I have no idea how we humans have got into the habit of cooking and cleaning in the morning. Morning, the mind is like a dew drop, awake and calm. Everything around is quiet. It is brimming with ideas along with that hot coffee. And everything cools down when chores take over. Cook, clean and again clean. By afternoon, the dew drop has evaporated. Even the evidence of its presence is not found anywhere. The mind shuts down.
People who love to cook do not suffer this problem.
