Morning time is my favorite time of the day. Yes, it’s full of promise, fresh start, good intentions and all that jazz, but it’s truly the QUIET TIME of the day for me. Which is why it’s worth it to me to get up a good hour (or more) before my offspring. I want my coffee in peace. I want to read the daily Readings. I want to think and process through the day or yesterday. I pray in peace. There is no speaking (something Hubby has finally realized!). And at some point, when Hubby has moved on to getting ready for the day or has left for work our little cat settles for Lap#2 (me). His first choice is Daddy. A fact that perplexes and infuriates our daughters to no end. Either way, when it’s MY turn for some kitty cuddles, he’s all up in my business, paws on keyboard, nose on coffee mug, head butting my petting hand. It’s his quiet time, too.
And…..since today is July 4th and we will be celebrating America’s birthday with my sister and her family in town for the night, I am enjoying the only QUIET I’ll see all day 😉 It will be beach in the morning and then pool and BBQ in the afternoon and a certainty of fireworks tonight which will be going off despite the fact that I will be getting up in the morning to work. It’s all good though! There’s something to be said for having a day off mid-week!
