I love retirement. After getting up before six more years than I care to remember, these days my first alarm goes off around eight. Belle stands outside the door announcing it's time for her breakfast. I swear she's had lessons on how to throw her voice. I mentally hit the snooze button. About a half hour later, Penny (the dog) informs me by scratching at the door that she really, really needs to go out. This one I pay more attention to. I drag myself out of bed, do about five minutes of yoga/meditation then the dog, four cats and I go trooping outside. After we've meandered through the garden a few times it's time for breakfast. Their breakfast. Then and only then am I allowed to grab my coffee, settle on the sofa and watch CNN and/or MSNBC. If current affairs are too much to deal with I switch over to Murder She Wrote. There's nothing like a spot of murder to take one's mind off world events.
The HH and the baby boy went to Atlanta last week to catch a Cubs' game and the HH brought me back this mug. Given my routine I thought it the perfect gift:)
What about you? How do you spend your mornings?
