The alarm clock went off at 7:00 am this morning. The coffee maker starting the sweet noise of humming, the smell of the heat being on for the first time in months filled the house, a sleeping Raynes was scooped up and placed in his hand-me down floral car seat so I could pull out of the drive way by 7:45 am. Mike and the girls were no where to be found as they went camping last night (picture tents, sleeping bags, camouflage).  Between photos and birthday parties Raynes and I had a full morning. I may need a day of rest after this day of rest.

While the day is not yet over, the simplicity of the sun waking up this chilly Sunday morning did bring me joy.
