get dressed

In coffee on March 22, 2011 at 8:05 pm

so there are two kinds of people and when we were kids we were allowed to loaf around without getting dressed all day. this worked for some of us who could be quite productive in our peejays but i think it always went against the grain for me. i’m related to people who don’t really get going until mid-afternoon and then can keep going until very late in the day. or until the early hours of the next day. myself, i like to get up with the sun, build some energy with a bowl of raspberry ginger crisp cereal and a dainty pink melitta pitcher of coffee and enjoy a natural arc of progression throughout the day. as some of my family members start their motors around two o’clock, i start to go downhill. high tea helps re-energize of course but believe me i am not planning on getting much accomplished after the enjoyable pick me up.

baby sister. she owns two businesses.

but since i am not doing much these days other than choosing favorite coffee shops to sample and blog about, i find that i am often not leaving the house until two nowadays either. and today i am waiting for the farmers’ market to open (2pm). have you noticed how everyone is grinning and beaming at farmers’ markets? it must all the gorgeous produce and the fresh air. i always get turned on by leafy kales, chards, and mustard greens. my sister always ends up with sausage, cheese, and pasties in her basket. i’m delighted that this market up my street has an espresso cart where they make beautiful cappuccinos with a lovely leaf design in the creamy foam.

  1. Pasties in her basket? That’s odd. Maybe you meant pastries…

  2. no, no. plural of pasty (meat pie).

  3. Oh. Never mind!
