Veeder: Take time to sip from a real cup and chat


During the first few months of our lives back at the ranch, my favorite thing about having no set plans was that I could drink my coffee out of a real cup in the morning.

And when I say real cup, I mean one without a lid, one not made for moving or driving or rushing out the door. Instead, I grabbed a ceramic coffee cup with a handle, one that sits on the table and lets the steam reel off the top as I read or write or watch the news scroll on my TV in the morning.
