Shabbat Silence

Saturday's mornings are my new mornings of rest, since my weekday scheduled has adjusted and I'm not out late Tuesday nights anymore. I exercise Sunday through Friday, and I sleep later on Saturday (today until almost 6:50!) and spend the morning curle up with a cup of coffee and something to read.

This morning, I'm sitting in the hammock on my front porch, with my superhero coffee cup from universal studios and enjoying the heavy morning air. The neighborhood is silent right now, except for the birds and the crickets and a little bit of puttering about by the people around me: a garbage can being brought inside from yesterday, some lawn chairs being scrapped across the patio into the shade, and a woman taking her dog for a walk on the trail at the end of our block.

The Boy and Little Bear are dried as The Flash and Ultron, restively, as we are going to the comic convention in Monroeville this morning. I'm taking another fifteen minutes, though, to relax and mentally prepare myself for the day.

Peaceful Saturday; shabbat shalom. I can get behind this concept.
