I had to think about this one for a bit. Then I realized, Beginning, for me, is coffee.
I wake up every morning, just after my husband, and make him a fresh latte to take to work. Once he’s on his way, I have my breakfast and do a bit of cleaning around the house. But my day does not begin until I’ve had my coffee.
I like a medium-dark roast, ground fresh each morning and brewed with tap water. Our water is slightly hard, which I prefer over softened, for coffee. My coffee is taken black – no cream, no sugar, no fuss.
With the first sip, my day officially begins.
Until I’ve had coffee, today remains the dregs of yesterday.
