Pillow Thoughts & Pumpkin Creamer
Note: To find info on the Holiday Organizer, click HERE. I'm still working on link colors, etc.

The alarm goes off, I hurry to reach out and take a whack at it. Classical music or not, it still signals time to get up. Snuggling back in, I feel around for the cat, give her a morning snuggle. She's going to need it to put up with that new puppy. Then we lie there just a bit. Somedays I get right up, oversleeping is just too big a possibility. Other mornings, five minutes of pillow thoughts is a good way to step softly into my day.

What day is it, what day of the week? Hitting on that, I move on. What do I have to do today? What do I get to do today? Today, my favorite - haircut day! I start my new study of Ruth tonight, with a teacher I've never studied under. It's going to be great, I just know it. What else?

Where do I need to go? Work out, since I skipped it on Monday and we belong to a gym. Walmart, fill the car with gas for our Gettysburg trip this weekend. Pick up a tag for Dublin, to show he lives here now, if heaven forbid, he escapes the fenced yard.

What do I need to do? Pursuing the elusive goal of 'domestic goddess', the upstairs needs vacuuming and some potty-swishing. I think I'll bake those zucchini chocolate chip cookies, using the chocolate caramel chips I found at the grocery last week. Chicken soup to take to sewing tomorrow, because MaryAnn is too busy with more important things, like a new grandbaby. Check out the Holiday Organizer I read about at Ordinary Life Artist earlier this week, and start to fill it out. Continue to work on my Master Menu Plan. It's a dragon to slay, for sure!

How 'bout cyberspace? What needs to be done out there? Reservations to be made at the Lodge on the Lake for our fall trip. Look at the website Sarah sent me, for my Fall study plan, check out what to do about my hurting feet, work on my template a bit and read some sweet posts, catching up with friends.

Phone calls? There's Charlotte, my dear friend with enough accent to turn your ears on end. I played the message again last night, just to enjoy it one more time. Check in with Dad - how's golf, the weather, family there?

Lying in bed, all this running through my mind, the day stretches far and wide ahead of me, just waiting for me to get up and go grab it. What a gift it is to have purpose, plans for my days. The past twenty-five years have gone quicker than I ever imagined they would, likely the next twenty-five will also. Twenty-five years from now I will be an elderly woman, how sobering is that?! Many of today's activities will no longer be possible, at least they won't come as easily, to me. "Miah, it's time to get up and go grab the day." We'll start slow, breakfast for all the four-leggeds, bring in the paper, set out coffee for hubby, and grab my Bible. Pour some coffee and add Pumpkin Creamer.

I don't want to miss a bit of it, not even the smell of coffee with pumpkin creamer.
