It’s still dark outside my window, the house is quiet and it’s the perfect time to enjoy a cup of coffee. What would you like? This week I’ve been getting up very early every day, between 4am and 4.30am. My body does not acknowledge that it is Saturday today, I woke up “before the alarm” as usual. I do enjoy the quiet solitude of early mornings. Most days I could of slept an hour longer, if I rushed the morning, but I need to sit down and meditate before the day begin, have breakfast at home (even though I can eat later with the kids at school most days,) stretch my body, and help my daughter get ready for the day in peace. That soft, quiet start makes all the difference. When all those details that makes a perfect morning cooperates, the day feels like a dance. Do you have any morning routines that you don’t want to live without?
It’s been a good week. I did spend some time this week taking preventive tests at the hospital. I feel great, and hope to stay that way for a long time!
The weather have been pleasant, around 25 F and we’ve seen some sun. There is no snow on the ground, but since we’ve had a little bit of a cold they’ve been able to prepare our towns ski-slope with artificial snow, that you can see in the distance in this picture I posted on Instagram Friday morning.
My daughter tried skiing for the first time in her life yesterday. Her conclusion is that she is going to stick with snowboarding. LOL.
Of course it wouldn’t be right to forget about Valentine’s Day yesterday. I’ve been making beautiful Valentine’s Day cards with the children at work for a couple days. I’m amazed by their imagination and creativity. I showed them an idea of how to make a pop-up heart shaped card on Thursday, and many of them made variations on that. One boy made a fabulous 5-layered heart card in different colours, it was amazing. My daughter made me a beautiful card, that I will save among the special treasures she’s given me throughout the years. I gave my daughter a wrapped package with some new clothes, candy, and a glittery card before going to school yesterday.
Would you like a refill on your coffee? How are you doing? Do you have any special plans for the weekend? I’m thinking about taking my daughter for a picnic at a lake some time this weekend. I’ve seen a hiking trail, and some beautiful picnic spots driving by, but we’ve actually never explored the area. I’m hoping to see some of it this weekend. Tell me my friend, what makes your world spin?
