Do you ever take the time to have breakfast on the porch?
Do you ever take time to just relax and enjoy the fresh new morning, listen to the birds, and revel in the warm sunshine?
I’m not much of a morning person – I seem to see a lot more sunsets than sunrises. I’ve resolved to go to bed earlier so I can begin my days earlier but it seldom happens. I’m a night owl I guess 😀
So for me, ‘Brunch’ has a much more melodious ring to it than ‘Early Morning Breakfast’. Whatever you want to call it – breakfast or brunch – if I can have it about 10:00 am I am all for it.
While I may not be a morning person, I really don’t lay in bed all morning. I’m usually up by 7:30, which I know is not early for a lot of you, but it works for me. Travis usually leaves for work by then, my girls all inherited my love for sleeping in, and the house is still and quiet for a couple of hours.
I get my coffee, my Bible, my laptop, and my phone and curl up on the couch to enjoy my quiet time. Right now I am spending time in Isaiah. I check my email. I read some blogs. I check facebook. Make sure my blog hasn’t disappeared 😉
I love the mornings I can spend a couple of hours this way. It doesn’t happen every day – some days I have deadlines looming and I have to limit my time to about 10 minutes. Forget the blogging and facebooking, sometimes my email doesn’t even get checked.
Some mornings I get a sweet interruption in the form of my cuddly, warm, 7-year old daughter, who is usually the first girl out of bed. Some mornings I get them up before they wake on their own. Some days we have appointments. Some days we need to get going on school before noon. Some days I just want them to learn that it can be a good thing to learn to get up early 😀
We rarely have breakfast on the porch, but I’m thinking a Breakfast Picnic just might be a fun summer thing to do. Or we could spread a quilt on the lawn in front of my Rusty Fence and enjoy the flowers. Which, by the way, I need to share again – you will not believe how big the flowers are already!
What would you serve if you had Breakfast on the Porch? Would you go all out and make a stack of pancakes and omelets on the side? Or would you just serve a loaf of fresh-baked bread and open a jar of jam?
