My alarm clock went off way too early this morning. All I could think of was the long "to do" list I had in front of me today (not the least of which is working nine hours).
The sun had not risen above the horizon when I pulled the car out of the gravel drive to take my son to the junior college and then my husband to see his doctor.
Can you feel the tension already? :)
As it turned out, we made good progress through traffic so my son arrived early for his class and my husband let me drop him off a half an hour early at his doctor's office Downtown.
This allowed me a full fifty minutes to drive to the Starbucks between Downtown and Campus to enjoy a cup of coffee.
It was there I allowed myself a small mini-vacation by sitting at a sidewalk cafe table, sipping a latte and nibbling a scone. However, not just any latte nor just any flavor of scone.
No... for we have the return of PUMPKIN SPICE lattes and pumpkin scones (and muffins). Let the Hallelujah chorus begin!
My day continues to be quite long. I will most likely fall into bed about an hour after arriving home from work this evening.
But all is well with the world.
