tea

Normally in the mornings I get up and go into the kitchen and put water on for a cup of tea, go into the living room and turn the computer onand back into the kitchen to make my tea. That has not been the way it is since Friday. It is amazing at what I do now before that first cup of tea.

Since I have been horse sitting since Friday, I get up , get dressed and go take care of that horse first off. In addition to walking it for 20 minutes, I have to scoop poop and urine soaked shavings out of the stall, soak 2 flakes of hay for 20 minutes and put clean water in the water bucket. All before drinking my tea! I don't have to do that before drinking my tea, but I do. I like to relax and drink my tea without rushing. There is no way I could enjoy it knowing that that poor horse was waiting for me in her stall, depending on me to take care of her needs.

Time to get out there and walk her again.

  1. Wow you do a lot when you first wake up! I'm lucky to make it to the computer to check email.

  3. I'm sorta like you in a way (don't be too frightened!!) in that I like to get the unpleasant stuff out of the way before doing something I really enjoy.  My "tea" is usually beer though.  ;)

    what a good person you are..and you are saving that horse.  I scanned some pictures of my favorite horse last night into my blog. I miss him so much, and We have been apart almost twenty five years now.

  6. Honey, in order to do all that in the crack of dawn, I'd have to inject pure crack in my veins when the alarm clock went off!  LOL!

  7. You have my admiration!  I wouldn't want to do all that before a cup of coffee!

  8. I admire your dedication and strength, and I understand trying to get stuff done early so one can relax over tea or breakfast. Margo

  9. Funny how that works ... responsibility before relaxation!  My husband will often comment, "I don't know how you get all of that done before you sip your coffee."  I tell him it's all about commitment!  :)
