the coffee trick

Warm toasty morning bodies still in bed and neither one of us wants to get up. I can tell it's cold outside. My love so sweetly sighs and says "We should have some coffee" then smiles and snuggles deeper into the covers. "We should have some coffee" means "Will you go make some coffee?"

We take turns with this little trick, which is why it works. Today is my turn and I lay there for a minute, rallying, planning what I'm going to put on to make the coffee so I don't spend any extra seconds cold and naked. I spot my socks, discarded last night before I'd climbed into bed. My eyes scan the room for pants and a hoodie. Ok....I see everything I need. Three, two, one and I'm out of the covers and into my clothes in the blink of an eye.

I turn on the tree (mmmm). The house is perfectly silent (already loving that I'm up). I sit and stretch as the coffee brews, looking out at sunsplashed trees. Tomorrow or the next day, I'll pull the coffee trick and stay snuggled in the warm nest but this morning I'm kind of loving being up....

We do this too! It's great, and when I remember my trick is to set up and program the night before. Papa get's a loving surprise if he is up first!
