Today there are no workers in my house -- no contractor, or electrician, or plumber or painter or tiler -- just Maddie and I. This means I was able to have a normal morning, and the older I get, the more I enjoy my routines and rituals.
My morning starts with a workout of some sort, usually a pilates type DVD, to get me up and moving. On the days I don't start this way, I usually feel stiff and sluggish, so after 9 years, I still like to start my day this way.
After that I like to have a glass of Emergen-C and a bowl of whole grain cereal with lots of blueberries and nuts or granola before I hop in the shower.
I know the workers will be back soon, but today it was a real treat to be able to indulge in my old routine.
