This blustery weather reminds me of early chilly mornings of my childhood.
I was always awake first, usually before sunrise. Would make some cereal and watch cartoons or infomercials.
Making my parents coffee was one of my first chores. They stressed the utmost importance of this special job.
"You fill the grinder to here, grind for 10-12 seconds, put in a filter..." My dad instructed. I looked on, wide eyed, absorbing every word so I would do it exactly right. Now I see what they were doing :) tricksy parents.
This song takes me right back to those cozy mornings.
the rain song from Disney's Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Now the brisk air and dark evenings make me want to make these spooky little dumplings of love...
