Sunday Morning Before the Birds Sing

I've been finding myself rising early lately. First thing, Mr. Terrapin gets fed. Then nausea takes over. Finally relief. I sit and eat a bowl of yogurt, my way of neutralizing my churning stomach. Then, perhaps, I'll poke around on the internet...maybe blog as I'm d doing now. Then I do my "Yoga Momma" video if there's enough time. I discovered it recently as I've been wanting to try yoga and pregnancy seemed as good a time as any. I wish I could do classes too, but it's not really in the budget at the moment. After I'm done, my dear heart usually rises (sometimes I wake him) and I eat second breakfast with him. (Yes, ever since baby has come along I have to eat twice to start the day... yogurt and then something more solid.) We either head on a walk or watch Democracy Now or some PBS program. If we go for a walk, we'll usually take a little time afterward to go to the river and meditate. I love how routine the morning can be. I love how simple and quiet it is.

Today the sky is watering our garden, so I don't think we will be going on any walks. Jake is still in dreamland. The store does not open until eleven and I think I'm going to take my time this morning and revel in the quiet. Revel in the simple. And maybe have some good petting of the kitty. Good morning!
