I have no shades on my windows, so I usually wake up with sunrise, which has been around 5 a.m. I generally read The New York Times right away. I have my iPad right next to my bed and I do the mini-crossword puzzle—if I haven’t done it before I go to bed, because the new one is posted around midnight. It’s sort of a habit I have. Then I get up and I take my shower. Then I go back and I read The New York Times, and I might open the doors to let the cats out.
