Saturday Morning Coffee

It’s strange to be getting up this early on a Saturday and not go running. Continue reading “Saturday Morning Coffee”

Breakfast with Boethius (Book 5)

Coffee and bacon and Boethius, with a napping kitty on my lap. Time for some morning philosophy! Today, we’re finishing Book 5 of Consolation of PhilosophyContinue reading “Breakfast with Boethius (Book 5)”

Breakfast with Boethius (Book 3)

Once again Boethius has joined us for breakfast. Coffee, a doughnut and/or bagel with cream cheese, and philosophy – for what more could one ask? Well, answers to life’s big questions, for a start . . .  Continue reading “Breakfast with Boethius (Book 3)”

Breakfast with Boethius (Book 2)

Welcome back! It’s day two of reading Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy while we enjoy a morning coffee. Here’s what stuck with me from Book 2 Continue reading “Breakfast with Boethius (Book 2)”

Breakfast with Boethius (Book 1)

This summer I’m reading through Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy. I don’t quite known why I put it off for so long; I’m enjoying it immensely and finding it quite accessible with the annotated version I bought. I thought I’d share with you a few choice lines from each of the five “books” in the work.

I really don’t like shaving.

Clothes Maketh the Man

Last Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were laundry days.

Now I have “normal” clothes; no more sweatpants and sweatshirts all day.

However, I did receive some nice shirts and a sweater for Christmas; so, there’s that.

Remember, Kids: Breakfast is the Most Important Meal of the Day

Huge “THANK YOU” to the students who gave me coffee.

Your gift kept me alive the past two weeks.

Now that I can’t just go to the kitchen whenever I want, I actually have to plan breakfasts again.

Good thing I can pick up a value-sized carton of blueberry toaster pastries on the way to work.

Let’s get this day rolling, shall we?
