I woke this morning feeling a bit tired and wanting to return to bed; however, I hate wasting time when I am physically capable of moving forward.
The deck is bright and breezy, though still shaded by the house from the morning sunshine. It’s only 63-degrees and not expected to climb very high; a comfortable day awaits. And, very shortly, the marching band will be in the next door backfield and I do love listening to their rehearsals.
My first cup of coffee was taken in my study while chatting with The Boys while they lunched in London. I’d begun a new audiobook on The Constitution which I knew would garner much interest from Josh. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Dave joins the conversation and he decided to start reading the book so he would be involved in the dialogue. There are a few things unclear to me and having Joshua’s expertise rounding out the information is a huge help.
I am glad I decided to take my second cup of coffee on the deck, as well as my glass of Carnation Instant Breakfast. There’s much I hope to accomplish before my Thursday ZoomLunch with colleagues and friends.
Yes, I still think of returning to my bed for another hour of sleep but I am glad I overruled my own mind to enjoy working from the deck.
Even when you wish to take an easier route to your day, or a project, nudge yourself to move onward and make it a great day.
