I typically get up around 4:30-5 am everyday. There is something about mornings that I just love. Maybe it’s the fact that no one else is up and Abbey and I go downstairs, enjoy a cup of coffee and make pancakes while listening to classical music. Lately I’ve been obsessed with Grieg and Rachmaninov. The mornings are a quiet, peaceful time for me to collect my thoughts and get my head on straight for the day. I was never a morning person really until I started the “corporate life”. Since I was in constant communication with everyone under the sun from 7 am to the late hours of the night, mornings were the only time that I could just be me. In the mornings, I was only a person enjoying the sunrise and not a corporate lackey. Mornings were my time; in fact they still are.

Since I am a bum, it gives me a lot of time to go outside and walk around. My morning routine consists of me and Abbey walking to the dog park to play fetch for an hour. It’s about 1.5 miles from my house, so it’s good cardio for the two of us. Going to the dog park forces both of us to come out of our shell and speak to other beings (I’ve recently come to terms that I am an introvert and am slowly accepting it. More on that later.). And dare I say it’s been quite pleasant!

Anyway I absolutely love my morning time with my fur-child! Being able to go out and venture around is incredibly calming. I’ve actually started walking around everywhere solely for the fact that weather like this does not stick around in Vegas unfortunately. Soon this city will live up to the nickname I gave it: Satan’s butt-crack. Seriously, it got up to 120 degrees last summer, so I’m not looking forward to it. But currently I’m enjoying the present and the glorious California-like weather we’re having. I think the bum life suits me 🙂
