Morning is my favorite time of day! I'm an early riser and I love having a quiet house to myself for awhile. I'm one of those super obnoxious people who go around humming and singing in the morning. My poor family....
I have a morning routine that very rarely alters and here it is:
I make a cup of coffee (thank you Kurig for being so fast) and step into my office.
That is what Rich calls my table and my spot on the green couch in the
Gold Living Room. I took over the living room 3 houses ago for morning
time. It is a pretty room and often under used - so I use it for me
I take my coffee (and usually coco) and sit. My first task is to make an entry in my Five Year Journal. It is awesome. There are only a few lines to fill in and now that I'm on Year 3, it is fun to read back.
The second thing I do is a little spiritual reading of some sort. I've read the Bible 3 times by doing it one day at a time. This year I'm working on "The Wisdom of the Tao" and a book my friend Mary B gave me; "Help, Thanks, Wow - The Three Essential Prayers".
Then I either do a little more reading, or I write a note to someone. I often listen to my book and a do a little applique' and have a second cup of coffee. Sometimes I work on my laptop, but I'm trying not to get into that habit.
Here are two more new books that I got from Mary for Christmas this year: "Making Time", and "How to Live on 24 Hours a Day". I'm sensing a theme here.
At 7 am I can almost always be found watching Good Morning America. They don't know it, but there is a suburban NJ woman helping them co-anchor the show. I weigh in on nearly every topic, especially the legal issues.
Okay, so maybe that wasn't exactly fun, but it wasn't quilting related either. You know what is fun? PUPPIES!
Not into the Super Bowl? Animal Planet hosts the Puppy Bowl click here to see some footage. It is so cute! I can't stand it.
Have a Fun Weekend!
