3 B T Tuesday (that's Three Beautiful Things...)

Ok well, it's not quite Tuesday while I'm writing this, but it will be soon, and the Shepherd & I will be getting up several times during the night to watch the lunar eclipse . The times that they occur when we have a CLEAR SKY like tonight are so rare, we decided that it would be worth it to miss a little bit of sleep.

Meanwhile, it's Three Beautiful Things Tuesday and today, my topic is Sunday mornings - specifically sleepy, summery Sunday mornings. It is a day when the Shepherd gets up, feeds the screaming meamies (oh, I mean, the sheep), comes in, has a bowl of oatmeal (he's lowering his cholesterol) and then, uncharacteristically, stretches out on the couch and takes a nap for a couple of hours. We don't have church during the summer, so I say "Good for him!" And I can sleep in a little longer and not feel guilty because he is up working and I'm not (well, OK, I don't feel REAL guilty, just a little bit guilty...)

So here are my three beautiful things about Sunday mornings:

  • Waking up with out the alarm; my summer Sunday alarm is the birds calling outside our window; (and maybe a hungry cat asking for her breakfast)

  • Sneaking into the kitchen (so as not to wake the sleeping tiger), feeding the hungry cat so SHE won't wake the sleeping tiger, snagging the Funny Papers and climbing back into my still warm bed to see what's happening with all my "imaginary" friends; maybe snoozing a little more;

  • What's that I smell - The Shepherd has woken up and has heated up that slice of ham we got to share for breakfast. Oh, yum, maybe I'll get out of bed after all. (I am very much a lazy bones on Sunday morning, as is somebody else, can you tell???)

Congratulations for getting up to see the eclipse. My DH and I somehow coudln't manage that. We remained in Neelix's mode.

Now that is what I call a nap. I would love to be doing that right now instead of going off to work yet another job today. I have managed to keep all the jobs away from my Sundays. I dont'have to get dressed, I can watch lame Lifetime Movie Network movies, knit and do all of that in my ugly jammies. It's my favorite day of the week for sure!!

Aren't Sundays great?! We have found that , now keeping our "tigers" out of the bedroom, we can actually sleep later on Sundays and it's wonderful.

And I snag the funnies too...
