Three Things: One Morning Edition

2012 May 21

Fairfield Porter’s Iced Coffee, shown below, makes me think of lazy mornings; weekend mornings when you have nothing you must do, and nowhere to be. So I’ve decided to make a morning out of it. Our morning begins with waking up to the sun setting the curtains aglow, followed by a trip to the kitchen for… toast? A croissant? Coffee, certainly. And then it’s onward to the three-season porch, coffee in tow, to settle into the morning’s newspaper, and a good book.

P.S. Next Monday will be one such morning for me (and hopefully for you, too). Three Things won’t appear next week due to the Memorial Day holiday, to return the following week on Monday, June 4.
