Morning Rituals


I don’t have morning rituals, really. When I go to work, the morning is built around sleeping as much as I can and then rushing out the door to catch the bus–which is always behind schedule when I get to the stop early and rather early when I am running late.  That is how the universe works.

On days when I am not working, breakfast can either be leisurely or hectic depending on so many things. Do I have somewhere to go?  Do I feel like doing anything?  Is it snowing or did it snow and now I have to shovel the driveway?  Have I got anything on the PVR that I want to watch?  Is there news worth reading in the newspaper?  Do I feel like investing the time in the crossword or the sudoku–because the jumble is a breeze?

This Saturday morning I took the time to make some biscuits, coffee, and watch my current favourite TV program A Million Little Things. It was a nice way to spend my morning.  It was slightly indulgent, but it helped start the day off on the right foot.  That can’t be a bad thing.

I am writing this a little earlier than normal–and scheduling it to post tomorrow morning–so if another thing turns out to be Today’s Perfect Moment, I will probably have to have a two post day.

What would be a Perfect Morning for you?

  1. Coffee and writing until I run out of words. 🙂

    Well biscuits would certainly be in the picture of a perfect morning for me. Having had enough sleep is the number one thing though, and I have terrible bouts of insomnia so that’s rare. Having had a good or at least an amusing dream really puts me in a good mood and if my family is in a good mood too… that would be the perfect morning. 😀

    Mmmm biscuits AND GRAVY for me, please!

    My perfect morning would be to go OUT for breakfast. Don’t really care where. I love breakfasty foods but I hate cooking them.

  4. A night’s sleep without waking up every two hours and my cat allowing me to sleep beyond 6:00am without first attempting to wake me – after finally falling asleep yet again – before 5:00. I do seem to have some rituals beyond feeding Musa. Turn the radio on to CBC (I use my iPad) make coffee, breakfast – yogurt, fruit, sometimes hemp hearts – catch up with online nonsense. Ok, perhaps not all is nonsense, after all, it includes your posts!
