The Amazing Jeannie and Her Wonderful Morning!

I had a wonderful morning! 
 I had coffee and read the paper in my garden.  Then cut back some unruly plants and picked my (currently) favorite Rose along with a few others.
I put new sheets on my bed, complete with freshly ironed old Pillowcases.
  Embroidered, of course.
I vacumed the carpets and cleaned the kitchen. Put in a load of wash.
 And made French Toast for Breakfast.
I spent time training Strider, who was a willing subject.  Most of the time.

I sat and read  a couple chapters in the book of Isaiah, which I am excited to be studying in the fall with Bible Study Fellowship.
I sat and stitched down the front facing on my current project.  A Daygown, no surprise!!

And all this by 9:30 am!!  I was , myself, amazed!!

 It had something to do with a malfunctioning house alarm that sent a piercing wail through my household at 5:30 am.  I was not only awake, but totally alert!  But I don't recommend it on a regular basis.

The best part is ....   it is only 9:30 am and I have the day before me.  Sewing!

Whew! I was just wondering what time you got up when I read what happened. I think...being Saturday and I work Mon-Fri, 8-5....I would have found a way to go back sleep at 5:30. But then I would not have accomplished what you did. I was just getting up when you posted this...and yes, we are in the same time zone.

Gongrats on making such wonderful use of your time. I wasted mine sleeping, but I needed it.

Laughing as I had that type of day today. Up by 5:30 and by 9:30 was in a town 2 hours away after the first shopping trip. I would have rather been sewing...
