I am a creature of enormous habit. If I have an early start to my day for whatever reason, I'll make it a bit earlier. I need (need) two cups of coffee to kick start my day and I like five or ten minutes to myself, catching up on my blog reader.
Currently, the weather is set fair in dear old England and I'm enjoying lots of deep sleep and very early mornings. Mr D is an early riser and in the summer weather, I've adopted the habit. I like the early morning cool and after the coffee, I can get about and do chores before resenting having to stay indoors. I think I am very typically English in this sense...I have a nagging guilt if I don't 'make the most of the good weather' by being outside. And so, I've another new habit... I'm carting stuff outside to work on, or even more extraordinarily, I'm doing real outside chores. The porch is next, needs sanding and re-coating...gah, the work habit thing is not what I intended. To start today, I have a birthday card to make (for today!) and so I've cleared my desk, set down my second coffee and any minute now, will stop procrastinating and get to it.
This revelatory post is coming to you via Elizabeth's T is for Tuesday gathering. I love the idea of relating a post to whatever cup or mug is currently in use at my side - probably the most universal of habits!
