6:30


At 6:30 in the morning the hustle and bustle of downtown is less hustley-bustley and more of a calmer, refined busy-ness as the Mayo campus rubs the sleep out of its eyes and starts the day. At 6:30 the festive decorations on the light posts lining the streets are beautiful; it's easier to find parking; and the gym is less crowded. At 6:30 in the morning there are some people snow-blowing or shoveling their way out of their driveways in the dark, and drivers seem to be more careful, in less of a hurry. And if you start your day at 6:30 in the morning, you just might have time to sit and have a coffee with your hubby.

Now, this hour of being out and about is more of a rarity than a frequency for me, but today it was fun. Tomorrow I might sleep in. We'll see.

On my agenda for the rest of today: go to fabric store, finish sewing stocking stuffer gifts, start working on quilt, transcript editing, pick friends up from hospital, go through closet and get rid of clothes.
