I am sitting here with a much needed cup of coffee because I just woke up and it is morning and time to start the day. I do have some time before I have to get real serious because Tyke is still sound asleep on the bed and there will be no sign of life from him for a while yet. Gandhi is sitting on the kitchen counter patiently waiting to be fed. She has to wait a bit longer until I am truly functioning. First I have to take care of my caffeine intake.
I have no obligations today but to go to the pharmacy to pick up some medicines. I have no appointments and I really do not have to go grocery shopping yet, although I may consider doing it anyway. I will have to see how I feel about it later in the day. The temptation is great because then I can pick up some vanilla custard and goat's milk yogurt, but maybe I will be patient and wait until tomorrow. It is not as if we are starving for lack of groceries yet.
I am trying my best to get excited about starting the day, but I am not very successful yet. I think I have to wait for my medicines to start working too because I just took them. I just got another cup of coffee and Gandhi lifted her tail and farted right under my nose. She has a tendency to do unpleasant things like that. I think maybe they are signs of affection, but I may be mistaken. She also does it when she comes to lie down on the bed with me at night. Maybe they are farts of excitement and anticipation.
I think the second cup of coffee is starting to do its job and the medicines must have kicked in too because I feel a lifting of my spirits. Now I am ready to open the blinds and let the early morning daylight in. It will be good to go out in the fresh air and take Tyke for a walk. That is one of the nicest things about the early morning. It would be awful if I had no good reason to go out there so you know I will always have a dog until I am a very frail old lady.
I will get dressed and wake Tyke up and really start the day. There is no better moment than now.
