Dawn yesterday morning brought a fresh dusting of snow, single digit temperatures, and the brightest beautiful full moon. I threw a coat on over my pajamas, slipped my feet into my rubber crocs, and set my tripod up on the side porch to capture the scene (and oh what a scene it would have been if you would have seen me!).
When my dad called for our daily chat at approximately 7:05ish (he’s a school bus driver in his retirement, and we are making up for lost time, so we talk every morning between his high school and middle school run), he commented on the beautiful moon he was looking at while we were talking.
It made me smile to think we were chatting and sharing the same moon together, if even for only a few moments. Our morning chats are so special. Sometimes I talk the whole time, and sometimes he does. Sometimes we have lots to stay, and sometimes not so much, but it always makes me smile and is such a wonderful way to start my day.
Dad reads my blog every day, but since he gets up at 4:30am and is on the road before my blog posts each day at 6am, he always comments about the post from the day before. I think it’s sweet that he always reads it (and sometimes finds typos for me to fix). But it makes me smile, because he reads every single word – even every ingredient in my recipes (wondering if he would like it as he’s a pretty picky pop). I’m so fortunate to have him in my life as one of my guys.
Hopefully he is smiling reading this (and hopefully there are no typos). 🙂
Happy Friday everyone!
Cheers & Hugs,
PS Look for a yummy cookie recipe post tomorrow: Chocolate Sprinkle Cherry Kiss Cookies!
