Morning Ritual.

Day 6 – National Blog Posting Month

I have this routine when I arrive at the office every morning.  Husband drops me off in front of my office building and I take a short walk to the local bakery store. Most mornings at the house are pretty hectic so I usually have time to get a coffee into me and little else.  I know this isn’t healthy but it’s just the way it is right now. So by the time I get to the office I’m hungry.  Walking into a bakery hungry is never a good idea.  Ever.

I have a weak spot for the pain de chocolat.  I’ve had three this week alone.  And I wonder why that last 5-10 lbs isn’t coming off! Actually, I don’t wonder at all.

I quite enjoy the short walk every morning.  Gives me some time alone before the onslaught of patients and their problems.  The fresh air is so nice this time of year. It’s crisp and a bit cool but not bone-chilling cold yet. I seem some regular faces on the street and we acknowledge one another with a slight nod of the head.  I get the sense that these folks are enjoying a quiet moment as well.
