Peach State says: Now That’s How To Start A Day!

It is your typical morning…Now That’s How To Start A Day!
Up before the Butt crack of dawn making breakfast for my hubby and youngest child while I swivel and pirouette, like a graceful ballerina, between the espresso maker and microwave. Tasks accomplished and back upstairs to enjoy my body warming-oversized-overly caffeinated-life sustaining “Calf-Pow”. (Sorry I am a tad-bit of a NCIS fan!) The world is as right as it can be this early in the day. My hubby even squeezed in a lovely behavior lecture from his series “How To Behave At School” which was not accepted by our 6th grade multitasker. “Well I will not let that ruin my morning!” I head down the stairs to the kitchen and begin my next series of task as my lethargic and oh so put upon son began his final preparations. I was in the middle of cleaning out the dishwasher (while my youngest sat on the couch saying “I was going to do that!”) when my phone buzzed. I paused and took a well deserved break…hehe…and saw that a dear friend was thing about me this morning. To be truthful…her hubby was thinking about me too! “Sorry…I had to chuckle out loud after typing that…” This is what my friend said:

Hubby said that I should send this to you…I was already in the process! LOL

This picture is what they were talking about:

I have to admit…I laughed so loudly that I scared my youngest and made him jump.
What lovely friends I have that they would support my lifestyle choices and even offer suggestions on my preparation of my addiction. “Hi…my name is Peach State and I am a Coffeeholic!”
The good thing is the fact that this husband and wife are Coffeeholics too!
Now That’s How To Start A Morning! Family, morning lectures to children, good friends, strong Coffee and Facebook. “Wow! I have finally become one of those people who use Facebook to have conversations instead of picking up the phone.” In my defense…it was only 7am and I typically do not start talking in the phone until after my hubby leaves for work. I love getting coffee pics from my friends…oh and cheeseburger pics (you know who you are) from those close to me.

It sure makes the day brighter! A little ray of sunshine letting me know I am being thought about…Now That’s How To Start A Morning!

Have a great day!

Peach State says: It’s Saturday; Good Morning!


I am sitting in my chair, with my feet up, as words rush through my head. The sun has not yet started it’s daily trek and the birds are silent. The forecast calls for rain and possible thunderstorms today…maybe that is why it is still so dark. “It’s Saturday; Good Morning!”

Coffee has been made and delivered to my husband’s office along with his standard bowl of oatmeal. I sip on my cup, my trusted morning companion, and enjoy the warmth as I set my cup back down. Today will be a lazy day…we need those days from time to time. The laundry is done except for two loads and the house is presentable in standards.

This has been a difficult week and this next week my youngest has Winter Break from school. I long for something different…nope…just the same old thing. Daily chores are my life! I do
have the occasional break with church activities and that is needed. “I would hate to get lost in the fog of the same old thing! “It’s Saturday; Good Morning!”

I guess I should be dancing around like Snoopy. “I get to stay home…I have nothing to do!” I know I should… I have come to realize that I am sort of trapped. I have transportation to church…and that is it! I have no car to just jump into and go! I can’t go walking because my youngest can’t keep up. I would not even make it to the stop sign before he complained about being tired or asking how long we would be walking. My friends all go places with family and friends and I am here. I miss the days when I could drive to Birmingham for the weekend or just go shopping. I know some of this is financial…and the fact that I do not have a car anymore…right financial. 3 cars in the family and not one available for me except on Sunday’s. Sometimes I really do just want to scream! But I will sip on my coffee. “I do not want to wake up my youngest!”

A pinkish burnt-orange glow is coming through the trees…the birds are beginning to sing. I will resume my day with a smile on my face. Content and safe in my little corner of the world. After all I have my coffee and “It’s Saturday; Good Morning!” Come by if you want…I can make more coffee!
