Coffee and Paper, morning routine
 
Although many of my routines go by the way side in the summer (like blogging!) I do maintain my morning one.  I'm not a morning person, at least socially.  Easing into the day with a cup of coffee and the morning paper is the way I rise.
 
First I read the front page section.  That usually gets my blood moving, right?!  Then I move the Sports and Business sections to the discard pile with maybe a peak at the headlines on the business pages.
 
Then comes my favorite section: Living with the comics in color every day, advice columns, and the crosswords.  Ours not only has their own, but they also have the NY Times one.  So far I'm not so good on the NYT's one except maybe Monday and Tuesday. 
I figure doing crosswords is a good way to get the brain going first thing in the morning, but I always find it interesting that on those I can't finish that if I wait til I have a real breakfast I almost always can finish it.  Sort of proof that there is such a thing as brain food I guess.
