** Cafetera. Opps-- still drinking my coffee!

What's Your Morning Coffee Ritual? And What Do You Want to Learn About Coffee?

I love my french press and my cafeteria! I most often use the FP, make a big batch in the morning and when I come home, make myself a cup of iced coffee with the leftovers. Its great because you can enjoy your coffee in every stage and its space efficient.

The cafeteria is for my favorite drink--cafe con leche. Grab some bustle from the supermarket and its so easy to make!

I love coffee, so it would definitely be exciting to learn more! I know we have somewhat touched on it, but I would like to see an article about "coffee all over the world" or something to that effect. AT did an article similar on breakfast so this one would follow suit perfectly.

I will ( usually) pull out the clothes I am going to wear, fix the coffee, prepare much lunch etc.- as much as I can do- Sunday night. It makes my Monday morning a lot less intimidating and it also encourages me to spend a few minutes reading the news, sipping my coffee and thinking up a game plan for the day. When my monday morning goes well, the rest is the week is more likely to follow suit.

For those of you who want to work out, i recommend Pilates off of youtube or ten-15 minutes of yoga in the mornings Its a great way to get the blood flowing and its a start if you would like to make working out a permanent fixture in your mornings. You'll feel great, promise!

5 Proven Strategies For a Happy Monday

I agree- staying at a house that is too hot is absolutely maddening!!
Not everyone has the means with which to offer fancy down comforters and an array of bedding, but if you do, it sure is nice!!
You should care about the comfort of your guest, unless you really want them out- ask questions and let them know where the thermostat etc is OR let them know before hand that your house is freezing/sweltering.

My biggest pet peeve is the animals. I'm not asking you to board them, just clean the house a little. Why have guests over to a dirty house? If my allergies don't get along with your house after that, I've learned my lesson.

As a college student, my "weekends" can sometimes really just be days crammed with studying, working or attending some kind of seminar. On the days I do have to myself, I always cook an elaborate sit down meal and I read in my room using the natural light- something I hardly ever use since I leave every morning at dark and come back around 10pm. These days I also ditch my phone for hours, enjoying my personal time- its lovely.
