Every morning in Amsterdam I wake to this view.
I have a lovely, enormous window right next to my bed that swings wide open and provides the perfect place to sit and write, read or dream.
It overlooks a courtyard that of late has been the scene for ping-pong tournaments for the downstairs neighbors. They are very serious about their game, switching places for each serve like pro tennis players, and we’ve had grand fun watching the spectacle.
I love mornings here.
Cool breezes come in through open windows and I hear the city wake up as neighbors creak open their own windows, construction guys start up their equipment, and bikes come rattling down the bricked and cobbled streets.
We’ve been having the most splendid breakfasts – strong coffee with the thickest, must scrumptious foam I’ve ever seen, and Holly’s (sis-in-law’s sis) fantastic breakfast sandwiches made with dark grainy bread, crispy bacon, fresh eggs, and strong cheese she brought over from Scotland.
Yep, I’m feeling thoroughly spoiled. 🙂
What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast on lazy, sunny mornings?
