Every night before I go to bed, there are a few kitchen "chores" to take care of so the next morning begins smoothly..:)
I set the table with fresh napkins and wipe the place mats...my husband is the first one up and really appreciates this.
I turn on the dishwasher and clean / wipe down the sink... thank you, Fly Lady. :)
I fill the coffee pot with water and a tea bag (for brewing hot tea)...
