The sun didn't quite decide to pop out until 8:30 or so this morning. Considering my entire apartment was shaking as if a mini earthquake was occurring due to construction on my street, I had awoken much earlier. I took the hazy clouds as a sign to allow myself some time to relax, reveling in a few happy thoughts before forcing myself up to start another busy day. Laundry remained unfolded and coffee didn't get brewed. That extra hour this morning felt reserved for soft music, the cat purring nearby, and watching as the light forced it's way through the shades slowly but surely.
