Morning Is Broken
Cleaned out the previous days spent grounds.
Positioned the pot in its proper place.
Filled the tank with filtered water.
Retrieved the grinder from cupboard. Filled it with fresh beans. Plugged it in to the wall receptacle. Pushed the top down to activate the blades and...
Tried a different plug in. Still nothing.
Emptied the beans out. Made sure the piece that engages the motor was clean and functional. Walked to the other side of the kitchen to try a different outlet.
A brief whirr of hope and then nothing. No grinder. No ground beans. No coffee. Sigh.
Stopped at a coffee shop on the way to work. Stood in line, ordered my beverage of choice, paid for it, and walked out to my car.
Climbed in behind the wheel. While trying to set coffee in cup holder somehow managed to spill a quarter of it all over center consol, car seat, and my pants. Sigh.
The day can only can better from here on out. Right?
