It’s no secret around our house that mornings are not our best time. Aside from Entrepreneur, who is one of those annoying larks, the rest of us don’t do mornings very well. It’s….well…forced behavior. At least that’s the case for me.
But PJ’s theme this month is morning, so here goes…….
Morning has broken #1
There is something to be said for sunrises. They do have their place. I love how the shadows stretch their long fingers towards me in this shot. It’s almost as if they’re reaching for me….probably to kidnap and force me to wake up. But, they’re too late. The 35F temps slapping me in the face already did that as I walked Peanut to the bus stop.
Morning has broken #2
Speaking of shadows, this solitary shadow is from a morning walk. It’s been extremely difficult for me to get back into the habit of walking since the passing of our Golden Retriever, Tanner, in September. I’ve found as long as I meet up with a neighbor and have someone to talk to as I walk, I’m okay. But, when they drop off at their house, I’m left to walk alone and the solitary shadow feels the loss of that wonderful walking buddy.
Morning has broken #3
Peanut is fascinated by the morning frost. She brings white-fringed leaves in the house only to discover the delicate crystals tend to melt quickly in 68F. This shot is SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera) and I didn’t do anything to it in post-processing except crop it. No…really…I didn’t. Scout’s honor.
Morning has broken #4
Twix is probably the second-best morning person in our home. After breakfast, she’s happy to survey her domain of the front and back yards out the windows. Then it’s on to deconstructing the inside of the house.
Morning has broken #5
Autumn is quickly transforming itself into winter, but I’m still holding on to the cozy colors, smells and textures of the season. While it’s not uncommon for me to start my day with a cup of hot tea with honey, it seems to taste just that much better on those morning that have a chill in the air.

We spent a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday in Jacksonville Beach, Florida with The Golfer. This is how we started our turkey day morning….mimosas for everyone!
[yawn] Now, I believe I need a nap. Try and take time to make your way over to PJ’s to see how morning affects the others. 😉
