Sweet Weekday Morning

During the summer months, I have the pleasure of working from home one day a week, which I absolutely love!



I make sure to indulge a little on these weekday mornings with a cup of steaming coffee out of my favorite over-sized mug...



a sweet treat like this jam-filled crepe...


and my favorite section of the paper. 


Good days tend to begin with slow and peaceful mornings, don't you think? Wishing you a bright and cheery start to your day!

Amazing way to indulge in yourself indeed.

I don't have frequent days off - for me it would be a day off - but when I do I give myself the 4 stars' treatment too ahahah

I seem to have so few opportunities to do so. Always taking care of this and that or those that it's good when we take care of our best friend.

Sometimes I wake up really early and do this too. Before the home, family and even Life swallows me, I open the kitchen door to listen to the birds, to enjoy the morning chill and I indulge in something that I'm sure the happy that will result from it will eat up ahahah

Go Nel!

It would be lovely to have that crepe every morning! Very tempting and such a perfect beginning to your day. I'll have to settle for my grapefruit and news via my computer. Isn't it appalling? I don't even take a newspaper anymore!
Have a lovely week!

I love early mornings in the garden with a good cup of Starbucks. When I worked it was non stop until I got to work. Then more non stop working. Now that I am retired I ease into the day - sometimes I don't get my shower until 11:oo a.m.
Retirement does have it's rewards.
Crepes look so yummy.
Have a great week.

It's nice to be retired and have a nice start to each morning. I like to check my favorite blogs and emails while I sip a cup of coffee. Enjoy your week! Hugs!

So good to hear from you! Tea is exactly what I ate with the pie!

Your morning looks so relaxing. I love waking up to coffee and a yummy treat! I love that you read a newspaper as well. I've been finding that I've missed reading the news in that format.

Take care,
Sarah

Thank you for your sweet words. I hope to be able to model all of my clothes in mid august - should be feeling a bunch better by then. Meanwhile non-picture or someone else in the photo pics are the norm for the next month or so. Thanks for your heartfelt comments.

My mouth is watering Sheri. I have just tried working from home and whilst I am not sure I loved it entirely it does have some benefits. Staying in your pyjamas in winter till lunch time whilst working was one. Happy days . Shell - A Darlings Nest.
