Spring Morning Rituals
The photo prompt this morning from Picture Spring at Big Picture Scrapbooking was related to morning rituals. I'm not much of a ritual person in the morning. Most mornings start something like...alarm...snooze button...alarm...snooze button...alarm... ... you get the idea. Once I do get up, Lindsay has to go outside, then Dippy and Fluffy and I have a little conversation while all the breakfast dishes are prepared, Lindsay comes back inside and everyone eats. Whether or not I get breakfast or not varies indirectly with the number of times I hit the snooze button.
However, now that we've had two days of warm weather our breakfast ritual has to be expanded to include allergy pills - but not for me - for my pooch. Lindsay has terrible allergies. We've had one day of warm weather and she's snuffling and sneezing like crazy. So, tomorrow morning we start our Benadryl ritual with breakfast. I can't believe that last fall I was wishing for the first freeze so she wouldn't have to deal with the allergies and could get off the allergy meds again. I won't be wishing for a first freeze again this fall I don't think - I had no idea I was going to get so much freeze when I was wishing for it. We'll just keep up our Benadryl ritual as long as needed.
What are your morning rituals?
