Monday and the Living Ain't Easy

This morning begins with a bizarre, acid-trip-esque dream involving aerobic exercise and the friendly (He was exceptionally- almost weirdo status friendly, for a New Yorker) janitor from an old job. This confusing trip through my sub-conscious was abruptly interrupted by the cacophonous caterwauling of two cats fighting at the base of my bed. As luck would have it, my foot would get the brunt of their angst! I tried to go back to sleep after the melee, but my scratched and burning toes were too much of an annoyance. Off to find a cure at the bottom of a cup of coffee.

Bumbling about still in a half haze-(Favorite Guy had an event this weekend so I'm still in max-socialization recharge mode) I begin to brew a cup of joe. Fill the filter, replace it. Fill the pitcher with water. Pour the water in the maker's well. Turn on the coffee maker. Sit at desk, check Etsy, e-mails and read blogs in no particular order. Now, generally the worse thing that can happen is I realize somewhere between full lucidity and grouchiness that I have not turned the coffee maker on. Not today. Today, I hear the piddle of freshly brewed goodness as it drips onto the counter top and subsequently the floor. The counter top and the floor?! Notice after, "Pour the water in the maker's well", there is no, "Place the pitcher on the base", before turning on the coffee maker. Well, yeah that...Happy Monday!

oh, how i can relate.

kinda like when preparing to cook...sauteing vegetables for example:

--heat up oil as i chop veggies.
--place veggies in a bowl in fridge
--go back to whatever i was doing before cooking
--smell oil burning and realize i'd forgotten to actually do the cooking part

Oh my. You must have really needed that coffee. How else can you explain forgetting the coffee pot? Get some rest.

Oh, Mondays! And Tuesdays! And Wednesdays! And did I mention Thursdays? I definitely sympathise with you.

And fly, I have been there, too, with the cooking, that's why my golden rule when making food is 'Get all ingredients out, pronto'.

Greetings from London

Too many half asleep coffee moments like this led me to start preparing the coffee at night. All I can properly handle in the morning is the "on" switch.

Oh my! We've done similar things often in the haze of sleepiness...
Most recently burning up a tea kettle because we forgot the water was boiling....

Mondays are never good for me. That's why I thought I'd try to post something, anything on Mondays to bring a smile. :)

Hope the rest of your week is better!
