Wake up came early for us this morning.
I set my alarm every day , even on the weekends for six am. I am a structured schedule kind of person and without it I am completely all over the map. This morning however my stomach was my alarm and it went off at four thirty am. I thought maybe I'd have some water and go back to sleep but my brain had other ideas. My husband had gotten up a few minutes earlier for a bathroom run and I guess he decided he would stay up as well because he went into the den and popped on the computer. I laid in bed with some of the dogs until about five thirty am watching the news but not really watching the news. I just like to see what the weather will be for the day.
I usually begin to pray the moment my eyes open in the morning, watch the weather for the day, scroll through my social media for a bit, play a game or two of bingo and then get up and make the coffee and do my morning stuff.
Mr went outside by six thirty am to begin working on the generator shelter house again which is almost completed. While he was doing that I went outside and looked at the garden, checked all the vegetable plants and seeing if they needed water. After that I came in made our bed and cleaned up the bedroom. Fed the four legged kids breakfast, made our coffee, washed the dishes and then decided to make some hard boiled eggs for the dogs to put on their food and some for egg salad for my Mr. Then I moved onto the our small guest bathroom and washed the walls.
A little while later I sat down at the dining room table and started to crumble the dried herbs that I had picked from the garden last week. I have a dehydrator but this time I wanted to try just letting them dry on some parchment paper. The basil and lemon thyme did well. The rosemary, not so much. That must be dried either in the dehydrator or the sun. While doing this I watched a very informative video on Berkey Water Filters. They are expensive but I think I'd like to get one.
It's now after ten am and I'm getting tired so I think I will finish this blog post, wash up the dishes from the eggs and Mr's breakfast and then sit down and visit some of you all on your blogs. I think it's going to be an early nap day for me.
