And So It Begins!
You may notice my constant companion standing nearby…sadly almost empty! “That is okay…
reinforcements are standing ready for
battle the day ahead! At least that is what the cup may think…I had a major coughing episode early this morning and needed some special help from my constant companion. I have been fighting this ridiculous itchy throat and cough for almost a week now…and that is long enough! I think it is time to try another route of medication. This feeling of drowning is not working for me! At least I am keeping hydrated! So it is the least I can do to brew about another 8oz and combine with the leftovers! “Can’t let it go to waste…right?”
I am quite wiped from my late night and issues from coughing. I was up past my bedtime due to the BCS National Championship. It was a bit emotional as I watched my favorite-all-time-prick-my-finger-and-I-bleed-Orange-and-Blue Auburn Tigers almost defeat the number one team in the National Championship. They said we couldn’t make it to the championship and…WE DID! It was a great game…nail biting and heart-wrenching! Time to move on to the next item…the college football season is over and our focus now turns to our favorite NFL team from my hubby’s home state and guess what…They are in the number one seed for the division!
I am chilled, as I sit here at the kitchen table, feeling the cold penetrating the window panes. It is about 5 degrees this morning and there is a breeze! “Yay!” I have watched the sunrise, with all it’s glory, quietly brighten the morning sky. The golden shimmer has finally spread across the surrounding browning landscape. The deceivingly warm glow from the rising sun has captured the tooth-pick trees in my backyard.
“I wish I was under my blanket! My luck I would get warm and cozy and start coughing.” I have had enough of that so no blanket time! I think I will head upstairs and pull everything out of my linen closet. There are sheets in that abyss that have no bed to fit and towels that should have been left at camp when the boys came home after a week of use! (Lol…I just pictured wet, icky towels being hidden away in the back of the closet, by my sons, and oozing all over like an infection!) Fortunately that is not the case…just over stacking of badly folded and mixed up towels and sheets!
I am still sitting here…
procrastinating spending time with you! Although you are more fun to talk to I really need to go! My “constant companion” is ready to go and I must follow suit!
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
“Welcome To My Table!”
I start my quiet morning with my beautiful anniversary roses displayed in a special vase, given to me by my hubby, centered on my kitchen table. “Hubby and I celebrated 27 years of marriage Tuesday…” Two coffee cups sit at my place…one with espresso and one with Special K with berries. There is room at the table for guests…and I have more Special K and of course espresso and coffee! Any takers?
With my son healing, finally, I can escape the four walls of my home today. I think I will get my nails done. Timing is everything…I broke two yesterday and have been chipping and picking at them all night.
Precious Princess climbed off her spot on the couch to lay at my feet. Her heavy breathing will soon become deeply relaxed snoring. “I sure would like to have that ability…falling asleep that fast, anytime…anywhere!”
A simple morning filled with typical routines:
Wow!…it is a light day!
My semi-invalid son is awake and moving around upstairs which translates into…I can get out earlier today than originally thought. Maybe I can find some inspiration, while out and about, for dinner. I have to confess that I have hit a brick wall this past week when it came to planning dinner. My family have enjoyed my dinners….but I saw them as plain and lacking creativity.
I hope you can find time to enjoy a little quiet today. Enjoy things given with love…flowers, sunshine, family and friends. And from my kitchen table…Have a great day!
