Daily Routine

Hearing the high-pitched whistle of the tea kettle, the boiling water poured into the glass mug.

Feeling my body move to the exercise video, the instructor guiding me, the beat of the music pushing me on.

Pushing the button on the coffee pot, hearing it gurgle as it brews liquid joy, the smell making me sigh.

Sitting at my desk, the clickity-clack of the keyboard oh so satisfying as each letter and word is typed.

The sizzling of food cooking in the stainless-steel pan, its delicious flavors waiting to be consumed.

Opening the mailbox, hoping undiscovered treasures lay inside.

Colors fill the television screen and sound floods the air, the story taking me to another place.

Barking and licking, my dog making me pay attention to him, grabbing a toy so we can play.

The scent of paper with each turn of the page, the book revealing what happens next.


Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed it. Likes, shares, follows, tips, pledges, and subscriptions are always cherished. :)
