintage coffee tin on top of the mug rack holds coffee filters.
I always have a Mason jar filled with coffee beans and a candle. It helps provide a cozy ambiance to my morning.
Once I settle down in my favorite chair with my coffee, I begin to read email and carry on with my daily job as a blogger.
Each day, I am happy to rise and shine, go through my yoga stretching routine, and carry on my morning. Having this routine is how I make mornings manageable.
How do you make mornings manageable at your house?
