Monday Morning Coffee

Good Monday morning, my friends! As in years and years past, I find myself at the beach this week of September. And as in years past, I am blessed to be joined with my entire family at different points of the week. I made my pumpkin spiced coffee and took it down to the beach this morning, and as always, found peace in the unchanging rhythm of the waves rolling into the shore and back out again. 
 


A first this year. We brought the pups! And so far, all is well! They adjusted to the new atmosphere and the new trek to go the bathroom. For the record, it is out the door, down the hall, into the elevator, out the door, across the parking lot, and into the grass. No problem.


Have a lovely Monday, my friends!
I will be tidying the condo, doing laundry, and reading while my people do beach things. Because that is who I am, and that makes me happy! I hope you find time to do something that makes you happy today!

Billie Jo

  11. Oh yeah, coffee at the beach! I love that you brought the pups, they love being included, don't they? And it's so amazing how quickly they acclimate to a new place. I get it, that you want to stay back and tidy up. A few years back, we went away into the woods of Virginia for a weekend, like ten of the kids went on a hike, but Abigail and I stayed back, went for a milder walk, made a wonderful dinner for the rest to have when they returned from their hike, it was fun for me! I do like "mom"-ing. :)

  17. I just spent about 20 minutes catching up on all the blog posts I've missed- I went back to work, and man, I am just SPENT by the end of the day and going to bed at 9:00. But I missed your pics and stories, so tonight I made time, and I SO enjoyed myself. Happy late b-day, happy start of fall, and happy b-day to your younger hubby (mine is younger too!). Loved the pics of off the leash puppy- so cute!!! And also, the one with hubby and his kids was AWESOME!!
