The Perfect Monday Morning

...and this is it. Here I sit in my old rocker recliner, built in the 40's but solid as a rock and very comfortable. Fits my little round body like a glove. It might not be pretty and the gold fabric is certainly outdated but its outlasted hubby's two expensive recliners. He's heading towards number three:)

The temperature has finally dropped to a cool 57 degrees, bringing a relief to us Floridians we've long waited for. I've opened up the doors to air out the house and enjoy the crisp air. The reality is by late afternoon it will be warm again, the doors will be closed and the air conditioner turned back on. But until then I intend to drink it up.

The TV is off. We sometimes just like to sit and enjoy the quiet in the mornings. And talk. We're both looking forward to a weekend away at Vero Beach. My daughter's wedding is this Sunday. Thanksgiving will be here soon. As I drink my favorite coffee, Barnie's White Christmas, I watch the kids (our cats Rufus and Gin Gin) running through the house as they play. Soon they'll be heading off to their hiding spots to sleep most of the day away.

This is the perfect morning to me.

As a fellow Floridian, I'm loving this weather too. We waited a long time for some temperate climes.

It sounds like a perfect way to spend the morning. So wonderfully relaxing!
