I love breakfast in bed.
|Lizzard Loves....breakfast in bed|
I hear the critics out there lamenting crumbs in bed, potential for spills, and the general sense that its going to make a mess (which means a lot more work in the long run if you're changing sheets, getting coffee stains out of pajamas, etc.). I hear the critics and I have breakfast in bed with blissful reckless abandon!
Chris & I tend to lead pretty active lives. Our alarm goes off at 5am on the typical Monday-Friday. It can be earlier to accommodate my bread baking schedule, or as late at 6am if we are willing to rush and still make it to work on time. Our early morning routine can make it difficult to sleep in on the weekends, which is usually absolutely fine by me. I love mornings (see this post if you want to read more on why!) so waking up at 6am on a Saturday or Sunday is generally great.
But there is a small part of me that relishes slow moving lazy weekend mornings. Our lives are jam packed with obligations (both fun & not so fun) during the work week. We move pretty fast for long, full days. The indulgence of waking up, brewing coffee, warming some homemade scones, and climbing back into my still warm bed to read a book, or the Sunday Tribune, or just talk is almost overwhelming it is so good.
I love the chances I have to slow down and just be.
Breakfast is bed is one of the times I am lucky to do just that.
For the record, I also love blue pottery mugs. I have started collecting them both at home and when I travel. They make me happy for no good reason.
The scones are Cheddar Chive & Dark Chocolate Dried Cherry;
they are easy riffs on this recipe I shared awhile back. If you want exact measurements or details on how to make these varieties- let me know in the comments!
I hope you have a chance this coming weekend (or week!) to slow down and enjoy some breakfast in bed. I know I am looking forward to it.
