My goodness ! Temperatures here in South Carolina dropped like a rock last night! We woke up to 39 f this morning with a wind chill of 36 !..... Of course next week we will be back in the mid 70's.. Yup, it's yo-yo weather here in South Carolina. It just can't seem to make up it's mind on what it wants to do. It won't figure itself out until probably towards the end of December. We wear cold weather clothes in the morning and warm weather clothes in the afternoon until the sun goes down. Doesn't it drive me nuts? You bet it does.
If you read my post yesterday which is located here then you know I was in desperate need of slowing down physically, emotionally and spiritually. Well, that's exactly what I did this morning. The photo above is of the fire I built in the fireplace this morning. The first of the season.
I woke up about four forty five this morning (thank you hot flashes and bladder) and couldn't go back to sleep. I tossed and turned until about six o clock and decided although still tired to get up and take advantage of some extremely rare morning quiet time. I put on my robe, made some coffee, some scrambled eggs, started the fire, grabbed my bible and book light and went and sat with my husband and all the dogs by the fire. Sipping my coffee and soaking in the Word of God and the beauty and warmth of the fire. Shockingly the dogs were all very quiet as well.
Mornings like these in my house are very, very rare so when I see there is even the slightest chance it could happen I jump on it.
I'm also not cooking tonight as I have some left over spinach and cheese ravioli's in the refrigerator for my husband to have for dinner so I thought I would take the time to go down and see Linda tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend. Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour on Sunday before bed that is of course, unless you live in Arizona!
