~ Breakfast Cookies ~
I remember when I was sixteen and had just started baking as a hobby, I came home from school on a rainy summer day and decided to make orange flavored muffins with blueberries as an after-school treat while listening to the sound of the roaring thunder and pouring rain.
Earlier this summer when I was relaxing at home, there was a similar thunderstorm which put me in the mood to bake something. I knew that my mom was going to be home from work soon and thought it would be a pleasant surprise for her to have freshly baked sweet treats on the kitchen table to enjoy with her cup of tea.
Now that the semester’s progressing, each week is getting busier and my to-do lists are longer than ever. I’ve realized that I am the most productive in the morning and I’ve subconsciously established a daily routine of waking up early, getting breakfast followed by a cup of coffee, and going to the library until it’s time for my first class.
One of the things I look forward to the most during days filled with classes, homework, appointments, and clubs is having one or two (sometimes more…) cups of coffee. I don’t really drink coffee just to stay awake (I could actually drink coffee right before bed and still fall asleep afterwards) but it just motivates me whenever I’m super stressed.
At the beginning of last week, especially on Tuesday, it was freezing outside and I tried to avoid being outdoors as much as possible because I was just starting to recover from a cold and refused to get sick yet again. After I came back from my sociology class, I went back to my dorm and decided to stay in and bake something.
