starting the day off right

February 8, 2007

It is far too easy to bring my breakfast to work with me, but I am trying to make it a point to start my day at the dining table with a fresh cup of coffee, something to read and, if I’m lucky, my husband.

This morning: last night’s fresh baked banana bread and a hot cup of coffee. I feel ready to conquer the world—or at least tackle my to-do list.

    I loved your post today! I wish I could be disciplined enough to get up early and do the same…

    That’s a good way to focus and get perspective. Thanks for the good idea! (:

    That sounds so wonderful. I may have to steal your noble goal.

    I saw this pic and read the words ‘freshly baked banana bread’. Then I got this sudden urge to eat one! Now, I feel like making one. And I might just do that this weekend. :D
