The sunrise today is so beautiful. Deep orange fading to yellow and moving on up to blue. Glorious!

Sumatra in the morning - should it be tea?
Monday morning - a strong cup of Sumatra coffee, Starbucks of course and Good Morning! It's still dark at 6:15 am and a bit cool here in lower LA - (Lower Alabama) but it's Monday and thinking about getting back into the hamster wheel of trying to get Contractors to actually pay us makes for a challenge in the optimism department, but no matter - optimism is a must. On that note, with a probable challenge ahead, should it be tea instead of coffee? The coffee gets me going but since I love it and drink it until the pot is gone, would it be better to make myself get in the habit of tea? I think some of the issue is that we get into a ritual habit, making the coffee, smelling the coffee, that first taste in the morning...maybe if I have a tea maker...I made a tea with lemon balm, lemon catnip, rose hips, lavender - but that was for my sister who has had trouble sleeping for years. I think I'll put this on my list to do - find a mixture of herbs that would be good for a morning tea, with a kick! Ginseng comes to mind.
