Mornings like this…

October mornings are cooler by nature. Crisp. The sun takes its time rising.

The dogs and the girl are cuddling on the couch, sleeping.

The house is quiet except for the ticking of the coo coo clock.

And the occasional parakeet chirping.

While sipping my Scottish breakfast tea, I’m grateful for the calm this morning.

(Yes, I know this is a bit hokey for me. Maybe it has something to do with the cold medicine I’m taking.)


  1. I hear you on October mornings. I was just thinking on Friday morning how we have to turn more lights on while getting ready for work now that the days are getting shorter.

  2. This is my favorite time of year. I know spring is tecnhincally this season only in reverse, but I've never felt at ease in the spring. If that makes sense.
