I spent some time today tidying up a bit – around the apartment, and particularly around my workspace. Then I brewed some nice-smelling gingerbread coffee – and I sat down with the first cup and read a chapter of a book I’m enjoying. (Just one cup + one chapter. Fifteen minutes or so. Twenty, max.)
