For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, she has given us the word “morning” and to use it any way we like.
I am a morning person. Not by choice, however. If I could, I’d sleep a lot later than I do. But I can’t. No matter what time it is at night when I shut my eyes, I find myself to be wide awake usually by around 6 or 6:30 am. If I am able to sleep past 7:00, that’s a late morning for me.
What I usually do when I first wake up in the morning is to pick up my iPhone and see what comments came in overnight while I was sleeping. That’s usually between 25-35 comments. I also check my Reader to see what the bloggers I follow have posted overnight. It’s a lot because I follow a lot of very prolific bloggers, most of whom post multiple times a day.
Hence, I spend a fairly significant portion of each morning reading and responding to comments and reading and commenting on posts that show up in my Reader.
I try to fit in coffee, breakfast, skimming the newspaper and my newsfeed, taking the dog out, and, oh yes, interacting with my wife in the morning as well.
Bottom line, I like the morning. It’s the start of a new adventure each day. And I like this song from Cat Stevens, as well.
