Every single morning I write in my journal about the day before and anything else I'm pondering about. I've been doing this daily journal writing for years and love the ritual of picking up my Lamy fountain pen and Moleskine notebook and beginning my day in the very best possible way.
I pour myself a cup of coffee into a 'current' favorite mug and sip away while writing. Sadly one of my favorite favorite mugs sprung a leak. So sad. However, that lets me shop to find new favorite mugs along the way. The sprung leak mug was over 30 years old so it served me well.
In my daily planner (not the writing journal), I write what I'd like to accomplish in that particular day. Sometimes I am really good at meeting these loose goals and sometimes I am not. I just move them onto the next day or the next week.
While sitting in darkness and silence sipping coffee, I play fetch with Holly. This particular fetch game really isn't a true fetch game. I throw a mouse toy and she runs after it. Then comes back to me without the toy. She used to bring it back half way but now that she is a mature cat she lets me do all the walking.
This fall time change has messed me up with sleeping and waking but I'm ALMOST sleeping in until 5 am. I've always been an early morning person but before five is a bit too early for me. My gram used to get up early and I'd rise as well and giggle as I sneakily sipped her coffee when I thought she wasn't looking. She always acted surprised that her coffee was disappearing and would vocally wonder what was happening. She was a fantastic grandmother playing along with her grandchildren.
My sister's sweater is nearly done with the color work!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Do you have a morning routine? Are you a morning person?
