A few years ago I changed to tea for my morning wake up, but on occasion, I'll have a cup of coffee. Smith has a pot full everyday, but the only coffee I'll drink at home is from a local roaster, Silver Bean Coffee. I was first introduced to it by the local community station, KRCL, as Silver Bean gives a pound of coffee to everyone who donates to the morning shows during fund raising week (this week!).
Sunday morning Smith had to be up and out of the house at o'dark thirty (the poor guy is not a morning person). While I am the morning person, a bad nights sleep kept me in bed until I couldn't stand it any longer. (Even the dog slept in, which he rarely does.)
I dressed (in case Moxie woke up and I had to rush him out) and headed for the kitchen. Smith had taken time to ready the French Press with coffee and write instructions on a sticky note. I love his last line "Push - wake up". It was lovely wake up call.
