Hello Beautiful Day

I woke up at 4 A.M. this morning.

I debated if I should get up and start my day.

Afterall, I could accomplish a lot in the quiet of the morning.

Instead, I decided to read so I would fall back asleep.

Sleep a few more hours, I told myself, and then “Hit it full steam ahead!”

The Best Sleep

So, I read a bit and fell back asleep.

It was the best sleep.  A small luxury.

I woke up a few minutes after 6.

Still plenty of time to “Hit it full steam ahead!”

But only after I had my coffee.

Only after I checked on my new plants on the patio.

Only after I gave Ginny* her medicine and a belly rub.

So, here I am

It’s 7:30

I am still in my pajamas.

Still drinking coffee and easing into the day.

No matter what I do…

No matter where I go…

It’s going to be a great day!


Happy day to you

No matter where you are,

No matter what the weather is,

No matter what happens,

I wish you a beautiful day!


* Ginny, my sweet Golden Doodle.

A New Life for Ginny

Ginny Ain’t Misbehavin’

  1. Had a similar morning. My wife is visiting granddaughters, so I am alone with the two pups. They woke me a 5:30 stating they wanted breakfast. Got up, fed them, opened the sliding door for them to go out,went back to bed. Fifteen minutes later I have two cold wet noses pressed against my face saying “thanks, mind if we join you?” We all slept until 7:30. It was delightful. Beautiful day, indeed!

  2. Thank you for the wishes Lori! That’s a great attitude to start a day with imho 😉
    I can relate very well to the not getting out of bed decision, even if i still feel guilty for it (sometimes! 😉 )
    Hope your day remained beautiful and you have many such more.

  3. LOL. Oh you are exhibiting symptoms of grandchild withdrawal…
    Next time you wake up early, do some stretching exercises (yoga if you practice), then take a walk in the woods in the crisp morning air. Come back refreshed and another beautiful day begins!

    1. Yes, I am sure your diagnosis is correct. I bought her a gift today for her 1st birthday in September. I did take a long walk with Ginny. I practice yoga most days but did not today. Later I went to see a play and then enjoyed an early dinner at a Sicilian trattoria. I hope your weekend is going well.

      1. Oh it has been splendid. Did a walk at the little rock gardens near us. And tomorrow’s labor day, so a public holiday. We are going to the Presidential Palace which is opened only during these public holidays.
