It’s a beautiful morning here in the south, after a dreary rainy day yesterday.
This morning Jason had to get up and out earlier than usual. On a morning as early as it is, with kids still snug in bed, I was tempted to return to bed under my warm quilt. Instead, I decided I wanted to do a rare thing (for me) and watch the sun rise.
I really must get in the habit of rising this early every morning. With homeschooling and a hubby that doesn’t have to normally get up that early, it really is a rare thing since I don't have to. But, what a peaceful and cozy morning it has been. (Kids are still sleeping….I really must wake them). But when I wake a certain 3 year old boy, peaceful is no longer a word in our vocabulary. (Actually, I'm not sure the words boy and peaceful are words that could be used in the same sentence. But I wouldn't want it any other way). :)
One of the first things I did after making Jason’s coffee and pouring my morning diet dew, was to plug in my tart warmer. Oh the aroma in my house this morning…….spiced pumpkin pie.
And because I love the cozy glow of lamplight, I turned on all my lamps.
Okay, I really like this early morning thing. It’s so serene. I wonder if it is possible to make a consistent early bird of a night owl?
And today is a much anticipated day because our friend, Karen, is coming over to give Joy her first sewing lesson!
Time to wake the kids! Let the fun begin! :)
