This Day Is History

My wife rises a little later than I do,
and I know she's awake because the ancient water meter under my floor goes tick tick tick. She comes five minutes later with two cups of coffee for us to share in my snug little office, and we wait for the sound of the little one's feet hitting the floor above us. Today she was late, and came with pumpkin muffins, too, warm from the oven. I could do this every day forever and ever. -- Sippican Cottage: Simple Pleasures

Your Say

All it takes is a little effort, a half step, and the sense of welcome and warmth and affection overwhelm all else. Human nature includes more than self-preservation and the urge to protect, and coffee and a warm muffin are two ingredients that feed that nature.

You are so right. Our favorite repeated activity is sitting down together as a family. All food is comfort food.

Pumpkin muffins certainly make the season's temp changes more bearable.
