Holiday Sunrise

The puppies have created a new experience for me - seeing a holiday morning sunrise.  Their routine doesn't change with holidays -  5:30 am is their breakfast and morning walk.  Something about a holiday morning is even quieter than a weekday - especially if you are out driving.  There are no cars on the road and everyone is on the mid morning schedule - probably after a late night family gathering or movie.

So this Memorial Day morning, I had the house to myself (since everyone else was snoozing).  After the puppies walk, I fired up the espresso machine and watched the sun continue to rise - sipping a coffee and listing to the chirping birds. Time to reflect on things to be grateful for and to remember those who paved the way for where we are today.

By 7:15am the early risers (Susan) began to appear.  The day now officially starts - the sun is up.
