I was up early this morning - at 4:40AM. I couldn't go back to sleep so I took the dogs out to potty, washed last night's dishes, and made Alfred coffee and a scambled egg sandwich on toasted bread with mayo, cheese, salt and pepper. His alarm clock went off at 5:30AM but he didn't get up, so I was able to surprise him with breakfast! He said he could get used to that. *smile* I've never been much of a morning person - but I am working on it.

We enjoyed each other's company as we watched the morning news. Then he had to get ready for work and I packed his lunch (leftover chili topped with cheese and crackers) and I threw his uniforms in the washer to wash. I walked him out to the car and hosed it off with water so the windows would be frost free and clear for his drive to work.

No school work for the kids today so I will clean house, figure out something tasty for dinner and will try to make Cowboy Cookies.

What are you doing in your homemaking today?

Good Morning, Tracy! Four o'clock was just about the time I finally fell asleep only to be up by 7:00 to babysit Lulu today. I have always wanted to be a morning person but, when I have the chance to sleep in, I do! I think I will bake something yummy, do some laundry, and take another walk today. Have a great one!

Hi Tracey
I cooked breakfast for Jeff and I before he left for work - bacon and egg sandwiches on toast,
I cleaned out the front flower beds for winter and took Theo for a walk.
Later, I'll do a few errands and supper may be a roast with some veggies and salad.
Tonight is a Pampered Chef party to go to.

I'm not a morning person either. I need to drink coffee and stare out the window for at least half an hour before I can even think about functioning - and then I don't say much til noon. Find me at night though and I'm wide awake and ready to go. We have breakfast for supper a lot around here LOL
