The Best Part of Waking Up...

...is Folgers in my cup.














J asked me if I would prefer to have it fed into my body intravenously. I hadn't realized that was an option...

Props to those of you that regularly get up at the (yes, I dare say this! I firmly believe God did NOT create me to be up at this hour!) UNGODLY hour of 4 a.m.!!! I have only been doing this for a
short time and first thing in the morning, I am not OK with it. But, for the love of my husband, I will get up with him at 4 a.m.!!! so he is not alone in his exhaustion. It does make it very easy to want to crawl in bed at 8 p.m. But, I did the math... (this was not pretty...) If we are SLEEPING by eight o'clock, we get the NECESSARY (read: VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY important to my well being!!! If I don't get enough sleep, I am NOT a nice person!) eight hours of sleep. *sigh* I'm tired. And it took me two hours to get my infiltration of much needed energy. BUT, I got it, and today will be a GOOD day. Maybe we will do bread later!! You'll have to come back and see...











By the way, is that song going through your head now? You're welcome! :)

INSTANT HUMAN! Just add coffee!! (that's the poster on the wall in my cube at work....)
and they make IV's now??? I want one!!! there is FAR too much blood in my caffeine stream!!!

Although, I must say I'm getting used to getting up early...my alarm goes off at 5:30...this ensures that my time with God happens uninterupted...which makes a huge impact on my day...
love ya sweets! enjoy your coffee and muffin!

And, please note, Mr. Mira, I said "props to those of you who do this" and, notice, the "those of you" is you. Props little bro :) But I'm not whining... I got to sleep in today. *lol*

the Guthrie's said...

that's what you get for skimming, dear hubby of mine.

and yeah, I was singing the song.

though I'm currently into cappuccinos made with my very own authentic italian stovetop espresso maker as opposed to american coffee.

and you totally stole my picture idea, goober.
