I was surprised to wake up before my alarm sounded! This was a good thing. I get more done in the mornings of each day. So it was today. I was up just before 5 am. My coffee pot is preset to start brewing at 5 am so I let the clock tick until the coffee pot started instead of manually starting it. At any rate, once I had a cup filled with coffee I was off and running. I did some of my laundry. I did a little reading. I ate a good breakfast. I fed my dogs. It all felt right because I was not rushed. I got to talk with my wife before heading out the door to go to work.
I noticed on the weather gauge before walking out the door that it was 47 F out. It was sort of cloudy.
I stopped by the church on the way to feed and water the church cats. I also did a walk through to check on things. Everything was in order as far as I could tell, so I proceeded to commute to Charlottesville. It was an easy commute. A little more traffic than usual for a Saturday but perhaps people were traveling home after the holiday. I arrived at my office by 9 am. The day was pleasant.
Advent begins tomorrow.
