Well, I skipped yesterday’s Daily Prompt. There was really no excuse, as I spent the day working from home in a feverish state, followed by watching literally everything on Hulu. The most interaction I got all day was when I accidentally opened the door for the UPS guy, who was actually headed to my neighbor’s house. “Oh, that’s not for me?” Closes door slowly in shame.
Today’s Daily Prompt is Just Another Day, which asks the question: “Our days are organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?”
Making my coffee, obviously. These days I have been buying slightly fancier coffee, so I have to grind the beans first. This actually saves us money in the long run, as I am not dumping half the bag in like I normally would.
Fun story about my beautiful, shiny coffee maker: A few years ago, Ben broke my coffeepot. I’m not 100% sure how he managed to do that, but it happened. He knew that he would be killed on the spot if I woke up to no coffeepot, so he went to Target and purchased the upgrade.
It also happened to be my birthday, or some time around then, so the coffeepot was a birthday gift. At the time I thought it wasn’t the most romantic gift — not that I have ever been terribly romantic, but an appliance seemed a little too practical. However, it turned out to be the best thing he ever got me. Well, maybe not. But I now have a huge appreciation for practical gifts. Nothing says “I care” more than a coffeepot.
