habit #4

This entry is #32 in keri smith's 100 ideas: draw some of your habits. I've mentioned sitting too close to the steering wheel and two others. Here's habit #4: I never finish my coffee. I spend a lot of money on Starbucks French Roast beans. I make the perfect cup of coffee every morning. I put it in this favorite mug. I wait until it's the perfect temperature. I take three or four sips. Then I abandon it.

You know, the other day I read someone's blog entry about their little rituals. I so enjoyed it and have been trying to get conscious of my own. I love how aware you are of this one. And it reminds me of Martha Beck's Joy Diet where she talks about an approach to food where you eat/drink it while you are truly, deeply enjoying it. After that, skip it!

And thanks so much for your support and positivity today. I really appreciate it!

I think I have that same cup. Fun rendering. You are starting to do shadows now.

I rarely finish my coffee, but mine is iced and A REALLY BIG cup and if I did finished it I would probably never sleep.

About your commute...do you drive or can you take the train? I think the train might be a good place to draw. Just a thought...

Caroline, I do this too. For me, it's almost like having a fire in the fireplace, with a cup of coffee sitting somewhere close, cooling.

You saying it outloud here, and drawing it, makes it feel less.. I don't know, wrong. Oh the capacity for feeling guilty! Endless.

Anyway, I think of you a lot. I love your blog. I look at it for renewal.

Hi Terry, Melba, Catalana and Jaimie,
Thanks for the visits and the life-affirming words.

You have changed my view of this coffee habit. I thought I was a freak. A former roommate tested my habit by making increasingly smaller cups of coffee for me. Even the smallest one was left 3/4 full. Well, I guess I'm ok.

Hi - When I don't finish my morning coffee, I put it in the fridge for when I get home from the office, then drink it ice cold. In this heat, it's a treat. It helps that it's decaf, so I can drink it late in the day and not worry about being kept up at night.
