Gratitude - Day 41

It occurred to me today that I've fallen into a morning routine.

I walk downstairs, and open the blinds on the windows in the living room.  Then I turn on the gas fireplace.  Then I turn on the lamps. Then I go to the kitchen and turn on the under-counter lights.

Next, I make a cup of coffee, turn on some soft music, and settle in on the couch with my laptop to indulge in my morning blog reading and Facebook catching up.

The routine is comfortable.  I am waking up the house while I wake up myself.  It's like a ritual, and it brings me a sense of peace and calm.

I'm grateful today for the blessing of a morning ritual that makes me happy and starts my day off well.

  1. Sounds like a good routine. Is your hubby retired? I find my day revolves around what mine is doing, many days.

    1. No, he's not retired, so I'm home alone most days. Pretty much do what I want, which is a real luxury!
