Saturday Morning

I love Saturday mornings with Neil. The day is so full of anticipation! I love waking up to a sunlit window with no alarm, just the natural rhythm of life. We always sleep in, usually till 9:30, because I have to be up by 10:00 to catch my favorite show, The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross! I am captivated by the way he creates incredible landscapes in only 30 minutes! This week he made a sunlit forest, fresh after the rain. The clear puddles reflected the light shining through the leaves of the dense canopy, and tender green moss covered the forest floor.

I started making Banana Bread to surprise Neil for when he woke up. Last night was the 24 hour prayer vigil at our church and Neil and my time slot was 2:00 am. I fell asleep around 10:00 but Neil stayed up the whole time! He prayed and then was asleep immediately after.

I woke back up around 1:30, got ready for bed, prayed for 30 minutes and then laid in bed for hours! My mind was full of craft ideas, creative projects, organizing the office, my office at work, lots of fun exciting projects! I think I finally went to sleep around 5:00 and slept soundly till 9:30. In all I think we got the same amount of sleep, we just went about it in different ways!

Neil woke up with a craving for pancakes (which is a rare occurrence that I wasn't about to turn down!)

The day is full of possibilities and I am anxious to see what will unfold :)
