I love to get up super early, Ollie on the other hand loves to sleep in. Our different preferences have established a routine that I totally adore. I get up, wash up and get dressed, make a cup of tea, tidy up a little, then sit down to answer emails and see what everyone's up to. After that, if Ollie's still snoozing I get to work on whatever my first project of the day is.
Around the time Ollie begins to stir, a little morning fatigue has usually set in for me. But when he jumps out of bed, happily ready to start his day, I find his enthusiasm totally contagious! As we head outside he sniffs about, exploring the little patch of woods next to the house (always making sure to check the ground hog hole) and a smile comes to my face.
I love how ernest he is about exploring the same patches of grass and woods every day. I pick some flowers, maybe hang some laundry, he barks at runners passing by and maybe some crows in the yard then we head inside.
After a little breakfast and a game of catch he settles back in for a long morning nap, and I get back to work - with a fresh batch of energy. I love him so, and our little morning routine! Do you have a favorite morning routine, I'd love to hear yours!
'Till soon! S
