I am taking a different path this week and using this space to join Michelle’s photo challenge.

The prompt today is warmth. As soon as I saw that word I knew my photo would be hands wrapped around my morning cuppa. I start the day with a cup of hot water. Today there is a slice of ginger in my cup but often it is just water. I used to rush for that first cup of coffee but when I chose to cut back on my caffeine intake, I began this ritual. I pour my cup of water and take time to read or write. I sit on the couch, wrapped in a quilt, my hands wrapped around my cup, drinking in the warmth before I begin sipping. I try to let the quiet house and warm water ease me into the morning and the day.

Are you joining this challenge?

  1. Lovely peek into the start of your day! I am also joining this challenge and hoping to view things through my lens in a different way!

  2. How nice. My Dad was fond of drinking warm/hot water. Sometimes I do (great idea for the first cup of the day!!) and my son does as well. Have a wonderful week.

  3. I’m in . . . I, too, find a plain, old cup of hot water to be soothing. Sometimes with a lemon; sometimes not. But I always start my day with coffee. 🙂

  4. so many of us begin our days with hands wrapped around a mug … true warmth and comfort! (of course, mine has coffee in it … but later in the day, I might choose water)

  5. It’s such a lovely way to begin the day, isn’t it? Sometimes mine is water or water with lemon, sometimes it’s tea or coffee. But always…that warmth, that cupping of the hands. Yes, I totally understand (and appreciate) this warm easing into the day…
