early morning

Mmm. Today's one of those rare days when I'm actually happy to be up in the early morning. Maya woke me up by trying to climb into bed at 6:20 (sigh) and I finally gave in and got up just before 7. We took a walk outside, where it was still dark, cold and crisp, and by the end of the walk, I was wide awake and actually enjoying it. When we came inside. I did a load of dishes, then made myself a latte. I've spent the last twenty minutes drinking my latte, eating one of the huge apple muffins we cooked last night (from Karina Sumner-Smith's wonderful recipe!) and watching the sun rise through the window.

Outside there's still a white layer of frost across the sidewalks, looking teasingly like snow...

Maya's napping on a rolled-up comforter in the corner of the kitchen, and one of my favorite CDs (Nordic Roots) is playing on my laptop.

It's a lovely way to start the day.


And just for fun - when I went to the North Side Records website just now to find the Nordic roots link, I found the link to a wonderfully quirky little video of an anime girl swinging a leek (!) to the soundtrack of "Ieva's Polka", by the Finnish band Loituma. Odd and yet strangely hypnotic...check it out!
