I got a full night's sleep and am still the only one awake. Bradley is sleeping somewhat upright on the couch, because he's still sick and sleeping upright helps him breathe. Bryan is still asleep in his room and has never been an early morning person. Emily also is enjoying the morning stillness.
Our fish tank is gurgling away as water drops from the filters back into the tank. ( I've never heard the fish make a single sound, ever!) The birds in our mango tree are all chirping, cooing and such and it can get quite noisy (in a pleasant way though) in the mornings. The sun is just beginning to warm our roof, so as it expands there's the regular pop of the wood beams expanding. That sound used to scare me as a kid.
I'm sitting here in the corner, in my favorite spot, on my lazy-boy recliner and every now and then the well worn leather creaks to my movements. I've finally got the chair warmed up to my body temperature and it feels cozy and comforting.
Ha! One of our pet rats (we have 2) just started snoring little rat snores! It's so cute! I always laugh at the way they sleep, sometimes curled up in a ball with their forehead on the floor between their legs. The cage is near my chair so the air is filled with the smell of their redwood/cedar chips. Nice and clean smelling because Bryan cleaned their cage yesterday.
The house is in our typical lived-in clutter state. Family pictures on the wall, lots of light houses about (we were collecting them at one point)...
(Bradley woke up)
Well Bradley has just woken up and his first question out of the blue was "You know E.T., The Extra Terrestrial? Do you know what the inner planets are called? (answer: Terrestrial)" He then went on to describe the most Earth-like of the planets (Mars) and how if we ever have to leave Earth we'll probably go there. Good to know.
Thus ends my morning reverie. The troops are stirring and will soon be hungry. Sunday has started. Have a great day!
Peace Love and Relaxing Sundays,
