Day 5: The Quiet of the Morning

The quite of Saturday mornings is what I wait for all week; to drink my hazelnut coffee out of my favorite coffee mug, to read the newspaper that my niece writes for, to sit and just enjoy the calm silence after a long week.

Today was no different. I curled up on the couch, cozy under a warm blanket with my pup, Finnegan and for the next hour I just enjoyed the quite; not worrying about cleaning, laundry, school work, or anything else on my long To-Do-List.

This hour helps me to still my overly active brain, almost like a life time out…until the phone rings and I’m snapped back into reality and so begins my day.

  1. I hear you on that awesomeness!! Nothing better, especially when your little one sleeps in or takes a nice nap to give you that time. Problem is it is now 6:45 and I’m still doing it. Is that really a problem though?


  2. Beautifully written, Toni. This piece is super calm and tranquil. I love it.

    I love my morning coffee, too. Especially if I can get up and have a few moments of solitude before the crazies wake up.


  3. The sofa, a book, a quiet moment–love the added bonus of the sun coming in the window and warming me. Yes, I can relate. Thanks for the image, the reminder, and the peace of quiet moments lived in the midst of busyness.

  4. Love my weekend mornings too! It is hard to break away and re-enter the world of busy! You slice is a great reminder to take that time. I see your newspaper- I used to live in a Columbia too (Columbia, MD),
