Nope, not what you’re thinking. I know I generally refer to the Hubby and the Daughter as the two loves but not this time. I’m referring to my love for coffee and a particular corner in my home. A corner I love sitting in. A perfect corner to put my foot up or just curl and read.
My love or addiction for coffee is pretty well known in the family. Everyone knows not to mess around with me when I’m in a crazed-caffeine-deprived state. My morning is miserable if by any stroke of luck, I’m late in getting my coffee. I cannot have my morning cup rushing through the kitchen and doing chores. My day starts at 5:30am and generally by the time I sit with my coffee is around 8:30. Yes I’m able to survive till then since before that every thing is done in rush mode. So the vision of a cuppa is like the light at the end of the tunnel 🙂 . It honestly keeps me going !! Generally by that time the Daughter is off and so is the Hubby. So I take my time and sit leisurely with a cup before doing anything further. It charges me for the day and I love cupping my hands around the mug and getting the warmth. Somehow this gesture is very relaxing and therapeutic for me. Yes I’m sort of weird :p . It’s funny that on those days I wake up late, you would think I’ll have a three hour window before I need my fill since that’s how my weekdays are but no such luck. So on those times if I sleep in and wake up around 8ish, you would find me going about like a headless chicken if I’ve not had my coffee by 9. Yes 9 is like the cut off time for me. But having said all this I must admit that I generally do not drink more than a cup on most days. Occasionally I’ll take an evening cup. In the evenings I love a nice frothy cappuccino or macchiato. But that’s very rare. My evening cuppa by the corner ❤️❤️
Now coming to my second love. It’s a corner in the office/study area of our home. It’s a perfect spot to sit and laze reading a book. It’s that place I sit and love looking at the neighbors walking their dogs or Daughter biking on a summer evening. It’s the perfect spot to sit and engage the Hubby in conversation if he’s having a quiet day at work on those days he’s working from home. It’s also a spot where I’ve spent a lot of time just sitting in a companionable silence while hearing the clicking of his laptop. It’s a spot where I’ve done tons of research before going on a trip. This corner has seen me in a fit of laughter and has been a silent witness to my tears. I bet if this corner could speak it would have loads of stories to share.The much loved corner ❤️❤️
