It’s a rainy morning here today. It’s cool outside and I was up not long after five with Mr. Michie. He has a long day ahead of him and a late school night, so I made one of his favourites for breakfast: buttermilk biscuits and sausage patties.

I am not always a morning person, but I do love being up early, when the rest of the world is still asleep and everything is quiet. I like the amount I can get accomplished in the morning before the clock turns to double digits. I turned on a lamp in the den and put on some music while I went about making biscuits.

This morning my music of choice was Carole King. She is one of my favourites. You can’t go wrong with a good cup of coffee, a hot breakfast, and Carole King on a rainy morning.
