Thirty-One

Is my age today.
Thirty One
I woke well before light began creeping into the Western sky, made a pipping mug of tea, and took myself to the ocean to watch the sun rise, walk the beach and listen to the dawn song.

Now I'm sitting at the kitchen counter eating strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar while BC makes me challah french toast.

I'd say the day is off to a WHOOMPING good start!

You don't have to CHALLAH.

Sounds so good. Wish we could be clinking together tonight over some great meal. Soon, soon. Let's do it in May, yes?
