Morning Routine

Waking up…wandering into the kitchen for that first cup of coffee…firing up the laptop…opening up the morning email…checking the overnight blog stats…checking the weather forecast both here and in the mountains…

It always hits me as a little odd when I check the weather and the temperature here is lower than the temperature half a country north and 3000 feet higher. It doesn’t happen often, just often enough to bring a amile to my face. And it never lasts long. If it did, all of those folks would probably be heading elsewhere to live. Though, looking at the forecast I notice we are going up into the 70’s while the Blue Ridge is headed down into the 40’s. It looks like the “cool” front that brought me my mid 70’s yesterday will bring the mountains mid 40’s today. Fred, if you are reading this…Throw another log on the stove, you’ll be needing it.

Young gradnson just joined me in the kitchen. He is playing on his mat on the floor. So far that keeps him occupied for a bit and lets me knock out a few things at the computer. It’ll be breakfast time shortly though…One the little guy figuresout how to crawl I am going to be in trouble. Right now if he gets of his pad he just spins around in circles till you put him back among the toys…

Well I better get finished with my email…Later.
