A Rare Occasion
I did something this morning that I haven't done in ages. I got back in bed! I woke at my usual time (5:30ish) and fed the cats and dog, let the chickens out, made sure there was fresh water, and gave the horse a few oats. Then, I came back into the house and got in bed. Nothing is wrong. I am not sick. The cool temperature and perfect humidity of the morning just made me want to lounge around. If you remember we keep our house open during this time of the year so we have an inside/outside house and this morning all the conditions were perfect for snoozing. At 7:30, I realized my husband was still asleep. This is unheard of and though I am not his alarm clock I pushed him a bit and asked if he knew it was late. Of course he didn't. Since I had gotten back in bed before he realized I was gone, he thought it was still early. I stayed in bed as he frantically got ready for work and left. Before I knew anything more, I heard the children in the kitchen scrambling eggs. It was 9 o'clock. Needless to say, we are a bit behind schedule today.
