My resolution for 2009 was to start a coffee habit. Prompted by a ridiculous number of runs to Starbucks, I went out and acquired a coffee grinder and French press, intending to make coffee every morning and to preempt the coffee shop visits. As with all good New Year's resolutions, this instead completely stopped my coffee drinking in its tracks, and all of my shiny new coffee accouterments languished.
Since starting teaching in the fall, however, I have rediscovered Saturday mornings as a time to relax and enjoy a slower start to the day. Now, coffee has now become an essential part of this Saturday morning ritual. I look forward to it all week!
