The morning is my favorite time of day. I love the quiet and peacefulness that morning provides. I also love the feeling of a brand new day or a fresh start.
This Saturday morning was no different. I awoke around 8am feeling refreshed and ready for the day. I fed Boo and Sophia and then put them outside for one of their daily matches of tug-of-war:
After putting a fresh pot of coffee on, I had the sudden urge to clean and declutter the kitchen. Strangely, cleaning my kitchen is quite the stress reliever and I always feel so good when my kitchen is spotless.
I started in the fridge, throwing out old food items that had been sitting around for too long or had expired (like old condiments). Then I cleaned the counter tops and sink and cleared off the counter of odd items that just don’t belong (like batteries and recyclables) and put them in their proper place.
I love having clean counter tops. I can’t stand having too many things cluttered around.
I get my cleaning habits from my dad. He always said, “Everything in its place and a place for everything”. I agree, dad! 🙂
Candle Lit Breakfast
After cleaning the kitchen and getting some laundry started, it was time for breakfast. Andy was still sleeping, so I decided to surprise him with a candle lit breakfast.
On the menu:
- Cheesy Eggs (2 eggs with a splash of milk + shredded cheddar cheese)
- Whole Wheat English Muffin
Breakfast was served!
Surprisingly I was not in the mood for eggs this morning. Maybe it was because I had breakfast for dinner the other night and had my fill of cheesy eggs. Instead I made a bowl of cereal with fruit, a meal I don’t think I will ever be sick of!
In the mix:
- Shredded Wheat
- Flax Plus Multibran Flakes
- Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch
- Organic 2% Milk
Coffee with organic half and half rounded out my breakfast.
So far this Saturday is turning into a great day. Boo definitely thinks so too, as he’s spending the morning playing with his favorite toy (he even sometimes sleeps with it!)
Now Andy and I are heading to Whole Foods to stock up on groceries for the week then I need to tackle some more cleaning. Have a great Saturday everyone!
